Wonderful day despite some of the challenging windy weather. Our guide showed us around and then gave us considerable time on our own to look around and explore. Eze was a wonderful hill top village with much to see and enjoy. Then we got a chance to have wonderful views of Monaco which remain with us. Monte Carlo was good to have seen and I only lost 5 euros , but we were glad that more time was spent in Monaco. Our guide was a great navigator and fun to be with.
Spent most of our time on our own. Dropped us off twice to walk around. Having a cane, I chose this tour because it was suppose to be in a coach. Driver spoke mostly about the wealthy there with their luxury cars and the Grand Prix. I understand all about that, but it was far too hot to walk the streets with my cane. Then we finished up by going to a perfume factory. My wife is allergic to most perfumes, so neither one of us attended. And his broken English was difficult to understand since he didn't have a microphone.
Robin was wonderful: professional, knowledgeable and pleasant! Time in Monaco and Eze was lovely and enjoyable time well spent.Skip the tacky tourist perfume factory. It felt like a ‘forced’ stop or a Tupperware Party where you’re expected to buy.
The trip was decent. Tour guide was knowledgeable about random historian facts on the drive to a Eze and Monaco. However, big discrepancy in time in Monaco from where they drop you off on the first stop where the kings palace was (3.5 hours) vs the actual country or Monaco down the hill which they only allocate (45 min) for. Not enough time to do anything- would have loved a more even time share to accommodate interests of all customers.
