Absolutely amazing tour. Our guide was super friendly and made sure we had a wonderful experience. The wine tasting was our favorite, but the stops at Grasse and 2 small villages along the way were a cherry on top! It was a day full of lovely experiences and we would highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful excursion, thank you. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it so interesting. We also found her extremely caring and sensitive to our needs. Thank you for a lovely day. Pam and Clare.

The tour guide was great, very personable. The places we went were amazing. If I do it again I will do the whole day version though. Regardless, it was a great time.

Ingrid was very helpful, very attentive to our requests, and very patient in making sure we saw everything there was to see. We couldn’t have had a better guide.
