Full description
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel or your home address in Nice at 8:00 AM, at which point you will depart in an air-conditioned car to the hills of your countryside destination. You will cross the "gorge of the wolf", complete with its 40-meter-high waterfall, before stopping at Castellane. Whilst traveling along the Verdon (named for its astonishing turquoise green color), you will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the 700-meter-deep canyon. Afterwards, you will move on to the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, nestled under a rocky cliff and surrounded by mountains from all sides. Known for its rich history in ceramic craftsmanship, you will have free time here to explore Moustiers at your leisure. You can discover the earthenware in the many stores, and buy souvenirs before lunch in one of the terrace cafes. Afterwards, photograph the world famous lavender platters, or enjoy the lake of St. Croix, an artificial treasure of clear and pure water which is one of the most beautiful lakes of Provence. After enjoying your trip, you will return to your vehicle at which point you will be driven back to your point of origin in Nice.

    Everything went the way it was promised. The group was small. We made a lot of stops on the way in the most amaizing places. Also the ride itself, through the mountains offered beautiful views! Our Tourguide Leo was a very educated man who enriched us with a lot of interesting facts about the regin and the places we visited. Personally I would have loved to have a bit more time at the individual stops but all in all it was a great experience and I would definitely do it again.

    Great driving path with beautiful sites. Allowed ample time in fields and pictures of gorge and lake. However the first stop was lackluster and crowded with the market. Would have liked those 40 minutes more for lunch and exploring. Lavender fields are where locals go so we were basically the only ones there. Tour guide was great! But I would have enjoyed a little more history or interesting facts of the areas.

    Fantástico. Los guías espectaculares. Aitor y Parfait súper atentos, amables, agradables y preocupados en todo momento en dar la mejor experiencia posible a todos los que participábamos en el tour. Un 10 como personas y guías. Respecto al recorrido también fantástico. En un solo día ves pueblos preciosos, campos de lavanda y te puedes refrescar en el lago. Un detalle especial fue que nos preguntaran si nos gustaba el chocolate y ante la respuesta afirmativa rotunda de todos, nos acercaran a una fábrica de chocolates y dulces. Si vuelvo a la costa azul o la Provenza tengo muy claro que volveré a contratar algún tour con ellos. Muy profesionales. Absolutamente recomendable.
