    Ralph was a tremendous tour guide and incredibly knowledgeable on all points, especially regarding the principality of Monaco (feats of engineering, current businesses, history, etc.). He was a joy to be around and the car was very nice, as well. I had misunderstood the tour to include a boatride along the coast up to Monaco, and then being driven back down to Villefranche-sur-Mer because the description reads "After leaving your ship...". But I just learned that this tour is intended for those who are deboarding a large cruise ship to come on land for an excursion. I feel like a fool for not knowing this was a driving tour, but wish it was clearly stated. Though my husband and I were upset to learn that there was no boat trip, Ralph's lovely demeanor and knowledge of the area quickly perked us up. Thanks so much, Ralph!

Absolutely amazing tour. Our guide was super friendly and made sure we had a wonderful experience. The wine tasting was our favorite, but the stops at Grasse and 2 small villages along the way were a cherry on top! It was a day full of lovely experiences and we would highly recommend this tour.

We had a group of 9 and it was perfect for zipping around to the tour stops. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, enthused about the history he was sharing and helpful! Would recommend this if you want to see alot in one day!

The tour guide was great, very personable. The places we went were amazing. If I do it again I will do the whole day version though. Regardless, it was a great time.

Very nice experience. We laugh a lot. We didn t find all the places in the map...but...we had a very good time.
