Tour was okay
Kristin_H

The places to see were nice. It just wasn't the tour we all we expecting. Our tour guide was quiet and would not answer questions if we had any. We all wished to be in the other van. The description also states that your guide accompanies you. However, we were just dropped off in each town with no guide to tell us anything about the town. This was our first time in the French Riviera and we were looking to see towns, but also see what makes the towns great and we weren't told anything. Our group got together and all found it to be very confusing. We were all nervous to get lost with the short period of time we had at some of the places. The places were amazing to see, however, the tour itself was not what we were expecting and confusing.

Our guide Thibaull was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and adapted to each persons needs. This is the way to see lots of cities and attractions in one day! Eze castle had beautiful views and showed what it was like to live in medieval times! Monaco and Monte Carlo were impressive and driving the Grand Prix track...Wow! It was a wonderful day overall! Best lunch we’ve had all week in Cannes. Thank you so much.

We visited wonderful places with the most stunning views. However, we felt that the Viator guide/driver could have done a better job. Instead of just dropping us off at the locations he should have accompanied us and explained the historical and other important details of the place. It seemed like he just chauffeured us around. We were left to wander about on our own. Not just at one place but everywhere. We understand there were parking issues but Viator needs to organize and plan better. Also on such a hot day we were not offered a bottle of water until we asked for it. The price of the tour mentioned that water was included!

Horrible experience touring French Riviera
Arindam_M

This was the most horrible experience ever! I am giving one star because I have to for completing the review. To start, there were no professional guides. There was just a driver, a horrible, unprofessional, extremely rude, absolutely ridiculously bad driver. His name is Chu. I hope no one ever gets him as a driver. All of us were glad that we made it back alive! There were 6 of us to start with in the party. Our family of three and 2 other ladies and one gentleman. For some unknown reason, the driver changed the entire plan and instead of starting with Monaco, he started with Cannes. The reason he gave was that the traffic from Monaco is better in the evening. One of the two ladies had a plan to take a train from Cannes in the evening but because of his change of plan, she had to change her plan and get a train ticket back from Nice. She got the tickets for the last train available for the day. We all went with his plan as we thought he knows better than all of us being a local. Soon as he started the drive, he was just completely unprofessional. Chaotic driving, unwilling to listen to any of our requests. One of us asked him for the bottle of water promised as part of the tour. He replied that there were no water and he is unable to stop as it will delay his plans. He said he will stop at a supermarket later so she can pick up water, that never happened. He then gave us hot bottles of water during the end of the tour which meant he had water all along in his car. One of the ladies got lost in one of the villages. Luckily the other lady had her number and got in touch with her with directions etc. Rather than being sympathetic of her ordeal, Chu started shouting at her, ridiculing her for getting lost in a small village while she is able to roam around the world and that she has a phone but not capable of using her navigation on the phone. The next encounter was when one of the ladies requested him for putting French music as we were in France and she wanted to enjoy the drive with some local music. Of course Chu misbehaved and ridiculed her for not listening to English music and her lack of taste of music. She then got frustrated and opened the window a little to let fresh air in, Chu of course didn’t let her and closed the window without letting her know from his side of the window controls! It just got intolerable after a point. He then got us stuck in a massive traffic jam, is of course all his reasons of starting the tour in Cannes was a lie. He somehow made it on time for the lady to catch her train as we held on to our breadths when he drove through the highway in extreme high speeds, breaking all possible laws and giving everyone an anxiety attack! Overall, this was a waste of time for all of us, I think some people might even have gotten a medical condition after that drive and we thought we should have just stayed back on the beach! If possible, do another tour and if you do, stay away from Chu, there is no way the positive ratings are when he drove people around!

Mixed experience
Tigran_Y
, Jul 2022
While the trip is of a great value that allows to see all the highlights Cote d'Azur has to offer, there are couple of concerns. Firstly, we booked English speaking tour, as we were getting picked up, we learned that our guide is sick so there's only Spanish speaking lady who we had real trouble communicating. It's an unacceptable practice, frankly and we should have been offered another English speaking guide. That has not happened. Secondly, each stop in the itinerary gives you 20-40 mins of free time, which is an absolute minimum. Instead, we ended up spending more that an hour in the fragrance museum, aka tourist trap selling perfumes and hand made soap. That was not even in the itinerary.

We had an amazing day. This was by far the best way to experience the French Riveria towns. The transport was fully air conditioned, we felt we had plenty of time in every place, our guide was fantastic. Highly recommend.

It’s a LOT crammed in to one day. At times it felt very rushed. I wish we had more time in Eze or Monaco (I could have skipped Cannes entirely), but overall it was very pleasant. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

We had NO GUIDE FOR THE TOUR, Therefore NO dialogue, historical input from a guide. It HAD the potential of being wonderful. No narrative; we had to improvise. We should be reimbursed for the tour. It was expensive

The tour crammed too many...
Irma_K
, Jul 2022
The tour crammed too many cities in one day and way too much time was spent at the perfume factory taking away time from visiting other beautiful cities. Getting in and out the van was super tiring. There was no time for lunch. We were promised two hours at St. Paul de Vance, one of the most beautiful cities to visit with time for lunch but we ended up spending only 40 minutes there which did not give us time to see the city and have lunch. We did see some beautiful towns but it was super rushed with no time to eat. Better to include fewer towns and completely take the visit to the perfume factory out of this itinerary. This could really be an enjoyable, fun and less tiring day trip considering all the above factors.

A Lousy Waste of Money
Eric_S
, Jul 2022
In what was supposed to be a great tour of the French Riviera, it ended up being little more than a crowded taxi ride. The van arrived 35 minutes late at the hotel. This, after we were notified the night before to be ready 45 minutes earlier than originally planned. The driver did not speak English and the driver was a really bad driver. When we gathered with another group, their driver did a minimal explanation of the day's events, never introduced himself and barely explained the situation. Our driver was bad - stalled the van 2 or 3 times, drove too fast and seemed like she was in a rush. We are talking a narrow mountainous road that she just zoomed up as we fought being car sick. There was no "tour". It was a glorified cab ride. At Monaco we decided to leave the tour and do sight seeing on our own. I almost asked for half of my money back. This "tour" is not what you see represented on Viator. I suspect that the original tour leaders were booked and we got the B or C team. They are not good at their job. The idea of the tour is great, the execution is terrible.

Rushed tour
Christine_H

This was a good, private tour. It was a bit too rushed for me (less than half an hour in most spots) so we opted to leave the tour early and take the train back to Nice. Great for small families. We were in a small van with a family of three. Tour guide Benjamin was so kind and knowledgeable of the area.

Wonderful experience in the French Riviera
Prinolan_P

Great trip to see all the main cities in the French Riviera. Our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating and gave us enough time to explore each area. Monaco was particularly interesting especially the casino area. And to end off the trip at the top of Nice was amazing. Very greatful for such a great trip and host.
