A great way to see some of the highlights of Provence in the Nice region. St. Paul de Vence was an especially nice place to visit.

Wonderful tour, met all of my expectations and more! Caroline was a great guide and provided us with just the right level of information, not too much and not too little. I especially liked it when she would tell us a few seconds before we passed a site of interest, to look out for it. It gave us time to turn our heads and look. I highly recommend taking a small tour van like this one. You get to know everyone, which was nice because I was touring alone.

Beautiful tour with an amazing tour guide in Victor. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The lunch place in Gourdon was beautiful. Victor was well prepared and even had enough umbrellas for what turned into a partly rainy day in St. Paul. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a different experience. It was a nice change of pace from all the beaches we explored.

Fantastic tour! The guide, Joe, was extremely lovely and full of knowledge. He was 45minutes late due to a traffic accident but had the decency to call our hotel to inform us as well as extend the tour to ensure we got the full time. Beautiful scenery. Loved every moment. Definitely recommend this tour!
