You have decided to take the 4 hours tour to Monaco and its surroundings today, probably the smartest move when visiting the French Riviera.

After being picked-up at your hotel by our English-speaking tour guide in his mini-van, drive up towards the scenic Moyenne Corniche, one of the three coastal roads connecting Nice to the Principality of Monaco.

It will not take you long before realizing how panoramic the drive is, a short distance away from the city, you will then enter the heights of Villefranche-sur-Mer overlooking its magnificent bay. A very good opportunity for pictures right from the start.

Not even midway, and 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’, in time for the change of the guards(morning only). You will be given some free time to wander around the old town for a souvenir maybe, or even admire the view from the St. Martin Gardens, and definitely visit Monaco’s Cathedral and its chapel of the late sovereign Princes and Princesses.

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.

This day was definitely a special one - we got to see the stunning village of Eze - which is what you see in postcards. Don't miss the garden - which is pat of Eze - but you have to pay 6 Euros per person - but well worth it - especially if you want pics of a lifetime. Of all the medieval villages - this is the most picturesque with panoramic views throughout. Wear comfy shoes - we had on flip-flops as it was hot, but probably should have had on our sneaks. You can get a little winded climbing all of the stairs, but something to not be missed. This was our favorite thing we've done while here for 2 weeks! Monaco is also unique and we got to see the changing of the guards (we just made it with 5 minutes to spare) - and how lucky we were to see the Prince arriving into the palace in his high end black BMW as he pulled in through the crowds awaiting the changing of the guards. Only had about 30 minutes here - wish we had another 30 minutes more to have lunch and maybe walk around a bit. That would be our only negative. We had probably the most thorough guide yet - she spoke German and English which came in handy as we had 2 people from Slovakia with us on our time. She knew every detail of everything we saw - so it was so nice to hear her perspective! Fantastic trip - make sure you sign ip for this one!

We have teenage sons who can be tough to please. They enjoyed this trip and our tour guide,Jenna, did an excellent job and made some adjustments to the trip to maximize our experience. I am very glad I didn’t try to drive to see these areas as driving in Monaco would be particularly tough to navigate. Also, Jenna provided very interesting commentary on the areas we drove through. Highly recommend the trip.

Our tour guide had a great command of the English language and was able to not only explain the sites and countryside but provided interesting commentary on every day life in France. Also had a good sense of humor !

With 4 different countries represented on this small tour, the driver was professional , very personable , knowledgeable about the area and gave a feeling of caring about doing his best. It wish he was our drivers on other tours we took. He was on time and gave instructions clearly. The drive to Monoco was spectacular. I would recommend this trip and especially if you could get the same driver we had. Marvin from Minnesota

Unbelievable small group tour. Vinesh (from Mauritian Island) was an absolute delight. There was a family of 3 and myself and Vinesh was very considerate of our needs and wants on the tour. I would recommend this tour to anybody holidaying in Nice. Thanks Vinesh..

Good tour. Our guide was great - sorry can't remember his name. It is very nice being in a small group tour - the van can get places the buses can't. He gave us a good amount of time in the places we wanted to be. Great for a half day tour - saw the things we wanted, and not a lot of time on the road.

Everything about this half-day tour worked. We were picked up on time, and got the other four passengers-- all pick ups were easy. Suzane did a remarkable job-- driving and guiding flawlessly! She was full of GREAT information about Nice and all locales, and she accommodated our requests with great, good cheer. At the end, Suzane delivered us to the ship terminal in Monte Carlo a special request!, and her Bon Voyage was the perfect send-off for our adventure on the new Silver Muse. Thank you, Suzane!

The guide picked us up at our hotel, she was very friendly and extremely informative, giving us information about the different places as we passed. The only thing, there was six of us and all agreed that maybe we would like to have skipped the perfumerie and spend more time in Eze.

Great guide, Spoke English very well. Wish we had more time in Monaco and less time at perfumery sales pitch. Eze is just beautiful and we did have enough time for great photos.

Our tour guide was great. We saw so many wonderful sites and stopped at many picturesque places on the way. We really enjoyed the village of Eze, the fragrance factory was great, and we enjoyed walking around Monaco.

Would highly recommend this tour. We are a family of 4 with children aged 12 and 15 and we all appreciated the experience we gained from this tour. We stayed in Nice for a few days over Easter and considered visiting Monaco by our selves but we're so glad we didn't as we wouldn't have seen or leant a fraction of what we did. Excellent tour guide, thank you :-
