This was a highlight of our time in Antibes. Phillipe arrived ahead of the appointed time, the car is a delight, and our half day morning tour was perfect. We throughly enjoyed the drive, the perfume and candy factory tours and learning from Phillipe about the area. Highly recommend this tour. Arranging the booking online was easy to manage and being picked up and dropped off at our hotel made it very easy for us.

A great driver who explained everything to us, took us to wonderful places, gave us enough time to take in the surroundings and all this was enhanced by driving in a historic car. We are very glad we chose it and will definitely do it again sometime.

Philippe made our time in France so memorable! He was kind & humorous. He showed us around his vintage ride to the village of Gordoun & more. I’d 100% recommend this tour!

The tour guide Dennis was friendly and informative. He arranged the timing of every stop very well

absolutely outstanding service & the places we visited were out of this world
