Monaco and Eze Private Day Tour from Nice

Nice, France

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
The day started nicely with personalized pickup at the hotel that was the high point of the day!!. We drove to Eze. During the trip the driver did provide some interesting information about the sites we were going through, however got easily irritated when asked to repeat something his English wasnt the greatest and when he repeated did so with some sarcastic remarks. When we got to Eze, he just showed us a rather simplistic map of the area which is sculpted in a rock at the entrance of the village, and left us on our own. We did not get to find the places we wanted to visit there because there were no more maps. Then he drove up to Monaco and once again just left us there to tour on our own. I understand that independence is nice, but when you pay to have a "private guided tour" you expect that. This was a "private driver" who dropped you at the mentioned locations. There was no "guiding" whatsoever. Take the train in Nice and go up to Monaco and once there, get a Tour Bus. Much cheaper and a lot better. The worst experience of our whole trip!

Versailles Walking Tour with Optional Fountain Show

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Definitely worthwhile. The only criticism is that there should be time alloted for taking pictures of the garden FROM the palace, given that pictures taken at the garden level do not allow a fully detailed view of the beauty of these gardens. Otherwise fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable.

Paris City Tour with Seine River Cruise and Eiffel Tower Lunch

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Not worth to book a tour in advance. You had to have arrived at the bus at least an hour prior to the indicated time in order to have been able to get a seat on the top of the double decker bus. If you get a seat in the lower part of the bus you only get to appreciate a small part of the things that are on your side of the bus! Paris is a city filled with many monuments and architectural works, which you do not get to appreciate when you are on the lower deck of the bus and there are a bunch of heads on the other side of the bus for you to actually look at whatever the previously audio-tape guiding comment is talking about, which is of course also out of synch with what you are watching. Recommend to get to Paris, and while there, get a ticket to ride on one of the hop on - hop off tours on the double decker bus that is open on the top level. The river cruise was good. Lunch at the Eiffel tower - only worth it to say you did it - not worth the money.
