The tour was really good as we were able to see many different places along the French Riviera all in one day. We visited Cannes, Antibes, Eze, Saint Paul De Vence & Monaco in addition to having a tour round a perfume factory. Our guide Xavier was very good and was really informative and kept the trip fun. My only negative would be to suggest that if the Cannes film festival & Monaco F1 race is on is to be perhaps run different tours than the one I did as many roads are closed off meaning you are unable to see Cannes & Monaco properly as it is chaos on these places on this weekend. Despite this - our guide Xavier did a good job to find ways round and still show us amazing things, he really tried hard to ensure we still saw everything and is a great guide !

Nathan was an exceptional host. We were Picked up at our hotel promptly and he kept everything running smoothly and on time. Lots of fun and a great personality as well as very knowledgeable and helpful. He even taught us a little French! Loved his spirit and he made you feel like you had known him for a long time. We were lucky enough to enjoy our excursion when the film festival and Grand Prix were in full force And we were happy that we were able to still visit and even be dropped off at the red carpet as well as see from a vantage point the trials on Friday. One of our best excursions. D and A

Xavier was a wonderful guide, taking us through Cannes even as barricades for the film festival made it difficult, driving us on the route of the Monaco Grand Prix in addition to the usual tour sites. The day was long but we had a jovial group. It turns out that Xavier is a singer and we encouraged him to play his audio and even a video of his singing during the drive to the different towns.

Wow this was an amazing experience. Mr Antonio went above and beyond to show us so many beautiful places. I will highly recommend this tour

Great tour, our tour guide Raphael was very informative and helpful, truly enjoyed every bit of the tour.
