What people are saying about Nice

Great communication for pickup, very prompt and on time. Guide was super helpful and friendly (Francis). Went out of his way to ensure we had a good time, always checking in to make sure we were having a good time or enjoying our meal or to take a picture. The roads on the trip are very windy to be wary of car sickness. The views were stunning, highly recommended

You should know that the lavender fields are blooming June- mid July. We visited grand canyons and several nice old villages, had a wine degustation on the way back to Nice in April. This trip made our trip to Nice unforgettable. It is worth visiting as these small ancient villages and nature are more beautiful than Monaco or other worldwide known cities.

Absolutely fantastic experience, for sure one of the best places I've ever seen! We had a phenomenal tour guide to take us through the journey.

We really enjoyed our tour. The mountains and villages were beautiful.

An excellent trip. The tour guide was talkative and outgoing
