As a solo female traveler - I wanted a private and high quality tour - this tour fit the bill. The Citroen was beautiful and got a lot of attention - it was fun to get waves and smiles from everyone we passed. Phillipe was very knowledgeable of the area and had a great itinerary. He communicated several times before the tour to make sure the time/itinerary was ok. I got the feeling he would be flexible with the itinerary/time which was good. Phillipe had arranged a tour for me at Fragronard Maisson in English. The tour was wonderful and I learnt a lot about perfume and got to see the production line in action. After the tour we took the mountain roads to Gourdon which was really pretty.In Gourdon - Phillipe gave me a tour of the medieval town and told me about the area and history. I really enjoyed the uniqueness of the tour and I’m so glad I did it. Phillipe was very knowledgeable and friendly. I felt right at home with him and enjoyed riding around in style. This is a must do tour!
We saw everything we hoped to see without excessive walking. Late start..car problem. 8 people in minivan. Had tour of perfume factory, abt 40 mins. Town of Eze... 45 mins.. walk up hill-steps to church and couple streets. If can't do steps, can wait in cafes. Monaco...2 hours. Then 40 mins in Monte Carlo... can go inside casino lobby. Monaco Palace not open in winter, but saw changing of guard. Time for walking old town Monaco streets which are same area as palace, lunch, and stop in church where Grace Kelly buried. Pretty basic tour, but covered everything. This was advertised as 7-hour tour. Not sure what gets cut on shorter tours.
Phillippe knew the area and geography extremely well. He explained everything to us and allowed us the decision on where we would go. He was extremely polite, sensitive in that he knows when to chat and when to stay quiet but above all, an extremely competent and safe driver. The car is a beautiful piece of engineering and is also a piece of art. It is comfortable and just a joy to sit and ride in.
The guide (sorry for forgetting his name) was very friendly and helpful, and was able to answer all of our questions. The places we visited were remarkable, and the only complaint about the trip is its length, which could be shortened a bit if we wouldn’t visit one of the places.
Great tour seeing some amazing places all with really good and informative information from the guide who was also very friendly and helpful. Just the right amount of time to do some of your own things and have lunch. Would definitely recommend this company and tour to anyone.
