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.

This tour was wonderful! Sylvia is a fantastic guide! She was very knowledgeable and was flexible with the time allotted in each location. Gourdon was the highlight of the trip - ask Sylvia for shop recommendations, I think she knows this little town well.

Sylvia also commanded the road - some of the twists and turns were challenging and she is a fantastic driver.

As a solo traveler, I highly recommend this trip!

Sylvia was extremely nice and very cautious with the driving, which is great. The sites are beautiful. It would have been nicer though if we could have stayed longer and down tours at the old towns rather than doing a perfume factory tour.

Brilliant trip!!! Our tour guide Sylvia was wonderful. She was very friendly and knowledgable and a great driver! It was such a comfortable vehicle and the perfect size for a tour - only 5 of us, so no waiting around for lots of people. We felt like we saw so much in one day and really want to visit the area again. I would highly recommend you doing this tour as a taster for the beautiful provence region. Thank you!

Top Notch tour and guide - most enjoyable


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This was a fascinating tour. Cannes was a beautiful coastal location with with streets oozing of the rich and famous. The perfumery in Grasse was very informative and smelled of flowery essence that soothed the heart. Gordon, the medieval hilltop village was so peaceful and surreal. The candy factory, Florian was such fun and very tasty. If you have a sweet tooth watch out. Our guide Camilia, as usual was a true delight. Her knowledge of the region was extensive and brought insight to the tour that made the day fun but also a learning experience.
