What people are saying about Nice

Had a great time on the bike tour, Carmela was a very informative tour guide. Great views and the bikes were easy to use, even up hills. We appreciated the cultural information that was shared. I probably would have preferred stopping a little less less and riding more, but that’s me. All in all it was a great way to spend the morning and would recommend it to others.

Foodtour that exceeded expectations, a magnificent experience that would not have been such without our guide Carmela, lively, sunny and super available to our every request, she accompanied us along the characteristic streets of Nice telling us the history of the city, all accompanied by wine and typical food carefully chosen for us. Super recommended experience!

Very friendly guide, Océane, who showed us some beautiful sights with lots of photo opportunities. The bikes were amazing; in good condition, easy to use and very helpful on the steep hills. So good we went back to hire scooters the next day which were equally fantastic.

Engaging and educational tour around Nice with spectacular views! Our guide was lovely and the tour great fun! Would highly recommend this e bike tour as its a great way to see Nice!
