This tour was a favourite of our time in Nice. Our tour guide, Marion, was amazing. She provided useful and interesting information, was most friendly and thoughtful and our whole family found it fun and interesting. My grandsons learned a lot and wished that school could be more like this tour!!!!! We highly recommend this tour to all.
The Tour was organised well, introducing us not only to local cuisine but a bit oif history of Nice as well. Claudia's choice of local specialities was spot on, adjusted to the preferences of the group and helped us to plan the rest of our gastronomic adventure in Nice, including selection of restaurants and bistro's
The Small -group Nice Food tour was an interesting tour. It is filled with all kind of surprises . Our tour guide Dorothy was particular tentative and add a charming delight to the tour. Having said that we highly recommend the tour.
This tour was awesome! Although, I wish I had gone on this tour at the beginning of my trip or known that the sweaters, jackets, belts, leather bags and purses were a must buy. I bought all of these things and wish that I had packed light going to Nice so that I would have enough space to buy more. The next time that I go to Nice, this will be one of my first Group trips or I'll be sure to budget my finances so that I can buy more- the leather goods, sweaters and accessories are beautiful and good quality!

This wasn't quite what we expected. Most of the class time was spent on chopping things for a Niçoise salad. I understand that's the typical salad of the region, but to us a salad does not constitute cooking. The other items we made stuffed vegetables and a chocolate lava cake were tasty, but neither really what we pictured as French cuisine when we signed up for this class. Also, the 3-course meal was supposed to include a starter, main course, and dessert- there was no main course, we didn't cook any meat or entree at all. We didn't get to touch any actual cooking implements at all stove or oven, the instructor did all of that. The instructor just told us to 'chop this' and such, didn't actually explain the steps or why things needed to be done a certain way. And we weren't even given the recipes to take away with us, so we don't have a way to duplicate the dishes if we wanted.
Overall, it was still an interesting experience I guess, but not what we thought we signed up for.
Doing what: Provençal Cooking Class in Nice
First and foremost, what we wanted was a tour that emphasized foods, candies, baked goods and wines that are either unique or that are particularly noteworthy for Nice and the surrounding area. We also wanted pointers on where to shop for such things and which restaurants provided good examples. Both my wife and I thought the tour was well designed and was exactly what we were looking for. Our tour guide, Claudia, was excellent in several areas. She is well organized, personable and she asks questions of us attendees so that she could address our interests. She could not have done a better job from our perspective.
My wife and I loved this tour SO much - in fact, this is the second time we've taken it! We took the tour about a year and a half ago, and we decided to take it again on our second trip to Nice. Claudia was a fantastic tour guide and the food we tried was outstanding. Plus, the walking history tour along the way is super informative. We highly recommend this tour if you want to see the best of old-town Nice!

We have learned to look for such a tour on Viator when we travel to a new place. And we try to book it for shortly after our arrival: it is a great introduction to the charm and character of the location. This tour is no exception. It was very high quality, as we have come to expect. Dorothy was a great guide who mixed in history, architecture, food, culture, and modern life of Nice. The food is simply great. The shop owners and purveyors were friendly and skilled. It was very nice to be in a small group. Our group was diverse and very friendly. We went back to several of the shops after the tour to make additional purchases for gifts to others and to ourselves.
Our guide Claudia was wonderful and our tasting of Nicoise and Provencal cuisines, olive oils and wines were second to none. We would recommend Claudia and this tour to our friends and we would take the tour again ourselves on our next trip to Nice, France! Joseph and Roxann, Broomfield, Colorado USA
Claudia our guide was amazing! She was flexible, shared tremendous knowledge of the city and the food, and took us to some wonderful places - we had a blast and enjoyed everything that we tried. Bought a lot of great foods to take home!
Amazing, if you do one thing in Nice do this tour foodies will love this! Tasted such a variety of food, culture and history in one morning. Our guides knowledge was superb, so enthusiastic and answered our many questions while staying on theme. If your staying on in Nice for a few days you will appreciate the food markets and historic tour of the old city. There was also a high level of engagement with the group, lots of laughs - a winner!
Kimberley was a great guide and was able to tailor the tour to accommodate our 2 less mobile companions. We enjoyed the markets and all the food and oil tastings. We'd recommend for anyone who likes food. Don't have a big breakfast beforehand though.
