The Champagne Tour Co. has provided private tours of the famous Prestige Houses & family vineyards for nearly 20 years. If you are looking for overnight, luxury or single-day tours, we have a varied selection to make the most of your time in this beautiful part of the French countryside.
Starting around 9am or 1:45pm, you can enjoy the region's highlights on a cellar tour at a famous house, like Moët et Chandon or Veuve Clicquot, plus a pre-arranged private appointment at a family estate to discover the key stages of production. You may even have time for a visit to Dom Perignon's Abbey in Hautvillers or Reims Cathedral.
Whether you are a first-time visitor or a wine professional, we'll help you decide on the perfect mix between visits to international prestige brands like Pommery or Ruinart, lesser-known Champagne Houses like Gratien or Ayala, and small grower domaines. Your English-speaking driver guide will pick you up in Reims, Epernay, Paris or CDG airport.
If you desire to have a better understanding of the many facets of Champagne, this is for you. During your trip, you will visit 6 to 8 vineyards and houses, tasting 20 to 25 different Champagnes. This tour will give you a chance to taste vintage Champagnes as well as Champagne produced from grapes in Premier and Grand Cru villages.
For groups of 9 or more, we will provide a coach, reserve the cellars and tasting visits, and help decide and book the best lunch experience within your budget. If you want more in-depth knowledge, regional insights and local expertise, an experienced English-speaking local guide will accompany you

Dom Perignon, Ruinart, Veuve, and Taittinger represent the most famous International Grandes Maisons where we can organize private cellar visits & lunch in countryside estates. Our private Heritage Estate visits are similar but focus on the independent family Houses better known in France.
We have created unique experiences that match Champagne's global recognition as its luxury brand. We'll introduce you to some of the best vineyard in Champagne, vine to table visits where you can pair Grand Cru champagnes and educative single plot varietal tastings.
With more time we can extend your visit to the vineyards and Chateaux of Loire Valley, Burgundy, Alsace, Rhone Valley and Provence. We'll create themes for you to compare grapes of different regions and pair them with fine dining and local gastronomy.
