Really fun way to get oriented to Nice. Nicholas was a great guide. Went on the 2 hour tour with my 3 teen / adult kids. Glad we did this rather than the 1 hour tour, in think that would have been too short. The Segways were quite easy to ride after a few minutes and felt really comfortable by the end. The have a little bag on the front so you could put a small bag in there if you needed to. Enjoyed seeing the old town and riding through the small streets, then up the hill. Had already done a free walking tour but still enjoyed doing the Segway tour. Really recommend this experience.

Hourly On Time departure point and pickup locations Clearly marked. Very Clean bus. One of the drop-off locations was closed. This provided ample time to tour the town, take memorable postcard type pictures and grab lunch at a local restaurant on the water. If you on the bus top deck, watch for low hanging tree branches.

An excellent tour around the attractions of Nice. A great way to see the coast and have someone else guide you round. The driver was an excellent navigator around tight corners!

Went well learned a few interesting facts. Audio guide was entertaining and included audio effects.

This was a great way to see the layout of the city.
