Absolutely Amazing Tour. Adreiana, our guide, was very knowledgeable, funny and easy to talk to. She picked us up on time and right at the port we were docked at. We enjoyed Eze but loved Monaco - one of the most beautiful cities we've ever seen. Next time I go to Europe, I will definitely be booking with Viator.

This was a fantastic day out. Pierre from the local tour company was our driver for the day and was brilliant and met us at the Cannes port at 0800 - he had great knowledge of the area and history and interacted well with our 3 children also who thought he was wonderful. The Mercedes Van was beautiful and clean with cold aircon on a very hot day. He took us from Cannes through to Nice where we stopped at some lovely gardens of a Monastery and an old Roman arena ruins. He then took us to two amazing spots looking out over Nice and the coast! From here we went to Eze which is a must - and old medieval village on top of the mountains - again breathe taking views. Pierre then asked if we would like to go to the perfumery which we did and was lovely - a quick tour and then some sales. From there onto Monaco for lunch and wander and we then took a tour around the Monaco grand prix track. We stopped for 30mins at the square where the Casino is then made our way back. Was a wonderful day - and Pierre was an excellent host!

Our guide, Joe, picked us up from the cruise port and toured our family including 2 kids - son 13, daughter 11 to Monaco and Eze. Joe was extremely knowledgable, and even kept the kids interested. Eze is a picturesque mountain village - almost like a fairy tale land. It's a neat place to wander around, take in some beautiful views, and maybe grab a bite to eat. Monaco is filled with sights to see - beautiful hotels, massive yachts, the Formula One Lap, Monte Carlo Casino, etc. It was a terrific day of touring.

Excellent tour. Adrienne was our guide, and very respectful of our wants and desires. Timing was perfect for this tour, as Cannes Film Festival was setting up, and Adrienne took us on a lap of the race course in Monaco, as preparations were in place for that event as well.

Excellent guide, knowledgeable, flexible, and made inquiries about what we wanted to do and see. He
provided us with individual exploration time and at the same time kept to a schedule.
A clean comfortable car made combined with a knowledgeable guide made for a meaningful on shore experience.

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.

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!
