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!

The tour company was super accommodating when the morning booking was cancelled on my birthday they offered me a complimentary Manaco and Monte Carlo tour by night. Matt my guide was highly knowledgeable and professional. He was fun, flexible and really knew how to show everyone a good time. He even surprised me with a birthday cake to make it an exceptionally highly memorable birthday I will never forget!

Everything was great! Guide was informative and friendly. We saw a lot and really enjoyed the day. Greetings to our guide!:)

Parfé was very good, he took us around and told us many interesting things about Nice. Recommended tour :)

Everything was good, with the beautiful countryside of France.
