A packed itinerary to see almost everything in a day . lucky that we got 2 bubbly and funky lady guides ie Rym and Lynn who were wonderfull in making sure that we really enjoyed and had a fun adventure on the French Riviera.

A great trip and excellent way to spend the day. The guide was superb and knowledge. We had the time needed however of all the places we visited extra time at Eze and Saint Paul would make it so much better. I feel an extra hour is needed overall to make it the perfect trip. Thank you

The guide is very helpful and knowledgeable and controls the time very well for this tighted schedule trip.

Eze is small but most beautiful of all. Unfortunately, Nice is not included. Nothing interested in Cannes. They should spend time in Eze, Monaco, and Nice, and remove Cannes. Tour guide Ahn Zar is very friendly and helpful (not sure if I spelled his name correctly).

Well organised and good commentary by guide Fernandes through out. No attempt to finish early . In fact returned to pickup point much later in an attempt to stop and give adequate time at various places. Eve, Monaco/ Monte Carlo, Cannes, Antibes, St Paul Vence were all excellent places to see.
• Submitted 27 Sep 2019
This was the best way to see absolutely every place you would want to visit when staying in Nice for a short time. So many photos, scenic areas and free time to walk the old streets and take in the culture. Highlights included Eze, the perfume factory and Monaco. Great value for money! Rym, our tour guide, was incredibly friendly.

Really informative and interesting day. Got to see all the main cities and sights. Would 100% recommend this. There were only 8 of us in the tour which made it even better. Rym our driver and tour guide couldn't be faulted. Thanks for a great day!

If you're open to exploring outside of Nice, this is the best tour to do from this company and from our guide Arthur. Going to Eze, Monaco, Saint Paul de Vence, Cannes, and the surprising stop Antibes. Perfect day trip to give a perspective of which towns/cities to go back to. From this tour Is realized I want to go back to Saint Paul de Vence and Antibes. Two places I wouldn't have even thought of going to.

We were wanting to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time so we booked this trip. It was wonderful! Saw so much of the French Riviera. Eze, Monaco, Cannes were all great. Our guide Andreu did a great job and made our day one that I will remember for years! Loved the hotel pick up in the morning too!

Our guide, Cecile ( I think that was her name - sorry, I'm writing this review a couple of months after my tour), was wonderful! She was entertaining and informative. This was a fast paced tour since you visit quite a few cities in one day, but I never felt rushed. It was like Hop On Hop Off bus, if you will, tour of the South of France. :-) If you have a limited amount of time in Nice, this is the perfect tour to visit the Cote d'Azur and get to know this beautiful area. I highly recommend it.

Excellent day tour, covered multiple cities/towns in the countryside. Adequate time at each stop for photos, 1 a quick lunch, and learned a little history about each place. Very knowledgeable guide and the perfume factory was really interesting!! Beautiful gift shop as well. Our 2 young adult children ages 26 and 23 that came along were very impressed with the entire day tour as well. Highly recommend.

Alessandriou was an absolute fab guide he went over and beyond with his service and knowledge! Would 100% recomend this trip to my friends as it was a wonderful way of seeing as much as Southern France in a day as possible!
• Submitted 15 Jul 2019
This was a great tour. Our tour guide was Andreau, he was excellent, we had such a wonderful day, from start to finish. He was very knowledgeable. We hit all the stops, and had a great time. I did this tour with my daughter, we both had the time of our life. If you want a great tour of the French Riviera, this is the tour to take. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Again, I would like to add Viator, need to update or add more options for "What sort of visit was this?, as this was a tour I did with my adult daughter.

This trip is an absolute must do when you’re visiting Nice, unless you’re staying for a long enough time and you’re planning to visit each one of the listed spots on your own. But even then if you don’t have solid pre knowledge of the history and the current affairs of the sights you’ll be just looking at pretty sceneries. And here comes the role if the guide. We had the absolute luck and privilege to be guided and toured around by the amazing Elizabeth! She’s such a light-hearted, fun, knowledgeable, ready to help and full of enthusiasm young lady! If you have the chance demand her for a guide when booking. Without her the our day trip at the French Riviera would not have been the same! Thank you, Elizabeth!

We had a wonderful tour and driver. While it was a full day tour, it was necessary to see all that we did and the time passed quickly. It was well worth the price of the tour.

Our guide Elizabeth was fantastic in all ways. The day was long but well worth all the site visits and knowledge from Elizabeth Well done Elizabeth!!

Me and my husband took this trip in May 2019, and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a good option for people who have less time, but want to cover several cities/towns in French riviera. Our guide was Elizabeth, and she was awesome. She arrived at our hotel perfectly on time to pick us up. She explained the history of the places very nicely and helped us to have the best out of the trip. Overall, we enjoyed a lot :-)

Love our guide, Rym whom is both knowledgeable and charismatic. She is very organised and always ensure that everyone is well informed during the entire tour. We manage to complete all the destination (Eze, Monaco, Cannes and Sait Paul de Vence and did the Parfumerie Fragonard factory visit.

Great and interesting itinerary! Elizabeth was such a great tour guide! She was very bubbly and entertaining to all of the guest considering the mixture of guests she had. We were amazed how she shifted from talking in english then to Spanish. She is also very knowledgeable of the destinations. Really a good recommendation for tourists!

We had a great time on this excursion. Our driver, Wagner, showed up exactly on time and was very professional and friendly. His knowledge of the French Riviera is very impressive and he is a very pleasant person to be around. I would highly recommend this day trip!

Nothing to complain with. Our quide, the yongest son of Attila - Csaba, tried his best to show us nice places of french riviera. Do not miss the advice given below - to grab some sandwiches in Monaco, so you will have more time to expolore St paul de vence
