Highlights
  • Discover the gorges of the Verdon, known to be the great canyons of Europe
  • Photograph the Magnifique Lavender Fields
  • Visit Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a medieval village known for its rich history in ceramic handicrafts
Full description
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel or your home address in Nice at 8:00AM, at which point you will depart in an air-conditioned car to the hills of your countryside destination. You will cross the "gorge of the wolf", complete with its 40-meter-high waterfall, before stopping at Castellane.

Whilst traveling along the Verdon (named for its astonishing turquoise green color), you will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the 700-meter-deep canyon. Afterwards, you will move on to the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, nestled under a rocky cliff and surrounded by mountains from all sides. Known for its rich history in ceramic craftsmanship, you will have free time here to explore Moustiers at your leisure. You can discover the earthenware in the many stores, and buy souvenirs before lunch in one of the terrace cafes.

Afterwards, photograph the world famous lavender platters, or enjoy the lake of St. Croix, an artificial treasure of clear and pure water which is one of the most beautiful lakes of Provence. After enjoying your trip, you will return to your vehicle at which point you will be driven back to your point of origin in Nice.

A very, very nice tour with great nature. The guide was very punctual, polite and very friendly. Our language barrier (we only speak German) Vitali only English and French was a little dampener at first but in the end this day could not have been better. We would like to thank GetyourGuide for the very friendly contact before and after our trip.

This is a long day, but worth it to see spectacular scenery.. driver turned up promptly at hotel. Good driving skills and good local knowledge. Friendly, we recommend this trip completely. Worth knowing that the lavender fields are only worth going to when the lavender is in bloom in the summer

I'm so glad that my mother and I booked this tour on our trip to Nice last month. We really wanted to see the Gorges of the Verdon and we got to drive through some beautiful places on the way there and back, such as Catellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. We spent a lot of time in the van because it takes a while to get there from Nice but it was worth it to see the Gorges of the Verdon! They're breathtaking! Also, Layla was a great driver and tour guide and she made the trip very enjoyable!
