We had plenty of free time in St. Tropez so we wandered the streets, had lunch, and shopped the french market. Then we were taken to Port Grimaud and explored "Little Venice" for awhile. Our guide/driver did an excellent job of driving us between cities and was very punctual

The driver was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of the history of the area on the drive from Nice. We did hit traffic in Saint Tropez so be prepared to be driving for several hours on either side of the trip.

excellent the arrangements of transportation and driver done her job. But the city itself not good for me to spend time to explore, particularly all the public wc out of use and needed to pay €0.50

Great tour guide. Lovely places during the tour with wine tasting in the end

Great trip. Informative. Relaxing. Beautiful scenery
