Excellent experience with Viator Private Tours
, Jun 2022
Rado was excellent. Very helpful and polite. Really enjoyed his company. No hesitation in recommending Viator or Rado personally.
Great day!

Our tour guide Alexandre was great! We had some ideas about how we wanted to spend our day and our guide filled in the day around those destinations superbly. Great experience!

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!!!
Top Notch Tour Guide

We booked this tour off a cruise to see the french riviera and our guide Rene was Awesome!! He was very informative, knowledgeable and gave us the time we needed to explore in the various towns......too bad we didn't have more time to see more that day......thank you Rene!!
Amazing experience.

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!!
Cannes Shore Excursion: Private Tour of the French Riviera
, Jul 2019
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!

Rene was our private driver/guide, and he is excellent! Our family of six had a wonderful time. Rene's enthusiasm made the experience unforgettable. I highly recommend this tour!
DO NOT book tour operator VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL
, Jul 2019
The tour operator VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL offers late pick up (and argued with us regarding the scheduled time), no tour guide or local tour (only a driver that did not provide a tour) and the vehicle was a car (not a mini van). I was traveling with elderly participants, so this put 3 adults in the back seat of a car, and one of us in the front seat, with no local tour or tour guide. In other words, we took an Uber X to Monserrat, Morocco and Monte Carlo. We did see other tour operators and guides (even actively with their guests in the towns we visited) so I recommend calling to find out if VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL is the operator if you book the tour. I am sure there are other tour operators that contract through Viator that are much, much better, so if it is tour operator VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL do cancel and save yourself the trouble (and expense). I did ask for a partial refund, and VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL refused. Finally Viator offered 10% off (after one phone call, three emails and my expression that I would file a claim with my credit card). However, they are not good at math since the 10% they credit to my card was $47 for a $538 tour (?) I did contact my credit card and while any refund is still pending, they were helpful and recommended that if the tour was not as described (or written in the printed description) that I should have not gotten in the car (which should have been a minivan) and could have bailed at anytime and actually called a real Uber to get back. Lesson learned. Most tours I have booked through Viator (Italy, France, Portugal, Spain) have been great. The tour operator VIP RIVIERA TOUR SARL is a black eye for them.

Dear Customer, First of all thank you for at least letting us know your name, so we can find out what you are talking about and what really happened. We have no idea about date, month only the port as you have mentioned. We are available 7/7 24/24. So far nobody has contacted us for a refund or that he or she were not happy. All our guides are professional, native english speaking driver guides. Looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. King Regards, Lili

This is the only way to tour... with a private guide. Our guide was knowledgeable and took us to several cities and the country of Monaco. If you are in the area on a cruise ship this is a MUST do tour.
Top notch tour. Informative, and we saw a lot.

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.

We had a wonderful trip. We saw and learned so much. Our driver, shared stories of the history of Cannes, Eze, Monaco, and Monte Carlo as well as a little fun trivia about some of the famous people from the areas also. He was an excellent driver and allowed us plenty of time to enjoy our stops.
