A combination of all that is wonderful about  the region, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, this tour is a smorgasbord of authentic Provence, medieval villages perched precariously on mountain tops and the high-life of the rich and famous along the seafront!

After being picked up at your hotel in Nice, you will start the tour in Grasse, where you’ll discover the world of perfumes at Fragonard, before taking part of the Route Napoleon and then climbing to Gourdon, over 2,770 feet above sea level.

St-Paul-de-Vence is your next port of call - that village so renowned for its art, where so many of the world’s most famous artists have spent their time. Still culturally important today, many up and coming artists flock to this Mecca of the arts.

Your last stop of the day is Cannes… where the rich and famous play. Where the world’s most famous film festival is held. Be a star yourself - the red carpet is the ideal photo opportunity - before having a stroll either along the sandy beach or doing some window-shopping!

At the end, your driver will take you back to your hotel in Nice.

This tour was amazing. Our driver Franck was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw so much and everything was beautiful. Only recommendation I have is to start a little earlier and extend the time in Grasse. You spend almost entire allocated time in the perfume factory and are left with very little time to explore the amazing village of Grasse.

This was a very pleasant day and experience. Essentially, a great way to get away from the coast and get up and in to the Alpes-Maritimes region; Cannes probably is included as a way to secure participation, as it's the only coastal stop. Our provider was Sunny Days Sightseeing, driver Justin - very well rehearsed and professionally friendly. Our group size was 8 guests, a full van, which was a nice size to chat and receive guide attention. 1st stop Cannes - an outlier, as on coast, but interesting for 20 minutes to see where the stars hang. (Note, if doing this tour during festival season, expect a serious time impact on getting in and out). 2nd stop Grasse at Fragonard factory was interesting, and something you don't see in states. Gourdon, Tourettes, St Paul were all seriously lovely village perche towns, each with own specialty (view, violets, cemetery, etc). Note: booking time said 9am start, email confirm with SDS Tours said 8:40am pickup, then actual pickpup just after 8:30am - so be prepared, Dropoff at hotel before 5pm, on a summer weekday.

Justin is a fantastic guide and offer detailed and interesting facts. The whole trip is very enjoyable and well planned. Not much time in Cannes which is good. Better to shed time at the perfume place.

Justin was so knowledgable and friendly. Cannes was definitely a waste of time but St. Paul de Vence was magical as well as Grasse and La Tourette was beautiful. I highly recommend this tour. I went by myself and the other 4 couples were fabulous.

Justin is a blessing to have on any tour. He is experienced, knowledgeable and funny. He gave insights on the not so common facts about french villages. He even helped by taking our pictures. Tour is planned good with the interests a tourist might have. This tour even includes guided tour of the parfumerie in Grasse. I suggest to book this tour if you want to have a fun experience visiting the beautiful countryside. Only thing that could be improved was : Gorge. It was mentioned in the tour plan but we did not visit this.

We had a great day trip with our driver/guide Justin. He explained every villages we were about to see. He gave hints of what to see first and what was important. Between each villages he explained the history of the region and stopped at the most scenic point of view. I recommend this tour!

Well first off the small towns were amazing and luckiliy not crowded at all. We were there early June so that might of had something to do with the smaller crowds.. but i really think its because of the fact that a lot of the cruisers don't have the time to book this since you dont get done until at around 5:30. We are independent travelers so please dont take my word for it. If you have the time we really recommend this day trip. We found the french people to be very nice and friendly and very helpful no matter where we were, so don't go there thinking they are not. Its rumors. We were in a small group of 5 and the driver gave us plenty of time to explore and shop and take loads of pictures. The only reason for the 4 stars was that the driver had a couple small opinions on some issues that i found unnecessary. But i wouldn't let that deter me from going again

This was a little more "touristy" then I expected. You visit a candy factory and perfume factory, along with 3 hilltop villages that are fairly similar, and a quick stop in Cannes. The drive along the back roads was interesting, however our guide was a bit opinionated and off-putting.

I am sorry to say, but the tour guide ruined the day. As it is a small group tour, it was only us and 1 other couple in the group. This other couple were late from the last meeting point, and the guy lost control. He was aggressive, he was shouting, and made everybody very uncomfortable. I have complained to the tour office, no response. So there are so many other organised tour, choose a different one.
