This Veuve Clicquot tour from Paris is a bit different from the other tours as this tour includes a train ticket from Paris to Reims. This means you will need to make your way to Reims yourself. The guide will wait for you by the Reims Tourist Office at the train station. Don’t let this scare you. Taking the train from Paris to Reims is straightforward and you won’t even need to change trains.
You will take a small tour of the historic centre of Reims to start with. Here you can visit the Notre-Dame de Reims and take some pictures of the picturesque streets. Next you head to the cellars of Veuve Clicquot. The tour at Veuve Clicquot will explain everything about the history of this Champagne house and the production methods. If you are looking for a Veuve Clicquot tour from Paris, then this is probably your best pick.
The tour also includes a local lunch and will later on take you to a small family-owned Champagne producer in the Marne region of Champagne. Here you will get a much more intimate guided tour and learn more about how boutique Champagne houses make their Champagnes.

Let me tell you that a Champagne tour is an amazing experience. You will learn so much about the production of this sparkling wine, and will get to taste amazing Champagnes in the process.

There is a direct train and a return ticket will set you back about 60 euros if you book in advance. There are a lot of different tours that leave from either Reims or Epernay station. It means that you will overall have a lot more choice when it comes to the price range and the kind of tours you can book.

What should I wear to a Champagne tasting tour?
When booking a Champagne tasting tour from Paris to Champagne you probably will want to know what to wear. I would personally advise you to wear something casual chique. Women can wear long trousers, a nice top and some flats while men are good with a pair of Chinos and a (polo)shirt. As for shoes I would recommend wearing flat shoes – preferably something that is comfortable but not too sporty. If you want the complete low-down on what to wear (and what to pack) on a trip to the Champagne region you can have a look at my blog post here.
