Planning Your Visit

  • Sun protection

    Due to its sunny location on the Mediterranean, it's vital to be sensible when it comes to sun protection.

  • Restaurants

    To save money on food in this stomping ground of the rich and famous, go beyond the bustling Antibes Street where you will find some cheaper dining options.

  • Day trips

    If you can't get enough of the swanky lifestyle, it's easy to get to the principality of Monaco by car or even by boat.

  • Stay safe

    Unfortunately, where there's money, there's bound to be crime. Don't flash your cash, and dress casual unless the occasion calls for it.

This is a must do trio one should go for. We liked St Paul de Vence the most in our trip. But unfortunately the red carpet was not accessible on that for general people as an exhibition was going on that day. But overall a trip to remember. Our guide was also very nice and friendly. Thanks a lot.

If you wish to see the places you have dream of going to, book this tour. The bonus is the surprise, places that you've never heard (if you're not from the EU) but will captivate your imagination. EZE and St Paul de Vence took our breath away. It is pack but well planned!

Our driver guide was knowledgeable and helpful. We covered everything promissed when booking. Everything we visited was breathtaking. It's the perfect way of visiting as many placed in a small time.

Very knowledgeable guide with the perfect amount of time for an introduction to the region.

Full day, fabulous sights. The French Riviera is spectacular
