What people are saying about Cannes
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
Excellent guide added to an excellent trip. Highly recommended company and guide.
This is the way to see the French Riviera - with a knowledge guide/driver such as Laurent. It was informative, adjustable to meet our interests and relaxing.
Karolina was an outstanding guide and so talented. I would go on any trip with her again!
Excellent day and way to get a glimpse of the French Riviera. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and funny. We particularly enjoyed the breathtaking views. Highlights included the stop in Eze medieval village with its beautiful cactus garden and the stop in St. Paul de Vence with its many art galleries.
