Enjoy a walking tour of Monaco to view the Prince’s palace, the cathedral, Princess Grace's tomb, and to learn more about the history of this mythical city. Afterwards, visit the heart of Monte-Carlo with its Casino and the Hôtel de Paris.

Monaco is situated on the Cote d'Azur, between Cap d'Ail and Menton, only a few kilometers from the Italian Riviera. It is one of those magical, glamorous places of worldwide renown. Monaco is a prosperous, independent sovereign state with its own government. The head of state is His Royal Highness Prince Albert II. Monaco definitely has a privileged location. This tiny capital (nicknamed “the Rock”) is built into the mountainside and spreads down to the shores of the Riviera. 31 hectares have been added to Monaco's surface by building out onto the water. It is sunny almost all year round, and fabulous parks and gardens have been laid out throughout the city.

There are sumptuous boutiques with the latest fashions, palatial luxury hotels, and very chic restaurants. The cultural and sport centers are fitted out to perfection, and everywhere you look, stretch-limousines and Porsches travel along Monte Carlo’s famous twisting streets.

You can visit the Prince's Palace, which was built on the site of a 13th-century Genovese fortress. Admire the splendor of the 16th-century Italian Gallery, the Louis XV lounge, and the 17th-century Palatine Chapel.

Time permitting you could also visit the Oceanographic Museum that was inaugurated by Prince Albert I in 1910. Dedicated to the study of sea sciences, it took 11 years to build the impressive museum that sits on top of an 85-meter cliff. Inside you will discover an amazing collection of marine life, and you will be seduced by the numerous aquariums filled with colorful fish.


Enjoy lunch at leisure in a typical restaurant.


Drive on to the perched, medieval village of Eze that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The fortified castle’s ruins, sitting on a narrow, rocky peak, still crown this ancient village. The untouched magic of the village will enchant you.

The beach in the "baie d'Eze" is easily accessible and is shaded by pine-trees that grow down almost to the water's edge. Perched on the top of an imposing, superb cliff, the village, with its light ochre church, can be seen from afar. To reach the entrance, take the small, rocky path and admire the splendid view of the gardens that surround the Château de la Chèvre d'Or.

Once inside, you will discover a small, charming Provencal village, filled with colorful window boxes and offering a panoramic view of the coastline.

You will be seduced by the marvels of Eze: Small, narrow roads, archways and superbly restored stone houses, shady squares and refreshing ancient fountains. The village is so beautiful; you will think that you have stumbled onto a movie set!

The numerous artisans’ boutiques are hard to resist. Some of them resemble tiny caves dug into the rocky hillside. The streets of this medieval village were witness to its historic past. The two lookout towers at the entrance, the doorway and the gunboat are all listed as historic monuments.


5:00 pm: Return to your hotel.

We went through various options for our trip and Didier at Decouvertes was very prompt in updating the plans and quotes to accomodate us. the only issues that came up during the trip were the rental car agency who wanted to charge us twice and the hotels requesting to see a voucher of our payment. Both were resolved through discussions with their staff on duty, but I wonder if there could have been more information made available to us to show that we had pre-paid for these items.

We never had a moment of worry. Our guide John-Noel was so wonderful and professional. We had our high school Junior with us and we were able to see where history was made.

The guides on our tours in Southern France were extremely knowledgeable and willing to please. They were flexible to our requests throughout the day to make sure we saw and did what we wanted, which we really appreciated. They were all very well studied in the history of the area and very passionate in sharing that with us. It was a pleasure to discover this beautiful part of the world with Decouvertes.

Descouvertes was an absolutely perfect travel service. Their arrangements of lodging and transportation were done to ensure the maximum of comfort and travel experience in our trip. Every travel guide who met us catered to our desires and demonstrated a full knowledge of the organization they were dealing with on our behalf, especially in airports and train stations. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we toured and did everything to show us the things we were interested in. The Descouvertes service was essential to the overall success and enjoyment of our trip!

We were delighted with our guides. Their knowledge of history, local economy, geography, art and culture was truly impressive. And they both had great personalities, too! Instructions were clear on how to meet to get started. The pace was relalxed but we got a lot done! Restaurants chosen for meals while we were out and abut were charming and our meals were delicious. We also did a large group dinner in Paris, arranged by Decouvertes which went off without a hitch. Here is an agency you can count on for caring service and attention to detail.

Paris ground arrangements

By: Mike and Susan

Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2017

This group provided us a well-qualified and responsive guide for several days of viewing the sites of Paris. They were well-organized and responsive. The guide (Elvira Mendes-Gregoire) was especially good. She understood that we did not want to spend a great deal of time in museums but rather wanted to see neighborhoods and have a sense of the City over a limited amount of time. Based on her guidance we were able to ride the Metro and get around ourselves on the several days we did not have a guide. It was a very enjoyable introduction to Paris for both of us.

We loved the tours they scheduled for us and our guide, Denise. We were treated like VIP's every step of the way and experienced things that most tourists do not see. Denise knows all the guides at the local attractions and gets us right into places that others cannot go. She is very knowledgeable and interesting. We would recommend and use this Tour Operator again any time. Our driver was great too.
