What people are saying about French Riviera

We’ve been traveling through Europe for the past two months, using a combination of private guides and ship excursions for segments that were on cruise ships. Joe, our guide for a day of discovery out of Nice, France, was by far the best guide we’ve had our entire trip! We was an excellent driver, and very knowledgeable about history, the arts, music, food, wine, shopping, pop culture, etc. He was very prompt picking us up at our hotel and he knew all the side routes to get us to our chosen destinations quickly so as to increase the time we had on our own. He even booked a restaurant for lunch in Saint Paul-de-Vence that was the one we wanted to book anyway. His tips and planning on how to make the best use of our time were priceless. If you are going to book day trips from Nice, you can’t do better than Joe.

Our driver/guide Buffy was excellent. He speaks very good German and is an excellent driver. The time for the excursions is almost too short for a 1/2 day, because the towns of Antibes and Saint Paul de Vence would be nice if you could admire and enjoy them longer. 45 minutes each in these towns are too short, especially since you have to march through alone and for the first time have no local knowledge. Watching Cannes just for the red carpet isn't worth it either. The 5 hours of driving and short stops is very stressful. We would have enjoyed the tour more if we had had the information beforehand that everything was scheduled in this way.

This is such a beautiful experience. The aroma are so pure and creating your own perfume felt very personal and it is such a good way to remember your time in Eze. The employees are so caring and passionate,you can tell they love their job. Would recommend 100%

A very personable guide and driver. You could understand the English of our guide very well and told a lot. You don't have too much time in the cities, but it's enough for a first impression. was fun

Excellent experience with wonderful opportunity to see the key sites. Friendly approachable definitely. Highly recommended
