Amazing Tour. Nathan was our guide and he was so kind and helpful. Very knowledgeable about Nice and Monaco. He let us stay for the last part of the tour as well (for a small fee) and that was equally as amazing. Highly recommend this tour if you're staying in Nice.

Excellent guide, tour a bit rushed I would have loved to spend more time in Eze, but sadly.. for the rest quite informative and leaves you wanting more
