Monte Carlo, Eze and La Turbie
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.

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.

Our trip was good. Our tour guide was already at the pier when we got off the boat. She was very knowledgeable and we were with one other family. There were 8 total people in an air conditioned comfortable van. We got to see alot in one day! it was beautiful!!
Had a wonderful tour with a guide who went beyond expectations. A very fun day, and much nicer than NCL tours that are a huge bus full of people.

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 was one of our favorite days on the Mediterranean cruise. The guide, Maui Anne, was friendly, spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about Monaco and surrounding area. We only went into the lobby of Monte Carlo. Our interest was Monaco. A very beautiful area in the Alps.
