Before you leave, take a tour of the Fragonard perfume factory and learn the secrets of one of France’s most prestigious perfume brands.

Continue to nearby La Turbie, where the star attraction is the dramatic ruin of the Trophy of the Alps, a 164-foot (50 meters) tall monument dating back to 6BC.

After crossing the border into Monaco, head straight for Monte Carlo, where you’ll have the rest of the day to take in the highlights. Pose for photos by the landmark Rock of Monaco; watch the Changing of the Guards at the Prince’s Palace; admire architectural wonders such as the Justice Palace and Monte Carlo Cathedral; or visit the Oceanographic Museum (own expense).

Finally, pay a visit to the world-famous Monte Carlo casino, built in 1878 by architect Charles Garnier, and drive around the legendary Grand Prix track, where the annual Formula One Monaco Grand Prix is held.

Monte Carlo/Eze

It’s a great way to see Monte Carlo and EZe in one day. We never went to La Turbie but I know we were running late. Had time on our own to explore these areas with my family and get lunch. Going to the perfume factory isn’t necessary but it was interesting.

Our guide Ben was fantastic and was able to get us to certain spots before it became too busy. Nice to have lunch time in Monarco and then another stop in Monte Carlo The perfume factory I could have done without as it really didn’t interest me

We had Xavier for our guide. He was excellent, very knowledgeable and gave enough time to see and do the highlights of the area. We saw the changing of the guard and drove along the course of the Formula 1 race track in Monaco, among other things on this tour. Would highly recommend.

We loved this experience. There were only the four of us so we had a private tour. Ben was a fantastic guide. He was sensitive to some health issues one of us has and always asked if they were comfortable doing a particular thing. He was knowledgeable and pointed out when we should get cameras out on the road to Monaco. He pulled over numerous times to enable us to get the best shot. He gave great directions for our free time and where to meet up. We were delayed a few minutes after lunch and he was great. We had a great time. It was worth the price. Highly recommend this company and will definitely use next time we are in Nice.

Not a guided tour with a guide - more like a drop off and pickup tour
Paul_K
, Feb. 2022
There isn't anything wrong with this tour but if you are expecting a guided tour with someone who walks with you and talks with you during the tour - this isn't going to happen. The guide, Xavier, was fine and talked in the van and explained what we would do. However, at the first stop - Eze - he pointed up the hill and said it was a long walk (which it was) and that he'd be waiting down at the van. He gave us a pickup time. I would have preferred someone explain what we were seeing and the significance of things but that's not how this tour works. However, all the things the tour promises are in the tour. You do see a lot and there is plenty to see.

Our tour guide was amazing. I can’t remember her name, but she was a local from Nice. She also was a tour guide in Paris in the past. I felt like she knew a lot! We have been on many tours and she was by far the most knowledgeable. It’s like every question we had, she had an answer. I really liked that. The French Rivera is slow during this time of the year so it was just us on the tour! So good. As it was great especially since the new Covid strain emerged. We made many stops along the way. We started off in Eze. From there we got out to view the city from above. We also went to a hotel that was built back in the 1800s. Some advice, we comfortable clothes and good shoes because there is alot of walking and climbing stairs. At the perfume factory, I was able to buy some cologne. The tour of the perfume factory was very informative. We drove through the town of Turbie. In Monaco, she gave us a tour of the town and she dropped us off. We stayed two hours in Monaco. We saw the changing of the guards. There are several gift shops and you had enough time to go to the Ocean museum. We didn’t go. We just walked around the city. Personally, if you don’t go to the museum, 2 hours was a long time to stay in the city. We then went to Monte Carlo. She gave us an overview of the city and recommendations on where to eat and places to shop. She dropped us off by the casino and we stayed there for two and a half hours. It cost money to go inside the casino and play but the first floor is free to explore. The stores are very high end so we didn’t do a lot of shopping. We could of stayed an hour and been fine. So a full day trip for us could have been done in a half day. So it’s up to you, if you’d like taking time to explore than a full day is great. Overall, I think the tour guide made the trip worth every penny.

We ended up having a private tour because we’re the only one who booked for the day. Off season is best if you prefer less crowd but it won’t guarantee a good weather. Best to have this tour during summer time. Our tour guide Yani was on time and very accommodating. He even suggested which spots to go to in Old Nice City. Overall this tour is a must if this will be your first time to visit Monaco.
