  • For those with limited time, this tour is a good overview of Nice and the beautiful coast between Monaco and Nice. Our guide, Nicolas Kolesnikoff, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. One of our group of four had limited mobility so Nicolas modified the tour so she, too, could see the gorgeous countryside. The only problem was finding the right tour van at the congested dock.

  • our guide was absolutely amazing. She took us where we wanted to go there was no rush if we wanted to stay at any one place longer.
    She was very knowledgeable and was one of the best tours we have ever been on. I highly recommend this tour

  • Pleasant tour to Nice. Stopped at a couple off the beaten track places that were lovely.

  • It was fine and covered all the sights as stated. The driver, Momen, kept offering to change the itinerary. He wanted to take us to Eze, which I know is lovely, but the 4 of us are older and knew we were not up to the climb. If we had wanted a tour or Eze we would have booked it.

  • A bit disappointing. We were basically just dropped off to shop. Would have appreciated some info on the history of the area. If we did the same cruise over again, we would have just explored Monaco on our own instead.

  • We really liked the fact that there are only four people plus the driver in the van. This made for a more enjoyable trip. Nice and the French Riviera Côte d'Azur were wonderful. Our driver/guide was fantastic! I'm only sorry I don't remember his name. This excursion is a bargain and shouldn't be missed!

  • Kathy was an excellent driver and knowledgeable guide. She went out of her way to show us points of interest and provide background and historical perspective on sights.

  • Our guide, Terry, was fantastic. He took the time to give us a very personal tour of Nice, with it's stunning views. I would recommend this tour to every one.

  • Was a great half day trip. We ended up being the only people on this tour so we actually had a private tour of Nice. The guide was on time and very nice and accommodating! This was the last day of our cruise and we fly out from Nice. They agreed to drop us off at the airport at the end of the tour!

  • Driver was late picking us up due to traffic but local connection was easily contactable. Well knowledged and a great way to spend half a day. To apologise for being late we were taken up to see Monte Carlo from the top of the hill. Highly recommend if in Monte Carlo - as there isn't much else to do.
