Great way to see all the important places near Nice but with not nearly enough time to do much at any of the locations. Very rushed. Would have loved to spend more time in a couple locations specifically but this is a good way to get an idea where you can take your next trip. Driver was very nice and knowledgeable. Our van this time was verrrrry warm which was uncomfortable.

We had a great day. Our driver/guide was excellent. I was afraid thay we will have less than 8 hours tour but at the end the tour lasted for nearly 10 hours. If you want to see all Cote d'azur in limited time, this tour is the best way.

Full day but lacks a bit more free time. A bit speedy. In the medieval village EZE where you had to go up by yourself, you have to plan a little more free time. Same for Saint Paul de Vence. Abdel the very nice driver-guide.

Samir was fantastic, on time, very knowledgeable and gave us time to visit each location.

Great Experience!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny!!
