Do not book any tours involving Paris City Vision. I do not have the space to explain in detail. I paid extra for a hotel pickup. No one came they went to hotel with same name different address. 10 mins after arranged time I tried to phone and kept phoning for 45 mins. Hotel manager phoned eventually spoke to person said I gave incorrect address. Viator confirmed I did give correct address. It was 1pm before this sorted. I wasted a day. Stuff happens but not to have emergency procedures in place is rediculous. You are warned DO NOT BOOK WITH PARIS CITY VISION
Great visits to the two houses we toured. The tasting was great but the tour through the plant was better. Reims was a nice town and the cathedral was spectacular. The buses were nice and allowed for relaxation on the trip. Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience, history lesson, champagne testing, someone else doing the driving
Tour was a great concept, just the guide and bus driver were not so great. Bus driver was borderline rude and I felt more rushed by the guide to keep on track than to enjoy the tour. I feel like the priority with this tour company in general is more on time constraints then on helping people to enjoy the tour and experience. I would not recommend this tour company nor use them again.
Gude was OK, not spectacular. Stopped for the two Champaign tastings. The first one was average at best. Tour guide was hard to hear, (no audio system used) and the group was over 20 people. Second tour was much easier to hear, but lacked substance. Best part of the tour was the Cathedral which we did on our own.
I would not recommend this tour to anyone. First, I paid extra for hotel pick up and drop off. The driver never showed up to pick us. When I called the office, they said that the had sent a taxi and the taxi said I wasn't there, which wasn't true. I ended up ordering an uber to get us to the tour. The tour guide proceeded to tell everyone on the tour that it was starting late, because we couldn't make it to the meeting place on time. She repeatedly mentioned throughout the tour that we were late, which was very embarrassing. After the tour, I waited for over an hour to speak to a manager. I was told that the manager didn't want to talk to me, because it wasn't his problem. He refused to speak to me or to address my concerns. They did provide a taxi to take us back to our hotel. The taxi driver took us to the middle of Paris, and told us that we had to pay him more money to take us back to our hotel. After the taxi driver tried to extort us, we got out of the taxi and ended up having to order an uber to get back our hotel. During the tour, we spent most of the day on the bus. We stopped at two wineries and had one glass of champagne at each. The tour guide was not friendly, or willing to answer questions. When I asked if Mumm was the same company as Mumm of Napa, the tour guide freaked out on me. She lectured me for 5 minutes, and in the end said it was the same company. This tour was a waste of money. You would be better off buying a bottle of champagne in Paris and drinking it on your own.
This excursion is simply not worth it's pricey price tag. The first stop of the excursion was enjoyable, mostly because the tour guide seemed knowledgeable. The second excursion began with us watching a video then took us on a 5-minute walk to look at some of the machinery used in champagne-making over the years, but really gave us no new information that wasn't provided in the first tour. Neither venue had hosts that took the time to describe the champagne as far as what flavors were on the palate nor was there any discussion about food pairings. As such, calling this a
You get to go to two wineries to taste Champagne you get to pick between the Brut and Semi-Dec at both places. At both places you watch video about how Champagne is made, view the cellars, and have a tasting. I was disappointed to not see any of the vineyards there are not located near the cellars. I felt Mumm was more informative and personal with their tour. Cartier's tour was odd, you would randomly stop at different spots in the cellar that didn't really seem to flow into the tour. Bring a jacket if you get cold, the cellars are cold all year round. The time in Remis was nice.
We were collected at 7:10 a.m. at our hotel, as paid for, boarded the bus at Pyramids, and had a good drive to Reims. The young gentleman at Mum was personable, but a bit difficult to understand. He needed to work on his English. The tour was excellent. We loved seeing the Cathedral and had a lovely lunch in Reims before going to the smaller winery. The film was fabulous and the tour was good. The floor was bumpy and thirty steps at a time was challenging. The tasting was perhaps less professional, but more friendly, as one would expect at a smaller winery. The gift shop was more
