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.

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.

We can love the perfume manufacturer in Grasse , love the view of Gourdon , and definitely village Saint Paul de Vence . And the guide Paifait is a great guy , he knew how to short cut drive and manage the time .
