It was a PACKED day with TONS of information, but we loved every minute of it. Our guide, Irene, was so knowledgeable about the area and an excellent driver. She went above and beyond to accommodate our group, making a special stop on the way home simply because we mentioned it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some of the highlights of the French Riveria.

In a short time you can visit and see many beautiful places. It's really worth it. The only thing we had was little time for a snack, since the roads were busy that day. Here, everyone chooses for themselves whether to see the local beauty or eat quietly in a cafe/restaurant :) Some people do both, or you can take something with you for a snack on a trip.

A fairly intensive but great way to experience the French Riviera & Monaco in one day!!! Our driver, Basily, was punctual & professional at all times…Vehicle was extremely clean & comfortable. We were picked up & dropped off right in front of our cruise ship from the port of Nice. Great value very comprehensive day tour!!!

It’s a bit rushed for every stop since we have members who need to catch up on the cruise but overall a great experience! Loved our guild Jean (Mr. Young) so very fun dry sense of humor!

Great day out went to some amazing places. So much easier than trying to get to all these places by yourself. Highly recommend
