Our English speaking driver met us at the train station in Antibes. He drove us through a number of towns in the French Riviera and was very professional and informative. His 1953 Citroen was in great condition and and comfortable. The three adults in the the back seat were snug but still enjoyed the experience. Our driver was skilled and very cautious. We have been to France a number of times but this was the first time we toured up into the hills surrounding the Riviera. The scenery was fantastic and little towns like Gourdon were a wonderful surprise. We toured a historic candy factory that appealed to all. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Philippe driving. We all felt that next time we would enjoy a full day tour. We all found this to be one of the highlights of our travels to France.

We had a wonderful afternoon being shown the sights of Nice by Océane. She was incredibly patient with us as we learned to use the scooters and had some great information to share with us about the beautiful city. After a panic that I’d booked a tour in the wrong language, Océane and the team were incredibly quick to get back to GetYourGuide when I contacted them in a panic to confirm they do indeed speak English! I also appreciated the follow up text with some additional recommendations for our time there - thank you!

We had a wonderful time with the guide, her name was Ocean. She was very knowledgeable and even took some jaw dropping pictures for us. It was easy to navigate and the scooters were fun. A great way to get around the city. I would recommend this tour, and specifically our guide, to anyone like my wife and I looking for a fun time.

A fun and beautiful tour that was appreciated by both me and my 10-year-old daughter. Highly recommended!

This was a wonderful way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time.
