Our family of four (plus dog) had the the absolute best time on this tour! Our guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We saw so many wonderful things we never would have seen on our own. They also made several fabulous recommendations that we thoroughly enjoyed. We’ve had guides in the other places who droned on for hours about how bricks were made and completely lost the interest of our children quickly. We didn’t have to worry about that at all with this tour. It was the perfect amount of history / information!

Wonderful way to get a great overview of Nice! We had a chance to traverse through some narrow streets, providing us with a great feel of what the locals experience as well as what tourists share with them. Our driver, Savo, was very knowledgeable about the history of the town and was also able to provide insights into life in Nice. We never could have covered so much ground on foot. The tour was very worthwhile!

I booked the tour spontaneous in the late evening after arriving in Nice. Simon called me after booking and picked me up just minutes later in the restaurant I have just been. He has an audio guide but I prefered speaking to him and he told me details and stories about the buildings and streets in old town nice. Unbelievably he also drives through the tiny alleys and big crowded places. The tour is open to wishes for routes and directions. Thank you, that was a nice Welcome!
