Private Half-Day Tour of the French Riviera in a Vintage Car

2. Private Half-Day Tour of the French Riviera in a Vintage Car

Spend half a day in the French Riviera on a tour completely based on your wishes on board the mythic French car: the Citroën Traction Avant. This car was the world's first front-wheel-drive steel monocoque production car and successfully pioneered front-wheel-drive on the European mass car market. It was built from 1934 to 1957. Among the numerous sites on the Riviera, select the ones you most desire to visit. You can stop in the famous cities and villages, or travel quietly along the magnificent Estérel coast road from Cannes to Fréjus. As this is a private tour for your single group, you are free to manage the time you want to spend at each site. If you love a particular site and decide to stay a bit more than initially planned instead visiting another one, no problem. Additionally, if you are not quite certain what you want to see, allow your local driver to help you decide what best fits the interests of your group. Some examples of tours (you can see on the picture-map): · Cannes (La Croisette) – Mougins (Old Village with artists) – Grasse (perfume factory) – Gourdon (Medieval village) · Cannes (La Croisette) – Estérel cost road until Fréjus (Harbor) · Grasse (center of old city and perfume factory) - Gourdon (Medieval village) – Gorges du Loup road – Tourrettes sur Loup (sweet factory) To communicate your desired itinerary, please provide a detailed description at the time of booking by leaving a note in the comments field during the checkout process.

What people are saying about Grasse

Our English speaking driver met us at the train station in Antibes. He drove us through a number of towns in the French Riviera and was very professional and informative. His 1953 Citroen was in great condition and and comfortable. The three adults in the the back seat were snug but still enjoyed the experience. Our driver was skilled and very cautious. We have been to France a number of times but this was the first time we toured up into the hills surrounding the Riviera. The scenery was fantastic and little towns like Gourdon were a wonderful surprise. We toured a historic candy factory that appealed to all. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Philippe driving. We all felt that next time we would enjoy a full day tour. We all found this to be one of the highlights of our travels to France.

This was a highlight of our time in Antibes. Phillipe arrived ahead of the appointed time, the car is a delight, and our half day morning tour was perfect. We throughly enjoyed the drive, the perfume and candy factory tours and learning from Phillipe about the area. Highly recommend this tour. Arranging the booking online was easy to manage and being picked up and dropped off at our hotel made it very easy for us.

A great driver who explained everything to us, took us to wonderful places, gave us enough time to take in the surroundings and all this was enhanced by driving in a historic car. We are very glad we chose it and will definitely do it again sometime.

Philippe was a great tour guide! The car was comfortable and it was a really fun way to see the area. He brought us to some great locations that we wouldn’t have found without him. I highly recommend this experience.

Philippe made our time in France so memorable! He was kind & humorous. He showed us around his vintage ride to the village of Gordoun & more. I’d 100% recommend this tour!
