Our day trip to Eze and Monaco began on time and we had a smaller group of only 4 travelers which was nice to have more space in the minivan. We began our trip to the Fragonard perfumery in Eze and since we had already visited the day prior on another tour in Grasse, our guide was very accommodating to our request to start our exploration of Eze earlier. The guide dropped off the other party at the perfumery and gave us a lift to the starting point to explore Eze. Eze was just wonderful to see and experience. We had an ample time of 1.5 hr to explore the place, buy a few jams from the Essence of Eze (highly recommend), and get great photos. It is a small village commune so you can see everything by foot in less than 2 hours. Monaco was incredible. We saw the changing of guards, Oceanography museum (separate tix cost), botanical gardens, did a lap around the Grand Prix race track, and visited Monte Carlo. Everything was amazing. Great tour guide as well!
