What You Can Expect

Cannes Shore Excursion: Small-Group French Riviera in One Day Tour

Explore Monaco on your French Riviera in One Day Tour

Although one could easily spend months exploring the delights of the French Riviera, this full-day shore excursion hits on the highlights so you can maximize your day at port. Meet your knowledgeable local guide at the cruise terminal in Cannes in the morning, and set off in an 8-passenger minivan.

Begin with a drive by Cannes’ most famous attraction, the Festival Palace where the world’s best filmmakers and biggest stars gather each year for the Cannes International Film Festival. Continue along the scenic coastal roads of the Côte d'Azur, soaking up spectacular views of luxury villas and the Mediterranean Sea.

Stop at Antibes, an old port town that’s home to one of the Riviera’s largest marinas. It’s a contrast of history and modernity, where a medieval hilltop fortress stands sentinel over a fleet of luxury yachts docked at Billionaire's Quay.

After lunch at a local café in the charming Provençal village of St-Paul-de-Vence (own expense), journey on to the hilltop town of Eze. Admire some of the best views of the Mediterranean around, and tour the renowned Fragonard perfumery to discover what makes a truly fine French eau de cologne. 

Drive past La Turbie, known as the ‘Terrace of Monaco,’ before crossing the border into the second-smallest country in the world. Take a walking tour of this principality that’s small in size but big on glamour, where you’ll see highlights like the Prince’s Palace, luxuriant gardens and the famed casinos of Monte Carlo. You’ll even take a spin along part of the Formula One Grand Prix race circuit.

Relax on the scenic return drive to Cannes, where your tour concludes with drop-off at the cruise terminal in the evening.

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Perfect perfect perfect, the views were spectacular. The tour only takes 8 which is great so your not having to deal with 30 or 40 people when a decision has to be made. We didn't have time to see the perfume factory which nobody really cared about anyways. Monaco in my opinion was the highlight of the tour a place not to be missed if you haven't been. We were picked up right at the port which was awesome.

Outstanding. Everything was perfect, from the guide to the sights. She left nothing out and treated us like family. There were six of us in our group and the guide spoke perfect English, was very friendly, and even took us off of the beaten path to show us about the real scenes behind the main street scenes. I highly recommend this tour if you go. Everything was delivered as promised.

Our driver was excellent. Sadly even though I asked and was assured we'd get to Monaco in the afternoon it didn't happen. Others in my tour group all made it into the city. I will say that the alternative destinations were fabulous and our guide was worried about traffic on race day, which at the time was a legitimate concern. So while we were disappointed about Monaco it didn't take away from the day and the sites we saw.


4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Our driver/guide, Olivier, was excellent. He picked us up on time, was very knowledgeable, made frequent stops, and was very flexible with our itinerary. One small issue is that the people in the back of the van had difficulty hearing his commentary during the drive. Also, the day we were in Monaco the casino didn't open until 2pm not sure if that is the case every day. In any event, you probably won't be able to see the casino and get back to the port on time for departure.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

It was horrible. I emailed guide to tell when we would arrive on the pier. He comes early and does not wait for us to arrive. We did not get to go Monaco and had to pay extra for a hop-on hop-off excursion. I would not recommend to anyone. A one rating is too much.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

This was the worst tour of our 3-1/2 weeks in Europe. Alex, our guide, began the tour 45 minutes late. He completely skipped the perfume factory. He scratched the front bumper of his van and then loudly cursed He gave us very little information about what we were seeing and frequently dropped us off and then picked us up with little direction. He was rushed and angry most of the day and a very dangerous driver.
