Vad du kommer att göra

Veronica will meet guests at the East train station around 10am in Paris and help them purchase their tickets out to Champagne. We will ride the one hour train together and then dive into the charm of the region's most interesting village, 'Epernay', the former home to Dom Pérignon. We will stroll through the village's farmer's market and pass by the famous sites before heading to the Moet & Chandon or Mercier house for a one-hour tasting. After the tasting the group will enjoy a fresh picnic together overlooking a vineyard before heading back to Paris. The tour serves to provide an overview of the history of Champagne and the region, show guests areas they would not find on their own and of course enjoy the local specialty! Guests are welcome to stay longer in Epernay or take the train to Reims if they prefer to explore the region further on their own.
Other things to note
We will meet 25 min before the train departs in order to buy our tickets, get coffees and find comfortable seats on the train.

We had such a wonderful experience with Veronica. We were lucky enough to have a private tour and enjoyed a personalized tour of Epernay. She is super knowledgeable and we learned a ton of the history in addition to tasting fabulous champagne. I don’t normally go on tours and I am so happy I invested in this experience.

Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed with this experience and it was a tour I was so looking forward to :( In my opinion it was not worth the price we paid. I had initially chosen it as it was the least expensive Champagne Airbnb experience I found because all the other tours seemed pricey compared to this one, however NOTHING was included in the price and that was probably why (you have to pay for your own train tickets, food/drinks for the picnic, and the champagne tasting is NOT INCLUDED either) and the day ended up costing me and my friend over $400! Overall, the entire day was not well organized and simply not worth the price in my opinion...and I've done a lot of Airbnb experience tours. Veronica our host is very sweet and charismatic, but the organization was completely off...the farmers market was shut down when we got to Epernay so we ended up at a generic supermarket to get our food, the picnic location seemed WAYYY better in pictures, and tour felt SOO rushed that we didn't even have enough time for a champagne tasting which was supposed to be part of the experience....so the majority of our group had to stay behind to have enough time for the tasting while our host left with 2 others from our group and went back to Paris. I didn't want to have to stay later in Epernay as the tour was supposed to be over around 4pm but the whole point of the champagne tour was to taste champagne so I didn't want to miss out. Veronica told us we could take a later train back, so the majority of our group stayed behind to have enough time to do a tasting, BUT when we got to the station there were NO trains back to Paris and at the moment there was nothing we could do...no other trains, no buses, nothing! We tried contacting Veronica but she had already left and we were hours from Paris. We were a group of about 10, and all of us had to take multiple taxis back to the city which cost over 400 euros per cab! It was a total mess and horrible end to what was honestly a mediocre day. Overall I was super disappointed and the experience was not worth what I spent and I ended up spending triple than what I intended because there were no more trains...I explained the issue to our host Veronica & Airbnb, even opened up a case but neither would cover the additional costs we ended up having to pay to get home (which was a result of poor planning/time management) and they told us it was our fault and "must have not read the screen at the train station correctly." They even refused to provide a refund for the cost of the experience as it itself was so disappointing and honesty makes me feel cheated... I only believe in leaving fair reviews, but based on this experience here is my honest take--book a tour that includes your travel expenses, champagne tasting, & food as this tour will probably cost you the same amount (if not more!) However, if you do decide to book this tour, make sure to get on the same train as Veronica home...even if it means missing the champagne tasting because if there isn't a train, it will cost your hundreds to get back to Paris!

My friend and I booked this tour during our vacation in Paris. We had a BLAST in Epernay with Veronica and the whole group! Communication was great prior tour with Veronica. She picked a wonderful vineyard with an amazing view; the picnic in the vineyard is one of our favorite memories from our vacation. Veronica had great knowledge about the history, region, and process behind champagne and we learned a lot. 10/10 would recommend to anyone! We made lots of new friends from our group, Veronica included! If you want to go to Reims after, I would recommend saying the night there. We only had about 1 1/2 hours once we got there until the last train to Paris, but seemed like it would be fun for a night!

This experience is great to see Epernay in a day and get a quick overview of Champagne making and houses, plus a visit to one followed by a lovely picnic. I bought train tickets in the stations although to go back to Paris you’ve the option to stay behind longer in Epernay and get one of a few returning train times to visit more champagne makers, or head to Reims. Veronica is a fantastic host, pleasant and friendly.

This was an awesome trip from start to finish! Veronica is wonderful and so friendly! She really takes care of the group and set up the perfect lunch overlooking a vineyard. Beautiful way to spend the day!
