Know More about this tour

Following morning pickup from your Nice hotel by air-conditioned minivan, head out of the busy port city and into the rolling hills of the Provenal countryside.

Travel first to the traditional French village of Castellane, about two hours west. Invisible from afar, this tucked-away 16th-century town emerges as the gateway to the Verdon Gorge (Gorges du Verdon), one of the most impressive river canyons in Europe. Take in views out over the rocky peaks and the Verdon River below from your vantage point on this hillside.

Traveling down to the gorge, pause at Point Sublime to appreciate the breathtaking scenery to the full. Descend down to the edge of the canyon where the river runs into the Lake of Sainte-Croix. Enjoy a little free time here to relax by the aquamarine lake, stretch out on the beach and appreciate the pristine setting.

Back on the road, drive to the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, sitting beneath a rocky cliff wall and surrounded by mountains on all sides. Enjoy free time to explore Moustiers at your leisure. Pop into one of the many pottery shops for which the village is known and buy a few souvenirs before sitting down to lunch at one of the many terrace cafes.

After your time here, hop back into your minivan for the 2.5-hour journey back to your Nice hotel, where your day trip ends.

    We had a wonderful day & our tour guide, Alexander, was outstanding. It was beautiful and worth the trip!

    When staying in the Nice area, it is well worth the drive up into the mountains to finish at the Gorge de Verdon. We took the route where our first stop was Tourettes. This is a quaint little village that has heritage buildings, amazing views, and a little art interest going on. Driving on by Mons, and stopping in Castellane - this town has a dramatic natural stone tower that the adventurous can climb - a lot of people also go white-water rafting. The best drive is between Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, stunning views down the Gorge de Verdon.

    Our guide Mathilde was excellent, informative and charming. She tailored the tour to fit our needs. She was an outstanding driver and the van was well equipped for comfort and the long ride.It was worth the time. We would ask for her again if we are ever in this area again.

    I thought it was quite expensive but once we got over that our driver Camile was very nice, she filled us in on all the information as we were driving along, pulled in in several places so we could take pictures. the scenery is very beautiful.
