Thoroughly enjoyed it; although, I would have liked more time in Cannes. We really only had about 35 minutes there - not enough to time to venture off from our drop off point, directly in front of the theatre. Plus, it was early and nothing was open. The stop at the perfume factory was nice for me, but my husband was not in to it. There wasn’t anything worth buying (in my opinion) - I found the scents too strong and nauseating. But, I now know how “they” make their perfumes, colognes, etc. The rest of the tour was amazing and certainly makes up for the first part of the tour. Overall, I would recommend it as it was good to get away from crowded Nice.

Our tour guide, Alexander was absolutely amazing!

My parents and I had an amazing time, and we have to give full credit to our tour guide, Alexander. He picked us up on time, and drove safely and skillfully. The timing of the tour was perfect. We managed to see/explore all the items listed in the descriptions of the tour, and we did not feel rushed at all. The drive was scenic and the countryside towns were very charming and beautiful. We also made several stops to see the waterfall and a mini lavender field, which were excellent! The best part was all the stories and histories shared by our tour guide in a light and fun manner, making this tour an interesting and educational one. If you want to fully experience and appreciate the Provence countryside, but only have one day to do so, I would highly recommend this tour.

Pierre our guide was knowledgeable but negative...did not like Cane, did not like Monaco, which was not on our tour, but we were taking the ferry the next day. Did not like, and was very angry at Nice drivers. Never after any scheduled stops did he ask any of us how we liked the activity. On to the next thing. Did not favor any but one restaurant but one...the rest was up to us to fend for ourselves. .Did not engage with passengers much.
