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.
Absolutely Amazing Tour. Adreiana, our guide, was very knowledgeable, funny and easy to talk to. She picked us up on time and right at the port we were docked at. We enjoyed Eze but loved Monaco - one of the most beautiful cities we've ever seen. Next time I go to Europe, I will definitely be booking with Viator.
This was a fantastic day out. Pierre from the local tour company was our driver for the day and was brilliant and met us at the Cannes port at 0800 - he had great knowledge of the area and history and interacted well with our 3 children also who thought he was wonderful. The Mercedes Van was beautiful and clean with cold aircon on a very hot day. He took us from Cannes through to Nice where we stopped at some lovely gardens of a Monastery and an old Roman arena ruins. He then took us to two amazing spots looking out over Nice and the coast! From here we went to Eze which is a must - and old medieval village on top of the mountains - again breathe taking views. Pierre then asked if we would like to go to the perfumery which we did and was lovely - a quick tour and then some sales. From there onto Monaco for lunch and wander and we then took a tour around the Monaco grand prix track. We stopped for 30mins at the square where the Casino is then made our way back. Was a wonderful day - and Pierre was an excellent host!
Our guide, Joe, picked us up from the cruise port and toured our family including 2 kids - son 13, daughter 11 to Monaco and Eze. Joe was extremely knowledgable, and even kept the kids interested. Eze is a picturesque mountain village - almost like a fairy tale land. It's a neat place to wander around, take in some beautiful views, and maybe grab a bite to eat. Monaco is filled with sights to see - beautiful hotels, massive yachts, the Formula One Lap, Monte Carlo Casino, etc. It was a terrific day of touring.
Excellent tour. Adrienne was our guide, and very respectful of our wants and desires. Timing was perfect for this tour, as Cannes Film Festival was setting up, and Adrienne took us on a lap of the race course in Monaco, as preparations were in place for that event as well.
Excellent guide, knowledgeable, flexible, and made inquiries about what we wanted to do and see. He
provided us with individual exploration time and at the same time kept to a schedule.
A clean comfortable car made combined with a knowledgeable guide made for a meaningful on shore experience.

Manuel our tour guide was fantastic. Perfect English, masters degreed teacher doing tours in the summer. He worked with us on where to go, what to see and how much time we wanted to spend. Our other tours were through our cruise line which were enjoyable with competent guides. But this Viator was a better value and Manuel was just great. He said Viator did a pretty good job of screening local tour companies.

This was my first overseas trip and Mediterranean cruise, so I wasn't sure if I should use the cruise line's excursions or an outside tour company. A friend recommended Viator. I chose Viator for 3 out of 4 of my shore excursions, and I'm so glad I did! Every driver was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the different areas. One of the things I liked best was that we were able to adjust the itinerary to our liking. For the Cannes Shore Excursion we had Adrienne who was wonderful! After we all introduced ourselves she asked what we would like to see and do. She took us to all the places we wanted to see -- the beautiful coast of Eze, Monacco, and Monte Carlo. As we drove along the highway and coastline, she talked about the area we were passing through. She knew a lot about the history of the area! She took us to each place we requested, suggested what we could do and see, then she told us where she would be waiting for us when we were all finished. She even had umbrellas for us when it started raining in Monte Carlo! There were five people in my party - including two 18-year old girls, and we all enjoyed having Adrienne as our private tour driver for the day in Cannes. I highly recommend Viator for any tour or transfers!
The guides were wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable.We got to customize our route , benefits of a private tour.
Great clean car, dedicated guide got soaked with us the rain and never lost enfacis in us seen as much as posible, will use again.
Our guide Rolf was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. He adapted the tour to our requests (a drive past the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival and a lap around the Formula 1 course in Monaco). He also stopped at scenic overlooks which we could never have discovered on our own. He still managed to fit in everything that was in the tour description and got us back to the cruise ship with time to spare. The van was new and comfortable. This excursion was our favourite of the week-long Mediterranean cruise.
Our driver guide was amazing for this tour. She was informative, fun, interesting, and very considerate of our group. We learnt so much from her throughout the entire day. I would recommend this tour to everybody!
Joe was our guide and he was terrific. His knowledge was excellent and he was very flexible. Would recommend him to anyone. We went to Nice, Eze and Monaco. Would recommend.
Our private day tour was "AWESOME"! Our driver "Carolin" was so accommodating and personable. She took us to all these little hidden places along the coastline and it made for an extraordinary day. My husband and I enjoyed our coffee and croissant in Antabes, our tour through the perfumery(very educational) and the drive to Monaco was breathtaking. We really enjoyed how our driver gave us time alone on our stops which made for a romantic memorable day. Monaco was beautiful and we had lunch on the street our driver referred "supreme" to say the least. We "RECOMMEND" this tour highly if you really want to get the true essence of the "French Rivera". We would do this again and request for the same tour guide.
A really nice tour. The French Riveria is beautiful and the rides along the countryside were wonderful. A trip to Monaco/Monte Carlo made it totally worth it. The little town of Monaco was picture perfect and the Casino in Monte Carlo is exactly as you expect (waiting for James Bond to appear). Our driver took us to a little ancient village called Eze which was quaint, but I probably could have done without it (really nothing to do there and the small shops and restaurants were really expensive). Also, Eze village is all uphill walking and stairs (not for the elderly, handicapped or out of shape folks). Still, really loved the tour and the driver was outstanding.
This was a fantastic tour! We had such a great time seeing Cannes, Eze, Nice and Monaco. Andreas, our tour guide, was excellent. He explained everything along the way and made good suggestions. People on our cruise couldn't believe we saw and did so many things in such little time. I definitely recommend this excursion!
We had the most amazing tour. It was faboulous. Our guide was the best tour guide. She was very professional but yet so friendly. She knew the best places to take us. Even making reservations for our lunch at a wonderful restaurant. We are still talking about the view. We took too long shopping and made her next tour late, but she never complained about it. We felt terrible about this. We will definitely use Viator again.
