Departure Time

9:00 AM
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 handprints 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, or 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 take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing to Loup Gorges.

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.

Wonderful journey!

Grasse old town was awesome, we skipped the perfume factory! Our favorite was eating on the edge of the cliff in that beautiful restaurant in Grouton and strolling through the medieval village of St. Paul de Vence! Beautiful country roads and countryside.

This tour was so great! One of my favorite spots along my entire trip of the Mediterranean! Viator was extremely helpful and flexible when we found out we were having a schedule conflict due to our cruise line’s anchorage the morning of. We were so pleased with the guide and classy van he drove us in. The perfume store was totally up my alley and then we had an even better time exploring the shops and cafes of the old villages such as GOURDON! Such a cool place to be in. I thought our guide gave us plenty of free time to see these places and explore on our own. He also found and parked at perfect photo points for us to get the best shots of our visit to Nice! Love love love! Can’t recommend this tour enough.

This was a small group of four so it was easy to communicate and converse. The weather was perfect and the countryside was spectacular. Our guide, Nadir, was friendly, professional and informative and was easy to adapt to our needs including a couple bonus stops for quick photos. It was a very enjoyable day!

The French Countryside Experience.

We had a wonderful time visiting Cannes, Gourdon, and the Frognard factory. Laura, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, funny, and an excellent driver. Very quickly, it felt like a tour with friends. My only suggestion would be to allow for more time at St. Paul de Vence. It would allow for shopping and a bit more of a cafe break, as well. Wonderful!! Would recommend.

Loved that Rolf was able to pick me up from my residence. Due to the lack of tourism because of COVID there were only 2 people on my tour so it felt like a personal tour. Rolf was extremely knowledgeable about the area and accommodating. I loved how he related the history of the area to his own personal history. It’s a really expansive tour from the coast of the Côte d’Azur to the hilltop villages. My favorite stop was St. Paul de Vance. Loved all the art galleries here. P.S. Rolf is an excellent photographer!

The country side and the villages were breathtaking. The views of the canyon walls were exquisite. It was reassuring that we had an experienced driver so that both of us could enjoy the scenery—as well as explain everything.

Completely worth it

Our driver and guide was Rolph (or I hope that's the name because he was amazing, italian that started giving tours back in the 70s) and he was phenomenal: he was very knowledgeable about the places and history we passed / visited, he included relevant parts of his own personal history in the explanations, while also relating it with the history / customs of the countries of the people in the tour, and he gave the explanations - that were tailored to the people - in multiple languages (in our case, german and english, because we were a small group). All the stops were worth it, and Rolph (hopefully) was able to modify the route to make the trip more enjoyable (due to the weather conditions and the fact the Promenade was closed in the afternoon when we were returning to Nice. Incredibly tour with an excellent guide that is well worth it.
