Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Tour of the French Riviera
The vans we had were clean and comfortable. The guides were informative, and spoke English well (and 5 other languages). Having the driver allowed us to see and do quite a bit instead of worrying about driving and parking. It was a great tour. We saw things you wouldn't have seen without local knowledge.

Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Tour of the French Riviera
Rene was our guide and gave us an unbelievable experience. He was funny, engaging and very knowledgeable. Turned our trip into a big quiz show so that we definitely remembered everything he told us. The excursion was amazing and fun. Would definitely recommend this and if you get Rene, you are extremely lucky. Thank you Rene!!

We were a group of 13, both our drivers were wonderful. My only recommendation is that it should at least an 8 hour tour not 7.

Full-Day Private Cannes Shore Excursion: Monte Carlo, St-Paul-de-Vence, Nice
So I spent a week in Europe and had three guided tours. This was by far the best tour. I have booked on Viator numerous times but do read reviews and was a little nervous there were none for this excursion. Doing my research I found out this was run by "Sophie Tour" and they did have good reviews. Anyway we met Daniel our guide and driver. Be aware there is a difference. A driver basically drives you place to place with some info while driving. They drop you in an area and then your on your own. One guide had us walk to where he was instead of driving to the 10 of us in 100 degree weather even after we called him and said we were lost. Daniel walked with us basically everywhere and answered every question we had, even the silly questions the kids had. He was great with the boys and it probably helped him having his own child. Anyway we went to the most beautiful of places and my only regret was not listening to him about Eze. I wanted to go and was almost a brat about it, how disappointing. One of our more elder family members could not do the walk, even the young ones were breathing hard. The stores were snobby and high priced but we did find a gelato place that also served Beer and Lemonade...I know I know but try it, so good! Daniel introduced us to that drink as well, its known in US as a Shandy, its my new drink and all I drank during the cruise..lol. We went to Nice, Eze, Monte Carlo, Monaco and all the little places in between. The ride to each place was filled with amazing views and landscapes. Monaco was my favorite with its beautiful buildings, gardens, shore line and of course its roads that look like diamonds. If I did it again I would go to the Monaco Oceanographic Aquarium/Museum and skip Eze all together. One of our teens only request the entire day was to get an authentic Macaron and Daniel said we could make it happen. He actually parked and ran into a couple places before he found a proper bakery. I wondered if he was an owner due to how professional and dedicated he was with us. Daniel also had the timing down pat to get us back to the cruise on time. There was 8 of us on this excursion an we all fit comfortably in the van. I sat in the front seat due to being the one who takes a million pictures. So Im not sure if this will be the first Viator review for this excursion and company but dont look by this excursion because of lack of reviews here. Thank you Sophie Tour & Daniel, best Tour in France!

Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Tour of the French Riviera
Too bad there are not more stars to be given!!! Rene was our tour guide - he is so gifted at his craft. He was giving us details the entire drive about different yachts in the sea - celebrity homes - history and dates of events. He was an incredible wealth of information - he was pleasant, friendly and funny. he gave little bits of information like about how many Starbucks are there and about speed cameras and other crazy facts that were interesting. He stopped to get special passes for us and samples of perfume......he just kept surprising us!!! If you were to pick the perfect tour guide it would have Rene's picture!!! It was very obvious his colleagues had a great deal of respect for him. He is just an awesome and interesting man!!!

Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Tour of the French Riviera
Our excursion to Cannes and Monaco was a real blast! We had the great fortune to have a wonderful tour guide, whose name was Eyija. We were really impressed by her enthusiasm, passion, and her extensive knowledge of the history of the locations we visited and drove by. Throughout the trip, she was positive, patient, and accommodated our needs efficiently and thoughtfully. Overall, we really enjoyed the beautiful scenery, majestic buildings, unique souvenir shops, as well as the delicious food of course!

How to Get to Cannes From the Cannes Cruise Port

Cruise ships dock in the bay and passengers take tenders (small boats) to the Old Port (Le Vieux Port). From there, it's a short walk to Cannes’ city center, where you’ll find the Quai Laubeuf bus station and the Marine Railway Station (Gare Maritime). Shore excursions typically depart from the dock.
