Our guide Rado was great!! He was friendly, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable about the region. We’re given interesting details about the history and geography of the Riviera as we travel along the coast. There are stopovers for panoramic photos and plenty of time to explore each town we visit. Monaco, Cannes, Antibes… I recommend picking the full-day tour to see the most of the region. 10/10 I’d absolutely go on a tour with Rado again. Thanks for the memorable day in the French Riviera!

The trip was very extensive; you can't help the traffic. Would have had less in the perfume factory, but wouldn't have rushed me so much in Eze. :( Big thanks to Paffe our driver and who knew everything about Cote d azur .. until far after Napoleon.

If you have limited time and want to cover French Riviera in a day, give this tour a go! Tour guide is friendly and funny!

Magnificent experience especially thanks to the kindness and availability of Mr Perfect

The guide is knowledgeable and friendly. Everything’s on time.
