What people are saying about French Riviera

We went with 2 children aged 8 and 13. It was a super trip. Our guide was attentive and skilled in telling us what we saw. He was ready to help when our 13-year-old girl was burned by a fireman. Both children thought it was cool when there was speed and the boat took off over the waves. Recommend the trip.

Exceptional experience to do, a sea trip with strong sensations at times, a few breaks to be able to dive and relax on private beaches. The instructor, Alexandre is an instructor who has a good language with the participants, he is funny and very nice. I recommend this activity.

This was one of the highlights of our day trip into Cannes. Our guide Alex was great, knowledgeable and funny. We had two opportunities to swim/snorkel and covered a lot of beautiful coastline. Great time!

A really beautiful and exciting trip. I had my two children with me aged 7 and 10 and they loved it all.. especially when there was a good sound on the boat

We can definitely recommend the boat tour. An adventure with opportunities to swim and be amazed. Crystal clear water, great bays and extraordinary villas.
