May is spring time and the most beautiful time of year to be in the Cote d’Azur - “where the sun shines for 320 days a year”. You’ll see why the French Riviera is a favourite destination - chic shops, dramatic architecture, stylish people, exotic cars, gastronomical delights, amazing history and the height of fashion.  And you'll see why for centuries people have said that Northern Italy is among the most spectacular places to visit. The region has charm, style and culture in abundance. If you've never been to the Italian Lakes, you're in for a treat!

Our tour allows plenty of time to take in everything these beautiful regions have to offer, we don't need to rush anywhere and have many options of what to see along the way.

We specially produce a Roadbook for participants in The Ultimate Grand Prix Experience - it’s your bible for the tour. Included is a wealth of practical information to help you along the way. There’s information such as guidance on language, etiquette, food and driving tips for each country we visit. There are details of each destination, how to get to your hotel and where dinners will be. There is information about points of interest en route and features at each destination, with historical and general interest notes. Each of the excellent hotels and restaurants have been carefully selected, is of a very high standard and well located. 

It's not just a tour for rev-heads. We've been complimented by past participants who are not car enthusiasts but have enjoyed the many facets of our tour...

For 2017 we have a fabulous itinerary. The tour cost is AUD$11,300 for the Main Tour, per person on twin-share or double basis - the option period is just AUD$1540 per person.
