Need Input Shore Excursion -- Cannes

Would love to get suggestions on shore excursions in Cannes. We will be on Norwegian Epic arriving on a Friday in May. Scheduled arrival time is 8am, departure at 6pm. Will there be enough time to include Monaco/Monte Carlo in the itinerary? Can someone recommend a reliable tour company? Cheers

We've been to the area several times, but on our own. We have done Viator tours elsewhere with success.

The Palace in Monaco is exceptional and the hill town of Eze is fantastic.
The views driving around this area are what you dream of.

Above is just a sample of Viator tours. Google them for more. I would definitely choose a smaller van instead of a huge bus.

Cannes is beautiful along the sea, but other than very high end shopping, that's it.

Just an FYI . . . Viator doesn't operate tours. They are a re-seller of other company's tours. They are definitely reputable, but just so one doesn't think they are touring w/ Vaitor (owned by tripadvisor).

As Janis says Viatour is not a tour company , they resell tour companies products , usually you can get a better price by booking directly , but on occasion they offer a deal when they buy a big block of a tour

No advice on your particular ports, but we did a cruise on Epic several years ago and it is a wonderful ship. If they still do Cirq at Sea, it is fantastic and worth the money, especially if you have kids with you.
