What You Can Expect

Provence Countryside Small Group Day Trip

See the Cannes Film Festival Palace in Cannes

After meeting your guide outside your central Nice hotel for a convenient pickup, travel along the famed coastal road of the French Riviera. Admire the scenery as you make your way to Cannes, known for its famous film festival and sandy beaches.

Walk along Croisette Boulevard, window shopping on your way to the Film Festival Palace. There, see how many celebrity hand prints you can find.

Next, head for the city of Grasse, the world capital of the perfume industry. Go on a guided tour of a perfumery to learn the complex art and science behind each scent, and enjoy some free time to explore Grasse on your own.

Continue up into the hills, taking in the increasingly dramatic views of mountains, valleys and the Mediterranean Sea far below. Arrive at Gourdon, a Medieval hilltop village, where you’ll take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing to Loup Gorges. There, you’ll visit the famous Florian confectionery and taste some of the traditional flower-scented candy.

Pause for a brief photo-op at Tourettes/Loup before making your way to the final stop of the day — Saint Paul de Vence, the second-most visited village in the country. The charming historic lanes are lined with art galleries and pretty boutiques just begging you to browse. Enjoy some free time in Saint Paul de Vence before climbing back into the vehicle for the return trip to Nice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

This is a lovely day trip--even when, as on our trip, there is fog. Our guide, Victor, was excellent. He provided great information as we traveled. We started in Cannes and saw the sights and view. Our main interest was Provence and the trip provided a great introduction to this area. We had an interesting visit to the Fragonard perfume factory in Grasse before having a great lunch in Gourdon, a charming old village with great views. The drive was fascinating even with the fog. And we especially enjoyed the lovely town of St-Paul-de-Vence. There was enough time at each stop to enjoy each place we visited.

Great tour to get a feel for French country side. visited St. Paul where Chagall spent his last 20 years. Tour guide - Viktor, he provided interesting insights. A quick visit to the perfume factory. Tour date Feb 2, only my wife and I were on the bus! Definitely recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

We're so glad that we took this tour. I had no idea we'd get to see glorious mountain views, a waterfall, and the Mediterranean Sea from high vistas in charming villages. Cannes was underwhelming since it was early in the day and not much was going on. For some reason, we didn't stop at Loup Gorges and the Florian confectionary, but we loved visiting the Fragonard perfumery, Gourdon, and Saint Paul de Vence so much that it made up for missing it. Our guide Caroline was friendly, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. I highly recommend this tour!

Excellent tour with an excellent guide, Victor. Stunning views from top of Gourdon and the beautiful town of Saint Paul De Vence. The food at the little restaurant at Gourdon truly scrumptious.

We had a wonderful time on this trip. Our tour guide, Victor, was extremely knowledgable and very friendly. It was the perfect amount of time in each city and we never felt rushed. This is a great tour for people who want to see various parts of the French Riviera but aren't sure how to do it. We learned a lot and had a great time- would highly recommend this tour.
