I spent really nice day. We did not have much time for all the beauty, but I get familiar with the area and definitely come again. I can recommend to those who don’t have much time and also vehicle. It is the best way to get the most of the mountain area of French Riviera in one day.

Some lovely locations with some stunning scenery in this trip. Nora was our tour guide and she was very helpful with information about the places we visited. Just a warning though about the mountain roads that are part of this trip. They are quite twisty and are probably not the best if you are prone to motion sickness. Unfortunately I got a little bit sick on the trip but thankfully I was able to recover to continue the journey.

It was an incredibly beautiful day with Nora, the driver. She was very considerate and friendly. All of the stops we stopped at - the lake, the gorge, the village and several short photo stops - were absolutely worth seeing. At the lake you can go swimming or rent a pedal boat, then the gorge can be explored even better. Thank you, Nora!
