Picked up in the morning for 1:00 tour. No notification. Not much history or information shared unless I asked about what we were seeing out the window. Expected more dialogue and some history.

Our tour guide was great. She really knows her history snd her pride for Nice is evident. We wound up being the only two people on the tour so it was very personal. Nice is a beautiful historic city with a lot t see snd do. This tour was a great overview of the city and its history.

This was a great tour of the city of Nice, We saw such excellent views, and were able to take such wonder photos. I don't remember the name of our tour operator, but he was excellent. A much if you are in Nice, and want to get a panoramic view. Again, I would like to add Viator, need to update or add more options for "What sort of visit was this?, as this was a tour I did with my adult daughter.

Great and knowledgeable tour guide (forgot his name, bald and early 30s), Only my wife and i, but he fetched us in hotel, drove us in a small van, and went around very interesting places in Nice. Very good English. Dropped us after in the famous market place to shop for souvenirs, had lunch etc. Half day worth it tour!

I did a half day tour around Nice recently and had a wonderful experience. Small group of 3 our guide Caroline was engaging and knowledgeable about the area. She took us to amazing look out points and to see a beautiful cathedral. This relaxing experience was the perfect way to see Nice. I even went back to the Henri Matisse museum because it was pointed out on tour. Would definitely recommend.
