from Suisse Hotel in Nice to Monta Carlo port Hercules
Ask at your hotel ( the day before preferably) if they can arrange a taxi or a private car company. From my experience it will cost about 90-100 euros
At least someone who does not steal the contributors time with this "please" babble and other dispensable affability... ;)
Adequate reply would have been:

Although if you say 's'il vous plait' to the bus driver of the 100 bus (every 15 minutes) you can do it for 1.5 euro.
How would you advise walking to the bus 100 stop ( near Garibaldi )? I'm afraid I'll get lost going through the Old Town area. Or is there a better stop to board? If I opt for the train, eastbound, does it leave from Nice- Ville or the SNCC Gare de Ville? Thank you in advance; I learn so much from this board.
there is also a stop at the port which you could walk to but it will be busy so you might not get a seat
The stations you mention are one and the same - the main rail station in Nice (Nice Ville) in Avenue Thiers. SNCF is the same as 'French Railways.
No need to walk through the old town to get anywhere in Nice. You don't tell us your starting point but from the seafront following the tram lines north will take you to Place Garibaldi.
Thank you for your information. I also am staying at Hotel Suisse and will be taking the bus 81 or 100 to Cap Ferrat. Probably train to Monaco and to Antibes. If I follow the Promenade how do I get to the tram lines to follow them north to the bus stop? I walk slowly with a cane; should I allow about 30 minutes?
In that case I suggest you turn right out of the Suisse, then right again after about 400 yards into Rue Raoul Bosio. Keep straight ahead for about another 200 yards and you will arrive at stop Veille Ville of the tram line. Two stops will take you to Garibaldi in about two minutes. The first time I bought a ticket I did not find it easy but the locals are usually helpful to the elderly or physically challenged. They will also usually give you a seat on the bus, which is vital at busy times. Bus 100 in particular is usually crammed between 9.00 and 11.00am or so. The 81 is not usually quite so bad but has fewer seats.
That seems simple enough. Thanks for the directions.
