A day’s guided Riviera tour introduces you to the region’s top sights, so you can return to your favourites
There is so much to see on the French Riviera that a first time visit can be overwhelming, so we love introducing newcomers to the main sights.
Cannes, Monaco, Eze, St Paul de Vence and Antibes are big names, all of which conjure dreamy images of the French Riviera…and rightly so! In fact, the French Riviera has so much to offer, visitors are often dreaming of very different things:
- Glamorous towns with luxury boutiques, mega yachts and Michelin stared restaurants…
- Little hilltop villages with beautiful panoramic views over olive groves & authentic local produce…
- Walking in the footsteps of famous artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and hearing anecdotes & facts about historic figures Queen Victoria, Napoleon, Augustus…
Discover Your Riviera with a full day tour
We have a lot up our sleeves and our job is to understand what you’re most interested in so that we can help you discover Your Riviera. The very best way to do that is by starting with the Full Day Riviera Tour, which offers you a little taste of the most famous towns along the Côte d’Azur.
This is a day packed full of tales and stories, stunning views, grand architecture, historic facts and by the time we drop you back at your hotel you will have a far better understanding of the different facets of the French Riviera. Along the way our guides will make recommendations & answer questions to help you plan the rest of you stay or future visits.
Once you have experienced the Full Day Riviera Tour you may decide to return to your favourite places on public transport to explore them at a leisurely pace on your own. In which case, we’re happy to answer your questions and provide advice to make sure you get the most out of your solo day trip.
Tempting you off the beaten track
You may also love our guide so much that you decide to book another shared tour, or ask us to prepare a private itinerary based on your feedback from the Full Day Riviera Tour. At Friend in France we’re all passionate about the area (and perhaps a little bit geeky too) so we love tempting visitors off the beaten track to places they wouldn’t normally have explored.
If your trip to the Riviera was short and sweet, the Full Day Riviera Tour will definitely leave no doubt in your mind that you covered as much ground as possible in a limited space of time. We’re willing to bet that you’ll be planning your next visit!
Here are some of the comments left by our customers after spending the day with us on the Riviera Tour:
This was the second time in a year that I had used Friend in France and I was not disappointed! This time we did the best of the Riviera Tour with Cyril and we had an amazing time. We appreciated the extensive information our driver Cyril shared with us. We really loved Eze and the guided tour of the Fragonaud perfume factory. The whole trip was unforgettable.

Our guide Ceril was not only knowledgeable about the area but an excellent driver who got us close to all the places we were to see. Can’t say enough about how good he was. The tour itself gives a great trip to the difference parts of the Riviera from Monte Carlo to Cannes. We liked St. Paul best and were really pleased this was included.
Alan & Joyce Methelis – February 2014
The day trip in the Riviera with our guide sharing so much valuable information with us during our travels was absolutely amazing. We only had one day to cover a vast area and had loads of fun and learnt so much about each area that we visited. i would recommend the tours to anyone and will be back in May to book again.
Barbara Frassier – February 2014
This was a nice way to get the whirlwind tour of the area and it helped us decide where we would like to spend more time. We saw Antibes, Cannes, St Paul, Eze, Monaco and so much more. Mira was an excellent driver and very knowledgeable about the towns and their history. There’s no way we could have done this on our own in the same amount of time. If we return to Nice, I’d definitely use FIF’s services again.
Mr & Mrs Rose – December 2013
Mira was very knowledgable and wasn’t overbearing as some tour guides can be. Eze and St Paul were excellent places to visit, Cannes was a bit yawn. I would recommend this tour as soon as you arrive in Nice so you can make an informed decision on which places to visit again. When we visit Nice again, we will be giving Mira a call.
It was our 26th Wedding anniversary and Mira even gave us restaurant tips for the evening !
Craig Rothwell – July 3013
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our day long tour of the Rivera with Friend in France. Our guide, Mira, was personable and well informed. We were offered options for pick up location, and ours was less than a minute’s walk from our apartment in Old Town. Although there was much to see, Mira provided us a wonderfully paced day, and arranged our early AM transportation to the airport as well. Very pleasant experience.
