Brilliant tour, we went two on this tour and got to know the surroundings and history about old town and castle hill and these two hours just flew by. Brilliant way to travel and our guide was just wonderful and we had so much fun on these segways. The only thing we would like to do different ourselves was to go to this tour more early on in our vacation since now we need another week to see all these pretty places that was pointed out to us ;) well, i guess it will be in the next trip to Nice. Highly reccomend these 2hours :) Big thanks from Simon & Erna.

Our fondest memory of Nice was this e-bike tour. A relaxed way to get beautiful views and impressions of Nice and the surrounding area. The bikes were in very good condition and our guide was very friendly, personable and had a lot of interesting information ready. Was perfect for us!!!

Ben was a fantastic guide, lots of local knowledge to share. Very prompt for pick up & right from the hotel. Stopped at many beautiful places so we could capture memories of our trip & took pics for us too. Highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Nice.
