What people are saying about French Riviera

This eBike tour was a highlight of our time in beautiful Nice, and Kent made the ride such fun. Just a bit of history, but mainly a gorgeous, varied ride along the coast, up through the hills, with a stop for a drink at the harbor in lovely Villefranche sur mer. The viewpoint stops were breathtaking, the bikes were comfortable and easy to use. We highly recommend Nissalentours! (And Igloo the big, fluffy white dog is a wonderful greeter at the shop.)

Carmela was an excellent guide. Very friendly and everything we tasted was delicious, and we had a pretty local experience. I can really recommend the tour and her as a guide. I would love to do another tour with her in the future. We even celebrated the birthday of a relative without informing in advance, and she managed to organize a great surprise. Merci, thanks a lot, muchas gracias Carmela :)
