This was my first trip exploring the "Cote d'Azur" I was very impressed with all the different places, museums, restaurants we visited. The scenery was spectacular and the weather was very pleasant. This program should be a few days longer too have a little more time to savor this area of France. Julian, he guide was quite knowledgeable and had the skills to engage the travelers with his presentations. He gave us a good variety of language, culture and current events. He was very organized and prepared to guide us on this French journey. I liked staying in NIce and having that as our base made it easy to venture out each day on our excursions. For me taking the train to Cannes was a highlight to have a change from the bus. Three other highlights were the visit to Antibes, going to Monaco and the Matisse Chapel. The Best Western was a very comfortable hotel and well-situated downtown. My only concern was the size of the hotel room. Sharing a room was tight and it was difficult to find places to put our belongings. Fortunately, there was a closet and a safe that was easy to use. Merci pour autre aventure magnifique!
