Editor Picks: The best Champagne tours from Paris

It is safe to say that Champagne from Champagne (the only true version of the beverage) is the drink most associated with luxury and success. From Formula One drivers dousing everybody in sight after a victory, to toasting a major milestone in life, there is something inescapably alluring about the name. The province sits in North West France, bordering Belgium and well within day trip distance from Paris.

At roughly two hours from the city centre of Paris, many of the tours to the Champagne wine making region of France last around ten hours. This gives plenty of time to squeeze in a couple of wineries and grab some food before heading back to Paris. Many of the tours are more exclusive, so expect to find private tours more than coach-loads of people here.
