What people are saying about Nice

We had Matthew as our guide, he was very warm and knowledgeable, and readily shared information and stories about the places we drove passed from the moment we boarded his vehicle even though it was not one of the itinerary stop yet. He ensured our needs are taken care of throughout the trip, we recommend him as a guide, thank you Matt!

Highly recommended - top guide who tried to make everything possible. It's also a bit exhausting due to the many stops, but you probably wouldn't see so many beautiful places in one day on your own! :)

Rachel was a wonderful guide! We had many stops and even with the rain we learned so much and tried many foods! Rachel made it extra enjoyable and made sure we had plenty to eat!

We loved our tour guide Rachel and the entire experience! She was very knowledgeable and so much fun! We would recommend this to anyone visiting Nice!

Great experience, with the right tour guide, such tours are excellent
