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.

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.
Our tour guide Reno was awesome! He showed us a lot of neat places. He took us in the heart of Monte Carlo, amazing! He was very knowledgeable about the area.

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

A very enjoyable tour with just eight of us and our wonderful and informative driver. I totally enjoyed each place we visited.
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
