A Recent Review of this tour

Ramon was our guide for a very enjoyable day trip through many of the key landmarks and beautiful countryside that comprises the Champagne Region of France. He has a very good grasp of history and the pivotal role played by the Church and the monarchy from the time of Clovis to the post-WWII rebuilding that brought this part of France into the 21st Century. We visited the tomb of Dom Perignon, the majestic Norte Dame cathedral in Reims, several Champagne houses, and wound our way through many villages.
