Your tour of Cannes, Antibes, and St. Paul de Vence starts with an afternoon hotel pickup in Nice. Get cozy in the air-conditioned minivan as you ride for about 20 minutes (depending on traffic) over to your first stop, Cannes.

In Cannes, see the area it’s most famous for — Boulevard de la Croisette. The boulevard stretches along the Mediterranean Sea and is the place where the annual Cannes Film Festival is held. Get a chance to walk down the same red carpet as some of your favorite celebs. Also, pass by the luxurious shops, hotels, and restaurants along the way.

Next up is Antibes. Get back in your minivan, and relax on the ride — it’s about a 25-minute ride in no traffic. Drive through the town’s old town and market square to the port. At the port, you can take in views of luxurious yachts, clear water, and even Pablo Picasso’s house.

After your time at the port, hop back in the van for a ride that’s about 35 minutes. Once you reach St. Paul de Vence, you can explore the medieval village with your guide.

Your half-day tour ends with a hotel drop-off back in Nice.

Antibes and St. Paul de Vence were wonderful. Wished for more time in both towns.
, Oct 2019
We really wished we had more time to spend in Antibes and St. Paul de Vence. Only 45 minutes in each town. Antibes has The Picasso museum and we rushed through trying to see as much as possible in a short time. The town looks so quaint. Would have loved more time to explore it. St. Paul de Vence beautiful medieval village. Again rushed through because we were only given 45 minutes. The trip started with Cannes and there really is nothing to see there.

St Paul de Vance should be at least 2 hrs, Cannes, from what we saw, could have been deleted all together, Antibes had a nice port but if you want to see old town, Picasso museum and port, you are out of luck.
Nice holiday

Just waned to see Cannes, not enough time spent there. Antibes and St, Paul de Vence lots of shops and restaurants just to spend money, Did not interest me.
Good tour but not enough time at places

Your guide and logistics are fine but there isn’t enough time to look around. On average you are given 30 minutes before meeting up. I recommend extending ur by 2-3 hours, include time for lunch so you are not just walking through each town.
Tour in French Riviera

The destination was ok, Cannes, not particularly worth seeing, Antibes ok, and St Paul, fabulous. The guide was disinterested in his job, lacking information or enthusiasm about the destinations. He was an aggressive and unsafe driver. He drove too fast and too close to the other vehicles. When a passenger asked him to slow down, because she was getting car sick, he hardly changed his speed.

My tour guide was kind enough to let me know, the day before, that my pick-up time would be later than originally scheduled. I loved visiting each of the stops and getting the chance to walk around and enjoy each city. My guide also allowed us to have a little extra time in Antibes and pointed out two original Picasso paintings houses in a restaurant in St Paul de Vence.
1/2 Day of fun...but
, Aug 2019
We enjoyed this half day excursion to Cannes, etc. but was a bit quick. Spent more time in Antibes and St. Paul De Vence rather than Cannes which is a larger city and more touristy. Our guide which basically drives you to the sites, did a good job of pointing out info in the van that was nice to know. We recommend it but it is a quickie..
Utter disappointment
, Aug 2019
The “driver-guide”, who never introduced herself properly to us, was lacking enthusiasm. Rather than properly introducing Nice and Cannes or the other destinations, she played music for 20 mins during the drive to Cannes and said none of us were interested in the history of Cannes. She also “took a short cut” up the hill to “avoid traffic” after leaving the highway on the way to Cannes. Instead of the lovely seaside and beaches of Cannes, we only saw residential areas. At the stop of Cannes we got to see the venue for the film festival for 20 minutes . No time or chance was given to experience or take photos of the beach or seaside of Cannes. For the rest of our journey in the city, the driver merely drove past the city at full speed, feeding our minds whenever our group mates asked. At Antibes, the driver gave brief introductions and wasn't polite towards any further questions. The time at Antibes was somewhat adequate for a very brief idea of the town. At St. Paul de Vence, we had no chance to take photos of the whole village from afar, as the driver always seemed to make haste. She was also murmuring to herself as she ‘unfold’ the story of the town. Her lacklustre introduction was sheer perfunctory. The time allowed for each place was very limited as she said in a strict tone that no one should be late. It's always like we were procrastinators. We wondered why it was a half day tour if the time was inadequate. Unlike other tours we joined in Nice, she did not walk us along any place. She only assumed her role as chauffeur. It's the only scar in our stay in Nice!
Great way to see the French Riviera with little time

I was nervous after reading other reviews but found this tour to be well worth the money and was able to see some great stops in the little time we were spending in the Nice area. The company was very accommodating. Recommended!
Great experience

Arthur was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this tour to all.
