What people are saying about Nice

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.

My daughter and I took this relaxing boat tour. The guide was really kind as we had to reschedule. Because of the terms, he was not obligated to refund our money or reschedule, so we were very appreciative of his patience with our schedule. Unfortunately, we got lost (my fault), so our tour was abbreviated. This is a nice ride if you interested in a quiet tour of this area or perhaps taking a dip with a friend. Although there really was not much to see, it was nice nonetheless.

Laurent picked us up at the hotel on time. Laurent is a super great guide. He was very friendly, competent and polite. He told us great stories about the individual stations. Not only the coast of Provance but also the "inner" Provance offers great travel destinations. We even saw a whole group of sea head eagles at the Grand Canyon.

Loved the tour! Bikes were very comfortable and new. The E-bikes are a must for the steep hills and make it a breeze. Tour guide, Nicolas, was excellent.

Was a great experience! Thanks Nico, gave us a great tour
