Beautiful landscapes of French riviera. A comprehensive tour. Not to be missed the Jardin exotique of Eze, at the top of the village, there is an entrance ticket of 6 euros, but the view you get from there, is worth it. If you love art, in Antibes there is Picasso museum, a beautiful collection in a castle. For art lovers a must see.

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.

Great value for the price! Our group was so fun. Only thing I was was that there was fresh water or a snack that came with it as the sun and swimming is tiring. Other than that the staff was incrediebly kind and patient. Would recommend to all!! Thanks Team!

Absolutely reccomended! Daniel, the guide guy was very kind and prepared. The van was of 8, very nice trip. Excellent experience!

It was an excellent experience! You should definitely have this tour.
