Our tour guide, Simone, was very nice and knowledgeable. He was right on time with his pick-up and made our trip really fun. I wouldn’t have done the Champagne day trip any other way. The two small champagne houses that we visited were unique. My wife and I bought a bottle from each one. Totally recommend this company and Simone as a guide.
