What people are saying about Nice

This was a wonderful excursion from start to finish! The driver, Dennis was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He actually went above and beyond my expectations and because of cancellations, it ended up being a private tour. That didn’t disrupt the itinerary or discourage the him from offering helpful tips and suggestions for an audience of one. I highly recommend this company. Ample, independent time was allowed in St. Tropez (3hrs) and Port Grimaud (1hr). I tried the Dior cafe for the experience. Food was amazing! Tried the famous Ladureé macaroons. TBH, I’ve had better. Of an assortment of 12, I found only 1 very good (Tea) and rated my usual fav, Pistachio a 7 because of a weird aftertaste and most others were not to my liking. Packaging and service both great. The market was also great! Best strawberries I think I’ve had. Next up, Port Grimaud. I felt adventurous and rented the electric boat. It was fun and highly recommended. The gelato near the exit was also yummy!

Issa ? Guide was really good. She was very informative and helpful. Unfortunately it was raining but we made the most of it. Eze was neat to see but due to rain - most was closed. Views were OK due to rain but I can def see how awesome it would be if no rain. We were taken to Monaco after and dropped off at certain various points. Had plenty of free time and time to gamble at Monte Carlo casino- which was a great experience to see and do there. Obviously- much much cheaper to take train there and do own thing still. But we did private tour to take the planning and thinking out of this tour.

It was very interesting and informative. We got to see areas that we never thought we would. Even to the pitch side and into the hospitality suites. We thought we had booked a tour in English, but didn't expect there to be different languages. This made it more difficult for the guide as she had to explain everything 3 times. All in all she was excellent.

Great tour and the museum was brilliant. The temporary exhibition on woman in sports was really interesting. We travelled to the stadium by tram. Excellent way to get there. Thanks for a good afternoon.

Great value for our money, we got to see a lot. Our guide Sabine was very sweet. Also, very good at parking and driving in the narrow streets and traffic, glad we had her to get us to these places!
