My wife and I enjoyed this day trip with Victor Chevrot of Wine Passport last week. I cannot overstate how much fun we had. Victor selected three Champagne Houses for us to visit--one very large, one small and one medium sized. Each was different but all greeted us with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We had had a very nice lunch, paired with different champagnes at one, and tastings at the other two. We visited the extensive cellars of the large house and had a tour of the processing equipment and fermentation tanks at the other. We also visited the Chapel at the Abby of Hautvillers and Dom Perignon's final resting place. Victor is very knowledgeable. We could not imagine a better guide or better experience. Without hesitation, I recommend this excursion.

(I'm sure no one has ever said..) Champagne in Champagne!
If you're going to visit France, then you have to try champagne. And if you're going to drink champagne, what better place to drink it than at the wineries where it is produced!!

Our tour guides, Richard of Reunion Island (our driver) and Victor were fantastic hosts. Being an early start (7am ex Paris), Richard understood that, at that time of day, most hotel restaurants were not yet open for breakfast. As such, he stopped at a bakery and brought us fresh croissants for breakfast before heading off on the leisurely drive to Epernay.

On site we visited a major winery (in this case Moët & Chandon) and then two smaller wineries, one of which provided us with a sumptuous luncheon. A few other sights were taken in as well, not to mention the numerous, picturesque French villages we passed through.

All of us on the tour were from English speaking countries and this was neither a problem for the Wine Passport hosts nor the staff at all of the wineries we visited. This tour is a fantastic day out and I, for one, would highly recommend it. I would gladly do it again (this time making room in my suitcase for some takeaways)!!!

Great Experience
My wife & I enjoyed every minute of our trip to the Champagne region with Wine Passport. Richard, our guide, was very entertaining and taught us a lot about the area, history, and the process in making Champagne. The countryside was beautiful and each of the 3 different houses we visited offered something different which kept the tour fresh and exciting. Who doesn't love Champagne!

Relaxing yet informative tour
It was a great pleasure to have Victor as our guide for a one-day tour to Loire Valley. He has great passion and knowledge in wine. The site and winery that we visited were perfectly arranged. I would highly recommend this tour/Victor to anyone who is interested in exploring Loire with a true expert.

A wonderful day in the Loire
Our tour was with Victor and we got the luck of the draw and no one else booked on our day. The tour opened with a personal pickup complete with croissants and bottles of water. Victor took us to Château Chambord where we explored the castle and gardens at our leisure. Afterward we ate lunch at a fantastic restaurant carved into the face of a hill. The food was fantastically prepared and we got to chat, eat and have several wines of the region. Finally we visited an organic and biodynamic vineyard where we walked among the vines and Victor explained the uniqueness of the terroir. After the gorgeous walk and talk we got to sample several wines from the region and tour the caves with one of vineyard employees. Truly a wonderful day and quite a value.
