The trip description reads as though this is a boat tour, it is not. However it is a good tour. We took a small ferry to Saint Tropez, which was lively with the ending of a sailing regatta. My husband and I wanted to go to the beaches, which for some reason our driver was against, telling us it was much to far to walk and taxi's weren't to be trusted. he said we would have five minutes on the beach before we left. We were both very unhappy with this, as in the tour description it reads 3 hours on St. Tropez to explore the beaches, cafes and town. Becasue of the regatta it was difficult to explore and get into a cafe, needless to say 3 hours was much to long. When we were leaving he drove us to the beaches as promised which was maybe 3.5 miles, which we would have been happy to walk had we been told, which was disappointing. The tour back to Nice along the beautiful coast was wonderful. Stopping in several town to explore castles and villages. That was the best part of the tour.
The St Tropez tour that we originally booked was cancelled the day before by the local partner due to transportation problem. So we booked this tour last minute and we were so glad we did. We had Theodor as our tour guide and we could not been any happier. He made it so amazingly fun and entertaining. We got to see St Tropez and Port Grimaud as we desired to do. We had enough time to go around St. Tropez and enjoy it. I definitely recommend this tour to those who have not been to St. Tropez and have little time to explore the South of France. Loved it!
The town of Port Grimaud reminded me of Venice with its canals, so I wish I could have spent more time here. St. Tropez was a lux experience with much free time. The great guide also took us to some beaches as a bonus on the way back to Nice, so glad to experience some other places. The tour company does not understand English well, and I wrote them 3 times that I was not staying in a hotel. So the guide went to the wrong place for the pick up, which made the tour start late.
Our guide was Aryton and can’t say enough good things about him. He was very accommodating and showed us many secret locations for Instagram worthy pic places. We took this trip in December when most shops are closed but he was able to adjust the schedule accordingly so we didn’t feel disappointed at all with we didn’t see much actions. I absolutely loved my trip. Would definitely take it with him when I return in May/June for the lavender season.
Our driver and guide (Theodor) did an outstanding job, explained a number of things, stopped the car a few times to allow us to take pictures and made the driving memorable
