We had a fantastic experience and I can not praise our guide, Robin, enough! He sets a very high standard for excellence. He was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, personable, and enthusiastic about sharing his love and expertise for the area. He was thoughtful, helpful and friendly to all passengers. His driving skills are unparalleled! On a rather happily coincidental note, Robin was the same guide I was fortunate to have in Nice when I was here five years ago. His enthusiasm then added to my desire to return and stay for 2 months. I had taken a picture of him when he jokingly put my hat on while in Grasse, five years ago. He was delighted to see the picture and in San Remo he bought himself another hat just so we could retake another picture!

We had a wonderful time doing the full day tour to the Italian Riviera. I was a little nervous about this particular tour since there weren't a lot of reviews on it but it was amazing. Catherine was our guide and she was so knowledgeable and knew right where to take us. She was very informative about local things as well and where to go. Our two kids ages 9 and 11 came on the tour and they also loved it. Do not hesitate to book this. The markets are a lot of fun but there is also time to try the food, see churches, etc.

Knowledgeable guide, beutiful views

Our guide picked us up on time at our hotel. He was knowledgeable of the area and made several brief stops for scenic photo opportunities and to explain more about the area on our way to the final destination. Once in the Italian Riviera he gave a brief overview of the city and there was then ample time to take in the sights, stroll the market and have a leisurely lunch before returning to our hotel on time with a brief stop in Menton. The vehicle was clean and appropriately sized for our group.

This trip exceeds all expectations, in one hour our tour guide took us to several panoramic views not usually visited by tourists. Stops made in San remo, Ventimiglia, me ton with

Fabulous full day tour of the Italian Riviera and two wonderful towns.
