    Trip was very well run, there were a few delays in picking up passengers and our driver was 30 minutes late, but we were given apologies straight away. Glass factory: Very talented skills from the workers making the glass but personally this didn't interest me greatly. Olive oil factory: Very beautiful building, the gift shop was wonderful (we only had hand luggage sadly, otherwise we'd have taken lot's home!) We got to try a number of different flavoured olive oils (although it would have been nicer to have with a little bread rather than just spoons of oil!) Local town for lunch: Very beautiful, quiet town in the mountains. I'd suggest that guests should be given the option to reserve a table for lunch as it's a tiny place and most options were fully booked. Wine tasting: Fantastic wine expert who only spoke French (but it made it more authentic!) beautiful vineyards, and his brother paints the artwork for the bottles. Beautiful wine, all organic! Very good tour guide Dennis!

    Ann, my wife and I went on this tour on a Sunday: our experience was very good: interesting and informative. Our driver was Denis, although new to this particular tour, made a very good day. We visited a few villages around Nice and finished with a visit to a vineyard, who make their own wine for a select number of customers: I will say we enjoyed the experience and thanks Denis and crew.
