Manuel our tour guide was fantastic. Perfect English, masters degreed teacher doing tours in the summer. He worked with us on where to go, what to see and how much time we wanted to spend. Our other tours were through our cruise line which were enjoyable with competent guides. But this Viator was a better value and Manuel was just great. He said Viator did a pretty good job of screening local tour companies.
Great clean car, dedicated guide got soaked with us the rain and never lost enfacis in us seen as much as posible, will use again.
The guides were wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable.We got to customize our route , benefits of a private tour.
Our tour guide met us at the port and gave us a wonderful tour of Cannes....the city of the famous film festival. She spoke English with a French accent but was understandable. The perfume factory in Grasse was a great tour in itself. All in all a great tour. Cheaper than than what the cruise line offered. Also, we had an eight year old. Everything with the cruise included a 2 hour stay at the casino in Monaco.
This was my first overseas trip and Mediterranean cruise, so I wasn't sure if I should use the cruise line's excursions or an outside tour company. A friend recommended Viator. I chose Viator for 3 out of 4 of my shore excursions, and I'm so glad I did! Every driver was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the different areas. One of the things I liked best was that we were able to adjust the itinerary to our liking. For the Cannes Shore Excursion we had Adrienne who was wonderful! After we all introduced ourselves she asked what we would like to see and do. She took us to all the places we wanted to see -- the beautiful coast of Eze, Monacco, and Monte Carlo. As we drove along the highway and coastline, she talked about the area we were passing through. She knew a lot about the history of the area! She took us to each place we requested, suggested what we could do and see, then she told us where she would be waiting for us when we were all finished. She even had umbrellas for us when it started raining in Monte Carlo! There were five people in my party - including two 18-year old girls, and we all enjoyed having Adrienne as our private tour driver for the day in Cannes. I highly recommend Viator for any tour or transfers!
We booked this tour for 3 couples during a cruise and were met as arranged after the ship docked. Our trip to Grasse was wonderful and informative and some of us purchased perfumes and after shave lotions. The Film Festival Palace gave us an idea of what happens during the Cannes film festive and the actors' handprints interesting. Our guide explained the reason for it being held in Cannes. Overall a great tour and our guide was lovely.
Our guide Rolf was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He adapted the tour to our requests (a drive past the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival and a lap around the Formula 1 course in Monaco). He also stopped at scenic overlooks which we could never have discovered on our own. He still managed to fit in everything that was in the tour description and got us back to the cruise ship with time to spare. The van was new and comfortable. This excursion was our favourite of the week-long Mediterranean cruise.
fantastic day, great guide, expensive for just the 3 of us but if you fill the 8 seater mini van well worth it.
Our driver guide was amazing for this tour. She was informative, fun, interesting, and very considerate of our group. We learnt so much from her throughout the entire day. I would recommend this tour to everybody!
Great day trip. Eze was very quaint, with the tiny allyways and unique boutique shops. The views were beautiful. The perfumery was worth a visit and loved the fragrances, though they don't last all day. The guide, Victor, was very informative and took us to see Monaco from above, what a sight. Dissapointed we didn't have enough time to see the Palace but saw most on offer. Well organised, Great tour guide and very helpfull Viator staff when booking. Money well spent.
Joe was our guide and he was terrific. His knowledge was excellent and he was very flexible. Would recommend him to anyone. We went to Nice, Eze and Monaco. Would recommend.
Our guide was wonderful. This was a fun, informative day. Our guide was adorable, and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed spending the day with her. We would have liked to know how to get into the more interesting part of Monte Carlo, to pay an entry fee, before we were dropped off there. We would have done that, otherwise it was just a tourist trap. We learned all about Monaco, the history and gossip. It was great fun.
We really enjoyed this excursion... the views of the French Riviera were breathtaking. Monacco and the Monte Carlo casino were stunning !
Driver was informative. Favorite stop was Eze, the medival village and perfumery.
Our private day tour was "AWESOME"! Our driver "Carolin" was so accommodating and personable. She took us to all these little hidden places along the coastline and it made for an extraordinary day. My husband and I enjoyed our coffee and croissant in Antabes, our tour through the perfumery(very educational) and the drive to Monaco was breathtaking. We really enjoyed how our driver gave us time alone on our stops which made for a romantic memorable day. Monaco was beautiful and we had lunch on the street our driver referred "supreme" to say the least. We "RECOMMEND" this tour highly if you really want to get the true essence of the "French Rivera". We would do this again and request for the same tour guide.
A really nice tour. The French Riveria is beautiful and the rides along the countryside were wonderful. A trip to Monaco/Monte Carlo made it totally worth it. The little town of Monaco was picture perfect and the Casino in Monte Carlo is exactly as you expect (waiting for James Bond to appear). Our driver took us to a little ancient village called Eze which was quaint, but I probably could have done without it (really nothing to do there and the small shops and restaurants were really expensive). Also, Eze village is all uphill walking and stairs (not for the elderly, handicapped or out of shape folks). Still, really loved the tour and the driver was outstanding.
