Provence Countryside Small-Group Day Trip from Cannes

Provence Countryside Small Group Day Trip

You'll drive through the picture-postcard countryside of Provence to the second most visited village in France, Saint Paul de Vence. With its cobblestone lanes and trendy art galleries, its easy to see why the town is so popular. There's a stop of around an hour to explore this former haunt of the Impressionist painters.

Your day trip continues for photo stops at Tourrettes/Loup before winding up in the charming Loup Gorges. The views of the Alps, valleys and spectacular coastline from the perched medieval village of Gourdon are amazing. You will spend an hour here, with time for lunch (not included) and a tasting of the traditional floral-scented candy at the Florian confectionery, a Riviera specialty.

Next stop is a guided perfumery tour in Grasse, world capital of the perfume industry. You'll have approximately 45 minutes of free time here, so you could also visit the old town.

Your last stop is a 45-minute visit to Cannes, to see La Croisette boulevard, the Film Festival Palace, designer shops and sandy beaches.

French countryside is amazing, the little villages are like a fairy tale. Just wished we could have stayed in st Paul de Vence for longer to be able to go to all the art galleries as well. But nevertheless loved our tour and special thanks to Pierre, our bus driver and guide. He was both knowledgeable and fun making our day really enjoyable.

very good tour guide and the tour is a must if you are visiting the south of france. however, you will visit a perfumes factory that called Fragonard and i highly recommend not to buy from them as i didn't really like the quality of their perfumes and they don't last for a long time. after the factory visit you will have 1 hour to visit the village behind the factory and you will find many small shops where you can buy better perfumes for cheaper price

Rolf, our driver and tour guide was amazing. He was so well-informed and so personable, he made the day long trip so enjoyable.

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.

My French is limited but I do know the word "Magnifique" and that describes perfectly my 8-9 hours experience in Provence. Victor, the guide, so professional, so knowlegeable with perfect manners kept us very comfortable during the trip. Merci beaucoup. Olivia
