It exceeded our expectations! Our tour was private for the 5 of us.

Our tour guide, Laura, made the whole experience wonderful! She was knowledgeable, charming and witty. I would seek her out for other tours. The winery was tucked in the hills above Nice affording unbelievable views of the countryside and Mediterranean Sea. Our Host, son of the owner, was also quite knowledgeable sharing not only details about each wine but a history of the vineyards. We all found it quite fascinating.

I highly recommend this tour!

Excellent guide, beautiful sights, great wine tasting! Loved it! My only recommendation would be that the tour increases the time spent in St Paul de Vence by half an hour or so. Also, the road up the winery is very winding. It’s a good idea to take a some car sick medication if one has a tendency to feel nauseous on trips.

Absolutely amazing tour. Our guide was super friendly and made sure we had a wonderful experience. The wine tasting was our favorite, but the stops at Grasse and 2 small villages along the way were a cherry on top! It was a day full of lovely experiences and we would highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic day of wineries with Peter. Prompt pick up at the designated spot. Comfortable transportation, scenic roads, and well chosen vineyards. All three wineries were unique in their own way. The tastings were wonderful, the knowledge of our guide was excellent.

Melody was a great guide. Very friendly and accommodating. Told us a lot of interesting things and the tasting was excellent. Showed us exactly what we expected.
