Some Testimonials from Tripadvisor

The tour has small party sizes (which was perfect). Pickup was on time and the tour was very well conducted. Peggy (our driver) has an interest in wine as was able to explain the processes involved, but also talk informatively about what to expect from the wines. The tour was brilliant in that is visited small, medium and large wineries. The tour was well planned and flexible enough to allow more or less time at places as was required. it covered the wineries, but also the area itself so the tour party came away with a holistic view of the Champagne region. A definite recommendation for this tour. I would do this again, but would probably ask for a different scope – ie more small wineries, or a different order of visit. But the tour as it was presented was perfectly adequate and a lot of fun. A definite recommendation.

I am a big fan of custom tours with small groups – this one was one of them. We travelled with another family which combined into a group of 6 in a minivan. The iteninary was carefully thought out, took care of personal needs (vegetarian food in my case), and of course, was up close and personal with the cellar masters – things i believe some bigger groups may not have the privilege to experience. Peggy was very helpful, knowledge-able and made it feel like a picnic!

Really the best way to go from Paris. Peggy was superb as a guide, driver, and educator on the fine points of Champagne. She took us to two excellent small houses and one big one. We learned about the process from the grapes to the pop of the cork. Spent time chatting with the actual producers and tasting some wonderful champagne. She takes you through the back roads and gives an insiders feel to the trip. You could not do this on your own unless you happen to have some great contacts.

My boyfriend and I went on the C La Vigne tour in late April with Peggy and had the trip of our lives. It was a full day of incredible sights, incredible champagne, and incredible history. We got to the do the Champagne Sabering and it was totally worth it! So much fun! Peggy is a wealth of knowledge and so sweet too! I looked online and found C La Vigne and it seemed like something fun and different. It ended up being the highlight of our whole trip. We couldn’t have asked for a better time. Thanks, Peggy!

Thank you Peggy for making my birthday memorable. We had an experience of a lifetime, Your knowledge of the area, the tour pace, and great selection of the champagne houses was too good to be true. Since we had an active 4 year old, you were so patient and gave us enough free time to spend on our own. We will definitely be back soon and looking forward to seeing you. If you want the complete Champagne experience from a grape to your glass – this is the tour for you!
