  • Our driver/guide was very new at his job only about one week and while he is a very nice young man, he wasn't ready to be out on his own yet. Guests were talking and instead of interrupting he let points of interest go by unannounced. When he did speak, it was too soft for the guests in the back of the van to hear him. At the perfumery stop, due to allergies to perfume, half of the guests asked to be dropped off at the town of EZE just a short ride up the hill, instead of waiting in the van so the others could have the full time shopping. He didn't do this. We waited outside while the others had limited time in the perfumery. He didn't give us any information at Cannes, just parked and gave us 25 minutes to sightsee. No reference was made to a rest stop in the area after driving over an hour after enjoying our morning coffee on the ship! He had to follow the schedule but 45 minutes wasn't enough time to enjoy our visit and find a restaurant for lunch later in the day too. Again, he is a wonderful young man and additional training and tweaking to the schedule is recommended.

  • Would recommend this tour. It covers many areas. One thing I would change is maybe a half hour for a beach stroll in Nice. The villages of St-Paul-de Vence and Eze are something special. Hint, have a glass of wine and lunch in St-Paul-de-Vence just as you enter or leave. Easier than in the village as they prefer a full meal customer. We skipped the perfume factory, and used the time for Eze village and the garden at the top. Awesome views. Monaco and the casino area is pretty but not my idea of fun. Too wealthy for me.

  • Excellent tour. The small group was just family so a real bonus. The driver could easily drive us into and out of places that would have taken much long walking. Beautiful sights!

  • While it was nice to see Cannes, I think the time could be better spent. It was fun to drive the Grand Prix course.

  • Very interesting tour...small group in van with very nice tour guide. Drove thru several cities of Côte d' Azure. Enjoyed Monte Carlo. Would of liked to spend just a little more time exploring the beaches.

  • A wonderful shore excursion. An amazing way to get an overview of the French Riviera.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We took this day trip with another couple traveling with us on a Mediterranean cruise. Due to rough seas, our ship had to drop anchor in the harbor at Villefranche-sur-Mer, instead of Monaco. Because our driver had to pick up a third couple at a hotel in Monte Carlo, and combined with Grand Prix week traffic, he was a little late in picking us up on shore. BUT, he more than made up for it with an outstanding day of touring through Cannes, Antibes, St. Paul de Vencewhere we paused for lunch, Eze and Monaco. He obliged us by taking to places that we definitely wanted to visit and explore a bit as we may have desired, and spending less time at the more touristy or commercial spots that we didn't care so much about. He also gave us a bit longer day than the tour required, so we were thankful that he did so to compensate a bit for the late start. The Mercedes van was comfortable, and our driver was very pleasant and a wealth of knowledge about history and places/things to see that we may not have known about. I would definitely recommend this tour in satisfying the desire for a custom and pleasant day's experience. at what I think was a very good value for the money spent.

  • It was a fantastic day with our driver. We saw everything we wanted to see. Much much better doing small private tours and getting to choose our own itinerary than big group tours , worth every cent or Euro

  • Our driver Oliver was very thorough and spent far more than the allotted time.
    We enjoyed our day on the French Riviera.
