Karolina was a very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating guide. She had extensive knowledge of each visited place and told us interesting stories. Although my French was limited, she spoke slowly in French so that I could pick it up and when I couldn’t, she switched to English. My French improved after the tour. The places selected were amazing. I enjoyed Antibes (Antibes), Cannes, Saint-Paul-de-Vence (the most beautiful town) and Èze. I also enjoyed the part of the tour in Monaco. It is a full day tour, so you need energy throughout the day. At the end I was happy and tired! I would recommend this tour to anyone with little time and wanting to see everything! Totally worth it.

Ingrid was very helpful, very attentive to our requests, and very patient in making sure we saw everything there was to see. We couldn’t have had a better guide.

Very beautiful sunny day and discovery of beautiful panoramas. A very friendly guide who adapted well to our request and provided good advice.

This was excellent and the guide was outstanding. I will be coming back and will ask the same company to see the sites.

The guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I highly recommend this tour. It was a wonderful day.
