How we can help you plan your visit

We offer three options for you to choose from:

A)  If you prefer to explore Champagne on your own and feel confident communicating in French, you'll find some of our favourite people and places in our iPhone app called Champagne Day which you can download for just $12.99 from the Apple Store.

About Your Guide

My private tours are for people who want to get off the beaten track and discover some of the places that most tourists never get to see, get to know some delightful champagne makers and of course taste the wonderful champagnes they make.

my-man-in-champagne-JilesHallingTo reassure you about my credentials, I first came to Champagne in 1996 and since then have spent 8 years with Moët & Chandon / Dom Pérignon when I was in charge of sales in Asia and I have also spent a number of years working with the smaller champagne producers helping them to develop their export sales.

I have been lucky enough to acquire a very detailed knowledge of champagne and I love to share my knowledge and experience with anyone who wants to have fun and learn more about this wonderful region and the fabulous wines they make here.
