Taking the ride down in the basket which is steered by two men is a BLAST.... Truly LOVED it..... The botanical gardens to me are a must see.... Loved the Cable Car also...
Don't Miss: The ride in the basket steered by the two men!

Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France

5 out of 5
DId the trip to Monarco/Monte Carlo..... so glad that we did.... Exceptional....
Don't Miss: Monarco/ Monte Carlo....

Pros: The service.... all staff had super attitudes and we felt that they TRULY CARED about you and wanted you to have a great vacation.

Cons: The excursions ..... getting on and off.... due to the security machine.... If they had two.... so much faster.. Sure it's the COST!!!
