I booked this half day tour with my husband son and daughter in law. What an incredible tour it was. We had the most amazing guide who pointed out all the properties owned by Celebrities, told us stories about Monaco etc. The views were incredible. The perfumery was great as were the little shops in Eze. What a stunning tour!

Antoine was our guide and was fantastic. We first travelled along the coast to Eze. We had time to explore Eze and then had a guided tour of the perfume factory. We then headed to Monaco with time on our own. Antoine was an excellent driver and provided many interesting facts about the places we were visiting. Highly recommend.

I booked this trip for my husband, son and daughter in law whilst in Nice for a 5 day stay. It was fantastic. Our guide Tony was exceptional. Not only did he give us history but shared with us the goings on in Monaco and etc. It was fascinating. Eze was not an easy walk up the hillside (mountain) to the top of the little town, but there were plenty of little shops along the way and in the little alcoves to keep those of us who did not get to the top, very happy. The perfumery was very interesting too and we loved this little town. Monaco was just breath taking with all the opulence to boot. Am MUST do whilst in Nice or surrounds.

We had a wonderful, very informative tour given by Antione. Excellent driver on mountain roads, great local knowledge, and truly caring attentiveness with his passengers, especially my cousin needing extra help in and out of the van because of a previous back/rib injury. We highly recommend this tour to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Nice, Villefranche, Eze and Monaco.

Once again we had a great (half) day out. Picked up from our hotel by Victor and had an excellent running commentary whilst driving through Nice to Eze and Monaco. We stopped at several vantage points to take photos and enjoyed the perfume factory, a walk through Eze and a while to have a wander in Monte-Carlo. Having the free time to explore on our own is terrific, coupled with the knowledge of our driver, adding up to a very enjoyable trip.

Really enjoyed this trip. My Wife, daughter (9 year old) and I had a good time on this trip. Small mini bus with 7 guests in total plus driver/guide. Picked up from hotel and picked up others on way. Drove to Eze was quick. Really fascinating and interesting place. Also popped into perfume factory. This was good and no hard sell as I have experienced at similar places. Then onto Monaco, first stop near palace and have free time to explore. Think we had about 90 minutes. We went to oceanographic museum/ aquarium and had enough time. Next stopped near casino. Drove by where Formula1 race takes place. Then drove back to Nice. Great day trip and driver/ guide was really good. Informative and also funny and relaxed.

Had a great time, tour guide pointed out a lot of interesting facts about the parts of town as we were driving through before we had free time, which helped us decided which way we wanted to walk.

A really nice trip from begining to end, Alexandre was a wonderful guide. He was very informative and told us lots of things that were very interesting. The visit to Eze was lovely but beware there were a lot of steps to climb.I would have liked to have spent more time in Monaco and less at the perfume factory. Only had time for 1 hour in Monaco but this was due to the rest if the party wandering off and having to wait for them. Just managed to see the changing of the guards at the palace. All in all well worth the money but now wished I had done the full day. Highly recommended .

I booked this for Monaco but fell in love with Eze. Save your shopping for Eze. Beautiful views and shops. Not for the faint of heart, a lot of steps but well worth it. Cendren, our guide, was awesome. She knew everything about sights on the way to Eze, perfumes in general and Monaco. I wanted to stay in Monaco so she directed me to train station and that worked perfectly. The whole 1/2 day for the price and time is a bargain well worth it. I loved Fragonard, purchased too much perfume. Love love love Monaco. It's a must-see for the views, the yachts and cars. Had been before but not in the Casino. I thought there was ample time to do everything. I was a little afraid after reading other reviews. It's well worth it for the guide's information, the varied locations and time spent.

The half day tour to Monaco was excellent.Joe our guide was adorable and knowledgable.EZe was a lovely side trip.Wonderful hill town we were given plenty of time to explore. I absolutely loved Monaco and plan to revisit. The tour gave us time to explore. The palace was not open to visitors this time of year but a great city to walkabout. We stay on after the tour and visited the oceanographic museum which was amazing and took the 100 bus back to Nice.Very easy.1 euro 50

The trip was very informative, the village of eze was magnificent we could have spent all day there alone. The visit o Monaco and Monte Carlo was fantastic, beautiful views all the way. Only one compliant, 8 is too many in such a small van, my wife and I were very uncomfortable 0. I think six would be better and charge a little bit more

Pierre, the driver, was great! He was very knowledgeable and made all of the important stop. Gave us time to linger and checkout the spots. He pointed out places of interest, pointed out places for a quick bite, and ensured us there was plenty of time for pictures. Overall, made me a true believer of short and full-day trips.

We really really enjoyed this half day tour. Our lovely tour guide, Caroline, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She stopped off at a couple of scenic outlooks for photo ops before arriving at the village of Eze. This was a delightful little village to explore. Be sure to visit the very first shop just inside the entrance where the old guy inside hand carves beautiful items out of native olive wood. The second stop was the Fragonard Perfumery. I didn't expect to particularly enjoy this portion but was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed learning about how the oils are extracted and the differences between fragrance sprays. Our final stop was Monaco which is very much worth visiting for a couple of hours. We spent most of our time in the district of Monaco Ville touring the church where Grace Kelly is buried and seeing the Prince's Palace. We would have loved time to visit the museum of oceanography, but this tour didn't allow us the time for all of it. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our visit to this pristine area. We made a quick stop in Monte Carlo to see the casino and take a gander at all of the luxury cars will driving the Grand Prix track. While I don't envision re-visiting this beautiful little country, it is definitely worth the trip to check it off your list! Highly recommend this trip!
