Beautiful landscapes of French riviera. A comprehensive tour. Not to be missed the Jardin exotique of Eze, at the top of the village, there is an entrance ticket of 6 euros, but the view you get from there, is worth it. If you love art, in Antibes there is Picasso museum, a beautiful collection in a castle. For art lovers a must see.

Great value for the price! Our group was so fun. Only thing I was was that there was fresh water or a snack that came with it as the sun and swimming is tiring. Other than that the staff was incrediebly kind and patient. Would recommend to all!! Thanks Team!
