An excellent moment with a top guide who made us discover Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco with our hair in the wind. We were all delighted including the girls (13 years old) and our son (soon to be 7 years old). See you next year

This was a really enjoyable experience because our tutor was informative and our senses were well and truly stimulated. The perfumes we created are sensational and give us a lasting memento of our holiday.

Prompt pick up at our hotel. Guide was a good driver, spoke very good English and gave us lots of information with a sense of humour. The vehicle was very comfortable and air conditioned.

It was great fun, we were guided by a very competent employee who spoke perfect English. Very entertaining, a wonderful event for old and young.

Xavier was great. He taught us a lot about the French Riviera and accommodated all our requests! Highly recommend
