Nice was very nice with this tour.
Larry H

We were picked up on time with a very knowledgeable young lady in a small van and 4 other riders in Monaco. We were then driven through the country-side and some other communities to Nice, where we toured for several hours. We stopped occasionally for pictures or free time to explore churches and markets on our own. It was an enjoyable time and our tour guide (from Nice) was very personable and informative. When we returned to Monaco, she took time to show us some additional sites that we hadn't seen in an earlier tour before dropping us at our convenient destination when we were through. I highly recommend this tour for other visitors to see this neighboring city.

Our Tour Guide was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable. Due to traffic problems and time being an issue, we did not quite complete our tour. This was not our guides fault. I felt she was given too many people to cope with on this tour, especially with seating and the group of 4 people not being able to decide on what their preferences were. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!!

I was very lucky to be the only traveler for this tour. My guide was incredible! She knew so much history, not only about Nice, but also about other towns and districts in the South of France. I learned so much about the area, and she always made sure there was plenty of time to take pictures and really experience the sights. Top notch tour!
