Traveler Tips


  • "Manaco is quite a long drive from the pier, the tour leaves a 9am and has you back to the pier at scheduled 2pm, which is odd because the ship leaves at 5pm." See review
  • "Audrey is also a very good driver, which is not trivial on the winding roads of the Riviera." See review

Our guide was very good...

Our guide was very good and the places we visited beautiful. However the traffic getting to these places was not good. A half day excursion ended up being a full day one.

We were 2 families in a small, comfortable buss, so it was easy to decide how much time we wanted to spend at each stop. The driver was knowledgable and accommodating, the sites were beautiful. We loved the trip

Do not use Terrible Terry as your tour guide
Xiomara_A
, Jul 2022
I’ll explain in detail the reason for my low rating. The actual places we were taken to were nice, I found the perfumery to be completely unnecessary & I wasn’t even aware it was a stop on our tour. It took a lot of valuable time away from the places that are advertised we would be taken to. Our tour guide Terry was awful! He had an awful attitude from the very beginning as our ship arrived late (not our fault) he had the “you’re just dumb Americans” attitude towards us the entire tour. On multiple occasions he spoke to us in a very condescending tone, one of the times was because we asked to wait for the AC to kick in before entering the van, as the temps in France were at an all time high during our visit. He was not impressed with us “spoiled Americans” wanting to be seated in a semi cool vehicle that was promised as part of our tour. His driving was erratic and we did not always feel safe. I will caution you to avoid using Terry as your tour guide if you’re hoping to take away a decent experience while in France. I hope the owners of the tour have an opportunity to read this they should know that Terry is not a great representation of their company or country.

Horrible Scam
Katherine_S

I have used Viator for numerous ship excisions, but have never encountered a situation like this. The tour company, Liven Up left BEFORE the passengers got off of the ship we were on, and then only gave us a partial refund! Essentially they stole have of our money and did not provide the tour. How can you claim to be a shore excursion if you don't work around the cruise ships actual docking time??? I am deeply concerned that Viator promotes a company such as Liven Up to use as cruise ship excursions. Ships dock in Cannes daily. This is not a new formula. I, on two different occasions reached out to Liven Up, updating them to the best of my ability the schedule of the boat, up to the night before. On neither occasion did Liven Up respond. I have attached our tender ticket showing we were in the first group off of the boat. We were with the guests that directly booked with MSC and they had a plethora of busses waiting to be boarded and none of them were left at the port. There was no one holding a sign with our name as the first tender arrived. I have also included a snapshot of one of the other larger/ reliable companies waiting as not only our group got off but numerous other groups across over the next hour and half. We asked many helpful people around the exit and the dock, but no one had heard of Liven Up. I understand that the cruise ship does not have a guaranteed time to get into port, but any company working with cruise passengers need to actually work around the ships schedule as they dock each day. Furthermore, Liven Up never even reached out to us. We were in a foreign country, and abandoned by the excursion we hired with our two children. We ended up have to pay almost a 25% increase to hire a taxi to take us in the excursion. Then to find out Liven up is refusing to refund the rest of the money for an activity they never provided is infuriating.

Shocking Experience
Najla_A
, Jul 2022
Our tour guide was very informative and the trip was great. The view from Eze was beautiful and Monaco was nice to visit. However, the guide was very passive aggressive. He did not take us to the Fragonard Perfume Factory and when we asked why all he said was “Eze is better”. When we negotiated with him he said “fine, 20 mins for Eze and 20 for the factory”. We arrived back to our spot 20 mins after but he said “the factory is closed today”!!!!! He did not mention that in the beginning! It seemed like he was making up excuses just because he didn’t want to go there. We tried to talk to him about it but all he said was “if you have a problem, complain to my boss.”This is very unprofessional and gives Viator and LivinUp an unprofessional image. I recommend that LivinUp takes care of this issue, especially for future customers.

Don’t miss the boat…

We were tendered at Cannes and we’re not permitted to leave the ship until 9am but then we had to get to the dock via tendered boat. Our excursion LEFT US saying, “they couldn’t wait”. WHAT?!?! They should have known that the Disney Magic was late getting approved to let people off the ship. We called and the tour company said they can’t do anything and would not refund us our money. Super disappointing. Not sure I will book anything through Viator again. :(

Rushed Tour
Eve_S

We got off the ship and our guide was not there yet. He showed up right at the time the tour was supposed to start. He was nice and made small talk. Everything started fine. We went through Cannes and got to the perfumery in Eze; we spend too much time there because off course they take you so you buy something. Then, he did not realize that we were all waiting for him seating around. We didn't climb all the way to the Village (it is quite a hike and we did not have enough time; it is a steep hike and the guide said we only had 15-20 more minutes, so we decide just to go to a certain point, not all the way to the church). Then we went to Monaco, we were late and missed the changing of the guard (we were given 20 minutes there). Then back to the ship. On the drive back from Monaco, he was nervous, in a rush, and we felt unsafe; a couple of times he almost crashed. He kept saying he was late for his next tour.

Interesting and fun excursion
Ernest_W

We got off on the wrong foot with our driver / tour guide. Our pickup time was at 8:00 at the Radisson hotel. So we arrived earlier to pick up some croissants and coffee for breakfast, and got to the meeting spot at 7:52, thinking we had a few minutes to finish our breakfast. She seemed upset that we were “late”, and that it is not polite to bring food into someone’s vehicle … neither of which was true. She said she had other passengers to pick up as well … which we said we would wait for her to pick them up first … but she ended up waiting for us as we wolfed down our breakfast under her watch. Since the other party cancelled at the last minute, we were the only party in the van ... then she transformed into her tour guide mode. She took us to several places we would never have found. She had lots of interesting facts and trivia, and we learned a lot from her. However, she was always looking at the the time and rushing us into and out of attractions because she wanted to squeeze as many sights as possible within our timeframe. While we initially thought it was going to be a stressful tour, it turned out that we really, really enjoyed it! Thank you Hedwig!

Disappointing
Kimberly_S
, Jul 2022
Very disappointing. Our "guide" had an accident before picking us up at the port and was an hour late. It was his first week as a guide. I don't think he had any real training. We missed the changing of the guards and the village of La Turbie was not pointed out to us. On a plus side, the van was clean and the driver was a good driver. The tour was more of a private car, instead of a tour, with very little to no information about what we were seeing. If you are not going to buy perfume I would recommend you ask your driver to skip the tour and spend the extra time in Eze. Eze was the highlight of our day. The perfume factory is at the base of Eze so even if half the car stayed I would recommend you start the walk up the hill.

AMAZING MONACO, MONTE CARLO, EZE - STUNNING VIEWS !!!! Favorite tour in Europe. Our ship, The Epic made 6 stops. Frederic our guide of this small group was fantastic!!!! He was personable and had extensive knowledge. Gotta say that Eze was a pure delight. Crazy little city built upon a rock. Would like to have spent hours there in the little cozy shops and eateries. Everything about this Liven Up tour was excellent. Professional and well organized. Perfume factory was lovely. We drove the Formula 1 route. Monte Carlo was fantastic.

One of our favorite tours during our trip. Our tour guide was engaging & knowledgeable. He shared much about this region of France. Eze was absolutely stunning. It’s a hike to get there but we’ll worth the unforgettable views. Monaco was also very impressive with the vast array of luxury cars. We also watched the changing of the guards at the palace which we all found interesting too.
