This is what guests have said about Tyson Stelzer’s Champagne Tour…
It is easy to understand why the locals in Champagne love Tyson. His knowledge and passion for the place are evident. At each great House, we were welcomed to the inner sanctum as family.
Tyson’s quiet self-confidence is ever present. His professionalism and humility allow the champagne to be the hero as he deftly tailors our experience, educating us along the way.
Tyson and Jody understood the expectations of our amateur and professional members, enabling them to lead us on our journey into the world of champagne.
From our first meeting in organising this event, I knew that we had found the right people for the task.
Tyson is a leading professional whose passion and professionalism are exemplary. I highly recommend booking a tour to Champagne with Tyson.
His energy and the creative passions found at every great House will uplift you and not leave you wanting. Knowledge, passion, professional… Tyson is a rock star!

I can never come back to the region on my own… Tyson has spoilt us for life with an experience that cannot be achieved on one’s own.

I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we spent a week with Tyson Stelzer, Jody Rolfe and our travelling companions in the Champagne region.
Before this week, I knew I loved champagne, but this week has taken this love to a new level – I appreciate the impact terroir has on the grapes, the different ways grapes can be blended to produce amazingly different tasting champagnes, the passion of everyone involved in producing a bottle of champagne and the pleasure of sharing great champagne with wonderful friends – old and new!
Chef de Caves do not turn out to greet tourists 10 days before harvest yet it happened time and time again. The respect the Champagne Houses have for Tyson was clearly demonstrated on our trip – e.g. to be greeted by the Chef de Cave at Louis Roederer as the most influential wine journalist in the world was something very special!
Tyson was able to provide our group with experiences that no run of the mill tour company would be able to provide.

The tour was faultless; from our “rockstar” bus to our wonderful hosts/guides of the champagne houses. We were made to feel like VIPs and given special treatment.
The lunches at the houses were perfect, exquisitely matched with champagne in beautiful settings.
I love their attention to detail with the table setting, flowers, menus and so forth. It made for a great ambiance.
Those extra special tastings of rare, expensive and delicious champagne are priceless!
The visits by the chef de caves were especially valued and we felt thoroughly spoilt and privileged to have met them.
I have learned so much about champagne, how it’s made and where it comes from but what I really love is the history,
the culture and the food that is part of this special region. I have always liked champagne but red wine is usually my wine of choice.
Now I have a new love in alcohol beverage! Thanks to the tour organisers, Tyson and Jody and to my wonderful tour companions for making this trip so wonderful.

Nothing is too difficult for Tyson and Jody. Perrier-Jouët is my favourite house. They modified the tour program for me to fit in a visit. Awesome!
