Leave the coast and enjoy a beautiful drive through the Gorges du Loup with its 40 meter high waterfall. Stop in Castellane, gateway to the Gorges of the Verdon, nestled at the foot of its famous rock. Drive along the Verdon river, named after its startling turquoise-green color, up to the canyon which is considered to be Europe’s most beautiful. Enjoy the spectacular and breathtaking views overlooking the ravine which is up to 700 meters deep. Stop in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, one of the most beautiful medieval villages in France which is known for its rich history in ceramic craftsmanship. Take time to enjoy a lovely meal and a stroll.

What people are saying about Fayence

The tour with the guide named Laurent (he was a very good guide and had a lot of insider tips for us) is highly recommended. We were picked up in front of our hotel in Nice in an air-conditioned van and then we went straight to the mountains. Several stops at the Grand Canyon of Europe allowed us to take great photos and enjoy the spectacular scenery. Unfortunately we had to see empty lavender fields, but instead we stopped for a swim at a beautiful lake (so pack your bathing suit). All in all really recommendable!

Laurent picked us up at the hotel on time. Laurent is a super great guide. He was very friendly, competent and polite. He told us great stories about the individual stations. Not only the coast of Provance but also the "inner" Provance offers great travel destinations. We even saw a whole group of sea head eagles at the Grand Canyon.

Joe was a very passionate and friendly tour guide! He took us to many beautiful places and gave us lots of detailed background details. Also, it was very kind of him to work overtime for more than 1.5hrs, so we could spend more time in each stop. All in all, it was a be try unforgettable trip!

Very great tour of the Verdon Gorge and the adjacent small villages. Unfortunately, the lavender had already been harvested by now (end of July), so this part was omitted, but the guide made up for that with his good humour, his jokes and interesting facts!

the trip was superb, very very nice experience, the guide was very nice, smiling, friendly, and had a very good historical knowledge of the places
