The tour was relaxing and wonderful. We were the only ones on the tour so it was customized nicely to our needs and wants. Our tour guide was Manuel. Very knowledgable fella. Had ample amounts of time in the market and even stopped by a little restaurant on the beach which served very tasty pasta.
It was great. The market is huge. Went to Giuseppe's for lunch and had the best. Spaghetti pomadoro and then a scoop of chocolate gelato.
Had a great day with Adriana. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and accommodating. We learned about the area and the towns and she gave good descriptions of the things we should see in each town so we would get the most out of our time. Over all, a really lovely day!
We were the only two booked on to this tour and thank goodness it still went ahead, this an encouraging fact alone will make us choose viatour on other trips. Rolf our driver gave us a really good time and took us to a couple of places on the way back from San Remo which were on route but not sheduled stops but places we wished to see. The San Remo market and the town are worth the trip alone and the history and knowledge that Rolf shared with us made for an excellent day
Enjoyable day out to San remo and then sharing some of the history of France and Italy on the journey back stopping at Menton. Good tour to enjoy local produce and open air market.
We had a terrific time, despite the inclement weather. We saw the flowers that are used to make perfume, which was very interesting. The market in Italy was amazing and we did some great shopping. Then we had lunch at Guiseppe's which was great. My mother had sea bass which was some of the best fish ever. Overall a great day, and Maria, our tour guide, made it even better. We already knew her from another tour. We felt like we were with family. She was knowledgable, friendly, and helpful.
Really excellent tour. Courier was very friendly and informative. The only downside was
that, because we were the last to be picked-up, it meant I couldn't sit with my husband.
Great guide - Great market - Great day out. Plenty of time to look round the market , then on to the beautiful town of Menton with time to explore . Finally a slow drive back along the High Corniche stopping to take in the views of Monaco and Monte Carlo. My wife and i thoroughly enjoyed it .
The tour was fabulous!!! Best tour we had while in Europe. The Italian markets were a must see. Can't wait to go back!
Excellent. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made it extremely fun. There was so much to see. Great trip.
Loved the tour! Our driver was very nice. We were the only ones on the tour so it was very much customized for us. The driver was on time, we had a beautiful drive to Italy. The market was great. I wish I would have researched a little more...there was so much! Some of the items to look for are the men's leather belts for 5 euro's. They size them for you so if you know the size then you are in great shape. Also, lots of leather bags and shoes. Shoes were a little expensive but the leather bags were great. We had lunch at a cute restaurant over looking the water. The food was delicious. Our driver was, again, on time and got us set up for lunch quickly. We headed back to Nice with a stop in a small town in France, maybe Menton?? We weren't there very long so we just walked down the main street. (we were in Italy for over our time-which was great!) Had a great time and would definitely recommend it! It was me and my husband with our two daughters-14 and 16. They loved it!
Our guide, Sylvie, was tremendous - accommodating, friendly and obviously very passionate about her home region. The trip to San Remo was very fast and quite spectacular with great views of the Alps and the coast. Tip: In San Remo avoid the central markets and head into the side streets around the markets if you want to experience the real Italy (there are plenty of shops to keep any shoppers happy!). The drive back along the coast through Ventimigila and Menton is very beautiful and the highlight of the day for us was the drive up the Grand Corniche and the truly amazing views of Monaco and the coast from the top. There are also some great views of the hilltop village of Eze on the way back into Nice. All in all a great day trip and highly recommended.
A great day trip from Nice!! The guide was wonderful and informative and the group was small which was ideal. The markets in Sanremo are big and the surrounding area to the market is fun to explore. Lunch in Ventimiglia was good!! The guide recommended a few different restaurants and we were free to choose our own place to have lunch, the people in our group all went to different places. The views of Monaco were great and a stop in Menton allowed us to explore another pretty little town. Over all it was a great one day tour which didn't feel rushed. If you are on a limited time frame I'd highly recommend this tour as it gives you a great opportunity to see a lot of things in one day in this beautiful part of the world.
We were so lucky to have sunshine and blue skies to highlight palm trees and seaside homes along South of France shores during our drive with stops to and from the Italian Markets. We especially enjoyed climbing the hills of scenic town, Menton, and viewing other old villages from winding roadways, as well as cities of Nice and Monaco. The Mediteranean really is turquoise-blue! Our tour guide-driver, Ralph, was very knowledgable and accomodating.
