Super trip especially when you are caught for time. Its just amazing. Our tour guide Alex was absolutely super, we would have been lost without him all the little viewing points along the way we would have never found if we were doing it alone.he couldn't have done enough for us and was a book of knowledge and facts the whole duration of the trip. Definitely recommend doing it you wont be disappointed.

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.

I have just landed in Nice and wanted to get myself familiar with the area…. So what a better way to quickly go around the city? SEGWAY from Mobilboard. An amazing experience, lovely people to deal with at Mobilboard and specially our guide Tristain.

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.

The tour was great. Chris was a great guide and, since he is a real Niçois, drew the group's attention to many details that are not in any travel guide. You can tell he's passionate about his city.
