Very good tour to cover Monte Carlo, Monaco castle and the breathtaking views at Monaco and Eze. Very good perfume - Fragonard, a bonus stop.

Our tour guide was punctual, pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. He constantly checked to see that we were having a good time. The van was comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Pre-COVID, we booked some trips in New Zealand through Shore Excursions Group and they were also wonderful. Given that we've had positive experiences in both New Zealand and France, our trust in Shore Excursions is even stronger.

We really enjoyed this tour. It is fairly fast paced as you get to see quite a bit but we thoroughly enjoyed it. My mom has wanted to see so many of these places for most of her life so for her to see them in person was worth every penny to me. The views were amazing and tour driver was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and friendly. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Great guide and driver for our small group tour
October 25, 2019
After meeting us at the port dock in Cannes, our driver who was also our guide pointed out many important facts about Cannes and the French Riviera during our drive to Eze, tgen on to Monaco. She was able to engage the fellow passengers on the tour during our travel time because of the small group. She is very knowledgeable about the area, having been born and raised nearby. The only criticism relates to crowding in the van used for the tour. Although the vehicle can accommodate 9 people, it would have been more comfortable with 6 passengers in the 2nd and third rows and the driver in the front row.

Do not look any further just book this tour you will not regret it!! It is amazing. The only thing I regret is not going to the top of Eze right away and then the line got too long so that would be my suggestion, the views are spectacular! Monte Carlo and Monaco were fun to explore... Definitely planning on going back soon. Karen A

This tour was a group tour, there were a total of 8 of us in a van, the driver (I forget her name ) was great very knowledgeable of the areas she brought us to the only downside to this was we went to a perfume factory and spent a lot of time there which unfortunately took away from our time in Monaco / Monte Carlo which were beautiful. In Monte Carlo we were able to go inside the casino and yes I did have shorts and a t-shirt on and sneakers and was allowed in. Overall was a great experience

On this tour, we started the day at a beautiful garden. And then went to a perfume factory. This portion of the trip was indoors. And it was amazing. We then took a drive to Monaco. Where we were able to access the country because our guide had a special license plate which allows you to get through. She dropped us off by the cathedral and we were able to walk the square up to the palace and get souvenirs. She then took us around the Grand Prix track and Through the yacht docks. Again I would suggest this as a private tour because you can elect to see things or skip things that are of less interest. The views were stunning throughout the day. Definitely recommend.

June 13, 2019
This was an excellent tour. The bad part first...received info from Shore Excursions saying not to be late or I'll be left behind. So I made sure we made the first shuttle from the ship. But then we had to wait as we were the only two there on time. Had to wait for the next shuttle and more passengers. Wish they wouldn't send messages they don't mean. However, after our late start, the tour was great. The guide was very informative, learned a lot about perfume, had great views, especially enjoyed riding the Grand Prix route the week before the event itself! I highly recommend this tour.

This shore excursion was awesome!! Our group only had a total of 8 people so it was very intimate. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The drive was absolutely gorgeous and the views were incredible. It would have been nice to have just a little bit more time at each of the 3 stops (maybe like 30 minutes more). Since we got to the ship with several hours to spare it could have easily been 90 minutes longer. Of the 7 excursions we had on our trip, this one was our favorite! Would definitely recommend.

Start to finish, the tour was well worth the money. It isn't just that the time spent was so much fun - tour of a perfumery, a walk through Eze, a delicious lunch with a gorgeous view of the French countryside, and then Monaco. It's just so gorgeous. But it was the quality and the depth with which the guides understood the culture, destinations, and caring they place into their work that made the day even more memorable. Excellent day!

Tour guide was late. I had purchased for three couples and none of us had a working phone. I asked another guide from same company who did not want to help but then called and told us he was coming but could not give us a time. A passenger picked up at a hotel was the issue. Tour was very good. It had good variety and let us see a lot in France in a short time. Our driver was nice and eager to make our trip good. He did work to manage the wayward passenger.

There was a big crash on the highway in the morning so we waited for a very long time at the meeting place for our driver. The other staff of the tour company called the company and kept us informed of when our guide would arrive. The traffic was bad, but our tour guide was very flexible in making changes to the tour to make sure we arrived at the port on time. She did her best based on the circumstances. We like that the group was small and we had wifi on the van.

We loved getting to see Monte Carlo; Eze was a really great bonus. Our tour guide was wonderful and willing to work with the group. If you have the same experience a couple of things to keep in mind -- Casino does not open until 2pm so plan accordingly, we did not get to go inside; be sure your tour guide takes you on the Formula One course (very cool and we are not race folks); needed more time in Eze so skip perfume factory.

This was a wonderful, informative, and beautiful experience. This was our second day with Shore Excursions and we love that these are done in such small groups. This group was my family of four and three sisters. We were all visiting from The US and on a shore excursion from a Norwegian Cruise. We did not book through the cruise line but on our own. This turned out to be the best decision. Our driver Sebastian was informative and courteous. He was gracious enough to take us on a little extra site seeing that my mom had hear heart set on. Not to mention he is very easy on the eyes. :)

Our guide Cecil was wonderful-we had a small group that made it more intimate and she was able to drop us off where larger buses couldn't access. Our van also had Monaco license plates so we were able to get dropped off and picked up with ease in Monte Carlo. The medieval city of Eze was amazing-we wish we had more time to explore-NOT a place for handicapped/strollers/elderly because it was a very QUICK look-see here. Monte Carlo is amazing and oozing with money. We drove the GranPrix course as well. The perfume factory was a waste of time and would have been better spent in Eze.
