    Almost half of the time we spent in the car! There was huge traffic on the way back to Nice, was disaster! It was less than 4 hours in St. Tropez which is too short for such a long driving back and forth.. The lady who was driving was awful driver, pushing the brakes too strong, so you think you will throw up any moment!

  • Saint-Laurent-du-Var: 4-Hour Fishing Trip

    4. Saint-Laurent-du-Var: 4-Hour Fishing Trip

    After meeting at the port of Saint-Laurent-du-Var, head off on your guide’s boat into the waters of the Mediterranean to start your fishing adventure. Perfect for amateurs and pros alike, this experience is catered to your skill level. Make use of provided cutting-edge fishing equipment to make sure you catch the biggest fish in the waters. As you skim over the stunning waters of the French Côte d’Azur, gaze back over the seaside cliffs and greenery from a new perspective. Using a variety of techniques, including trolling with with lures and live bait, spinning with lures, and jigging, you’ll have the best chance to catch a variety of fish, including Amberjack, Barracuda, Bonita, Tuna, Bluefish, Dentex, and Grouper. You’ll have the opportunity to take home your catch, within the limits of respectful fishing.

    We enjoyed our time fishing. Our guide was a great fisherman but he could have been a better guide. We didn't really learn how to do things ourselves. He usually cast and then handed us the line when there was a fish on. We would have preferred more instruction on how to do it ourselves. The communication was a bit difficult given the language barrier. Given the price point of this option compared to others that we looked at we think it was a good deal and we got just about what we paid for. Not sure we would book again just because we wanted a slightly different experience. If you're novice fishers looking for a low price point I would recommend this experience.

Great excursion with our guide Nathan who was very accommodating for everyone! We were able to spend 2 hours at Lake Sainte Croix for a swim! The travelers with us were also lovely! Quite a lot of cars and winding paths you shouldn't have the car sickness but the view is worth the detour

Guillermo was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful thought the whole tour. We stop to swim in open waters and enjoy the warm waters. It’s a must do if you visit Nice!!!
