Head to the quaint town of Grasse, known as the world’s perfume capital, on a full-day tour that begins with a pick-up at your accommodation in Nice, Monaco, or Cannes.

Great tour, with some mind-blowing scenery. Great guide as well.

A great value-for-money tour. The towns and areas visited were memorable, especially the views from Gourdon. Nicola's, our guide, was very friendly and efficient and contributed a lot to the pleasure of the day. The perfume factory was interesting, as was old Grasse. The wine tasting at the end was a pleasant way to finish. I can recommend this tour.

Gourdon was amazing - highlight of the tour

An enjoyable day. Marion, our guide, was most obliging and knowledgeable. The trip to Gourdon was wonderful - fascinating terrain, wonderful setting, delightful village. Two hours in Valbonne was a little too long. Unfortunately, we had visited the factory at Eze the day before so visiting Grasse was something of an anti-climax. The countryside we passed through was beautiful and ever-changing.

A great day out.

We had a lot of good fortune on this day out. To begin with, all of the others booked on the trip dropped out, so we had a tour by Sebastian all to ourselves. We were also blessed by brilliant weather. It was a sunny day with good visibility, which made the landscapes spectacular and the view from Gourdon absolutely brilliant. Sebastian was good at keeping the pace of the tour moving along so that we arrived in the right place at the right time. For me, the highlight was the lunch in Valbonne. For my wife, she rather enjoyed the tour of Fragonard in Grasse. We both found the wine tasting interesting and a good way to end a very enjoyable day. We would both thoroughly recommend the tour.
