A great way to get an introduction to Monaco and nearby sites in France when time is limited. We had an interesting tour, and still had plenty of time in the afternoon for personal exploration of Nice.

Really lovely. I’ve been before on a similar trip. But was sharing with my friend. My goodness our rep went out of his way to stop for the best photo. And was so knowledgable. I learnt something new!

Great visit to Monaco via EZE and the visit to the FRAGONARD perfumery. Very competent and pleasant guide who knows the region perfectly. We recommend this minibus tour.

Excellent guide, tour a bit rushed I would have loved to spend more time in Eze, but sadly.. for the rest quite informative and leaves you wanting more

Our Tourguide Ms. Eva is sooooooo wonderful and very helpful with all information about the places. I highly reccommend her.❤️
