Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Day Trip to Monaco and Eze

If you want to see the best of the French Riviera, use your time in the port of Cannes wisely. A private day trip in a comfortable minivan to see both historic Eze and glitzy Monaco in one day combines two sides of the gorgeous South of France.

Depart Cannes and admire the stunning views as you travel along the coastal road toward Eze. This Medieval village is the home of famous perfumery Fragonard, where you’ll have a guided tour to learn the complexities of creating perfumes.

Next, head for the city-state of Monaco. Visit the Old Town and the Grand Casino and take a spin on the Formula One Grand Prix race car circuit. Enjoy some free time to visit the Royal Palace (open only April to October), do some shopping in the trendy boutiques or simply sit at a sidewalk cafe to engage in some of the best people-watching you’ll ever see.

At the conclusion of your time in Monaco, head back to Cannes and your cruise ship.

We were delayed due to the tender being delayed from the cruise ship. I was so worried about missing our excursion even though it was private. When I got there, our driver was waiting for us and was the NICEST guy ever! He asked us where we wanted to go, since it was our first time we had no idea. He took us to Nice, we went to a nice farmer's market there, then we went to Eze, where we visited a beautiful perfume shop, and then to Monaco and Montecarlo. Absolutely amazing! We got to see so, so much and enjoy! 100 recommended

Monaco was beautiful. Right off a picture postcard. Spotlessly clean, upscale, and impressive. On the circle drive in front of Monte Carlo saw ferraris, bentleys, lamborghinnis and rolls. Felt like an extra in an OO7 movie.

Once again, not disappointed by Viator! First and foremost, we ALWAYS had a great tour guide who not only was knowledgeable about the places we wanted to explore but also very cognizant about our time constraints as cruise vacationers with limited time on shore...
The vans that Viator tour provides are spacious and comfortable enough for our big 8 member family!
Despite the time constraints, we ALWAYS felt that we have been able to see all there is to enjoy in the places we chose to visit....

This tour is suited for a small group of 8 and luckily we were a family of 7 so it was our own private tour. Pierre was our guide and he was great! He was by far the best guide we had during our two week European vacation. He had an awesome sense of humor and was honest and helpful in recommending places and areas we should tour. He allowed us to customize our day and was supportive. We only wish we had more time at this port.

Loved this private tour. We were able to see the preparations for the film festival in Cannes. Monaco was amazing - our guide got us there and in a good location to see the changing of the guards at the palace. She drove us one lap on the Formula One Grand Prix track - very fun. Would have loved to have time to actually gamble a bit in Monte Carlo but we were there before it opened at 2pm and you need a passport to get in which we didn't know ahead of time. I had never heard of Eze but it was a favorite - loved climbing through the narrow walkways and discovering interesting shops and restaurants, along with a beautiful chapel. These private tours are the way to go skip the cruise ship tours - allows for complete flexibility and individual attention. Loved our guide.

Oh what an amazing excursion. Our guide was informative, fun and very attentive. She let us have more time at one place when we wanted to stay a bit longer. Don't miss out on Eze!!! The fortress that you could spend a week at. In fact my husband and I are planning a trip back to spend just there. Not recommended for the older folks though, lots of climbing elevated walkways and cobblestone steps. Cannes was pretty, but Eze made the tour.

Our day trip to Eze, Monaco, Monte Carlo was excellent, we had a private mercedes Van for a group of 7. Our driver guide Joe took excellent care in asking us what we wanted to see and do, accordingly he mapped out our day of excursion. He gave us a fair amount of historic background for each of the places we visited. Our short stop o visit a perfumery near EZE was excellent. Amazing perfumes at very reasonable cost. EZE was a trip to cherish, a beautiful ancient village. Our driver even indulged us with a stop and walk about in Cannes at the lim festival area. Plenty of great photo locations.
