Full description

Discover medieval castles and charming towns as you tour the countryside around Nice. Visit Grasse and learn about the history of French perfume, explore the cobblestone streets of Saint Paul de Vence, and stop at the Gorges du Loup waterfall.

After pick up, you travel to the old town of Grasse, the historical center of French perfumery since the end of the 18th century. You will have the opportunity to visit Fragonard perfumery.

Continue on to Gourdon, one of the most beautiful perch villages of France, and admire a panoramic view of the Riviera from the Alps over the coast.

You will visit the castle, built in the 9th century, and its sumptuous garden, dissected by Lenotre. Enjoy a stop to visit the waterfall 40metres high in the Gorges du Loup. The next stop is the medieval village Tourette Sur Loup, settled on a rocky buttress, overhanging precipices. Also know as Cite des Violettes, this village became a meeting place for musicians, painters, writers, and poets in the middle of the 1920s.

Today more than thirty workshops and galleries make the village a place of high standing for art and craft on the Riviera. Your last destination will be Saint Paul de Vence, an extraordinary treasure of Provence that has over time become the garden of many painters.

    Our tour guide, Nic was incredible! His knowledge of history and local culture made us fall in love with each stop before we even arrived! The destinations were stunning. I love that we were gracefully kept to a schedule to ensure seeing everything we possibly could while still allowing time to experience each unique stop.

    Pick up worked great. Since we live in a pedestrian zone, it was initially difficult to find the driver. The company immediately got in touch via email and phone. 5 hours is of course only a taster trip, so to get a taste of it. But the tour fulfills all requirements. Well chosen places and vantage points with entertainment in between by the guide. I was traveling with my daughters (16 and 5), there was something for everyone.

    LOVED our tour with Nordin. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. Seeing parts of Nice beyond the regular tourist attractions of the main part of town was a highlight of our trip. Wonderful, breathtaking vistas and incredibly quaint historic villages. We also really enjoyed our stop at the Fragonard perfumerie - it was so interesting learning about the process and we loved shopping for their beautiful products. Thank you Nordin for a wonderful experience, we appreciate your friendliness and excellent driving we felt very safe despite the narrow roads and high elevations.
