There is no substitute for travel when it comes to learning about wine, and best way to form your experience is to choose a professional guide. Our day was well planned, smooth transfer, nice food and a lot of new information learned on the way. Make sure you clarify your level of knowledge, expectations and which producers are you interested to visit. Next time we will surely skip the big houses and will only focus on smaller growers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review

Patrice was an absolute delight today. He and his driver we nice and we had an experience that was simply amazing. We went to a big champagne house and a small boutique champagne house. Lunch in an cute authentic cafe and the tours of the church were breathtaking. He is RM from A to Z being the best of the best:)

It was a pleasure spending the day with Patrice. He was very knowledgeable about Champagne and the region. We were introduced to some wonderful Champaigns and the days was flawless. We would highly recommend Patrice for your tours in the Paris area.

We are veteran Napa travelers (I grew up not far away in the Bay Area); and we had a fantastic, unique and special trip to Champagne with Patrice... we covered a ton of ground, all the wineries we could handle, great local lunch and local access... couldn't have asked for a better guide or trip. This was our first Tours By Local experience and our first trip to Paris... definitely won't be the last for either...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ryan for your very nice review. It was my pleasure to spend this day with you in the Champagne region. Sincerely PatriceB

Another great tour with a tours by locals guide, we throughly enjoyed our day. Patrice was very commutative pre, during and post tour. He taylored the tour to fit our personal agenda. Our Champagne regional experience was excellent. The lunch restaurant choice and meal was also excellent not to mention the side trip to a little Scotch distillery which was a real treat. Five stars for Patrice and the Champagne and tour����
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great review. It was my pleasure to be your guide this day in Champagne. Merci
We had an amazing day with Patrice who was knowledgable, personable and accommodating. He did everything to ensure our day was spectacular. We felt very safe in the competent hands of our driver Philippe who was very friendly and guided us expertly around the Champagne region. Our visits to the cathedrals, and champagne tastings were very enjoyable. Patrice's choice of restaurant was superb! His hospitality was second to none. We would highly recommend this tour and most definitely Patrice as a guide.

Our tour of Champagne with Patrice was awesome. He planned the perfect day -- touring a couple of different champagne houses, a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant, and some sightseeing. He was knowledgeable about the area, its history, and the champagne industry. The drive to and from Paris (with our capable driver Pascal) was very comfortable and we enjoyed seeing the coutryside as well as the opportunity to visit. Overall this excursion was a great addition to our vacation in France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carolyn Thank you so much for this very nice review.I had a great time showing you the Champagne region and It was my pleasure to be your guide during this wonderful day. Patrice
