What You Can Expect

Cannes Shore Excursion: Small-Group Cannes, Antibes and St-Paul-de-Vence Tour

Explore the pretty town of St-Paul-de-Vence on your tour from Cannes

Spend a memorable day at port discovering the highlights of Cannes and some of the most charming villages of the French Riviera. Meet your local guide at the cruise terminal in Cannes, and set off in a luxury 8-person minivan. 

Begin with a drive down the shoreline Boulevard de la Croisette to see a slice of daily life in Cannes and admire its gorgeous beaches and hotels. Walk in the footsteps of the world’s biggest film stars with a visit to the Festival Palace, where the Cannes International Film Festival is held each year.

Head out of town along spectacular coastal roads toward your next stop of Antibes. Wander around the quaint cobblestone streets of this hilltop village while your guide shares its history, and ogle jaw-dropping yachts harbored at Billionaire’s Quay. 

Drive slightly inland through the Provençal countryside to visit the quaint medieval town of St-Paul-de-Vence, one of the area’s oldest settlements. Explore the charming lanes, cafés and galleries and see why the village is known as an inspiration for many of France’s Impressionist painters and contemporary artists. 

Relax on the short return drive to Cannes, where your 4-hour tour concludes back at the cruise terminal.

Brilliant tour, not to be missed!! St Paul de Vence in particular was enchanting but the whole experience was 5 star, due to Zara being such an outstanding guide! The rest of the guides may be just as excellent, but if you ask for her, you will be sure to have a great time and make the most of your time on shore - she is flexible, accommodating, very knowledgeable about the area, courteous and professional - everything you would want in a guide!

Great tour and excellent guide


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

This was the perfect tour for us. We got to see the most interesting cities in Provence. We were picked up at the port and returned. Our driver was exceptional and he took us on the beautiful back roads to enjoy the fall colors.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Nice small group 1/2 day tour. Just enough time to see St Paul-deVence, Antibes, stopped at a market and purchased delicious fruits. The young lady Gina was very sweet and informative. A great driver. Went at a good speed to sight-see.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2016

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and this was a worthwhile tour. We thought that the time we spent exploring the farmer's market in Antibes was good. Our time exploring St. Paul de Vence on our own was the best part of the tour! St. Paul de Vence was a great spot for checking out local art, crafts and food. Inside the fort walls there are next to no cars and it was very safe to walk around.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

Although the convenience of being picked up at port was great, overall this was a lackluster experience. Our guide took us to a small market first, which wasn't particularly special. We walked around by ourselves for thirty minutes, but felt done with it after ten. Going to St-Paul-de-Vence was definitely the best part of the tour. It had great views and was a charming area. Keep in mind that your guide will not walk with you while you explore the market and St-Paul-de-Vence, those sections are completely on your own. I wouldn't consider this so much a tour, but rather transportation to different areas with information given to you by your guide as you drive along.

The worst part of the experience was our guide, I don't remember her name. When we got back into the van to return to the port, we briefly smelled the odor of marijuana in the van. During this forty minute drive, she decided to play some of her music over the radio--reggae music with lyrics that frequently made references to marijuana--we didn't find this appropriate. She was completely silent the entire drive back 40 minutes of a half day trip without any commentary from a guide, and raced through turns while pretending that her steering wheel was a drum set. I'm not making this stuff up. We literally had to hold onto the sides of the van to keep from sliding all over the place as she raced through turns.

The price is enticing, but ultimately between our guide, and stops, I wish we had done something else.
