About
Grasse. . . World perfums capitale In the middle ages, trade in hides and skins develops in Grasse. This activity generating a strong smell, manufacturers perfume their production of gloves, bags and belts from the Renaissance to meet a fashion now for Italy and the entourage of Queen Catherine de Medici. Grasse microclimate allows to grow on-site of flowers in delicate fragrances such as rose, jasmine, Daffodil, carnation, orange blossom and violet. Grasse and its surroundings are then covered with fields of flowers and, in 1614, the King recognizes the new corporation of the 'Glovers perfumers. Circa 1750 appears the process of enfleurage cold that allows to extract the most delicate flowers such as jasmine or the Tuberose scented principle. Modern perfumery techniques are invented and developed in Grasse. Mythical perfumes such as water wild of Dior or mythical N ° 5 Chanel originate there: for more than 200 years, Grasse is the world capital of perfume. Door to door service

          Overall, worth the trip. It was a long day, but seeing Eze was terrific and it was a nice way to get to Monaco and Monte Carlo as well. The French Riviera was simply spectacular. The one negative: our driver (Jacques C.), who was very informative, was over 30 minutes late picking us up at hotel and his car absolutely reeked of tobacco smoke. As my wife and I are not smokers, and do not enjoy that smell, it made for a long day. And then we had clothes that were saturated in smoke to deal with as well. Additionally, the driver ate lunch with us, then mysteriously disappeared when the bill arrived and simply did not return until I had paid the bill, including his portion. It seemed a bit rehearsed, and while he proclaimed that he would reimburse, he never did.

          Fantastic Day in Provence!
          We had an excellent day with Jacques. He was extremely well versed in history and we could not have asked for a better guide. We enjoyed touring three different wineries as well as a visit to a medieval town. I highly recommend this company.

          Great guide
          We had the funniest, very talkative and knowledgeable guide. We visited three different winemakers - we never met the actual winemakers but had the guide who was very familiar with the places, gave us a great tour on two of the three - the third we got the testing in the showroom. The guide listen to our wishes and adapted the trip when possible for us.

          By far an amazing day, especially having a private tour. We were blessed to have Jacques Cygler as our guide. EVERYONE knew him. He's knowledgeable, quirky, has a great sense of humor, and great guide. This is LONG overdue as our trip was 10/22/2018. Thank you Jacques!

          private tour with Jacques Cygler
          Before i get started with describing our beautiful tour, i just want to save you the time , BOOK Jacques Cygler and your Tour will be the best experience !!! Me and my wife and another couple with us were on a 7 day celebrity cruise when we stopped in Nice France, we got lucky to book Jacques, he was waiting for us outside the port area with his mini van,His English is excellent and his sense of humor is amazing. his knowledge of the streets and places was great in where he knew where to avoid traffic to maximize our time. he took us to Eze from nice, then we went to Monaco ,for some site seeing and some shopping , after that he took us to a great french place to eat late lunch , after that we went to Old town nice for some walking, he takes the time to explain history and points of interest to you in details and has the patience to wait, take pictures and gives you as much time as needed to take it all in. I highly recommend him +33(0)611813518 give him a call to book , tell him Haim sent you ;)

          Excellent tour and guide!
          We were a group of 12 people with children ranging from 7 to 17 years old. Jacques has a great sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the French Riviera. We visited Eze and Monaco. Jacques took us to a perfume factory which was a bonus. The whole family really enjoyed Jacques' first hand stories of the famous people he has met and his unique experiences.

          Witty, jovial and knowledgeable
          We were a group of 8 including 2 kids. Jacques made our day fun and interesting, showing us around Cannes, Nice and Monaco. His first hand descriptions of the Cannes film festival and the Monaco Grand Prix were memorable and entertaining. We'll remember him every time we see the event again on TV. Thanks Jacques..

          Wonderful tour of the Riviera
          We were 6 friends who wanted to see the French Riviera. Jacques was the perfect choice for this tour. We left it open for him to show us the sights and it was perfect. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided history and information on every spot we stopped. He had many interesting stories to tell us while driving! We would have liked to go to Nice but thanks for Jacques knowledge of the area he convinced us the traffic would be bad. How right he was. We would have missed the ship if we had done that tour. We saw the beautiful countryside. Highly recommend Jacques as a tour guide! Also, his vehicle was comfortable to travel in! Great day!

          Amazing Day on the Riviera
          We were a party of ((9) that had a full day tour with Jacques as our guide. First of all, Jacques is completely full of information and recommendations for you to enjoy a great day. We traveled to the open air market and beach in Nice, drove to Monaco, through Cannes and we also visited Eze, which was just beautiful. We had plenty of time to stroll, shop and play. The day with Jacques was amazing. I Can't say enough about how wonderful Jacques was, i highly recommend this tour!!

          French Riviera
          I took this trip alone and there were eight other women. Our guide Jacques Cygler was excellent. He was well informed and show interesting and unique places. Jacques went out of his way to help us with our down time which was very enjoyable. Definitely will recommend him.

          Good driver and that's about it
          We were on a tour with Jacques in May, and as the previous poster noted, the first part of the tour was OK. Several of those on the tour had some mobility issues, but he seemed oblivious to this which should have been an indicator of future problems. The wineries we toured were fine, although he knew little of the backstory. Lunch was interesting as he sat at our table while we ate, spoke on his cell phone, and ordered a beer. In the last winery, where we went to a basement cellar, he did not note mobility issues nor make any attempt to walk closely to those with mobility issues. After the member of our party fell, he did not seem to have the skill to manage the emergency effectively. He did not contact the ship, did not contact the hospital, and when called to ask if there was a way back from the hospital to the ship, he had no suggestions. That said, he knows the area well and if you are just looking for a driver, he fits the bill. However, I would not recommend this tour for those with mobility issues.

          Good start, bad ending
          We had booked on a St Tropez-three winery-French countryside tour. Jacques turned up on time at 9 am and commenced our tour with a delightful one and a quarter hour walk around St Tropez. The eight of us then jumped into the minivan for a drive by the sea to Sainte Maxime, where we turned inland through the French countryside towards Le Muy. There was no microphone so anyone in the back seat could not hear any commentary. Our first stop was the Chateau Sainte Roseline winery where we tried 3 reds, 3 whites and 3 roses (Cuvee Prieure being the pick). We then visited the mediaeval village of Les Arcs Sur Argens, where we walked down the hill through the old town to the plaza for lunch (not included) whilst Jacques parked the van. Our next stop was the Chateau de Saint-Martin, where we tried a rose, a white and a red wine. Coming out of the cellar, things turned pear-shaped when one of our group fell down the stairs and badly cut her head and arm. Luckily one of our fellow passengers knew first aid while we waited for the ambulance (which arrived relatively quickly). One of the lovely girls at the winery translated between our english and the ambulance officer's french while Jacques stayed well out of the way and on the phone to who knows who. This was evidently the end of the tour as Jacques, obviously preoccupied, drove us - without commentary - straight back to St Tropez.

          Fabulous and fun guide!
          Jacques was great to take us everywhere we wanted and more! He has a wealth of history knowledge and appreciation of art that was helpful to my sister Mary and I. The only reason I did not give an excellent rating was because at times I found it difficult to hear his explanations on tour. A suggestion is to wear a microphone so we could all hear him clearly.

          Fantastic
          On the tour it was my mother, my two little children and me. We had an unforgettable day with lots of fun for all three generations and a deep inside view on the all obvious and hidden sights at the French Riviera. Thank you for that!
