Customer reviews
Holly Carrell

I was skeptical that this would be worth the $, but in the end, it definitely was. The champagne selection was amazing, the accommodations were very comfortable and superior to what I've previously experienced and the sommelier/guide was knowledgable and entertaining. Strongly recommend!


We have a great trip, the weather was great and the tastings were excellent - friendly host and some great guests.

Andrea Marinas

Several people had recommended a cruise down the Seine and I agree - definitely worth it while in Paris!! Both my husband and I loved this tour. You are on the boat with a bunch of other people, but the champagne people get a special roped off area up front. Our champagne sommelier was extremely knowledgable and we both learned quite a bit about champagne, as well as tasting some quality champagne. Romantic and fantastic views of the city - you will learn a lot, but can sit back and relax / enjoy the ride too. Do it!! :)

I really enjoyed the cruise and the the server was very knowledgeable regarding the various champagnes.

Mary Mac Ginty

We've been to Paris on a number of occasions but this was our first trip on the Seine Cruise with Champagne Tasting. It was marvellous. Our guide JP was excellent,even though he stated that this was his first trip!! The champagne was lovely,mmmmm. I have recommended it to friends and family. My sister is hoping to travel next year and will book in for same.
