Description Edit

9:00 am: Be met at the foot of your cruise ship or at the lobby of your hotel.


Everything is emphasized in Nice; the bright sunlight makes the colors flash. The green pines happily rub shoulders with the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and that of the sky. It is easy to see why the Côte d’Azur fascinates so many people.


In the morning, the Cours Saleya has daily flower and food markets. Low buildings border the length of Cours Saleya, separating it from the sea. You will view the luxurious Belle Époque-style residences, including the fabulous Négresco palace, built on the sea front. The Négresco, whose dome can be admired from the Promenade des Anglais, is the finest example of Belle Époque architecture. Visit the Russian Church (not available on Sunday mornings). Enjoy a walking tour of the old town. The old town’s soul and history are reflected in the narrow streets and alleys that curve, in an irregular fashion, among old buildings and red-tiled roofs. Give your taste buds a new experience and enjoy some socca with a glass of wine. Socca is a local specialty made from chickpea flour, and a trip to Nice would not be complete without having tasted it! Enjoy lunch at leisure in a typical restaurant in Nice.


During the afternoon you could visit Chagall Museum. The museum was created during the lifetime of the artist, with the support of the Minister of Culture André Malraux, and inaugurated in 1973. Chagall himself provided detailed instructions about the creation of the garden by Henri Fish, and decided the place of each of his works in the museum.


5:00 pm: Return to your ship or to your hotel.

We went through various options for our trip and Didier at Decouvertes was very prompt in updating the plans and quotes to accomodate us. the only issues that came up during the trip were the rental car agency who wanted to charge us twice and the hotels requesting to see a voucher of our payment. Both were resolved through discussions with their staff on duty, but I wonder if there could have been more information made available to us to show that we had pre-paid for these items.

We never had a moment of worry. Our guide John-Noel was so wonderful and professional. We had our high school Junior with us and we were able to see where history was made. It was so exciting to see him so interested and engaged. Thank you for making our trip an amazing experience!!! Excellent hotel recommendations and choices too! It was perfect for us.

The guides on our tours in Southern France were extremely knowledgeable and willing to please. They were flexible to our requests throughout the day to make sure we saw and did what we wanted, which we really appreciated. They were all very well studied in the history of the area and very passionate in sharing that with us. It was a pleasure to discover this beautiful part of the world with Decouvertes.

Descouvertes was an absolutely perfect travel service. Their arrangements of lodging and transportation were done to ensure the maximum of comfort and travel experience in our trip. Every travel guide who met us catered to our desires and demonstrated a full knowledge of the organization they were dealing with on our behalf, especially in airports and train stations. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we toured and did everything to show us the things we were interested in. The Descouvertes service was essential to the overall success and enjoyment of our trip!

We were delighted with our guides. Their knowledge of history, local economy, geography, art and culture was truly impressive. And they both had great personalities, too! Instructions were clear on how to meet to get started. The pace was relalxed but we got a lot done! Restaurants chosen for meals while we were out and abut were charming and our meals were delicious. We also did a large group dinner in Paris, arranged by Decouvertes which went off without a hitch. Here is an agency you can count on for caring service and attention to detail.

Paris ground arrangements

By: Mike and Susan


Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2017

This group provided us a well-qualified and responsive guide for several days of viewing the sites of Paris. They were well-organized and responsive. The guide (Elvira Mendes-Gregoire) was especially good. She understood that we did not want to spend a great deal of time in museums but rather wanted to see neighborhoods and have a sense of the City over a limited amount of time. Based on her guidance we were able to ride the Metro and get around ourselves on the several days we did not have a guide. It was a very enjoyable introduction to Paris for both of us.

Excellent!

We loved the tours they scheduled for us and our guide, Denise. We were treated like VIP's every step of the way and experienced things that most tourists do not see. Denise knows all the guides at the local attractions and gets us right into places that others cannot go. She is very knowledgeable and interesting. We would recommend and use this Tour Operator again any time. Our driver was great too.
