Great excursion with our guide Nathan who was very accommodating for everyone! We were able to spend 2 hours at Lake Sainte Croix for a swim! The travelers with us were also lovely! Quite a lot of cars and winding paths you shouldn't have the car sickness but the view is worth the detour

great experience to live if you stay in Nice! Nathan our guide was welcoming and smiling the perfect duo to have a great day. the mask is respected, so don't worry. as for the day long drive but the views are worth it it was just magical. we were even able to swim in the lake at the end of the day so bring your swimsuits just in case. our guide Nathan speaks several languages which facilitates communication with everyone, he explained to us super well every piece of the journey that was made and even took pictures of us! anticipate the trip because a lot of turns, even if the view is super beautiful if you are a little fragile a coke or other for the trip will not be too much :)
