I had a BALL! Everything was a great new experience. Folks were so wonderful and accommodating. I’ve been telling EVERYONE to visit and make their own parfum. The tour is free… which was great. It’s all in French but you can get a device to do the tour in your language of choice. The parfum making class was easy to follow. We had a great instructor. This is a very unusual activity that I highly recommend.

Opportunity to visit multiple villages and cities including Eze and Monaco in one full day. Very beautiful places to see. Our guide Sylvie was good at giving us information on the tour and history of where we visited. She was a good aggressive driver! Time was limited in each destination so felt rushed, especially in Monaco where we wanted to have a drink and explore a little more but couldn’t.

Very comprehensive and well paced. Saw a lot, really good je would like to see. Very professional tour guide.

An incredible day. Unforgettable places. The guide, Maria makes everything a joyful and interesting time.

amazing experience! :) worth every "penny"! great for curious 11+ too. Enjoy!
