What people are saying about French Riviera

Who said that biking was not fun?

One of the best experiences. The guide Arthur was very knowledgeable and spent time with each of us, and made sure everyone kept up with the group. The day before we were informed that we can get an electrical bike for an extra 10euro in case we are not ready to go up the hills by ourselves which was a great value for our friends and made the journey nicer knowing we had a "safety button" to use for going up the hill if the legs were getting tired. The view is like no other, as it does not compare as the one seen from a car.

A great day with a great guide.

The day is quite leisurely, stopping for drinks and refreshments. The hills are not strenuous with the electrically assisted bikes but it's a good idea that you are quite familiar with riding a bike.

nice with beautiful views. Bicycles do very well, but have a higher entry level than in the Netherlands and that took some getting used to. traffic is more hectic but easy to do

Everything went great. Activity Nice Mobilboard and Hop on Hop off Monaco are highly recommended.

It did not look nice from the outside but the inside is Amazingly beautiful!!!!
