What You Can Expect

Monaco Shore Excursion: Small-Group Monaco and Eze Day Trip

See what the principality of Monaco has to offer on your full-day shore excursion

After your ship arrives in the port of Monaco, begin your full-day shore excursion when you meet your guide for pickup at the cruise terminal. Climb aboard a comfortable 8-person minibus and begin the drive up into the hills over the Mediterranean Sea.


The roads leading up to Eze, a Medieval hilltop town, offer great views – and the views get even better when you finally reach Eze. Poke around in the village's many small shops and galleries. Go on a guided tour of the Fragonard perfumery to learn about the art and science involved in making high-end scents.


Drive back down the hills toward Monaco, passing the charming town of La Turbie on the way. It's often called the 'Terrace of Monaco,' and it's home to an ancient Roman ruin called the Trophy of the Alps (Trophée des Alpes) that was built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century BC.


Back in Monaco, join your guide on a sightseeing tour of the principality's top attractions. For such a small country – the second-smallest on earth – it's packed with luxury. Admire grand hotels, chic shops and the many multi-million dollar yachts that float in the harbor.


Witness the Changing of the Guard in front of the Prince's Palace (Palais Princier) and explore the surrounding area of Monaco-Ville (sometimes called 'The Rock,' or 'Le Rocher') on your own. Take a break here for lunch (own expense). Visit the Oceanographic Museum (own expense) or the graves of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier in the Monaco Cathedral (Saint Nicholas Cathedral).


Drive along the road that serves as the Formula One Grand Prix racing circuit before stopping in Casino Square for a stroll. Check out the opulent casinos and gorgeous surroundings. After your visit to Casino Square, you're returned to the cruise terminal and your tour comes to an end.

My family and I had such a wonderful time with our tour guide and the group. We had a total of 7 people in the mini van which made the tour more personal and intimate. Great attitude coupled with excellent customer service makes this tour a must-do in my opinion.

Although the tour was billed as a small group, it ended up a private tour which was a bonus! Our driver was knowledgeable and helpful. We were dropped off at various locations and told what time and where to meet him. Most of the day was spent on our own.

Morganne was wonderful! Right there when we got off the boat and whisked us away to Eze, France. I could have spent all day there, it was amazing! We stopped and took pictures at a beautiful spot that overlooked the city and Med a scene from To Catch a Thief. She got us to the castle in time to see the changing of the guards at noon, took us the the casino and Hotel de Paris and drove us around the roads that the Formula One race is on. A wonderful day!

This was a fabulous tour ! Our guide was so nice and accommodating. It ended being a private tour for as because the other tourist departed early. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly but gave us enough time to ourselves to enjoy. I might skip the perfume factory tour as it seemed like a money grab to me.

It seems small group but they have combined two excursions: half day day trip. This does not work because they had to deliver to the hotels people that would do half day. Eze is a dream of a place. We had 1 hour at the Fragonard Parfumerie Factory and 1 hour to see Eze no comments.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2017

This tour was the worst of all the ones we booked. I'll just provide a list. I'll be disappointed if we don't get some kind of partial refund!
1. Virtually ZERO commentary. We'd just pull up to a stop and be given some time to look around without even knowing where we were!
2. We were dropped off at the top of a hill where there was a church in Monaco for 3 hours!!! 3 hours!!!! We had to go buy train sightseeing tickets just to leave that hill to be able to ride past the normal Monte Carlo attractions like the shopping, Grand Prix area and the Casino. I can't believe that garbage. Why in the world would they stop there... a 20 minute stop at most and not drop us off where everything else was. After that 3 hour stop, that was IT. We were on our way back to the port.
This tour was a complete joke. We paid for 6 spots in the van and considered that money down the drain. Needless to say our driver's tips were spent to buy those train tickets so we could actually get to see the Monte Carlo area.
Very disappointing. Find a different tour.
My name is Kemp Cunningham from Granger, IN if that helps.
