    What an incredible day with such an amazing, friend, and informative guide! He took us everywhere and before we arrived would tell us interesting information about the place. We were 1 American (me), 2 French, 2 German, and 3 Spanish, and he navigated all of us perfectly--he translated everything into 3 languages...I bet he was exhausted by the end of the day. He was really helpful and kind. I think my favorite was Eze and the perfume factory because I wasn't expecting to like the perfume factory as much as I did, and Eze is simply magical. He gives you time to explore each place on your own, and I definitely recommend going to the Jardin Exotique in Eze. Monaco was also thrilling, as were all the views along the way. On top of everything, he is an outstanding driver!!! I wish I could have stayed longer to go on more tours with him!

    My family of 2 adults and 2 grown children took their tour with anthony while visiting Nice this week- and we are so glad we did. Anthony was exceedingly knowledgeable and personable. He made the day so enjoyable and tailored the trip towards our interests. During the drive from city to city he shared a wealth of local information. He also shared many suggestions for the remainder of our stay in Nice regarding things to do and places to eat. The city of Gordon was especially interesting and offered amazing views of the countryside as well as some unique shopping opportunities. I would highly recommend this tour and especially anthony! You will definitely not regret it.
