Monte Carlo, Eze and La Turbie
Departing from the cruise pier in Cannes with your driver / guide and a group of no more than eight, you will drive to the hilltop Medieval town of Eze, approximately 40 minutes away. During the drive, your driver / guide will point out what you are seeing. A stop will be made to take photos of this charming village clinging to the cliffside with magnificent views overlooking the French Riviera. There will also be approximately 30 minutes for those brave enough to make the climb.
A stop will be made to visit the nearby perfume factory, Fragonard, which has been producing scents for more than three generations.
A scenic drive will be taken through the hillside village of La Turbie, with its Trophy of the Alps and scenic landscape.
Then drive to the luxurious principality of Monaco, where you will drive directly to the old town and enjoy an exterior visit to the Royal Prince Palace before walking to the Cathedral, where you will have an interior visit. You will then drive to the Casino Square and make a brief stop for photos of the exterior of the casino and enjoy time to view the gardens. This will be followed with a drive along a portion of the Monte Carlo Grand Prix circuit before making the approximately one hour drive back to Cannes.

I can not say enough about this tour. Our guide was FANTASTIC. He was very knowledgeable about the entire area we were traveling through. He took us to Monte Carlo where we drove on the road where the race was going to take place that weekend. He stopped multiple times for photos.
Our tour guide was fabulous. He made the tour such fun. Eze was amazing. Loved it!

We enjoyed our tour of Monte Carlo, Eze and La Turbie. Definitely climb to the top of the mountain at Eze. What a view! Got to see Princess Grace and Prince Ranier's graves at Monaco. Beautiful city/state. Guide was knowledgeable.

Totally enjoyed the whole excursion start to finish. Guide was great and informative and saw a lot in a short period of time. The walking tour of Eze is tiring and physically challenging for elderly people but rewarding to those ending at the top. Monte Carlo was fabulous to see and experience.

Tour guide Jenna was at the port to pick us up with no problems. This was a small group, 8 of us. I highly recommend this particular tour to get a taste of the French countryside and Monte Carlo. You need to be able to walk well, some steep walks in Eze, but not a lot of walking involved.
