What You Can Expect

Monaco and Eze Small Group Half-Day Trip from Nice

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Meet your guide outside your central Nice hotel with complimentary pickup and climb into a comfortable minivan for your half-day tour of Eze and Monaco. Leave Nice with a drive along the Mediterranean, admiring the coastal views on your way up into the hills, with occasional photo-op stops before arriving in Eze.

Medieval Eze sits on a hilltop overlooking the coast, and is replete with charming shops to explore. It's also home to a famous perfumery, which you'll visit on a guided tour.

From Eze, drive from France across the border to the Principality of Monaco. Enjoy some free time in the Old Town of Monte Carlo, where you can watch the changing of the guard, visit the Royal Palace (open to visitors June-October) or check out the Cousteau Oceanographic Museum (additional cost).

Climb back into the minivan for a lap of Monaco's Formula One Grand Prix racing circuit before another stop at Casino Square, where you'll have more free time to browse the chic shops, do some high-end people-watching or take in the views of luxury yachts in the harbor.

The return trip to Nice is along the Lower Corniche road, from which you'll enjoy still more beautiful views from Monaco back to Nice, including the town and citadel of Villefranche.

With a minivan that carries only eight passengers, your tour group size is limited, ensuring plenty of personalized attention from your English-speaking guide.

The half day tour to Monaco was excellent.Joe our guide was adorable and knowledgable.EZe was a lovely side trip.Wonderful hill town we were given plenty of time to explore.
I absolutely loved Monaco and plan to revisit. The tour gave us time to explore. The palace was not open to visitors this time of year but a great city to walkabout.
We stay on after the tour and visited the oceanographic museum which was amazing and took the 100 bus back to Nice.Very easy.1 euro 50

The trip was very informative, the village of eze was magnificent we could have spent all day there alone. The visit o Monaco and Monte Carlo was fantastic, beautiful views all the way. Only one compliant, 8 is too many in such a small van, my wife and I were very uncomfortable 0. I think six would be better and charge a little bit more

Pierre, the driver, was great! He was very knowledgeable and made all of the important stop. Gave us time to linger and checkout the spots. He pointed out places of interest, pointed out places for a quick bite, and ensured us there was plenty of time for pictures. Overall, made me a true believer of short and full-day trips.

We really really enjoyed this half day tour. Our lovely tour guide, Caroline, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She stopped off at a couple of scenic outlooks for photo ops before arriving at the village of Eze. This was a delightful little village to explore. Be sure to visit the very first shop just inside the entrance where the old guy inside hand carves beautiful items out of native olive wood. The second stop was the Fragonard Perfumery. I didn't expect to particularly enjoy this portion but was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed learning about how the oils are extracted and the differences between fragrance sprays. Our final stop was Monaco which is very much worth visiting for a couple of hours. We spent most of our time in the district of Monaco Ville touring the church where Grace Kelly is buried and seeing the Prince's Palace. We would have loved time to visit the museum of oceanography, but this tour didn't allow us the time for all of it. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our visit to this pristine area. We made a quick stop in Monte Carlo to see the casino and take a gander at all of the luxury cars will driving the Grand Prix track. While I don't envision re-visiting this beautiful little country, it is definitely worth the trip to check it off your list! Highly recommend this trip!
