Departure Time

9:00 AM
After meeting your guide outside your central Nice hotel for a convenient pickup, travel along the famed coastal road of the French Riviera. Admire the scenery as you make your way to Cannes, known for its famous film festival and sandy beaches.

Walk along Croisette Boulevard, window shopping on your way to the Film Festival Palace. There, see how many celebrity handprints you can find.

Next, head for the city of Grasse, the world capital of the perfume industry. Go on a guided tour of a perfumery to learn the complex art and science behind each scent, or enjoy some free time to explore Grasse on your own.

Continue up into the hills, taking in the increasingly dramatic views of mountains, valleys, and the Mediterranean Sea far below. Arrive at Gourdon, a medieval hilltop village, where you take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing to Loup Gorges.

Pause for a brief photo-op at Tourettes/Loup before making your way to the final stop of the day—Saint Paul de Vence, the second-most visited village in the country. The charming historic lanes are lined with art galleries and pretty boutiques just begging you to browse. Enjoy some free time in Saint Paul de Vence before climbing back into the vehicle for the return trip to Nice.

Great day out

Our day trip was great from start to finish. The day flows nicely, the places you see are amazing with great views, good choices for food and ice cream at the stopping points. And most important of all, our tour guide and driver Pierre made sure that we had an amazing day. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made sure we were happy and comfortable all day and made the day so much better than it already was.

Andrea’s was a super guide and driver. He was so knowledgeable about the history of the region and had specifics for each of our stops. The 8 hours went quickly. We thought the time allotted for each stop worked well. Would certainly do another tour with the company and Andreas

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...

Great locations but guide could be better

We were thrilled with our locations of St. Paul de Vence, Gourdon, Grasse and Cannes. We would have enjoyed more time in St. Paul. Our guide Victor was knowledgeable, friendly and caring. Unfortunately, he was difficult to understand at times, mumbled or didn't speak loud enough to be heard by those in the back of the van. Several of us thought that his driving was overly aggressive at times.

Not worth the money

They call this trip Provance, but they make you spend 1 hr in Cannes, which is a total wast of time. The tour guide was amazing and really went out of her way to accommodate, but the agency needs to plan their time more efficiently for this trip. For instance in Grasse we only went to perfumery and didn’t have time to explore the city at all. In Gourdon it was raining cats and dogs, so we just had lunch and headed straight to the last place on the itinerary where we were only allowed to spend 1 hr, which was not enough. If we didn’t waste time in the morning on Cannes, which is not even part of the Provance, we would’ve had time to see and experience much more of Grasse and Gourdon.

Dear Customer, we really regret that you didn't enjoy this tour which is normally with Monaco our best seller and best rated too. We fully understand that you didn't enjoy spending time in Cannes but most of the travelers are booking this tour because Cannes is a part of it. This is real bad luck that you didn't see the sun shining as it would have changed totally your vision of this tour. We hope that you will have the chance to come back and enjoy this marvelous landscape under the sun. Anyway, thank you for your comments even not so enthusiastic which help us to improve to become always better.
