What people are saying about Port Grimaud

This was so much fun. I wish I got the tour guides name but he was so helpful and kind and told us what we could do in St.Tropez and Port Grimaud. You take a van to Maxine And the guide buys your tickets and leaves. He says when to meet back up in St Tropez etc.. you go on the ferry for like 15 min to St Tropez and then you can go do whatever you want for around 4 hours. GO ON SATURDAY!!! There is an amazing open market. So many goodies there. Port Grimaud was cool we were there for about 2 hours. Definitely rent the 30€ boats.

very nice excursions to do! we left Nice in a 9-seater shuttle to Ste Maxime, then we took a shuttle boat to St Tropez. We arrived at 10:15 a.m., we left at 2:30 p.m. (free time) then we were able to enjoy the beach and then we left for Port Grimaud (free time). very nice outing. I highly recommend

Jaill was a very kindly guide. He found the best roads to arrive at St-Tropez by car the fastest and by boat, safely. The small town of St.-Trapez is very cool and the Little Venice also a very nice surprise. In total, it was a very nice day !

The guide Baffe was extremely friendly and created a good travel atmosphere with his positive attitude. The combination of travel time and free time was well chosen.
