Great tour

I wanted to do something different than just see the beaches, shops etc and this tour was the correct choice. Small group tour which was great, i hate tours with 50 people. Saw many amazing sights. Gordon is amazing! St Paul de Vance watching the sunset was another fantastic sight. The guide was super friendly. Would recommend this tour. I only gave 4 stars because of unclear pick up times and tour duration

I enjoyed the trip to Grasse very much to know lots of things about the perfume manufacturing and got gifts as well. The guide had so much positive energy and kind. The road to Gordon was rough, but the view was amazing. And the guide was an excellent driver although we had a crazy driver who tried to pass us inside a small tunnel.

It is a tour that shows very interesting places such as Saint Paul de Vince, the waterfalls, Gourdon, the perfume factory in Grasse. The guide was great.
