“The best days value & entertainment in Cannes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We have been sailing with Pierre and Joyce for 10 years now. Around 95 euro per adult for the day from 10:30 am to 6pm including lunch with wine, it is the best value anywhere. It is a great way to spend the day when the weather is good, but it is even better when the wind is strong and you have to put on oilskins. Then it is pure sailing ;-) if you have never sailed on a yacht before this is perhaps the best introduction.

“Fabulous day out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Folly-Too was an excellent experience! Pierre and Joyce made us feel very welcome and have showed us an amazing part of the South of France. If you can do it- you must!

“Pierre and Joyce are more Cannes than the Festival”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Folly Too was my favourite weekend activity when I lived in Cannes, and I am glad to see that the formula has survived through the years. Pierre and Joyce were a young couple at the time, I am sure they still are <wink> and I am hoping to go back to Cannes soon to sail to the Iles du Prince or St. Tropez on the beautiful Folly Too (ask Pierre for the history to the name -- mention Hecate, another beautiful boat).

Couldn't recommend more. Folly Too will make you feel like a millionaire for a day.

“Great Time Out in Cannes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Folly Too is the name of the sailing yacht owned and captained by Pierre Lambert and his wife Joyce. If you are lucky to be in Cannes do not miss an opportunity to take a sailing trip with this fantastic couple.

First, it’s important to set proper expectations for this excursion. This is not a tour; it is a sailing adventure that is easy going and relaxing, offers a great get away from the typical sight seeing, and provides an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Cannes and Mediterranean. On our one day cruise we have spent entire day on boat, but during this time we have helped to sail, had fantastic time swimming and snorkeling, enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Joyce, and benefitted from much needed siesta. We also met other families from different countries, and had a great time communicating and exchanging stories.

As Captain Pierre said “bring only bathing suits, towels, sunscreen, smiles, and big appetite”. You can find the blue Folly Too at the old port at Cannes.

Thank You Pierre and Joyce, we had a wonderful time.
