RACE OVERVIEW

Monaco Grand Prix
Monaco is like no other place on earth. It is the home of the super-rich, who take their out-of-town vacation when the crowds and noisy race cars come once a year. They like their elbow room and being able to get a table at their favorite restaurant. Ever bought a $70 beer or a Coke for $50? During the Grand Prix the nicely-printed new menus are more than double the regular prices, if you can get a table.

You can tell your friends back home about the $70 bottles of beer and the $300 scotch at the Billionaires Club you didn`t buy. There are tales that the crews of super yachts have spent $70,000 for an evening out on the owner`s tab. Sounds crazy doesn`t it, but it is the excesses of corporate spending that people brag about when they get home.
Stay on le ponant and you can go where ever and whenever you want to go. If you are tempted to be on a big cruise lines be aware they will have to follow a stricked schedule have to stay out anchored at sea, and that is a problem. You get a few white caps and you can`t get off the ship - imagine going all that way to Monaco, spending oodles of money, and not seeing the race? You can also get stuck in Monaco if the ship sails to a safer harbor. Vacations are not for this type of predicament.

We have operated tours to the Monaco Grand Prix for over 30 years and have experienced all the problems you can have. You can look on a map that shows a grandstand within easy reach - because of road closures it will take you 50 minutes to get there by foot, unless you know about the tunnels that will shorten your walk to a few minutes. All the GP Tours staff has experienced the Monaco Grand Prix over 20 times. They know how to get to the Old Town in a few minutes, or the Casino by boat and elevator in five minutes flat.

The Monaco Grand Prix can be a nightmare or the most exciting weekend of your life. We prefer the latter as we organize the trip, and look after you with our expertise when you are there. We make sure you get the best Monaco Grand Prix available. Our inside connections allow us to get the best rooms and the best viewing locations available, along with our knowledge of the each event location you will be sure to have an experience of a life time and a hassle-free weekend.
