We were in Monte Carlo last fall and used Sylvie di Cristo.  It really was the perfect day.  Sylvie is fun and interesting.  We saw Monte Carlo and then went to a beautiful mountain village that was so charming and not overrun with tourists and buses.  She picked a wonderful restaurant for lunch and we enjoyed a wonderful relaxing meal sitting outside on a medieval street.  We did a short hike along the coastline for a beautiful view of the coast.  Towards the end of the day we went to Villefranche.  It truly was a spectacular day.  She's also very flexible and will take you wherever you'd like to go.  Here's her contact info:  http://frenchrivieraguides.com/about-us-2/

Should you change your mind about a private tour guide and decide to go it alone, it is a really easy port to do this.

 

Tomsportguides is excellent, as is the visitmonaco website. The latter has links to buses too and even a section for cruise passengers with suggested itineraries for a short stay of only a few hours. There are bus routes, timetables and fare info on the buses link. They also have suggested walking routes depending on your interests.

 

It is compact but steep so if you want views from above, get a day ticket for the bus to get you up and down although the old town is walkable (with the elevator) from the port. Tomsportguides shows you how. Lots to see and do there, including gardens, museums, the old town, the casino etc so you will be spoiled for choice.

 

We bought a day ticket for the buses. Bus route#6 with its terminus at the Exotic Gardens for outstanding views although check in case that info has changed.
