Excursions offering expertise, fun and drinking launch to the UK mediaThe Champagne Tour Co. has called in travel and lifestyle agency Turtle to focus on the UK’s national and consumer press, having successfully operated in the US for many years.
The independent company offers bespoke planned private visits to artisan grower-producers and grand prestige cellars, and exclusive access to cellars not open to the general public.
The Champagne Tour Co. seeks to draw more British clientele to the Champagne region of France and its customised tours, which highlight its unrivalled experience and expertise of the area.
With a business background in luxury, art, and travel, owner Larry Davis has been offering concierge services in the Champagne region, and Paris for more than 12 years and personally plans all private tours, as well as trips to celebrate special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, proposals and honeymoons.
All guides are English-speaking, friendly, and have exceptional experience and knowledge of the vineyards, cellars and local area. Tours appeal to a wide range of clientele, from first-time visitors to oenophiles. Full-day private tours from Paris start from £768 for up to three people or £530 from Champagne. Shared group tours of up to eight people departing from Paris are available from £172.
Davis, founder of The Champagne Tour Co. states: “After a decade of developing a fantastic network of welcoming Champagne producers I feel we are ready to share our knowledge and expertise to a larger market and am delighted to appoint Turtle as our PR agency.”
“We are hugely excited to be working with The Champagne Tour Company – a firm that prides itself on its unrivalled knowledge of the Champagne region and finest producers. We look forward to showcasing its tours to the UK press in 2016,” says Leila Stocker, Director of Turtle PR.
