Riviera Driving Tours' classic, 5 night/6 day cabriolet tour is an exciting, one-of-a-kind adventure that just may be the best way ever to discover the beautiful south of France.

Our concept is simple - we remove the hassle from vacation planning so you can focus on one thing upon your arrival in Nice: sliding behind the wheel of your Cabriolet and cruising down some of the most spectacular roads on the planet.

We take full advantage of our many years of experience in the area to meticulously design daily routes that highlight the best roads, villages, restaurants, and sights of the French Riviera and arriere pays (back country).

The tour is designed in a convoy format with our home base in St Paul de Vence (no moving from hotel to hotel each night), but guests are always free to blaze their own trail through the French countryside if they wish, i.e., it’s not mandatory to drive in a rally formation.

Tour booklets, GPS Navigation systems, and two-way radios (one per vehicle) ensure that your next destination is never in doubt. 

The Riviera Driving Tour, though, is not just about driving.

Cuisine plays an especially important role.  We only select restaurants that over the years (we do a lot of research) have consistently delivered the most sumptuous food, friendly service, and gratifying ambience.

And what is France without wine?

Our resident sommelier/wine guru Jean Pascal will be on hand to introduce us to the delicious wines of the arriere pays.

It's true, everything just looks better from inside a Mini!
