This sounded like a great tour, however it was a crammed and hurried expedition. Justin our tour guide was wonderful. Justin was knowledgeable and did the best he could, however we did not have enough time to see much. It was like a hop off hop on tour. We needed a day tour to EZE and St Paul Venice and Antibe The others Cannes, MonteCarlo and Monaco should be a separate day. We got a taste of each town but it only wet our appetite for more.
Justin was an excellent tour guide. This was a great way to see all of the major sites in one day. We only spent 3 days in Nice, so this was a great drive-thru experience for us, but if we had more time there, we would have loved to have split this tour into two days, there is just so much to see.
The tour itinerary itself is great. A lot to see in one day for sure but it's very do-able. This is such a beautiful area of France. Our tour guide tended to spend more time talking to those in the front of the small bus which was frustrating. They were only doing half day so perhaps he thought he should spend more time talking to them and it was in a different language than everyone else. Just a thought-tour guide really needs to include everyone especially if tour is going to be in 2 languages which is fine!-not complaining about that. Our driving/guide was a local person and had interesting stories. If you want to see a great amount of sites in one day-this is it. If not, pick a different tour. We were not on a cruise but definitely this is an option for cruisers who only have one day. Tour guide parks in great places so you get the most out of each site.
WOW! THis was the absolute best way to see basically ALL of the Cote D'Azur in one day. We had limited time in Nice and wanted to see as much as possible so this was perfect. Our group was small7 of us and we were in a nice van with a well imformed guide. I don't know how he knows all this information! We loved it.
Our tour guide, Salvatore, met us promptly at our hotel. The next stop for pickup was delayed due to inability to find the guests. The the last guests were across the street so no more delays. The first part of the tour was mostly driving through traffic and construction sites....didn't really see much. It certainly got better as the tour progressed. Everything was fine but not much time spent at each stop. The last stop of the day was Monaco. We were given an hour to return to the van. I will take most of the responsibility for what happened next. We walked a different route back to the van and spent 1-1/2 hours looking for the van. We could not retrace our steps back to where we were left off. We made several attempts to call the office to advise our guide we were lost but there was no answer. We called our hotel to report our being lost in case the guide would call the hotel. Several local people tried to help us retrace our steps without success. Our last resort was to take a bus back to our Nice hotel. We were concerned we had left personal belongs and purchases throughout the day in the van and would we get them back. Standing at our hotel desk, the guide appeared very upset saying he had waited 1 hour past the deadline he gave us and the other guests were very upset. We told him we looked 1-1/2 hours for him. He said he had no phone number to call us. I told him he didn't bother to give us any phone number to contact him....all I had was the office number which obviously closed at 6 PM or so. This could have all been avoided if guides would provide a business card with their cell number in the event of guests getting lost. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and sites visited until this all happened. Suggestion: Guides should hand out something with their cell number in the event of this type of incident. We had no other troubles until this last stop.
An absolutely wonderful taste of the Cote d'Azur. A highly knowledgeable, professional and attentive guide, he was fantastic! We were taken to wonderful viewpoints, told many historic and cultural facts, alongside recommendations of how to maximise our time at each stop. We saw so many places we never felt rushed. A comfortable and clean vehicle to travel with. This is the ideal trip to see the most in a short time, like us... or at the start of a longer holiday to decide where you would like to spend more time. It is a must, if you do one trip, make it this one.
Our tour guide, Justin, was wonderful and knowledgeable of the towns history. We really enjoyed the tour, the bus ride, the diverse group. I wish we had more time in Monaco and Cannes but then we went back and completed what we wanted to see with more time. I think it is wonderful as a preview to places to decide if you want to spend more time or if just a short visit is enough. We ended our tour in Saint Paul de Vence because we had reservations to stay there for a couple of days and the tour was very accommodating in doing so and offering to schedule a pick up later in the week.
