Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Cruise to Monaco. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The only disappointing part is that 6 hours is not enough to spend in Monaco. There's plenty to do and see there. The boat trip itself is also great, going pretty close to the marvelous coastline.
Super tour along the coast. The boat stops at Port De Fontvielle harbour, not the main harbour in Monaco, so you do have to walk into the centre from this port.
Great boat trip and amazing views .Staff were very friendly and the onboard drinks were also reasonably price .well worth doing .would do it all over again
The tour was excellent. We didnt expect a guided tour on the way so that was pleasant surprise. One of the crew member, William, was an excellent guide and told us a lot about the towns and the villas on the way.
The day was excellent and made all the better by the crew.
Great tour. Really enjoyed the fast boat. The commentary was fun. Ran on time. Bit of a bun fight to get on the boat.
The crew were all characters and as well as offering reasonably priced refreshments on board, they also provided an impromtu commentary on various highlights along the coast! This was an unexpected extra and really made the trip more enjoyable and memorable! It was something a little different which we have never tried before but would definitely do again. Coming in to the harbour/port at Monaco felt very grand and there was a shopping mall with a famous Fast Food Restaurant there as well which was a nice surprise.
We would recommend it as a way of getting to Monaco, and advise anyone taking any of the boat trips to make sure they arrive in plenty of time... a lady at the ticket window in front of us was a minute or so late for her trip to St Tropez, and could only stand and watch as her boat sailed past us all. To be fair, they do stress the importance of being on time, so take heed. Also if you suffer from sea-sickness make sure you take the appropriate tablets as the sea can be surprisingly choppy, especially as there are lots of very fast boats/yachts on the sea.
Will definitely do it again when we go to Nice in the future, as it was one of the highlights of our stay!!!!!!!
A great way to travel to Monaco, very freindly crew and a really knowledgeable (and funny) guide during the trip. The boat arrived / left on time each journey, very clean with a nice selection of refreshments.
This cruise to Monaco and back was pure enjoyment. the crew were fantastic - so friendly - and the day spent in Monaco without having to worry about parking charges etc. was wonderful.
The Captain continually gave out information about all the tings we were seeing on the coastline and the photo opportunities were excellent.
If you stay in Nice at all, book this cruise if you can because the whole day - cruise and Monaco - was excellent. Highly recommended.
Friendly crew on board with drinks available too and we had a good 6 hours to ourselves in Monaco to explore. Recommended great day out as an alternative enjoyable way to travel between Nice and Monaco with a guided tour both ways, pointing out places of interest including holiday homes of the stars
WOW we loved this cruise down to Monaco. It was so relaxing and easy to find. It made our day in Monaco extra special and a few wines on the trip home watching the scenery was fabulous! Enjoyed the captains commentary also. What a marvellous city, I wound do this again!!
My husband and I were on our honeymoon to France from Washington DC with a one day excursion to Monaco. We easily found the loading dock where the boat was and everyone was very friendly. The boat was clean, the men who worked on the ship/sailed us to Monaco were super nice. They told us about the different places we were passing and the view was incredible. We purchased wine on the boat on the way back and enjoyed more tourist info about the different buildings and structures we passed as we sailed. The whole experience was very wonderful. I highly recommend adding this to your schedule if you can instead of taking a bus or train.
Loved the unique perspective, loved the mate's commentary on the coast , towns, houses, yachts, etc.
Great tour. Guide was well versed on the area. Cruise was on time at both ends of the day. great way to get to Monaco and spend the day. Drops you off in the harbor right in the center of the city. Well done.
This is a must if you want to see the lavish town of Monaco, the boat trip was fantastic really great a bit of rain which added to the experience. The captain was very informative and on the way home gave a very very good commentary about the different homes and people who lived in them.
Excellent , Thelma was fantastic ,great at getting strangers to chat and loads of useful information
I was so excited when my husband told me we were going to Monaco by boat instead of bus. We got to the port and climbed aboard at 9.30. We went to the upper tier of the boat and got brilliant seats. The captain and his mate were funny and kept us all amused the whole way there and back pointing out the homes of the rich and famous and giving us a history lesson along the Cote D'Azur. This was 1 of my best experiences EVER in the South of France(and we go 4/5 times a year). The trip there was great but the trip home was fantastic, we sat on the back lower tier on the way home and felt as if we were returning to Nice on a speed boat. Ever sight was from a different angle, Eze castle on the hill, Casino and Palace in Monte Carlo from the water. It was a wonderful experience and not to be missed. Loved it!!!
Just be careful if you go on the upper deck that you sit in front of the stairs as everyone from the lower deck stands in front of you to take photographs and get there early as the French have no concept of queuing.
Great to see the coastline because we always took the train to Monaco. great narration on ferry.
Fantastic route and way to get to monaco A little cruise around the bays on the return journey. Wonderful. Easy to find start and return journey points. Tour bus point is conveniently parked to take passengers around Provence. Money well spent. Jan
the trip was very nice and the explanation of the captain interesting, also the fact that the boat stopt in front of monaco, we could hear details what we were seeing, the trip was on time on both ways.
Simple, well organised pleasant little outing. Allowing us a day in Monaco as tourists with our own agenda. Very easy to follow the Captains instructions and plenty of time to head back to the Vessel. Thank you..
