What people are saying about Antibes
We arrived in Nice on the Friday and with plans to visit Monaco the week after, booked the tour as a way to explore all the best the French Riviera had to offer. The tour was sensational and we were really glad that we had the tour on the day after arriving in Nice, making it much easier to know the pinpoints of interest and history behind where we were travelling to next. The tour really was a jam packed day to cover the best of the French Riviera! Our tour guide picked us up on time at 8.30. The tour began with an introduction to Nice then travelled to Monaco for the morning. The brief introduction prior to heading to our next stop was always informative! Whilst there definitely was a lot of destinations to cover in the trip (25,000 steps!), the guide gave us a reasonable amount of time to sightsee each stop (30mins - hour) even if that had meant finishing the tour at a later time. Highlight was definitely Cannes, the Beverly Hills of France!
It’s a long day but a great way of seeing so many places in one go. You don’t have long (30mins or so) at each stop which can feel a bit rushed. It does mean that you get to see places where you might like to go back for longer. Guide was good; well organised, knowledgeable and helpful. Only one downside was the first trip to a perfume factory which was not on the itinerary and which was basically used to try to sell us all perfume. I guess the tour company gets some sort of kickback but I felt like we were being used and it was a waste of 45 minutes when we could have spent more time at other places. I wouldn’t not recommend the tour because of that, but just be ready!
The artist bought picassos work to life and enabled a greater understanding of his work giving a wonderful insight into the range of technique he used and the composition of his pieces. I now appreciate his work much more and see how innovative hisapproach was. The drawing exercise afterwards was very enjoyable and enabled one to try differing techniques to reflect the wonderful antibes environment. Would highly recommend this.
This tour was the highlight of our trip. A true local view of some great sites. Our guide Zara was amazing. Her insights and commentary were second to none. Also, her explanation and knowledge of the history of the various places we visited was on point. I cannot recommend this tour enough to everyone. We saw so much and it would have been impossible to cover it by ourselves in even 2 full days. Definitely a 5 star experience
If you can get a good driver who is enthusiastic this would be a great tour. We enjoyed the stops and the views but luckily I researched the places I would be before hand and knew what to expect. Driver gave overview of area but no details on any of the things to do or places to go and even skipped old town Nice.
