What people are saying about Nice

The tour with the guide named Laurent (he was a very good guide and had a lot of insider tips for us) is highly recommended. We were picked up in front of our hotel in Nice in an air-conditioned van and then we went straight to the mountains. Several stops at the Grand Canyon of Europe allowed us to take great photos and enjoy the spectacular scenery. Unfortunately we had to see empty lavender fields, but instead we stopped for a swim at a beautiful lake (so pack your bathing suit). All in all really recommendable!

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.

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.

The tour was great fun. Unfortunately, we couldn't visit two places, including Monaco. Nevertheless, over time it turned out great and we were able to use the 4 hours without getting stressed. We can definitely recommend the tour.

Amazing! Carolina was a wonderful tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humourWish we could’ve done the full day tour though as the half day is a bit rushed.
