Nice Welcome Tour: Private Tour with a Local

1. Nice Welcome Tour: Private Tour with a Local

Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about their city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighborhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable in navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once we receive your booking, your guide will get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour including the meeting place and time, language and your contact information, and also ask you some questions to get to know you better. Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2 hours).  During the walking tour you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The guides are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travelers and share what they love about their city.  They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city.  Through conversations with your guide, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Nice, learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

Private Tour to the Fabulous Red Gorges and Entrevaux

2. Private Tour to the Fabulous Red Gorges and Entrevaux

Explore the beautiful red mountains and gorges that lie behind the coast. The Cians and Daluis gorges are particularly special due to the red color of the rocks - they are like a little Colorado up in the French mountains. Your private driver will first drive you from Nice in the direction of Entrevaux. As you explore this medieval village, you will be transported back in time. After some time spent strolling around, move on to see the Daluis gorge. Admire its breathtaking views and take beautiful pictures of this very special area. Stop for lunch in Peone, an authentic mountain village. Afterwards, drive back through the fabulous gorges of Cians on your return to Nice.

Countryside tour in Provence from Nice

3. Countryside tour in Provence from Nice

Drive to Cannes, see the film festival palace and feel like a star walking on the famous Croisette boulevard with its prestigious hotels and its sandy beaches. Follow the coast road to Antibes see the old town, the provencal market and the Pablo Picasso Museum. You will admire the billionnaire's pier which welcome the largest and fanciest yachts of the world. And then go to Saint Paul de Vence a wonderful medieval village where many of the great painters and artists have stayed. You will appreciate the charm of its stone architecture. Then photo stop in Tourettes-sur-Loup the city of violets, suspended on the flanks of the mountain. Numerous artisans have set up shops in the town, adding their production to the local harvest of olives, carnations, roses and above all, violets which furnish the town's annual fete with one of the most prized floral displays on the Riviera. Gourdon is a nice village built on the top of a rocky spur some 800 metres high, this veritable eagle's nest of a feudal village. The main street of the village leads to a tiny square that is a veritable viewing platform for the Riviera, offering an exceptional panorama looking out towards Nice and beyond to the Mont de l'Esterel. And you'll finish by Grasse which is a welcoming picturesque resort town on an outstanding site. The main industry of the town today, as it has been for centuries, is perfumemaking of which is the world capital.
