There are a ton of "tours" that will take you to St. Tropez, but this is truly the best way to get there. It's a little cheaper than the tours and it's the exact same thing... You need to make a reservation (which you can do online), the boat will fill up and you will not be able to go... More

Recommend this trip, especially if part of Riviera day pass. Fun English speaking tour guide, sharing information about celebrity houses and expensive property. We got held up leaving the harbour due to the Corsica ferry departing. They just added the extra time on at the end which was great. Fun trip, drinks available to buy and toilets on board.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip- the guide spoke excellent English: we are staying in Villefranche and wondered if it was worth going around the bay there, but it looked quite different from the sea and the gossip on who owned which villa was very entertaining. Recommend.

Trans Cote d"Azur is a one hour boat cruise of bay was included in our French Riviera Pass. It was very warm in Nice and cool breeze on boat was very welcome. Beautiful scenery the hour passed quickly. Would take the cruise again.

This was an hour boat trip from Nice round to the Bay of Villefranche-sur-mer. It was really enjoyable with a good commentary in French and English.

I took the hour long coastal tour with Trans Cote D'Azur and enjoyed it. The tour takes you to the next bay, for fantastic views of the yachts and Villefranche. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He pointed out several of the famous villas on the surrounding hills, which I wouldn't have known about otherwise. This tour was... More

Our tour began in Nice 9am on a Saturday , scenic stops at Ile Saint-Marguerite-Cannes. About a 3 hour trip. I would recommend a Saturday or possibly a Tuesday to experience the lively outdoor market. And do enjoy a long lunch with an ice cold St-Tropez blonde...bier :-) You will have plenty of time to meet the ferry. Totally worth... More

We had a super time on the one hour tour of the bays and it was a highlight of our holiday. We telephoned in the morning to book onto the 15:00 tour and everything was fine. The boat was busy but we got fabulous views from the benches on the back. The staff were informative and friendly and the commentary... More
