Know More about this tour

This small-group tour is limited to eight people, ensuring a more personalized experience. A very good choice indeed as this tour is an excellent blend of the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera and its perhaps more authentic and picturesque side too.

After being picked-up at your hotel by our English-speaking tour guide, you will head towards the motorway (speedway) and drive from there to the the scintillating town of Cannes, cradle of today’s number one Film Festival in the world. Facing the Palace of Festivals and Congresses, you might feel like walking up ‘the 24 steps of glory’ and perhaps strike your most graceful pose on the red carpet.

You will then take the coastal road to Antibes, a town which played the role of sentinel for the country during many centuries, hence its ramparts circling the Old Town. Saint-Paul-de-Vence will enchant you. When walking through the mesmerizing maze of cobbled streets with their numerous listed monuments, it becomes clear how this medieval village appealed to a vast number of artists with the likes of Matisse, Modigliani, Chagall or Picasso instilling a definite artistic touch that one can now ascertain when gazing at the windows of the countless art galleries. The quaint village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence as their ideal retreat when coming to stay on the Riviera.
You will then take a halt to venture into one of France’s prettiest villages: Eze, filled with history and offering a stunning location over 400 meters right above sea, a truly unique place on earth. Meet up again with your driver and, just around the corner, seize the chance to visit the renowned Fragonard Perfume Factory and discover the secrets of this realm of fragrances. After this hour and half or so spent in Eze, on the road again, you will proceed up the coast and reach the Grande Corniche, the highest road from where you can catch the sight of the most ancient Roman vestige on the French Riviera: the ’Trophy of the Alps’ in the village of La Turbie.

From there, you will start your descent towards the state-city of Monaco and its Palace on the ’Rock’. You will be given some free time to wander around the old town, admire the view from the St. Martin Gardens, and definitely visit Monaco’s Cathedral. Then, you will be literally back on track with your guide as he will drive you from start to finish on the street circuit of the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix! Make a stop at Monte-Carlo’s Casino and its display of luxury cars beside and get the chance to gamble few coins inside this magnificent building (10€, afternoon only) and capture with eyes and memory only its beautiful inner architecture.

  • Loved this tour! Great way to visit the French Rivera in a limited time. Cathy was very nice and knowledgeable of the cities. We had a full day tour and loved every minute!

  • The trip was very good - seeing so many beautiful and interesting places in one day. The guide was marvellous, introducing us the places in detail. The only drawback is that there was very little time for even a quick bite of sandwiches. It seems that the visit to perfume factory can be cancelled.

  • The tour guide was fine but the tour was entirely too rushed. There were too many stops for the time allotted. We had 15 minutes in Cannes, 15 minutes in Monte Carlo not even enough time to enter the casino and 15 minutes near the palace in Monaco. There was a little more time at the other stops but not enough anywhere. I would NOT recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the French Riviera.

  • Covered a lot on this Tour which was well organized and paced. Comfortable transport, good guide.

  • We chose this tour because people had said it was fast-paced, and my husband and I typically enjoy moving quickly. However, this was a bit too fast paced, and we often had 15 minutes to stop and enjoy locations. If you want to see a lot in a single day, it's worth it, but I think I may have split this up over a few more days. But it was a great way to see all of the area!

  • Excellent tour . Thierry ? was very informative and had a lot of knowledge about the area we went to. Stopped at all the major sites to allow for photographs and time walking around. A great tour , and we saw things we hadn't known about . Nice is truly an amazing place to visit
