Isobel was very good. The drive was great and she showed me things I thought I had already seen on my own. She views and background were much better than my solo. Her English was good.

A bit boring
Majid_K
, Sep 2021
Me and 2 friends signed up for this tour, I went to many guided tours before however I felt this on was very bland and a bit boring. The guide himself was a very nice guy but the tour was mostly like a few rides and then we had to go around by our selves and come back which we could have done easier and much cheaper. Overall experience, I don’t think it was a good value for money and can be improved a lot and be a lot more exciting.

Picked up in the morning for 1:00 tour. No notification. Not much history or information shared unless I asked about what we were seeing out the window. Expected more dialogue and some history.

Our tour guide was great. She really knows her history snd her pride for Nice is evident. We wound up being the only two people on the tour so it was very personal. Nice is a beautiful historic city with a lot t see snd do. This tour was a great overview of the city and its history.

This was a great tour of the city of Nice, We saw such excellent views, and were able to take such wonder photos. I don't remember the name of our tour operator, but he was excellent. A much if you are in Nice, and want to get a panoramic view. Again, I would like to add Viator, need to update or add more options for "What sort of visit was this?, as this was a tour I did with my adult daughter.

Great and knowledgeable tour guide (forgot his name, bald and early 30s), Only my wife and i, but he fetched us in hotel, drove us in a small van, and went around very interesting places in Nice. Very good English. Dropped us after in the famous market place to shop for souvenirs, had lunch etc. Half day worth it tour!

I did a half day tour around Nice recently and had a wonderful experience. Small group of 3 our guide Caroline was engaging and knowledgeable about the area. She took us to amazing look out points and to see a beautiful cathedral. This relaxing experience was the perfect way to see Nice. I even went back to the Henri Matisse museum because it was pointed out on tour. Would definitely recommend.

Our family took this tour during our 1st full day in Nice. It gave us a great overview of the City which helped allow us to better plan where we wanted to spend our few free days. Our tour guide was awesome she was able to get us into the Russian Orthodox church for a quick viewing. She also gave us short walking tours around the Roman ruins and Castle Hill. As a life-long Nice resident, she was able to provide us with lots of great commentary along the way. We are very glad that we chose this tour!!!

The tour was a delightful treat for all of us first timers in Nice. Even though the day was dour due to rain and cloud cover, it was total fun and the credit goes to Zara, our guide. There was not a dull moment and we loved the discussions including History, Culture, religion, parenting and pets/animals. We first went to the Top of the Castle Hill for the panoramic view of city and later drove to the Franciscan Monastery/Jardin, Old town etc. In addition, we got to know of the places like fleur marche, Indian restaurants, places for outing. We also got to know the specialties of the region like flowers esp lavendar and we did shop for the same later. With the time well spent, we will surely remember the experience for a long time.

First off the tour guide was just rushing us, then pointing out quite a bit of stuff in the vehicle on route to our next stop which is good and bad. Bad because we want pictures and to take in the sites and how can we do that if its a drive-by? Good because it means there's a lot to see, but an easy way to fix this is just make it a half hour or so longer. After the tour was over I basically re-walked the vehicle portion of the tour so I could get so better pictures and really look at the sites.

This was a good tour and we really enjoyed ourselves. We saw an amazing Russian orthodox church, some of the neighborhoods of Nice and a cute chocolate factory. We had about an hour in old town to shop and have lunch. The tour picked us up at the hotel and that was nice. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour for a good overview of the city of Nice.

Booked this tour 3 days prior to taking it and it was a great decision. Jennifer was a knowledgeable and great guide. She picked us up at our hotel and drove us around and was informative on the different sights in town. We loved it. Lucky for us no other people had booked it so we ended up getting a private tour. Highly recommended, ask for Jennifer.
