There are three kinds of people: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of us have to p** on the electric fence.
My Recommendation Tip
I was picked up from my hotel by the charming Jean-Jacques. As an English, female, solo traveller, I was a little wary of spending an hour in a fast car with a French man. However I was instantly made to feel secure. I was told how the car works and then we drove around Monaco. JJ was informative and interesting - I had a personal guided tour and history of Monaco and the surrounding areas, as well as the fun of being constantly photographed and filmed as we drove. I opted to be a passenger rather than driver as I wanted to enjoy the luxury of being driven whilst being able to take in the views above Monaco - and for me it was the right decision.
JJ was a very safe driver, always ensuring that I felt ok, yet wanting to make sure that I had the and quot;Ferrari and quot; experience when the roads were clear and he could put his foot down - a thrilling feeling with the wind rushing through your hair and the sound of the engine...You could almost be in a Bond film...
The venture is an hour long total fantasy, something you will never forget, and if you are lucky enough to have a driver as knowledgeable and charming as JJ then you will definitely have a great time! Come on ladies, have the ride of your life!
I was a little nervous about taking this trip - lone woman, fast car, French guy, bendy roads... I needn't have worried. My driver JJ was a gentleman from start to finish. He took care to make sure that I felt safe, whilst injecting just the right amount of thrill when possible out of Monaco town. He is very knowledgeable about Monaco so that I had a guided tour and a history lesson as well as the amusement of being photographed by passing tourists - unsure whether it was the car they were interested in or whether they thought I was someone famous! I recommend this experience for anyone, but in particular for solo female travellers looking for something fun to do, in good company and a safe pair of hands. The driver even picks you up and drops you back at the hotel. The views of Monaco are fantastic and you get the opportunity to go up into the hillside towns. There is plenty of opportunity for photographs. All in all a fun, unforgettable experience with an excellent driver and tour guide! :)
