We are a local and independent Tour Operator from Reims specializing in privately guided tours of the Champagne region. We are proud and honored to welcome guests from all over the world!
Our tours allow you to focus on your specific centers of interest and at the same time immerse yourself in Champagne from a truly local perspective.
With over 8 years of experience as a private guide and story-teller, Isabelle is a local who knows the locals. She enjoys connecting your world with theirs, as well as traveling between key moments of the past and the present. Focusing exclusively on your preferences, she has a unique way of unveiling the secret stories of our most and less famous characters and will design the perfect itinerary for you. Let her push the most hidden doors for you! One day won’t be enough!
Your day tours are most frequently and fluently run in English, even though we are French native speakers. Most of our champagne tours being private, we are also very happy to run them in German, Spanish, or to provide some explanations in Mandarin Chinese.
Use us as a tool to gain understanding of the uniqueness and spirit of our sparkling wines: a bit of French art de vivre, a touch of famous characters and humor, a sip of local arts, culture and history, all of it blended with the king of wines... You'll be drinking stars! *
This is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity, so we want to make sure that, on your way back home, you will not only have unforgettable memories, but that you cannot wait to come back!
* Quote attributed to Dom Perignon : "Come quickly, i'm drinking stars"
Isabelle-thank you so much! It was such a great day all around--probably the best of our trip!

It was a rainy and foggy day yesterday, but Isabelle made our day in Champagne shine! Her local knowledge, good explanations, and warm manner were wonderful. I will always remember sitting at the table with the family winemaker -and of course, the outstanding champagne! Isabelle went above and beyond in our time together. All the best,

Isabelle, Thank you very much indeed for a wonderful tour on Saturday. It was an excellent experience and we appreciated the informative, relaxed feel of the day. I'm back in the UK with all but one of the bottles of champagne. I'll certainly provide your details to a colleague of mine who I know would appreciate your tour. Oh, and we enjoyed the grapes over breakfast with some yoghurt! Excellent start to Sunday!
- Gillian & Matt - October 2013 -
Isabelle, thank you for an absolutely fascinating day and introducing us to small family houses we would never have accessed without your excellent knowledge of the region.

I just wanted to thank you again for an amazing tour on Saturday! We really enjoyed ourselves. The three tours were all so different and interesting, they were perfect ways to see the various aspects of Champagne production, I canâ€™t wait to drink my bottles of champagne and be reminded of the wonderful day we spent touring the Reims area, thanks to you. I think you helped create the perfect send off for Angela before she gets married in a few weeks, I know she had a great time! We all did. If I ever find myself back in the area I will let you know and book another tour. Iâ€™d love to do it again!

Hello Isabelle, Wanted to drop you a note to thank you for an amazing day. Mark and I had such a great time and really enjoyed your company.
- Caroline & Mark - May 2014 -
Nancy and I very much enjoyed the time we spent with you. We also appreciated your advice for Saturday. We did not have any trouble bringing home the five bottles and I noticed several people checking cases onto our flight. I asked one person and they said that they regularly bring wine home from France and the worst that happens is that sometimes they have to pay tax. Nancy and I really appreciated the time you spent with us and look forward to seeing you on a future trip. When we have a moment, we will write a review for Tripadvisors.

Thank you for the wonderful and fascinating tour of the champagne houses. It was truly wonderful to access the small champagne houses and also to have lovely insight from the owners regarding their amazing quality champagnes. Graham and I learnt a lot about champagne and loved the gastronomic experience at lunch.

We had a great time with you, and the tour is a great memory for us. Until my next visit, Mike

Fran and I enjoyed your guided tour through the Champagne area in September. We especially enjoyed our stops at the Fernand Lemaire winery (pictures attached) and the church where Dom Perignon is buried. We are looking forward to enjoying their champagne over the holidays. We hope to return as there was so much more weâ€™d like to see. Thanks again for your hospitality!
