If you want to see the best of the French Riviera, use your time in the port of Cannes wisely. A private day trip in a comfortable minivan to see both historic Eze and glitzy Monaco in one day combines two sides of the gorgeous South of France.

Depart Cannes and admire the stunning views as you travel along the coastal road toward Eze. This Medieval village is the home of famous perfumery Fragonard, where you’ll have a guided tour to learn the complexities of creating perfumes.

Next, head for the city-state of Monaco. Visit the Old Town and the Grand Casino and take a spin on the Formula One Grand Prix race car circuit. Enjoy some free time to visit the Royal Palace (open only April to October), do some shopping in the trendy boutiques or simply sit at a sidewalk cafe to engage in some of the best people-watching you’ll ever see.

At the conclusion of your time in Monaco, head back to Cannes and your cruise ship.

First Class Experience in France and Monte Carlo
, Jun 2022
We were thrilled to meet our guide, Catherine, and to discover that our trip was indeed a private tour. Catherine was determined to give us the best experience, and she delivered! Being able to talk extensively throughout the day allowed us to learn as much as possible about the areas explored. Wish we could have taken Catherine with us as our guide throughout our vacation! Thank you Viator Don & Joyce

Dear Don & Joyce, Wow, what a great review! The team at Tour Azur are always happy when you are happy with your guide, and we shall of course pass your kind words on to Catherine. Sincerely, Tour Azur
Touring with a local!

Our driver, Robin, took us an incredible tour of Nice, Monaco and Eze. We adjusted a few things from the typical tour, and he made it all work for us. Robin is friendly, personable, safe, and so knowledgeable. He shared so many insights and stories about all the places we visited. He is very good at his craft. We wouldn’t hesitate to tour with him again.

The team at Tour Azur are very pleased to read your review, and know that your experience with us and Robin was so good. We'll pass your review on to Robin, thank you! Sincerely, Tour Azur
Our Private Day Trip in Monaco and Monte Carlo was Wonderful!!!
, Oct 2019
Best decision I made on our cruise was booking this day trip where we had control. I was traveling with my parents in their 80’s and our guide Giorgio was so wonderful that he made this our best tour of the trip. I could not have asked for a better guide as he went above and beyond to make our day so wonderful!! I will be booking more private days in the future because of Giorgio and this experience. I highly recommend this tour and ask for Giorgio, he's the best!!!! Thanks for a great day Viator!

We couldn’t be happier that Giorgio provided you with Cannes Shore Excursion : private Day Trip to Monaco and Eze. He is a true asset and we are lucky to have him on the TOUR AZUR’s team. Please come back to visit anytime! Warm regards
Terrific Tour
, Sep 2019
Francois (Frank), our driver/guide, met us at time and place stated in the reservation. The Mercedes mini-van was very comfortable for the four of us. As he drove he provided appropriate commentary. We made all the promised stops--including getting us to Monaco in time for the changing of guard. He answered every question we had and was more than capable as a driver. We requested that he return us to the port a little earlier than the scheduled time and Frank managed that. I have no hesitation in recommending this company and tour.

We really liked doing the private tours, we liked it just being our group, and we could decide if we wanted to change anything, or stay longer somewhere. Sylvia was very pleasant and enjoyable. We got to see the changing of the guard, we had plenty of time to shop and eat, went into Monte Carlo and explored. We did not get to Eze, we had to be back on our cruise ship earlier than expected. But that was fine, we had a great day!

We were delayed due to the tender being delayed from the cruise ship. I was so worried about missing our excursion even though it was private. When I got there, our driver was waiting for us and was the NICEST guy ever! He asked us where we wanted to go, since it was our first time we had no idea. He took us to Nice, we went to a nice farmer's market there, then we went to Eze, where we visited a beautiful perfume shop, and then to Monaco and Montecarlo. Absolutely amazing! We got to see so, so much and enjoy! 100 recommended

The trip to Monaco was amazing and the views were breath taking at Monte Carlo. I would definitely recommend this trip for anybody travelling to France. Our driver Matilda was informative and helpful but the problem was that she was in a rush to end our trip reason being that she had other errands to attend to, and that was a bit disappointing for us.

Monaco was beautiful. Right off a picture postcard. Spotlessly clean, upscale, and impressive. On the circle drive in front of Monte Carlo saw ferraris, bentleys, lamborghinnis and rolls. Felt like an extra in an OO7 movie.

Once again, not disappointed by Viator! First and foremost, we ALWAYS had a great tour guide who not only was knowledgeable about the places we wanted to explore but also very cognizant about our time constraints as cruise vacationers with limited time on shore... The vans that Viator tour provides are spacious and comfortable enough for our big 8 member family! Despite the time constraints, we ALWAYS felt that we have been able to see all there is to enjoy in the places we chose to visit....

This tour is suited for a small group of 8 and luckily we were a family of 7 so it was our own private tour. Pierre was our guide and he was great! He was by far the best guide we had during our two week European vacation. He had an awesome sense of humor and was honest and helpful in recommending places and areas we should tour. He allowed us to customize our day and was supportive. We only wish we had more time at this port.

Oh what an amazing excursion. Our guide was informative, fun and very attentive. She let us have more time at one place when we wanted to stay a bit longer. Don't miss out on Eze!!! The fortress that you could spend a week at. In fact my husband and I are planning a trip back to spend just there. Not recommended for the older folks though, lots of climbing elevated walkways and cobblestone steps. Cannes was pretty, but Eze made the tour.

Loved this private tour. We were able to see the preparations for the film festival in Cannes. Monaco was amazing - our guide got us there and in a good location to see the changing of the guards at the palace. She drove us one lap on the Formula One Grand Prix track - very fun. Would have loved to have time to actually gamble a bit in Monte Carlo but we were there before it opened at 2pm and you need a passport to get in which we didn't know ahead of time. I had never heard of Eze but it was a favorite - loved climbing through the narrow walkways and discovering interesting shops and restaurants, along with a beautiful chapel. These private tours are the way to go skip the cruise ship tours - allows for complete flexibility and individual attention. Loved our guide.

Our day trip to Eze, Monaco, Monte Carlo was excellent, we had a private mercedes Van for a group of 7. Our driver guide Joe took excellent care in asking us what we wanted to see and do, accordingly he mapped out our day of excursion. He gave us a fair amount of historic background for each of the places we visited. Our short stop o visit a perfumery near EZE was excellent. Amazing perfumes at very reasonable cost. EZE was a trip to cherish, a beautiful ancient village. Our driver even indulged us with a stop and walk about in Cannes at the lim festival area. Plenty of great photo locations.
