8:00 AM
Complimentary pick up in hotels centrally located in Nice city (postcodes : 06000 or 06100 or 06200 or 06300).
After complimentary pickup from your Nice hotel, relax in a comfortable minivan for the trip along the Mediterranean Sea from France into Italy. Upon arrival, you'll have a couple of hours to browse for bargains and must-have items.

While the shopping in Nice is perfectly lovely, it's fun to hop across the border into neighboring Italy for a shopping spree in some of the colorful Italian markets of San Remo and Bordighera. These markets are known for their leather goods, fashionable clothing, luggage, household items, accessories, and souvenirs.

After shopping, you'll stop for lunch and a visit to Dolceacqua (own expense). 

The minivan carries only eight passengers, meaning your small-group tour is limited in size, ensuring personalized attention from your English-speaking guide.

It was a very informative tour .. didn’t love the market at san remo. Our tour guide was great only thing is when we asked if we can go back to get a magnet as we collect them he said no. Even though we came back Early to our hotel ! Other than that everything was ok.

We had a great time, our driver Nadir was so patient and well informed, we visited Bordighera, Dolseacqua and another town, we did this but I can’t remember the name, it was just awesome and great weather tour for the wonderful views of the towns, we didn’t care about the shopping much.

Love this tour. It's my third time taking it. Our driver Antonio was wonderful. If you have an opportunity to take this tour, I highly recommend it. The leather goods alone make it worthwhile and who can resist lunch in Italy?

We so enjoyed our day. Rolf drove us through the foothills of the Alps sharing the area history, places & people of interest. We had great fun in both towns & the San Remo open markets were exquisite. Nice lunch in Dolceacqua 2 blocks off the square. The castle was amazing and Rolf shared a wealth of information. He did a great job. We highly recommend this tour

Nice trip into Italy...
DomandRose_T
, Aug. 2019
We enjoyed this day trip in Italy to two very nice towns San Remo and the quaint Dolceaqua. Our guide which was basically the driver of the van was a bit informative however spoke more about the economics than the beauty of the towns. Except when in Dolceaqua, there he did a good job. We recommend this tour partly because we like Italian culture, but more over because from Nice, its a day to see something different. And shop the markets!! Bellissimo!!

Was a spectacular tour. Beautiful countryside and the markets were fantastic. Our tour guide, Sandrine was the best. She was so knowledgeable and gave us so many facts and pieces of information. We had our 11 year old twins with us and they also enjoyed the day. Well worth the time.

A good tour for a chance to see places like Menton and Cap Martin. The Italian market in San Remo is avoidable as it is more a flea market.

The weather was awful that day, so our guide improvised throughout the day. The Markets were canceled that day, but we did make it to Italy and had a fabulous lunch and then some small village walking tours. The other couple with us had never been to Monaco, so we traveled there and they were able to see the casino in Monte Carlo and part of the country of Monaco. We didn't get to the markets, but had a great time anyway.

Our tour guide Adrianne was the best, she couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour, Cappuccino with pain Chocolat at the San Remo market and mussels/escargot for lunch in Menton so good.

The tour was fun. I wish we had a smaller group, some of the facts that we were being told along the way were hard to hear when sitting in the back of the van. Matilda did a wonderful job, but the first market we stopped at was not as great as expected. There were some interesting goods to purchase but we also saw many things made in China and the men walking around selling Rolex watches were annoying. All-in-all it was a good time and we got to see places we would have otherwise not been able to see.

, Sep. 2016
Our guide was lovely and very informative she gave us lots of information about the history of the ares we were visiting. The only criticism I would make is that some more direction could have been given at Sanremo and Menton. The idea of free time is good, if all you want to do is to shop at the market but if no personal guide is offered at these drop off points at least a map with the points of interest would have been helpful. A lot of time was wasted looking for points of interest.

Wonderful trip! Great shopping, particularly the scarves for E2 each. Made perfect gifts to take home as they were light weight, packaged in plastic bags and fit nicely into suitcases. Guide was a delight:
