Great fun day trip!!!!! Jose, was a great guide ! This man really deserves a big thumbs up. A top driver and walking encyclopedia. He gave our group of 7 a private tour. As a real Niçois, he really knows everything about the Nice/Monaco area. He will take you to the most beautiful places to take pictures. Drop you the closest for the visits to the villages. Gives tips on what to see and how to walk. Discussed how long you want to look around somewhere. Seen so much beauty of the area in one day. A private tour is cheaper and so much more personal. So are you with a group? Then you should definitely do that and hope that José is your guide.

A really great way to get a general idea of the surrounding cities and towns to possibly go back and do a specific place more if you want to. Our guide was lovely very accommodating and super knowledgeable. I would highly recommend using this company and I will definitely remember them for future excursions in other places i may travel to. Thank you for a fantastic day trip doing the French Riviera and Côte d’Azur.
