We loved this tour through Old Nice and its markets and landmarks. Our guide was absolutely delightful, caring, efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke excellent English. The tour went over the time frame by at least an hour, maybe more. I'm sorry I don't recall her name as I write this, but you will see her smiling face in my pictures. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time visiting St. Jeannet and The Frogs House for the cooking experience. All of the other participants were overnight guests at the Inn and made the experience even more fun. Corinne has a beautiful spot and the drive to and wander around St. Jeannet were wonderful as well.
The recipes were fairly simple so you don't need to be a gourmet chef to enjoy the experience and sharing the wonderful meal with new friends in such a beautiful setting was a wonderful experience.
One note if you aren't staying at the Frogs House, St. Jeannet is a bit removed from Nice we took the train to St. Laurent and then easily found an Uber to take us to the Inn.

We enjoyed the Nice Food Tour on our first full day in Nice it was a nice introduction to the old town and market which is amazing.
We would have liked a little more leisurely pace to the tour it felt very rushed and we didn't have time to explore the market which closed before our tour was ending or some of the other shops along the way.
Dorothy, our guide, was very knowledgeable about Nice, the foods and places around old town and the olive oil tasting and lunch served at the end of the tour from items gathered during our shopping trip was just beautiful.
Great introduction to the city.
We had a wonderful time on our food tour of Nice! Our tour guide, Marion, was amazing. She was friendly and full of useful and interesting information. Our whole family found it fun - my 8 year old daughter learned a lot and is still taking about the delicious food we tasted! We highly recommend this tour to all.
Our guide Marion was spectacular! We have been coming to Nice since 1984, and were with friends who did not know Nice. We chose the food tasting tour as a way to get to know old Nice in a different way, through its food. The reviews were all positive. All six of us had a wonderful time. Marion was so enthusiastic and passionate about the foods of Nice, very knowledgable. I just cannot say enough positive comments about the experience. I recommend this to first time visitors and repeat visitors alike. It was FUN!! Definitely ask for Marion!
Our guide was very knowledgable. We were able to visit some of the finest specialities food stores in Nice. We had great pastries for breakfast and ended ur tour with gourmet olive oil and appetizers at a beautiful olive oil store.
Out host Dorothy, was bright and cheerful, sharing lots of history and her knowledge of Nice, throughout the tour. All of our tasting samples were delicious. We really enjoyed being able to sit and have coffe and sample our sweet goods and being able to chat with other tour members half way of the tour. Then being able to do the same at the end with the savoury samples and a glass of wine at the end. A great experience!
The walking tour of Nice was one of my favorite activities while we were there. Dorothy, our guide, was an absolute joy. She gave us historical information about the area as well as introduced us to regional specialties. She pointed us to the better places to get this fare. Another highlight of this tour was the olive oil tasting. It was evident the shopkeeper was passionate about their products and her enthusiasm was contagious. Schedule earlier in your trip than later. Loved it!
This was one of the best things we did while we were in Nice. The instructor was so nice and knowledgable. We appreciated her obvious love for French baking and we will recommend this activity to anyone going to the area. We even plan to make the pastries again at home.

Very, very good tour. Small group was limited to just 10 which was a perfect size for this experience. Our guide and owner of the tour company was fantastic. Happy to answer any questions and was very passionate about her food and wine. Finished off the tour with picnic in the park overlooking Nice with nice glass or two of Champagne and a lovely Rose. High would highly recommend that you do this tour. Great experience!!!
Three words about Tam: She is amazing! Tam was our guide for the market tour and cooking class and she just exceeded our expectations. When I booked this, I didn't know that she was a season 3 contestant on France's version of MasterChef. In a country were their cousin is taken so seriously, this is actually a big deal because the show is extremely competitive. For example, she was one of 20 contestants chosen out of 24,000 that applied. Tam is an expert, but more importantly, she is patient and was able to communicate well with us with her basic culinary English. My wife and I were the only ones to attend the lesson and we were able to pick our products with Tam. We then went back to her business location, which included a beautiful kitchen prepared our meal. We had a genuine French meal and it was delicious. What we cooked was simple, we assisted with the cooking, and Tam took the lead to make sure that our meal was first class. The entire experience took about 4 hours, but it was well worth the price. The lunch was the best that we had in the 10 days in France. It was simply excellent!
