Loved This tour it was one of my favourites. Vasille was so nice and very informative. Great job!
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. :-)
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.
My mother and I really enjoyed this tour. It was just us and one other girl. Our guide Zara was wonderful - very sweet and full of interesting information. The Fragonard perfume factory was interesting, and Gourdon was quaint although there was not much to do or see there. I think our favorite part of the tour was the Chateau the Cremat winery, however! It was such a gorgeous place and the staff was so friendly.
My only complaint was that there was some confusion about whether or not to go to Valbonne - she kept asking us what we wanted to do and where we wanted to eat. Having never been there before, we had no idea! I wish the company had pre-arranged lunch at a restaurant with a good reputation so that we weren't wandering around trying to figure out what to do. We ended up grabbing a panini at a tiny shop, which was fine, but not what I'm used to on these tours.
Overall, definitely worth the trip. It was nice to have a day mid-week where we just showed up and everything else was taken care of.
I would give this trip more stars if we hadn't had a tour guide who was doing the trip for the first time. I didn't do any reading about the towns before we went because I assumed we'd have a guide who would tell us something about each one before we got there so we would know what to see. Unfortunately, all he told us was how much time we had to get back. He also gave the impression that he dislikes tourists. It was nice to have a "driver" but it would have been considerably better to have a "guide". The trip itself was interesting and the venues lovely which is why I would give this a higher recommendation perhaps if we'd had a different guide.
