based on 24 reviews

It was a way of seeing so many places all in one day. The day was long but a good one. If you are taking this tour, wear very comfortable shoes, and be ready for stairs and inclines. Be prepared for a long wait at a restaurant for lunch. That said, it was picturesque and well worth it. Our guide was a very friendly guy who made us feel comfortable.

We had an excellent guide from Cameroon who’s name sounded like Perfect. He was very knowledgeable and made us feel very included. We would highly recommend a trip with him.

The cruise were delayed and the guide kindly waited for us an accommodate the time so we could complete the tour. We are very thankful for that.

Great way to see Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze for the first time
