    This was a very unique and let’s face it a very rare occasion to drive an actually Ferrari! The car was smooth, tight and fast! My co pilot was wonderful and pointed out interesting areas I would not have seen or been aware. This is a must do experience!

    I've always wanted to drive a Ferrari and where better for my first experience to be but in the French Riviera. The car arrived 15-20 minutes early. I was able to get plenty of photos before the drive and the "check in" process was effortless. I believe we were already on the road before my reservation officially started. The drive was amazing! We left the Nice port and headed straight to the Grande Corniche. The Ferrari handled the curves perfectly and the overlooks of the ocean and Eze were beautiful. This was a perfect experience. No pushy upsells, no BS, just pure adrenaline and a dream come true!

    My daughter and I went for the Co-pilot experience and it did not disappoint. From beginning to end it was a truly memorable experience. Booking was simple and we were kept up to date with information every step of the way. Our pilots, Jean-Marc and Benjamin were professional, friendly and courteous throughout. The cars were a dream to ride in, the route we took was stunning and we stopped off at a couple of amazing view points along the way. We would definitely recommend this; a wonderful memory for the memory bank. Thank you Jean-Marc and Benjamin for making our trip to Nice extra special.

    The Ferrari Sports Car Experience was a birthday present for my husband. It was a perfect choice. I booked the experience for a Sunday afternoon based on reviews that commented that traffic could be a real problem. Paul met my husband behind the Hotel Negresco and off they went with my husband behind the wheel and a huge grin on his face. Paul was great. They hit it off and they had a good experience talking and driving together. There was no traffic and they got out of town without any delay giving my husband the opportunity to do a lot more driving on the roads. It was the thrill that he expected and the highlight of our trip to Nice. Thank you Paul, for a wonderful experience.

    Excellent experience with Steve who was excellent and an experienced racer. Ferrari 430 with paddle shift gears and no clutch is incredible, so fast and easy to drive. Liven up are well organised and keep you updated if there are weather conditions or delays and were very helpful. Highly recommended once in a lifetime trip, James bond feeling of flying up the same mountain roads, top down is a thrill. Great instructor and would love to do again.

    As an absolute nut when it comes to Ferraris I've had a half-an-hour driving experience in a F430 in Eze. I can only recommend it and ask for Paul (if possible, I just got lucky and was given him, in my opinion the best codriver I could ever imagine). Great drive, great car, great experience.

    Spent a few days in Monaco as part of a European tour driving my own Audi S3 through France, Switzerland and Italy loving the roads and views and my beautiful girlfriend by my side what more could a man want. We went to the Monza Grand Prix and buzzing from the atmosphere then went to Monaco and walked the route of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix wallowing in the luxury of the buildings, yachts and cars. My wonderful girlfriend had booked a 30 minute drive in a Ferrari F430 round Monaco for me as the cherry on the cake and I loved it! The car arrived at the famous Fairmont hotel where we were staying sited directly opposite the even more famous hairpin bend of the F1 circuit and it was from here I set off to spend the most incredible hour of my life being an F1 and car enthusiast for all of my young fifty something years. Paul the delivery driver and passenger for the experience was excellent and unbelievably trusting with a concise brief explanation of how it all worked I started the car up turning heads in the car park as I did so roaring into life in a way only a Ferrari can. We set off and followed the route of the Grand Prix for a short way running through the harbour tunnel and on round past the swimming pool as Paul chatted casually and in a most knowledgeable way about what I was seeing around me. Having tootled through the town roads he directed me out on the Nice road and through a rock tunnel that was blissfully quiet in traffic terms allowing me to push the car on a bit with the result of the glorious V8 echoing its animal growl all around me a moment of joy which I will never forget. The rest of the drive was equally wonderful, up the winding roads above Nice then a brief stop to admire the view and get a bit more local history about the rich and famous and where they lived. Back in the car and back through more tunnels of Monaco to finish with a slow pass of the Casino and the smug smile on my face must have been very visible as the tourists snapped photos of the gleaming red Ferrari passing them by wondering who the lucky owner might have been behind the wheel. Back to the hotel and once again admiring glances as I pulled off into the forecourt. It was a superb experience and Paul was informative and friendly and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves cars and wants to do something special to remember a a visit to the incredible Monte Carlo. It is great value and even though I was so lucky to have it paid for by my generous partner I would have happily paid it myself, do it you will smile for days!

    Mon fils (23 ans, autiste) était ravi de son cadeau d'anniversaire - une heure comme passager d'une Ferrari, pilotée par Pierre qui était sympathique et a permis a mon fils non seulement de passer un moment super agréable mais aussi d'apprendre pleins de choses sur la voiture. J'ai retrouvé mon fils au bout d'une heure avec un grand sourire. Merci Pierre !
