How many people can reserve a place for an All Things French trip?
A maximum of 7 ladies is possible for all tours. Solo travellers are very welcome. All rooms are single occupancy.
How much walking is involved in the tour program?
The tour involves a lot of walking each day. Although several of the days include chauffeured trips to various destinations, most involve walking and even some hill-climbing (think 'perched villages'!). Please review the tour itinerary and scheduled planned activities to see if the tour is a good fit for you.
Why is this trip designed for women only?
I have always wanted to take women to France, and, to me, there’s nothing like a group of girlfriends laughing away our days – including the inevitable desire to shop!
How will I get to the apartment once I arrive in Nice?
The tour price includes private car service from the airport (or Nice) to the apartment. Transportation will be arranged for you. A driver will be waiting for you when you arrive at the airport or will meet you in Nice Ville. They will have your name, identify themselves to you as the driver for the All Things French, and assist you with your luggage to the car. At the conclusion of the tour, transportation is included for your return to the Nice airport or Nice Ville.
Is it possible to arrive before the tour begins or stay longer after the tour ends?
Of course! In fact, if you are from overseas then I suggest a couple of days in Nice (for example) beforehand to get over any jet lag you may experience. The tour is designed with a fairly relaxing first day to accommodate new arrivals, but you my want to allow yourself some extra time to settle into the Cote d’Azur.
What does the tour price include?
The tour price includes 10 nights at our Villefranche apartment, 10 breakfasts, 4 lunches, morning tea at the Chateau Eza, afternoon tea at the Hotel de Paris, and 5 evening meals, round trip transportation from the airport or Nice Ville to the accommodation, all activities/admissions and services of private guides listed in the planned tour itinerary.
Airfare is not included.
What if I have to cancel my travel plans?
The contract stipulates that the tour deposit is non-refundable for any reason. The tour deposit is paid when you reserve your tour.
The final payment amount is listed on the tour contract along with the due date for final payment. If you cancel a trip after the final payment has been received, we will retain the deposit and 50% of the final payment until 30 days prior to departure. For trips cancelled 30 days or less prior to departure, we will retain 100% paid by you in connection with the booking. Purchasing travel insurance is recommended, and it can be purchased online.
Are partial refunds available if I choose not to participate in the group activity planned each day?
Unfortunately, we cannot refund any portion of the tour price for non-participation in a planned activity.
