We enjoyed this cruise and found it a great way to enjoy the views along the coastline. It offered the perfect amount of time
to explore Monaco on our own. The captain and the guide were knowledgeable and accommodating. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because we had a difficult time hearing the tour guide. It could have been a result of us opting to sit in the back of the boat rather than inside or up above. I would recommend this cruise. What a great way to get to Monaco!
A wonderful day out. Scenery on both the boat trip to Monaco and in Monaco itself was spectacular. Seeing how the other half live with Ferraris etc driving around everywhere was fun and having the opportunity to just explore for ourselves once we got there was great. As Monaco is so small there was plenty of time to take it all in. Highly recommend getting the hop on hop off bus which leaves not far from where the boat arrives to take in all the sights.
Guide on the boat was very knowledgable in showing us all the houses of the rich and famous along the Riviera coastline on the way home.
Wasn't happy at all. Departed Nice on time. Commentary was on but we couldn't hear anything. Great views but still none the wiser as to who owned any houses, villas, palaces whatever. Arrived In Monaco within 45 mins. We were given our return time of 16:45 which gave us plenty of time in Monaco. Very confusing place. Very steep hills. Queues for hop on hop off tour were long. We allowed lots of time tor return to our departure point. But we were 30 mins late. Naturally the boat had returned to Nice. The harbours all look the same. A map should have been provided to each passenger, highlighting the departure harbour. We had to book a taxi to return to Nice. Not a happy traveller, waste of 80.
Loved the cruise. Commentary was great. Guide was so knowledgeable. Pointed out celebrities homes and gave us a great history about the area. Great price for a great way to visit Monaco. When you arrive in Monaco it's a little confusing on how to see the area. I suggest the bus tour where you can get on and off. Great way to learn about the area.
