What people are saying about Nice

Guillaume gave us an amazing experience this evening in the French Riviera! Our tour began with him asking how we would like to spend our time, emphasizing that the “boat was ours”. We felt like VIPs as we set sail in the backyards of some of the world’s wealthiest. The boat was 100% solar powered which was great for the environment and resulted in a very quiet ride for us. Guillaume pointed out famous residences and buildings as we passed by, which was very interesting! If you are in Nice, I would highly recommend coming down to Port de Beaulieu-sur-Mer and taking this lovely excursion.

Kind and nice guide! fully enjoyed our visit to Cote d'Azur. Definitely a must-do when you visit Nice.

This was a really nice, different type of activity to do in Nice. Very relaxing way to start the day.
