Ben is amazing and we had an awesome day with him! He picked us up in Cannes from our hotel. Started our trip with a stop in the beautiful seaside village called Eze and walked up to the top of Jardin Exotique d’Eze for a breath taking view of the town while taking in the cute shops and luscious garden along the way. If you can, stop at one of the quaint delis in on your trek to the top for a quick bite to take in the beautiful scenery - we did and it was so real. Monaco & Monte Carlo we’re also amazing! Got to see the transformation of Monaco into the annual Grand Prix Formula One event, plus took a drive around the track. Monaco is so picturesque. Visited Monte Carlo but didn’t go all the way into casino area because we wanted to enjoy the sun and outside activities. This is a MUST BOOK tour. We ended up booking the full day tour because it was so much fun. Will book again when we go back to Monaco. Thank you for a memorable time Ben.

very good course. Our guide had the very good idea to leave us place Masséna. This allowed us to be at the center of Nice's interests. We would surely have missed a lot of things without it. Thanks Rainer
