What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip: Provence Countryside by Minivan from Nice

Explore the pretty village of St Paul de Vence on your day tour

Discover the postcard-perfect gems of Provençe with a small group of family and friends. Your full-day tour begins with morning pickup at your Nice hotel in an 8-passenger minivan. 

Learn about the area’s history from your private guide as you drive long scenic coastal roads to Cannes. In this glamorous seaside city, drive past luxury hotels and sandy beaches along the Boulevard de la Croisette and channel your inner star power with a visit to the Film Festival Palace. 

Next, make your way inland to the town of Grasse, considered the international capital of perfume. Take a guided perfumery tour and enjoy 45 minutes of leisure time to explore on your own.

Stop for photos in the scenic town of Tourrettes-sur-Loup and drive through the magnificent valley of Loup Gorges. Stop for about an hour at the medieval hilltop village of Gourdon, which boasts spectacular views of the Alps, Provençe’s rolling hills, and the Mediterranean. Taste floral-flavored candy at the Florian confectionary and enjoy lunch at a local café (own expense). 

For your last stop, wander through the picturesque streets and browse the many art galleries of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Discover for yourself why the village inspired a generation of Impressionist painters and today is one of the most visited towns in France.

Relax on the scenic return drive to Nice, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

Thomas was an excellent guide. The country side is awesome and we had plenty of time to explore on our own. I highly recommend this tour.

A fantastic experience and if you have a small group it is really worth having your own driver and taking your time. Our driver Robert was charming, warm and friendly and he knew so much about the places we visited. The countryside was just beautiful and the perfume factory was a highlight, as was a walk on the red carpet at Cannes.
