This tour was excellent! Our group’s guide was very knowledgeable of the area and the history. The sites were amazing and the food was superb! I was able to bike up the biggest hills with ease on the e-bike. Originally I was worried about 5 hours on a bike and going up the hills as I’m not in the best shape. The tour went by fast with plenty of breaks and I was able to navigate the hills with ease on the e-bikes. Highly recommend! There are some areas that are down hill that are a little fast. It was a thrilling experience and easy to navigate; however if you have a fear of going fast on a bike be aware the end of the tour has a lot of down hill action (up to 30-35km/h) just a make sure your bike has good brakes.

Zara is such a fun and informative tour guide and offered a lot of insight during our drive to Eze and Monaco. We had enough time at each location to take in the sights and sound. Our favourite part of the trip would be Eze and seeing how quaint the village is. Next to that, the perfume factory was also interesting. That said, she also explained a lot about Monaco why they build the roads the way they are and offered insight into all the nifty things. I highly recommend Zara! Thank you!

Great discovery of the Hautes Niçois Instructive comments from our guide Also a tasty ride which allowed us to taste the specialties of Nice (pissaladière - chard tart - pan bagnat - socca - ice cream) High quality electric bike In short, an exciting 5 hours

Great tour. Our guide, Marion was wonderful. I enjoyed this small group type tour. Eze was amazing. Monoco and Monte Carlo never disappoint. I highly recommend the tour.

One of the best ways to see Nice. The small picnic lunch is exceptional experience on a secluded beautiful beach.
