Absolutely fantastic day for all of us. Our tour guide Sylvia was amazing, so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Journey through Nice up to a viewing point for photo opportunity. Then onto Eze. A most beautiful village on a hill, lots of little shops on the way up to the top where there is a chateaux. You have to pay extra to enter, 6€. We had just over an hour here which was plenty of time. Next to the perfumerie. This was very interesting and we are shown around the factory. Then to Monaco just in time to see the changing of the guard at the Palace. Lots of little streets with shops, bars and restaurants. Finally the part of the trip my husband was most excited about was onto Monte Carlo where the Monaco grand prix is held. Sylvia let him be in front of the minibus so he could see the circuit. Amazing to see something that is on TV. So many interesting facts given by Sylvia and she was able to answer every question that was given to her. A huge thank you for making the day so enjoyable.
I booked the day trip from Cannes and was picked up at my location without any worries. Our chauffeur Anthony was amazing. He was funny, polite and really helpful. We went via nice, spent the best part of the morning in Monaco and then went to eze. I'll be honest the perfume factory isn't everyone's cup of tea and it felt like the guides were peddling their products too much to tourists. I would have preffered the whole day in Monaco. But hey ho. It was a lovely day, nice views and lots of chances to take great pictures.
An absolutely amazing trip! So well organised from start to finish. Our guide (didn't catch his name!) was fantastic-so knowledgeable, friendly and good fun! Éze and the perfume factory were without a doubt the highlight! Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area!
First of all we headed to Eze, a very picturesque medieval village perched on the side of a cliff.
The town was busy setting up for its festival so there was a lot going on. Nice exotique gardens up on the top - quite a strenuous incline to get up there and a lot of steps - not good for those with mobility issues or young children. Nice little meandering streets, with lots of gift shops, art galleries, cafes etc.
Next we headed down to the Fragonard perfume factory. There was no production going on when we visited as it was a Saturday - guide was very good and explained the processes, then we had some time to sample the fragrances and other products.
Next stop was Monaco. We headed up to the rock first to see the Princes Palace, the Cathedral, the gardens etc and have some free time to wander the shops and have some lunch.
Then we headed down to Monte Carlo, and drove round the F1 track - was quite exciting to think about the races there!
We were dropped off near the Casino square and had a wander round some of the nerby streets, and went into the casino for a look around note there is a dress code if you are wanting to go into the gaming hall
Our guide for the day Nasir was great - pointed out lots of interesting things along the way and was very knowledgable about the area.
Good trip - definitely worth it!
Had a great day. Our guide and driver, Sylvia was friendly and informative. Would have liked a little more time in the old town of Eze but apart from that the day was wonderful. Only tip is to say we were a little late back due to traffic and it was quite tiring so don't arrange anything else for the evening.
LOVED this tour! Our tour guide was THE BEST. Eze and Monaco are beautiful, such a nice way to get some history, sites and PERFUME! Loved this, it rounded out my Euro trip with my sister just perfectly- highly recommend!
