Grasse, Gourdon, Tourettes-sur-loup and Saint-Paul-de-Vence with a private guide

This is one of the most enjoyable summer tours. We leave the traffic behind and the glamorous cities to head toward the "arrière pays, " where everything is olive, and we enjoy the mountains and sun.

We start with the international perfume capital, Grasse. Here you will learn how this industry started and how some of these fabulous scents of jasmine, rose, and lavender were created. You will also have time to stroll through the old town and visit the 13th century cathedral. Afterward, we will drive to Gourdon, rated one of the most beautiful villages in France. We then head to another medieval village: Tourettes-sur-loup, the village of violet. Grasse being the capital of perfumery, this town was the main supplier of violets. Finally, we will visit Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the pearl discovered by some young painters in the 1930s.


Provencal Tour includes Grasse, Gourdon (lunch), Tourettes-sur-Loup and Saint Paul de Vence.

A Recent Review of this tour

After telling Walter the sorts of places we had already visited and enjoyed, Walter found a way to take us to places we wanted to go but just didn't know it. He was very professional, congenial, and informative, which made for a very comfortable day. We visited a lot of places that we would not have seen on our own, and we didn't ever feel rushed. A delightful day.
