We booked this tour online from India itself and it was totally worth it.. We were picked up from our hotel dot on time by our delightful guide. She was well versed with the history and information to the places she took us to. It’s a good introduction/ glimpse of the Riviera, and advised to do it on arrival at Nice, so if you have time, go back to the place that catches your fancy. It was a hot day in July , not the best to be out in the sun , so our Mercedes van with the AC was very comfortable, making us lazy as well . The time we get at each destination is not enough to explore, but enough to get the vibe , feel and selfies . Our guide was happy to click us. Do carry some sandwiches/ bites, as there is not enough time to catch a meal and see the place . We chose to go back to Eze again on our own, as we only did Fragonard perfumery and had to head back to Nice to drop some back and pick some who joined in halfway. Recommend this tour

Ben (our guide) was truly excellent and very informative ! We had a brillant day. The tour is quite long but packed with things to see. I would recommend doing this tour as soon as you arrive in the Cote d'azur because it gives you an idea of the places you could want to explore a bit more. Then you could take the train from Nice and hop on to spend a bit more time in the places you liked on the tour. For each place, we had around 30 mn. Personally I thought this was ample time to have a look around. The mini bus has the aircon which is most welcome ! Top job for Ben and brilliant experience! Would recommend.

We had a great excursion! It was super well organized. Anthony was a great guide, he told us lots of interesting stories and shared a lot of information with us. the minivan excursion allows you to visit places not accessible by train or bus. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to visit the French Riviera but doesn't know where to start yet. My uncle and my aunt recommend this trip to friends and family and are very happy with the little attentions from Anthony.
