What people are saying about Nice

Fantastic tour! Our guide was Nejib, who knows the history of Nice very well. He showed us the hiddem gems of the old town, and also beutiful panoramas from the Castle Hill. After the tour, he sent us a lot of useful recommendations where to eat (restaurants, roof top bars) and also what to see. We booked this tour very late (previous day at 8.00 pm), but that was not a problem. Nejib came to the meeting point in the morning. I recomend this tour if you want to see this beautiful city and learn more about it's history.

Our guide , Gabriella (Carmela actually) showed us so many great views of Nice and shared historical references of each place we stopped to enjoy. The stories of the Angels bay provided great context and background. The rain blessed us on out tour and we loved that. Perfect first day of our visit and helped so much to fend off jet lag.

A good start to the holiday. Old Nice is so full of winding streets. The guide pointed out sites that I otherwise would not have seen

Such a fun night! Our guide, Ricardo, was so much fun!

I had an amazing time and highly recommend the tour.
