Departure Time

9:00 AM
After meeting your guide outside your central Nice hotel for a convenient pickup, travel along the famed coastal road of the French Riviera. Admire the scenery as you make your way to Cannes, known for its famous film festival and sandy beaches.

Walk along Croisette Boulevard, window shopping on your way to the Film Festival Palace. There, see how many celebrity handprints you can find.

Next, head for the city of Grasse, the world capital of the perfume industry. Go on a guided tour of a perfumery to learn the complex art and science behind each scent, or enjoy some free time to explore Grasse on your own.

Continue up into the hills, taking in the increasingly dramatic views of mountains, valleys, and the Mediterranean Sea far below. Arrive at Gourdon, a medieval hilltop village, where you take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing to Loup Gorges.

Pause for a brief photo-op at Tourettes/Loup before making your way to the final stop of the day—Saint Paul de Vence, the second-most visited village in the country. The charming historic lanes are lined with art galleries and pretty boutiques just begging you to browse. Enjoy some free time in Saint Paul de Vence before climbing back into the vehicle for the return trip to Nice.

Wonderful village tours
, Sep 2021
We were able to visit three small and very picturesque towns that we would not have otherwise been able to see. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable.
Perfect day trip
, Sep 2021
Loved that Rolf was able to pick me up from my residence. Due to the lack of tourism because of COVID there were only 2 people on my tour so it felt like a personal tour. Rolf was extremely knowledgeable about the area and accommodating. I loved how he related the history of the area to his own personal history. It’s a really expansive tour from the coast of the Côte d’Azur to the hilltop villages. My favorite stop was St. Paul de Vance. Loved all the art galleries here. P.S. Rolf is an excellent photographer!

A relaxing and enjoyable day in the countryside.
, Aug 2021
The country side and the villages were breathtaking. The views of the canyon walls were exquisite. It was reassuring that we had an experienced driver so that both of us could enjoy the scenery—as well as explain everything.
Beautiful trip to the countryside of France.

Excellent tour of the countryside with tour azure. Tony was excellent and informative about the region. Took us the beautiful spots for photography and some very interesting villages in the countryside. This was a relaxing tour and would higlhly recommend it.
Completely worth it
, Jul 2021
Our driver and guide was Rolph (or I hope that's the name because he was amazing, italian that started giving tours back in the 70s) and he was phenomenal: he was very knowledgeable about the places and history we passed / visited, he included relevant parts of his own personal history in the explanations, while also relating it with the history / customs of the countries of the people in the tour, and he gave the explanations - that were tailored to the people - in multiple languages (in our case, german and english, because we were a small group). All the stops were worth it, and Rolph (hopefully) was able to modify the route to make the trip more enjoyable (due to the weather conditions and the fact the Promenade was closed in the afternoon when we were returning to Nice. Incredibly tour with an excellent guide that is well worth it.

Our day trip was great from start to finish. The day flows nicely, the places you see are amazing with great views, good choices for food and ice cream at the stopping points. And most important of all, our tour guide and driver Pierre made sure that we had an amazing day. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made sure we were happy and comfortable all day and made the day so much better than it already was.

Andrea’s was a super guide and driver. He was so knowledgeable about the history of the region and had specifics for each of our stops. The 8 hours went quickly. We thought the time allotted for each stop worked well. Would certainly do another tour with the company and Andreas

Driver was excellent... Points to view were outstanding... Cannes was disappointing, nothing to get impressed about, the red carpet was all hyped up but plain and boring...
