Spend a memorable day at port discovering the highlights of Cannes and some of the most charming villages of the French Riviera. Meet your local guide at the cruise terminal in Cannes, and set off in a luxury 8-person minivan. 

Begin with a drive down the shoreline Boulevard de la Croisette to see a slice of daily life in Cannes and admire its gorgeous beaches and hotels. Walk in the footsteps of the world’s biggest film stars with a visit to the Festival Palace, where the Cannes International Film Festival is held each year.

Head out of town along spectacular coastal roads toward your next stop of Antibes. Wander around the quaint cobblestone streets of this hilltop village while your guide shares its history, and ogle jaw-dropping yachts harbored at Billionaire’s Quay. 

Drive slightly inland through the Provençal countryside to visit the quaint medieval town of St-Paul-de-Vence, one of the area’s oldest settlements. Explore the charming lanes, cafés, and galleries and see why the village is known as an inspiration for many of France’s Impressionist painters and contemporary artists. 

Relax on the short return drive to Cannes, where your tour concludes back at the cruise terminal.

Cannes shore excursion: Small Group Cannes, Antibes, and St.Paul de Vence tour
, Nov 2019
MARC was FANTASTIC. He catered our tour to our wants and needs. Our ship was delayed and our tendering late but he was smiling and waiting patiently. Full of past and current information and history, MARC from Livin it UP tour company provided a most memorable, individual, and unique experience for a well-travel experienced and physically challenged tourist!
Good Tour
, Nov 2019
This was an excellent tour with driver/guide (Chen) a very happy person willing to assist wherever possible. We were concerned about getting on the tour as our ship had issues with tender process and while we docked at 10am we did not get ashore until just before pick up time of 2pm. Chen was prepared to wait noting we had issues and we had to wait for some of the people. Price was about half the ships cost and with a small group we saw more and had more interaction. Highly recommend.

Jenna our tour guide was awesome! She explained everything in beautiful English and was very knowledgeable about the history and places of interest.
Wonderful tour!

My sister and I took this tour while on a Norwegian Cruise . We easily located our guide, Jairo, at the port . We were pleasantly surprised to find only 2 others joining us so it made for a very personal tour . Jairo was very personable and very knowledgeable of the area . We learned so much information. Out stops were all wonderful and we got sufficient time to explore the area we were in. Jairo always pointed out points of interest and suggested things to see and try on our stops . He efficiently used the time we had and had us back at port at the expected time. We would highly recommend Viator and this tour in particular !
Informative Tour in France

Our tour guide/driver Xavier was very knowledgeable about history of the places we visited. I highly recommended him if you're touring near Cannes, France.
Great tour
, Jul 2019
We had the wonderful tour with Maria. She was great! Maria was very informative and very nice. The tour began in Cannes, and we went from there to St. Paul De Vences, and then to Antibes. Both were very beautiful and interesting. Maria then drove us back to Cannes along the coast and the scenery was spectacular. It was a great afternoon and a great guide.

Our tour guide's name was sabi, I believe we were a group of 7 people, it was from 8-2 p tour , this lady initally she said as she left cannes she will give us more time as we come back we stopped at the Cannes beach for 10 mins then she drove us around in her car of course telling us a little info or intro to the place, then the whole time we just sat in the car & just looked outside and moreover she rushed and said that she has a pick up at 2 so she dropped us at the port, she just briefly halted at the Red carpet area in CANNES. this trip was big Rip off compared to all the other tours that I booked, when asked to stop for pics , her answer was negative.
Cannes Shore Excursion

Good experience altho not much going on as they were setting up for the upcoming film festival. Tour was interesting and relaxing.
Lovely Tour
, Jul 2018
We truly enjoyed our shore excursion. Cannes, Antibes and especially St Paul de Vence were beautiful. The main problem is we really didn’t have enough time to experience the quaint medieval artist town of Saint Paul. If we were to do this again I think we would take a tour just to Saint Paul de Vence. There is just so much to see and appreciate there our quick little trip didn’t give us enough time for anything more than a quick run through. We bought lunch in Cannes and walked about the town, it was very nice. I would cut Antibes out to spend more time in the other two parts of the tour.
St Paul de Vence was spectacular.... and so was the ride along the coast to Antibes
, Jul 2018
We've been a few times in Cannes so the option to see some of the surrounding places like Antibes and St Paul de Vence was the attraction. We had a nice driver who served as a guide; he provided good information but wasn't talking too much. You know how it can be a bit annoying if the guides go on and on…this was not the case. The drive from Cannes to Antibes was along the sea which was nice. We stopped in Antibes for a stroll and an ice cream - a must in the summer time. After that we left the sea and headed to Provence; the green hills were beautiful. We ended in St Paul de Vence which is perched on the top of a rock mountain with spectacular views of the Alps and the sea. We had 45-50 min to walk around and have a beer to cool down. All in all the venture was worth the time spent so bon voyage and enjoy!
