Was a beautiful area to see and explore. Our guide was a bit into herself and even changed the order of our tour which was no big deal except we had to pay extra to go into the Casino which was odd since the description of the tour said it included the Casino. Was great getting to see inside but since she changed the order the Casino was closed for gambling and for the few of us who wanted to try our luck--we were without any luck! Read Less

Could have been better. We drove to Monte Carlo via Nice is a huge thunder storm with driving rain which meant it took longer. It was wet in Monte Carlo, so we went round the casino which was fabulous even if we did have to pay 12 euros and the toilets were not initially open.As an F1 fan seeing the inonic curves and tunnel was great too. There was a delay leaving as two members got lost erturning to the bus. Ths meant that after the talk in Monanco in two languages we only had 30mins or so before having to head back to the bus. On the plus side it was sunny so got some lovely photos. Read Less

It was a super hot day so the time we had at each location was fine. If you really want to go into the palace or cathedral then don't combine this with the Nice tour as you won't have enough time. Fun to see how the mega- rich live! Oh and there is no charge to play slots at the Casino Monte Carlo - the 17 Euros is for table game play only. Read Less

Small-group tour was nice, but we missed changing of the guard in Monte Carlo and did not stop at La Turbie. There was a lot of traffic, but we spent too much time at a perfume factory.

Once again we had a very good tour guide and bus driver. In the end we took the more scenic drive from Cannes to Monaco. Got to visit Monte Carlo, Cathedrale de Monaco where Princess Grace and Prince Rainer are buried, Oceanographic Museum on the outside, and the changing of the guard (even saw Prince Albert in his limo entering the Palace gates). During our free time we were able to visit the Palace, have a coffee and cake at the Chocolaterie de Monaco (chocolatier to the Royal House), do some shopping, visit the gardens overlooking the sea. Afterwards we went to Monaco to visit the Casino on the outside (17 euros to get in and can only see 3 rooms), Opera de Monaco on the outside, Hotel de Paris, and all the crowds ogling the fancy cars parked in the square. Did not enjoy this part of the city. Also saw the circuit of the Formula 1 race, the Jardins Japonais, and some more time to walk around a bit. We managed to see quite a bit, it is a full day tour.

I took the train to Monte Carlo. It was a public holiday and all the buses were free. It was great and I took #8 all about both Monaco and Monte Carlo. When I had seen the city, I took the train where I met fellow cruisers. We stopped in Nice, walking 10 minutes to the beach. We made it back to Cannes in time to amble through the streets. Sure we didn't get to see museums that were closed but we enjoyed the ambience, the sun and Cote D'Azure in a tame whirlwind and it was magic. The train takes to you all the places you hear of in songs like 'Where do you Go to My Lovely' Read Less

This was the only tour we reserved via NCL and it was the one that we least liked. The guide wasn't great. Not too much commentary and not motivated. While I rated in average, because I feel that saying poor is too harsh since we enjoyed Monaco. Monte Carlo was okay. Nice to see the expensive cars in front of the hotel & casino but other than that not much else to see or do. Read Less
