This hour-long boat trip is a great way to get an overview of Nice and its neighboring town, Villefranche-Sur-Mer, from the water. The boat is the perfect size for a fairly small group, and it never feels crowded or uncomfortable. The information is given in both English and French; interesting historical facts along with current pop cultural info.

Super nice to see Villefranche-sur-Mer and Nice from the water. In English you get a lot of information and fun facts. During the trip you will also be entertained by a charming captain. A really nice tee.

Super nice experience with humorous and adorable staff! On the other hand it was not easy for me to find the buibui to exchange my ticket but fortunately I continued to walk and bingo

This was a magnificent cruise. The views from the Mediterranean Sea of Nice & VilleFranche Sur Mer were breathtaking.
