A wonderful day out with Zara. We learnt so much about Nice and the surrounding area - Zara is passionate and knowledgeable about the area. Our tour of Fragonard was excellent. Lunch was in the picturesque village of Valbonne and then we headed into mountains to Gourdon for stunning views across the region. Last stop was the winery - again a wonderful tour and tasting some excellent wines.We highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Oliver was fantastic and we saw many more places along the way. Wonderful!
My husband and I had a great time on this trip with Wagner as our guide. He was upbeat, knowledgeable, and a terrific person to spend a day with.
We started the day in a small village market about 45 minutes from Nice. Then we went to Grasse for a tour of the Fragonard Perfumery. This was very interesting. Our guide spoke terrific English and was very knowledgeable about the perfume making process. We especially liked being able to sample different perfumes/colognes for men and women at the end of the tour. We were on our own for lunch in the city of Grasse. We found a crepe stand nearby and had a delicious quick lunch.
Then we went to the small town of Gourdon in a somewhat mountainous area not that far from Grasse. We ended the day at the Chateau de Cremat which is one of only a handful of wineries in the Nice wine region called Appellation Bellet. We had an interesting tour of the winery including an area built by the Romans to store wine. Then our visit concluded with a tasting of several wines. Our winery guide was very knowledgeable about the wines and the region making our tasting all that more enjoyable.
Thomas was an excellent guide. The country side is awesome and we had plenty of time to explore on our own. I highly recommend this tour.
Interesting tour - and great guide Sisilia ! The perfumery was amazing and our time in Gourdon was Great !
Very informative - excellent driver/guide
Our tour guide met us at the port and gave us a wonderful tour of Cannes....the city of the famous film festival. She spoke English with a French accent but was understandable. The perfume factory in Grasse was a great tour in itself. All in all a great tour. Cheaper than than what the cruise line offered. Also, we had an eight year old. Everything with the cruise included a 2 hour stay at the casino in Monaco.
We booked this tour for 3 couples during a cruise and were met as arranged after the ship docked. Our trip to Grasse was wonderful and informative and some of us purchased perfumes and after shave lotions. The Film Festival Palace gave us an idea of what happens during the Cannes film festive and the actors' handprints interesting. Our guide explained the reason for it being held in Cannes. Overall a great tour and our guide was lovely.
Loved This tour it was one of my favourites. Vasille was so nice and very informative. Great job!
Great must-do tour of Cannes’ countryside of Provence . If you can only do 1 tour in Canne, this is the one to take. Guided perfumery tour in Grasse was personalized and sweet. We even had time to stroll around the Museum and the town center. The weather was good and we enjoyed spectacular views from medieval town of Gourdon. Bring your walking shoes for Saint Paul de Vence; it is a unique town. We loved the picturesque lane-ways and visited some of the art galleries, even bought a few paintings from the artist. Take time to taste the ice cream in the center of the town near the fountain. The tour guide is jolly, kind, and well informed taking the time to answer all our questions.Just be aware that the country side roads and narrow and winding so if you get car sick tell your driver and he will take time to drive slowly and stop often to ensure you’re comfortable. We are a couple with an infant and we had memorable trip and great time.
A fantastic experience and if you have a small group it is really worth having your own driver and taking your time. Our driver Robert was charming, warm and friendly and he knew so much about the places we visited. The countryside was just beautiful and the perfume factory was a highlight, as was a walk on the red carpet at Cannes.
A truly wonderful experience...so pleased I booked. Eze was charming, loved the visit to Fragonard Perfume which was fascinating. Then onto to beautiful Monaco, a tour of the cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. A lovely lunch with Sanaa, followed by the Pink Palace and stunning views across the principality. Finally, onto Monaco for a spot of people/luxury car watching whilst sipping coffee outside the casino...all in all sheer bliss! Jonathan was terrific...very knowledgeable and charming. Loved the small group (max 8). Will definitely book future tours with Viatour!

a very nice experience, our tour guild is very nice. during this trip we are able to visit a few nice small touns we were not be able to see by ourselves without car
Great trip to a beautiful area of France.I would not buy perfume again in Grasse as they are overpriced ,and even at Nice Airport the perfumes were cheaper!
Our tour guide was great! He even found an additional tour for us to do in the same amount of time because it was too rainy to spend too much time outside. He was very friendly and knowledgeable.
We found each location on the tour to be facinating. I did a similar tour in 2005 when I was there for the summer, and it was just as enjoyable the second time.
Even though it was rainy, the tour was worth it. Once just cannot seem to plan the weather in the springtime. :-)
I had a relaxing and pleasant time during my day trip to the Provence countryside. We visited the most quaint and beautiful villages of Grasse, Gourdon and St. Paul Vence. We had time to shop, sightsee and eat lunch. I highly recommend this tour.
Awesome trip! I highly recommend it. Our driver stopped and allowed us to take pictures of some of the best views of the French Riviera. The perfume tour in Eze was interesting and fun. Have lunch in Monaco and tour the town. There is something for everyone to see and do. Visit the Park, Museum, Cathedral, Palace, shop, etc. See the Casino in Monte Carlo.

Our private day tour was "AWESOME"! Our driver "Carolin" was so accommodating and personable. She took us to all these little hidden places along the coastline and it made for an extraordinary day. My husband and I enjoyed our coffee and croissant in Antabes, our tour through the perfumery(very educational) and the drive to Monaco was breathtaking. We really enjoyed how our driver gave us time alone on our stops which made for a romantic memorable day. Monaco was beautiful and we had lunch on the street our driver referred "supreme" to say the least. We "RECOMMEND" this tour highly if you really want to get the true essence of the "French Rivera". We would do this again and request for the same tour guide.
Great tour guide!
We were picked up by Manuel who spoke excellent English and was a font of knowledge throughout - an excellent guide. We drove to a perfumne factory and then on through some medeaevil vaillages. Absolutely spectacular locations. We had lunch at Gourdon where we had an excellent meal perched high on a cliff with an amazing view. Manual also took us to see an amazing waterfall. An excellent day which was enhanced by our excellent guide. nnn,fghlkw

This was wonderful! The guide that we had was terrific. Took the time to ask what our interests were and designed the day around us.
Interesting tour - and great guide. Just felt that there was some spots we had more than ample time to visit and others were rushed. Would be good if there is some consultation on what the group wants to do in terms of time allocation particularly when a small group.
We had a great time on this tour! The purfumery was amazing and our time in Gourdon France was breath taking! We had lunch in Gourdon with views that were incredible! If it wasn't a cloudy day, you could have seen about 90 miles in each direction. The only recommendation I would have is to do the wine tasting in Provence. The wine tasting is at a beautiful chateau in Nice, but we thought we'd be going to a winery in the country-side. Other than that, it was a great trip!
Very interesting and varied tour. Knowledgeable, friendly guide, plenty to see and filled the day comfortably.
Great day trip. Eze was very quaint, with the tiny allyways and unique boutique shops. The views were beautiful. The perfumery was worth a visit and loved the fragrances, though they don't last all day. The guide, Victor, was very informative and took us to see Monaco from above, what a sight. Dissapointed we didn't have enough time to see the Palace but saw most on offer. Well organised, Great tour guide and very helpfull Viator staff when booking. Money well spent.
