Our captain, Fred, was very easy-going, adaptable to our requests and made the experience great overall. While this is a costly experience/adventure, it was well worth it to have a whole boat to ourselves for several hours. We enjoyed the tour and the highlights that were pointed out to us along the way. The drinks were cold and the selected anchor points were great for swimming and snorkeling. The equipment provided was clean and in good condition - the towels were nice and the boat was in GREAT condition.

We had a fantastic afternoon with our excellent skipper. The weather was quite windy for most of the week that we were in Nice and we were kept informed on a daily basis as to the best day to go out, our enjoyment and safety were their priority which was much appreciated. Our children had a fantastic time swimming in the sea in one of the most beautiful bays. Highly recommended trip!

This was a truly amazing experience. We loved spending some time on the Med and swimming straight from the boat. The boat was lovely and the captain was fabulous. Just the right amount of laid back, informative, great driver and knowledgeable about the area. He took us to the perfect swimming spot. Worth every penny to spend some time swimming from the boat and seeing the coast from the perspective of the sea and shoreline. 5 starts for sure!!

We booked this tour for 2 ..... we wanted more of a private "couples " outing. Our guide... Julien was excellent. We went right along the coast, ventured into all the little bays and marinas....a great way to see all of this beautiful area ....all the way to Monaco. Perfect! btw...bring a jacket!

The captain was young, experienced and personable. The tour we took from the harbor in Nice to Monaco to see the coastline towns between the two points. He stopped or slowed in all beachfront areas so we could check out the local swim spots and the tourist swim spots. We did not snorkel or swim - it was too cold - Breathtaking views. I do believe it was a little pricey for the afternoon for 6 persons and I will say that it is not a yacht, but a very nice boat, well kept and maintained, clean and comfortable. It was a fun afternoon!

Was just 3 of us - being out on the water was spectacular and we got to see so many beautiful sites, Cap Ferrat was spectacular. This is not a luxury yacht it does however look similar to what is shown in the photo although ours had a canopy which we needed for some shade. It was super clean and comfortable. We were also able to sit out on the front of the boat, a real treat. Driver Frederick was not very informative - you had to ask a question otherwise no information was forthcoming. We were able to bring our own wine on to the boat. Boat was not where it was supposed to be on the map which was a little confusing. We finally found him about 5:50 getting gas but all good. Was pricey for three people.

Our Captain was amazing. Great guide with lots of local knowledge and great attitude. Only disappointment was the lack of snorkling equipment that was specified on the booking as being available. That would have made with swimming more interesting. Great to see the cities from the water - highly recommend it.

i would give it one star only coz the skipper was a nice guy. This was by no means a luxury yacht cruise. It was a simple boat and we had to take our shoes off for the whole trip. The champagne was a cheap one and the glasses were old plastic ones with no base . We were extremely extremely disappoin
