With its racing pedigree, Ferrari has built cars which far exceed the expectations of their owners. Take a thrilling drive along the most beautiful roads and panoramas of the French Riviera between Monaco and Nice. Explore the winding hill side road that is as spectacular as the scenery. There is an option between 15 minute, 30 minute and 2 hours activities available - check the grid above to confirm what has been included in your itinerary (and let us know if you'd like to change it to a longer or shorter activity) with either with a professional driving instructor as your pilot or the choice to take the wheel and be in the drivers seat with the driving instructor as your passenger.
On the 15 minute tour, where your Ferrari experience starts from the village of Eze, the itinerary takes in the Moyenne and Grande Corniche, allowing for great panoramas over Monaco Bay. For the 30 minutes to 2 hour tour options, since the activity is not allowed inside the Principality, the professional driver will drive to the border outside of Monaco (about 3 to 5 mn); where after you can either take in the great views throughout the drive, or take the wheel if you have chosen to drive. (A change of Instructor driving to client driving if the instructor driving activity has been confirmed on your itinerary is not allowed as additional insurance and rate applies. If you think you would prefer to drive please ensure that you have "client driving" option).

"People do not know what they are missing by not going to Romania. The landscape: beautiful, clean, untouched. The people: People exceeded friendly! Super safe. Wherever we went, we received the reception of "Welcome, welcome! You are our guest", by everyone. Food & Drink: Everything had such incredible flavor! They use only the freshest ingredients and everything is organic. Every meal was a new, exciting experience to our palettes. Architecture: The beauty, intricacy, history. One cannot help but appreciate the abundance of castles, churches and buildings boasting such incredible architecture. Experience Romania sooner than later! You’ll be so glad you did! Once again, Kensington Tours, and special thank you to Claudia.

Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat. It will always be a wonderful memory thanks to Kensington Tours."

"Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!"

"My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bend over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangement made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again."
