This was a highlight of our time in Antibes. Phillipe arrived ahead of the appointed time, the car is a delight, and our half day morning tour was perfect. We throughly enjoyed the drive, the perfume and candy factory tours and learning from Phillipe about the area. Highly recommend this tour. Arranging the booking online was easy to manage and being picked up and dropped off at our hotel made it very easy for us.

Jacques was amazing, and we had such a lovely time. He took us to gorgeous wineries and shared the history while we sampled delicious wine, he selected a great lunch spot, showed us around a picturesque town, and provided just the right amounts of history, local information, and, of course, wine. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

A great driver who explained everything to us, took us to wonderful places, gave us enough time to take in the surroundings and all this was enhanced by driving in a historic car. We are very glad we chose it and will definitely do it again sometime.

Mary, our instructor, was clearly very experienced. Everything was clean and orderly and I wish we could've stayed longer to learn more. The take away was fantastic. I can't wait to go back.

Our driver was personable, knowledgeable and flexible. We had a great time.
