    What to Expect
    Your guide will pick you up from Villefranche port of cruise terminal. Board your comfortable vehicle and follow the French Riviera roads where you will admire beautiful views along the coast road to Eze. It is one of so many medieval villages in France, but this time high up on a hill. Observe the winding pedestrian streets, but with various cafes, restaurants and shops. At the top of the hill, you will find the ruins of an old castle and a nice exotic garden. On the way down, admire some arts and if desired, you can even visit a little church.

    Next, your guide will take you for a guided visit in the Fragonard perfume factory. Here you can take part of its long history of how to produce the good scents.

    Monaco and Monte Carlo are next on the list. Visit the majestic Castle where the Prince of Monaco and his family live. Stroll around in the beautiful capital with its large white cathedral. Here you will also find the Maritime Museum, where Cousteau used to work. You will take a tour of the famous race track for Formula One to be held here in Monaco every year.

    The final stop will be Monte Carlo. Luxury and glamour with its typical buildings and boutiques. Just stroll around in this glamorous environment with your professional guide, before he drives you back to Nice.

    Ahhhhhh the French Riviera!
    I didn't take this specific tour but would recommend it. I spent a week in Antibes and traveled/day trips from Monaco all along the coast to Cannes and Nice. The entire area, beaches, museums, art galleries, small restaurants, and pleasant local people made the week so exciting and special. These are usually places that one sees when celebrities are involved i.e. the Cannes Festival. It's so easy and fun to try to be part of the rich and famous world.

    Fabulous City
    My partner and I are just home from a weeks stay in the gorgeous city of Nice, it's our first visit, and we've both fell in love with the place! It's a very busy vibrant city, with lots to offer! The place to be though is the Promenade de Anglais , with its stunning views, and the beach, which is pebbles, the Massena is where you'll find the shops, and you'll be spoilt for choice for food! The buses and trains are very user friendly, and very reasonable, it cost 15 .60 euros return for two to Monaco, and 26.00 euros return to Cannes. All in all we loved our week here, and are planning a return visit in the very near future!

    See as much as possible from Villefranche Sur-Mer
    We booked this excursion through Viator. I would not do this again as Viator makes contacting them for questions etc. very difficult and adds a go between which was not necessary. Also, I booked 5 tours and the only 2 with issues were those booked with Viator. Our guide was Sugar. He is very knowledgable and knows the area (particularly Nice). He was a little late at in our pick up and told us that due to traffic that Cannes and Antibes would not be possible. In hindsight, even if traffic permitted this, these additions would have greatly limited our ability to enjoy Nice, Eze, Monaco and Monte Carlo. Sugar made sure to take us to the best picture spots and did not hesitate to stop anywhere and everywhere this was necessary. He also had a great day planned for us with a great view of the area from a cemetery. He also took photos of our group and was genuinely invested in our have a good experience. He recommended places to grab snacks and took us to the Flower Market in Nice, which was phenomenal. I would strongly recommend him and this excursion. It was not at the same level as the tours I booked with other companies due to the change in itinerary, the van being a Citroen versus the Mercedes we had in other locations. But be prepared, for his being very assertive about staying on schedule and paying attention to his points in locations. Again, his intent is for you to see as much as possible. My only other suggestions, spend as much time at Eze as possible and ask for a bit more time in Nice. These were highlights. Especially Eze.

    Great Tour
    Karen was awesome. She was knowledgeable, warm and fun, planned a great route yet gave us flexibility as it was a private tour. Her car was in great condition and meticulous and she was a safe driver. We enjoyed the Nice-Eze-Monaco tour very much. Total convenience of transportation and local knowledge of scenic spots. We would probably not have been able to do all this on our own. The places we visited are beautiful and interesting (especially Eze), and we enjoyed the conversations with Karen as well. On-time pick up and drop off from our cruise port. Highly recommend and be sure to ask for Karen.

    Tour of Nice and Area
    Our guide was fantastic and helped us shape the days itinerary so that we covered everything we wanted to do and did not feel rushed in doing so. She was knowledgeable, courteous, and enjoyable. It was definitely a highlight of our trip for all 4 of us.

    Private tour of the French Rivera
    This was both a memory tour for me as well as a tour to some new places. I stayed in Cannes on the Rivera for three months when I was 19--many years ago. I wanted to see the apartment that we stayed at, how Cannes has changed and what hadn't changed there, and to go back to places I had been to before such as St. Paul de Vence. I also went to Nice's Old Town, viewed Villafranche from a hill (it used to be a U.S. Navy base), and saw the changes (some not so good ones) that had happened since I was last on the Rivera. I had an excellent guide and the only negative thing about the tour is that we had light rain during most of the day. There is so much to see on the French Rivera that I could easily have added two or more days to the tour.

    Great Riviera Panorama!
    Our driver (named 'Sugar') picked us up promptly at the Nice cruise-harbor. We drove (and walked around a bit) at these very interesting and completely unique destinations: Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Monaco/MonteCarlo, and Eze. He was ok with whatever/wherever/whenever we had a preference (time to spend, lunch, etc.). He was lots of fun as well as full of information. Small Example: He suggested a specific table at a 'bar/hotel' at the top of the lookout/cliff in scenic Eze; although this was perhaps only a small point, it became one of the more memorable highlights of our cruise. I would highly recommend this tour!

    Wonderful day with Sugar
    We has an amazing day with Sugar traveling to Nice and surrounding area. He went above and beyond by accommodating our last minute request to visit the winery and and the perfume factory. While Viator mistakenly bookes us for only 5 hours instead of 8, Sugar spend almost 9 hours with us for no additional charge! He was very entertaining, enthusiastic! The best we had on our 2 week trip!!' Do not hesitate to book the private tour and ask for Sugar!
