Overall a very nice tour, but could have skipped the perfume factory and spent more time on the other sites. Our driver/host Cathy with Liven up Tours was very professional and pleasant. Would recommend this tour but ask to see if they could eliminate the perfume factory stop.
Very difficult to understand the lady due to her accent. One too many people in the van very crowed. Had to pay 10 euros to visit the casino pay to have the opportunity to lose some money at the tables!!!
Guide and tour were both good, but the stop at the perfume factory was completed unwarranted and too commercial.
Truly enjoyed the tour, the pace, the guide was knowledgable and van very comfortable. I like the style of a mini van and only 6-7 total people. Would definitely join a tour of this type of your limited in time and want to see many places in one day. Thanks!
This tour was excellent. The guide was knowledgeable and told us many facts. She could answer all the questions we asked. She did everything to please us and show us as much as possible. She even returned us on time for boarding the ship. Her name was Lucille or Lucie. We would recommend her anytime
