Enjoyed the fact that our guide did all the talking about upcoming destinations on the drive and basically allowed us to explore on our own at each stop. Went to an unplanned viewpoint - best photos. Good pace for the day and appreciated the small group rather than a pack of people wasting time waiting around. Thanks Mago !

The hotel pickupwas on time. The driver and guide was a young person who had excellent communicating skills and was fiving his own... comments along the way that was enjoyable. Yhe audio guide was very good. The drive to Eze and Monaco wasawesome and the guide was a sikked driver maneuvering the steep curves and gradients very well. The sights are unbelievable. The palace visitwith change of guards, st Nicholas chursh and the grave of Grace Kelly- too good. Although we did not have enough time tisee the Oceanography museum and aquarium.
