Découvrez la charmante campagne de la Côte d'Azur lors d'une excursion d'une journée en petit groupe au départ de Nice. Explorez Mougins, Grasse, Gourdon et Tourettes-sur-Loup. Profitez d'un arrêt photo aux cascades du Saut du Loup et goûtez différentes variétés de tapenades et d'olives françaises dans un moulin traditionnel.
This tour provides a nice escape from the bustle of Nice and the French Riviera if you're looking for some peace and quiet and an introduction to medieval villages. We enjoyed seeing the valleys and mountains away from the coast, and we had some great views from Gordon. The olive oil mill was an interesting stop, and while the oil tasting without any accompanying food was a little strange, we found some delicious olives to take back home with us.
So why only three stars? Our driver was just that-- a driver rather than a real guide. She dropped us off at each location and then went off to do her own thing. We were given very little information about each location, and some of the information we were given was suspect in its accuracy. We also found that the villages were a little too much alike. Without knowledge of their unique histories, we were kind of bored by the last two. You can only wander so many narrow cobblestone streets before they all start to look alike. A wonderful tour guide can make each town come alive, but that was certainly not the case here.
Overall, we didn't feel like this tour was a particularly good use of our time or money. It was fine, but we were hoping for more than just fine for one of our precious last days in France.
Guide was friendly, knlowedgable, organized, and fun. She also recommended good restaurants in Nice. Old french villlages were beautiful. The villages were Touristy with lots of gift shops, but you cannot beat the views from top of Gourdon or the classic medieval architecture in Tourrettes, etc.
This was a great day trip that provided quite diversity in the range of villages visited, and had some very interesting additional stops along the way. One of the few tours that gets you to the fabulous village of Gourdon, perched on top of a hill with views to the Mediterranean. Overall the tour was well-paced except for the length of time at Gourdon. We were clearly expected to take a long time over a sit-down lunch with wine, but no-one on this tour was interested in this. We all just grabbed a sandwich and ended sitting around for quite a while waiting to move on. At least we could look at the view. Apart from this, I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
This trip is a must for those of you like us who do not drive whilst on holiday. Our guide Rym was lovely, young fresh and well informed.
The selection of villages was lovely with just enough time to catch a glimpse of each destination. Our visit to the olive mill was fascinating but for me it was the wonderful visit to the waterfalls and the tour through the gorge on the way home.
This is a busy day out and if I could do it again I would take a packed lunch as our time in Gourdon was used up queuing for lunch at the only takeaway in this little town and then finding a quiet spot to relax and eat our sandwich. If it had rained I do not know what would have happened as there is very little indoor restaurant space.
Yes I would recommend this trip.
