Full marks Chris for a fascinating tour which you led with enthusiasm and much knowledge as a Nice born guide. The route was great and your commentary was excellent. We saw and learned far more from you about Nice, its culture, history and present-day activities than we could have done from guide books. The pace was perfect, as was the timing, such as to get us to the firing of the castle canon at noon. You had lots of anecdotes which helped us to get so much from our brief stay in your wonderful city. The tasty samples of pissaladière made by your mother were very much appreciated. Very many thanks, we have no hesitation in recommending your tour to others.

Really fun way to get oriented to Nice. Nicholas was a great guide. Went on the 2 hour tour with my 3 teen / adult kids. Glad we did this rather than the 1 hour tour, in think that would have been too short. The Segways were quite easy to ride after a few minutes and felt really comfortable by the end. The have a little bag on the front so you could put a small bag in there if you needed to. Enjoyed seeing the old town and riding through the small streets, then up the hill. Had already done a free walking tour but still enjoyed doing the Segway tour. Really recommend this experience.

It was nice to be able to look around Nice on an electric bicycle through this tour. You are a wonderful Parisian.

Our guide flo is excellent. Very knowledgeable and strongly recommend to anyone who is new to Nice

The trip was amazing. Good timing with a cool guide Nathan.
