Our guide was very good (Georgi) and his voice carried most of the time to the back of the 8-person van. Eze was fascinating and we did not have near enough time there; a true medieval hilltop village, not as touristy as St Paul de Vence. The Fragonard shop was wonderful for gifts (loved the orange blossom, and the rose essences, all natural)but too rushed. Monaco and Monte Carlo.... would not do again, once was enough. Our tour driver stopped at a small street market in Nice so we could make some interesting purchases (wonderful cheeses; artisan soaps; Provencal tea towels and tablecloths, etc.)... much appreciated. We did not need the stop at the Russian Orthodox Cathedral and it cut down on our time in more interesting places, like Eze.

I was not really interested in seeing Monaco, but I did enjoy visiting St. Nicholas Cathedral and paid my respects at Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly's tombs. There was a lot of steep stairs on tour. I had to sit out the visit to Eze, a medieval city at the top of a mountain, only reachable by climbing many steeps. We also stopped at a Perfume factory, which was not on the tour description. I had to pass this one as well due to allergies. I could not even get near the building at this site. Not much free time to grab a bit to eat. Had to eat and run on this tour. For an 8 hour tour we spent a lot of time on the bus driving to one location to another.

The bus ride is only an hour from Cannes but be prepares to get stuck in traffic exiting the cruise port area. Also this is a tendering port, so takes longer to disembark. The Village of Eze is worth the visit, paid the 6 Euro and visit the Garden on top of the Village. The view is spectacular. Monaco is packed with tourists and if have time (3 hrs), be sure to visit the Oceanographic Museum and the Palace. The famous Casino is just packed and no camera allow (you must checked it before entering - they are very straight about it). Lots of nice cars around and expensive shops. Unless you stay in Cannes, better to take the tour offer by the cruise line
