    My wife and I just completed this amazing 4-hour expedition through Old Town in Nice and had a wonderful time. The many foods we got to sample - sweet, savory, and all fresh - was a great way to experience the flavors of the region as well as accompaniment to Marion's spoken history of the area and the foods themselves. We also got to have some delicious coffees, teas, and wines along the way. An unexpected benefit was getting to meet and talk with the other folks in our group. All in all, a terrific low-key way to enjoy Nice!

    Great tour - recommended

    Marion is such a warm and lovely person and took a lot of time for us and our questions, she is also a local and has also told a lot about the history of Nice. We tried about 20 different 'bites' everywhere - it is highly recommended. Please do not have breakfast beforehand :)

    Best thing we’ve ever done in Nice!

    Our guide, Guillaume, made this experience. Very, very knowledgable! He could answer all our questions, as well as knowing the tour perfectly. Friendly and warm reception. He had everything we needed to have a fantastic experience. Food was a fantastic insight in to the local scene as well as tastes. Exceeded our expectations!
