What You Can Expect

Small-Group Tour: Grasse Perfumery and Provence Wine-Tasting Day Trip from Nice

Small-Group Tour of Valbonne Village

Begin your day-long tour of Provence with pickup from your hotel in central Nice. Climb into a comfortable minivan and travel west toward the town of Grasse, your first stop.

Grasse is often called the perfume capital of France, a moniker that will make sense when you disembark from the vehicle and smell the scented air – lavender, jasmine, mimosa and orange blossom grow in the hills and are used by the town's perfumeries.

Stroll through Grasse with your guide and then take a guided tour of the famous Fragonard Perfumery to hear about the process and history of making perfumes.

Your next stop is the town of Valbonne, less than 30 minutes away. Walk through the town's charming narrow streets and browse shops full of local crafts. Take a midday break for lunch at one of the traditional Provençal cafes in the Old Town of Valbonne (own expense) before getting back into the minivan for the scenic drive along the Loup River to Gourdon.

Gourdon sits high atop a rocky cliff, making it ideal for postcard-worthy views. Your guide will bring you to one of the best places to see the the glorious Cote d'Azur far below.

Upon your return to Nice, stop at one of France's smallest wineries – Château de Crémat – before being dropped off at your hotel. The historic estate produces wonderful wines from its beautiful location, and you can enjoy the scenery while you sip local Bellet wine in a tasting session led by an expert.

Great day...Rainer, our driver/guide was informative about the sights we went to, but we also enjoyed him explaining different aspects of life in France. A great way to see some different spots outside Nice.
