Breathtaking views and amazing architecture experience

Samuel, our guide was early and very knowledgeable of all areas and its history. The views are totally worth it from both the train ride and the hike. This is for those who are used to long walks, climbing up the stairs and up for a challenge. The restaurant where we had lunch served a really good meal and every one of us enjoyed it.

Samuel was knowledgeable and nice guy who explained all the details of each spot and monument. The lunch at one of villages was great quality. However the tour is a bit expensive.

Our guide, Samuel, was excellent. Always providing interesting information about the mountains we passed thru and the villages we stopped at. Lunch at a medieval village was included in the tour price, which was a great surprise. We visited a monastery and had an interesting tour. It is a long day for sure but well worth it!

This trip is enchanting! Samuel our guide was knowledgeable and flexible. We walked the villages with my two teens and a six year old and he customized the trip just for us! The highlight was a cold dip in a river with freezing alps water!

The villages chosen for this trip were incredibly beautiful and had very interesting histories. Our guide Samuel was outstanding. He was continuously pointing things out during the train journey, making sure everyone knew where to look and what features were unique. Our trip was complicated by train cancellations but Samuel got us where we needed to be and was extremely resourceful. I would highly recommend this day trip, certainly a highlight of my time in France. One suggestion would be make sure you have decent footwear as several people in our party suffered uncomfortable blisters from walking in sandals on the cobblestones (lots of up and down hills).

This was a great trip to the villages of Tende, La Brigue, and Saorge. All were incredibly beautiful and the visit to Notre Dame des Fountaines is a must as well. Samuel was very knowledgeable and provided a great overview of the history of the region.
