Complimentary pick up and drop off in hotels centrally located in Nice city (postcodes : 06000 or 06100 or 06200 or 06300).
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.

What can I say but wow wow wow! Our guide Maria was friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating all day and really made our experience even more memorable. The tour itself was brilliant with plenty of time to explore each of these amazing towns. Maria’s recommendation for lunch was absolutely perfect. Do yourself a favour and book this tour today.

First the picture was from a tour we took off RCCL in 2018, Symphony of the Seas before COVID took away 2 years of travel. We had booked a Viking Rhone cruise for 2020 and it was cancelled 3 times. So it started with Lav season (like this one) but changed to May and then later April. April in my view, only having been there twice was a great time to go. Post Viking we were in Nice for 5 nights at the Hyatt. From there we were on this tour Azur Tours? I believe with Michaela? I hope that is right as our guide. Sorry for all this fore talk but to make everyone understand it was a much anticipated trip that kept being cancelled. Rather than do the "viking" expensive post tour, we opted to do the Hyatt (best concierge dept I ever met in 25 years of being a travel consultant, these 3 Geoffrey etc were so caring and professional) but back to this tour. Not only did she do all the "expected" parts of the tour we paid for, when she realized Mike is an artist and I am a poet, she told us about a church in Grasse with Rubens on the walls, and when it appeared they were closed, she asked the nun in French if we could enter. WOW, the rest of the group members were buying souvineers, and we were given a special bonus just by luck. AND they kept the group waiting, we did not even with that. I would have like to have seen EZE and we got to Villafranche sur mer on our own, and the Matisse and the Chagall (buses and trains are easy) but again, if we could have afforded her for a private tour, she drove well, she new the language and had heart about suggestions, just a fantastic human being. Talked a bit about her mom, we really felt immersed in a day out with a great tour company and a guide who felt more like a friend than stranger. Can't recommend Via tour or this tour highly enough. I have never had a bad experience with them, the cost is reasonable and their guides should be weighed out in gold nuggets. If i could give 6 stars I would. And a tear I won't be back for a few years.

Good trip, however the guide was not aware of the congestion in Cannes due the Festival. He should have been. Therefore we were not able to make this stop. When one of the clients asked if we could make a short stop in Antibes instead we were told, no. Really disliked the perfumery, actually more of a sales stop. And the tour person there was gruff and unpleasant, Not sure of local laws, but the driver using his phone many times was scary. On the positive side, our driver was kind and caring. The first two stops at St Paul de Vance and Gourdon were lovely. So were the photo stops,

What a great day exploring beautiful little villages in the Provence countryside above Nice. Our tour guide was knowledgeable & accommodating.So glad we didn't have to drive on the crazy hillside roads & we could enjoy lovely small towns. The Rose Fest in Grasse was a sweet bonus.

Excellent cuz of Andreas

Really memorable Tour made even greater because of Andreas. The most excellent Tour Guide ever. Locations were amazing. His knowledge of the history or the areas were great. Fragonard needs to provide gifts and discounts on tours too much hard selling. Go to other perfumeries. Did not enjoy that part of your. Will take tour again because of Andreas but skip Fragonard since had two tours that included them. Check and use others.

Dear Monika_G, The team at Tour Azur are pleased that you enjoyed your time with Andreas. The perfume factory Fragonard is included on the tours as perfume is such a big part of the culture and industry of the South of France. Sincerely, Tour Azur

We got really lucky with our tour because my husband and I were the only ones! Our tour guide Nadiar was absolutely amazing. Gave us insight tips, helped us with all our questions and spoke great English. Having a private tour with my husband and not having to think about where to go, where to eat and it being stress free was priceless! No matter what it was an amazing time.

We're very pleased here at Tour Azur to learn you had such an enjoyable tour, and that you enjoyed your time with Nadir so much. We'll pass on your kind words to him! The whole idea of these tours is, of course, to take the stress away from sightseeing for you, and we are glad you appreciated being shown around in such a relaxed way so much!

The cheesecake at lunch!!! Hahaha Every aspect of our trip was SUPER!! Andreas our tour guide and driver was professional, articulate and stress free driver. My wife on the Red Carpet in Cannes, her smile smelling all the natural fragrances at Fragonard, St Paul de Vence medieval town was spectacular. The trip is well worth it in every way and we visited and saw many things we would never have thought to see or visit on our own. Truly a MEMORABLE TRIP! Thank You once again Andreas!!!

Grasse old town was awesome, we skipped the perfume factory! Our favorite was eating on the edge of the cliff in that beautiful restaurant in Grouton and strolling through the medieval village of St. Paul de Vence! Beautiful country roads and countryside.

This tour was so great! One of my favorite spots along my entire trip of the Mediterranean! Viator was extremely helpful and flexible when we found out we were having a schedule conflict due to our cruise line’s anchorage the morning of. We were so pleased with the guide and classy van he drove us in. The perfume store was totally up my alley and then we had an even better time exploring the shops and cafes of the old villages such as GOURDON! Such a cool place to be in. I thought our guide gave us plenty of free time to see these places and explore on our own. He also found and parked at perfect photo points for us to get the best shots of our visit to Nice! Love love love! Can’t recommend this tour enough.

This was a small group of four so it was easy to communicate and converse. The weather was perfect and the countryside was spectacular. Our guide, Nadir, was friendly, professional and informative and was easy to adapt to our needs including a couple bonus stops for quick photos. It was a very enjoyable day!

The French Countryside Experience.

We had a wonderful time visiting Cannes, Gourdon, and the Frognard factory. Laura, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, funny, and an excellent driver. Very quickly, it felt like a tour with friends. My only suggestion would be to allow for more time at St. Paul de Vence. It would allow for shopping and a bit more of a cafe break, as well. Wonderful!! Would recommend.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Thanks for your review of your tour with Tour Azur and your driver Laura - the team will be sure to pass your compliments on to her. St. Paul de Vence is a place where one could easily spend days looking around, and unfortunately, there just aren't enough hours in a single day tour to see everything that St. Paul de Vence has to offer... especially when the tour also comprises the other mountain-top villages!

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!

kelly_G, They say the best guides are those who share their history with the area, and who have a passion to relate their history alonside that of the places that you, as a tourist, visit. The team at Tour Azur are delighted that you felt such a connection with the region through Rolf's commentary! We will of course pass your compliments on to Rolf. Here's an idea for you: Next time you're here, be sure to show the photos Rolf took to the art galleries of St. Paul de Vence. Who knows, they could make you a fortune!
