Driver was excellent... Points to view were outstanding... Cannes was disappointing, nothing to get impressed about, the red carpet was all hyped up but plain and boring...

The tour was really good. Didn't know what to expect, but Cannes and the perfumery were interesting. The real treat was Gourdon and st paul vance, those were pretty destinations. Thanks for a great tour!

Awesome experience! Our guide Viktor, was great and informative! He spoke multiple languages with our diverse group. The point of interests were well worth it and a good way to get out of the city.

A very enjoyable day, Martina was fantastic, we were the only 2 on this particular day so it was like a private excursion

It was an excellent trip. Our guide and driver Victor was passionate about the history of the place and briefed us about the places we would go and their history. Scenic tour, on red carpet at Cannes, fagonard factory at grasse and artistic collection of Saint Paul De Vence. Won't have been possible without a guided tour.

Our driver for the day was Victor and he was wonderful. I was in a smaller group and it was such a fun group! Top notch service from Victor and he was so knowledgeable about everything we were seeing. He kept us right on time-- showed us all the great sites. I wish we could have had more time outside exploring Grasse, even then it was a wonderful tour! I highly recommend this tour, I went solo and everyone makes you feel so welcome!

This trip is fantastic!! Camille, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We started out in Grasse and toured the Fragonard factory then drove up the foothills of the French Alps stopping at the very quaint medieval village of Gourdon for lunch. After walking through the village we headed to Saint-Paul de Vence, another medieval village which was filled with lots of narrow, hilly streets and beautiful artisan shops. After we were dropped off at our hotel we ate at the restaurant recommended by Camille, La Maison de Marie on Place de Messena. The food was excellent! I would highly recommend this trip!

We were lucky enough to have Alexander as our driver and tour guide. Alex was a lifelong resident of Nice and the local area and knew all about it. He was only interested in making our tour experience incredible and catered to our every need. The tour was incredible and all the stops were well worth it. Highly recommend the tour and, if you can, ask for Alex!!

This is a lovely day trip--even when, as on our trip, there is fog. Our guide, Victor, was excellent. He provided great information as we traveled. We started in Cannes and saw the sights and view. Our main interest was Provence and the trip provided a great introduction to this area. We had an interesting visit to the Fragonard perfume factory in Grasse before having a great lunch in Gourdon, a charming old village with great views. The drive was fascinating even with the fog. And we especially enjoyed the lovely town of St-Paul-de-Vence. There was enough time at each stop to enjoy each place we visited.

Great tour to get a feel for French country side. visited St. Paul where Chagall spent his last 20 years. Tour guide - Viktor, he provided interesting insights. A quick visit to the perfume factory. Tour date Feb 2, only my wife and I were on the bus! Definitely recommend.

This tour was amazing!
• Submitted 10 Feb 2018
We're so glad that we took this tour. I had no idea we'd get to see glorious mountain views, a waterfall, and the Mediterranean Sea from high vistas in charming villages. Cannes was underwhelming since it was early in the day and not much was going on. For some reason, we didn't stop at Loup Gorges and the Florian confectionary, but we loved visiting the Fragonard perfumery, Gourdon, and Saint Paul de Vence so much that it made up for missing it. Our guide Caroline was friendly, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. I highly recommend this tour!
