About the tour

For centuries visitors to the French Riviera have been transfixed by this magical Village perched in the mountains between Nice and Monaco. Tim will take you on a tour through its glorious narrow streets, round its gorgeous exotic garden and introduce you to the amazing 5 star hotel that clings to the hillside. We’ll also meet some of the local artists working there and discover how and why it is now a worldwide centre for the production of perfume.

Love Tim’s tours but yesterday’s was adversely affected by frequent loss of signal in hilly Eze.Tim battled on valiantly, also coping with a bit of a spat amongst the viewers on the Chat column!

Absolutely stunning tour with Tim! Everywhere he turns is a postcard and a wow moment. great job at climbing all the way up there to give us the best looks and for giving us so much information. I think this place is the definition of paradise. I don't mind the pointing at all, as sometimes it's necessary to see what he's talking about, plus he gives us plenty of postcard opportunities. He handled the chat discussion really well. I love Tim's tours :)
