Champagne house tours in Reims

Jump to last reply

Hello! I know there are a few threads on this already, but most of them are several years old. I'm planning a day trip to Reims with a friend, and we would like to tour two of the champagne houses. I'm usually fine with internet research and planning, but I'm feeling kind of stumped in regards to this.

We don't want to spend a ton of money--I would say 30 per tour is the most we can afford. The websites for the houses don't always list the prices, so if anyone has been on these tours recently and could share their experience, that would be good. I think I've narrowed it down to these few:

GH Mumm --close to the train station, so that's an option for sure, but I'm not sure if it's really the best. It also seems affordable. Although it's close to the train, it seems to be pretty far from the majority of the houses.

Taittinger-- all really good reviews on this one. From what I can tell on the website, you don't need a reservation? Has this been your experience? I just don't want to end up screwed and not able to visit because I didn't book ahead. It also seems affordable.

Veuve Clicquot-- I can't find a price on their website, but some other forums make me think it might be more pricey than I want.

Pommery-- Also reading really good reviews on this. Seems affordable as well. I do see on the website that I need to request a time, which is fine.

I'm wondering if Taittinger and Pommery are my best bets? They are very close to each other, so I wouldn't have to worry about getting across town to make my appointment (as I might if I choose GH Mumm?).

I really appreciate any insights you have about this plan :)
