    We visited the lovely old hill top villages, and included the Fragonard Perfume factory museum experience. It was really enjoyable, and educational. Gourdon is very high, and as I dislike heights I was a bit worried. However, the village car park is safely cocooned, as is the short walk to the tiny village on the mountain peak. The view is sensational, I stayed away from the edge, and was fine. The drive up might be slightly worrisome for those who are afraid of heights, but you could shut your eyes. There were 4 in our trip, so we were collected in a regular saloon car. Our driver was friendly and helpful.

    For people who are shortly in Nice a tour is the best ( and frankly, only possible) way to see these sites. The tour has an exellent organisation and a perfect balance between time spend in the group and private time o explore. The little towns are amazing and the scenery also. The guide was very helpful and polite.

    Great tour

    I wanted to do something different than just see the beaches, shops etc and this tour was the correct choice. Small group tour which was great, i hate tours with 50 people. Saw many amazing sights. Gordon is amazing! St Paul de Vance watching the sunset was another fantastic sight. The guide was super friendly. Would recommend this tour. I only gave 4 stars because of unclear pick up times and tour duration
