    Azamara had to change our debarkation port from Monte Carlo to Nice. And unfortunately this was on Good Friday that we were trying to get hold of the company to make sure they knew. Neither us, Viator or Azamara could get hold of anyone for almost 36 hours. Everyone left voice mails and emails with no response. We did not know if they would be there or not. When we got off the boat, other companies booked through Viator where there to pick up there people but not ours. We finally got hold of the office 10 minutes before our tour was supposed to start. They still had no idea that our port had changed. We got the driver's phone number and he was almost to Monte Carlo From here, everything was great. Daniel is an excellent tour guide. Even with the issues, I would still highly recommend this company if all of their tour guides are as good as Daniel. And this was in the evening on Holy Thursday and the entire day of Good Friday. I will give them that excuse. But you would think that by minutes before our tour, they would have checked their emails, messages are the ship's location.
