Beautiful experience in electric bike with our great guide Grégory. We were able to take a beautiful panoramic tour starting with Nice, taking a break in Villefranche-sur-Mer, touring Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and ending with Mont Baron which offers an exceptional view of Nice and its surroundings. . Do not hesitate to ask your guide for tips such as restaurant addresses etc.

The tour was amazing! Everywhere you looked there was a great view. We got to swim in the water, we went super fast, we saw the beginning of the sunset and the guide explained us about the coast.

Everything perfect nice guide & awesome ambience- however the tour was over before sunset - thus it’s no real sunset-tour Except for that everything was 10/10

It was super nice, the guide / boat driver was great we learned things! Swimming at the top, really an activity that I recommend

A great time with the family A top guide who made the experience really friendly ✨
