What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip: The French Riviera from Nice by Minivan

Explore the best of the French Riviera on your private tour

Following a handy morning pickup from your hotel in Nice, meet your guide and hop into your private vehicle then set off to begin your French Riviera day trip. Home to medieval villages, tranquil coves, flashy casinos and the super yachts of the rich and famous, the Riviera is widely considered one of France’s must-see regions. With your private guide on hand to take you to the places you’d most like to visit, you can choose your day’s itinerary yourself!

Follow your guide through the medieval hilltop village of Èze and take in panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Discover the Fragonard perfumery, where master perfume-makers have been creating fine fragrances for generations, and gain insight into the complex processes involved.

In Monaco, take a spin along the city’s famous Formula One Grand Prix track in the comfort of your private vehicle, and explore the city’s beautiful Old Town. Try your hand in one of two of the town’s glamorous casinos — who knows, Lady Luck may even be smiling on you!

Next, head to Cannes and wander down Croisette Boulevard, where locals and visitors stroll by the sea in the sunshine. Peruse the boulevard’s luxury shops and boutiques, and stop outside the famous Film Festival Palace to see how many stars’ handprints you can recognize.

Continue along the coastal road to nearby Antibes and gain insight into this ancient coastal settlement from your guide. Soak up the atmosphere in the medieval Old Town and stop for a drink in the sunshine at Billionaires’ Quay (own expense), where luxury yachts bob gracefully on the water.

When it’s time to head back to Nice, hop back into your vehicle and settle in for the journey back to your hotel, where your private French Riviera day trip will come to an end.

Brilliant tour, our guide Carolyn was friendly and very knowledgable. Got to see so much more than if we'd one the tour on out own. The little 'un-discovered' things she pointed out made it even better!

Our guide/driver Caroliine was very knowledgeable and spoke great English. Her van was new and clean which was greatly appreciated. And she punctually arrived at our Hotel. Our only regret was that we were not able to walk around Monaco and visit the Palace, but Caroline pointed it from afar. Overall, the tour was a nice introduction to the French Riviera. We were greatly satisfied with the booking thru Viator.
