Great and knowledgeable tour guide (forgot his name, bald and early 30s), Only my wife and i, but he fetched us in hotel, drove us in a small van, and went around very interesting places in Nice. Very good English. Dropped us after in the famous market place to shop for souvenirs, had lunch etc. Half day worth it tour!
Our family took this tour during our 1st full day in Nice. It gave us a great overview of the City which helped allow us to better plan where we wanted to spend our few free days. Our tour guide was awesome she was able to get us into the Russian Orthodox church for a quick viewing. She also gave us short walking tours around the Roman ruins and Castle Hill. As a life-long Nice resident, she was able to provide us with lots of great commentary along the way. We are very glad that we chose this tour!!!
The tour was a delightful treat for all of us first timers in Nice. Even though the day was dour due to rain and cloud cover, it was total fun and the credit goes to Zara, our guide. There was not a dull moment and we loved the discussions including History, Culture, religion, parenting and pets/animals. We first went to the Top of the Castle Hill for the panoramic view of city and later drove to the Franciscan Monastery/Jardin, Old town etc. In addition, we got to know of the places like fleur marche, Indian restaurants, places for outing. We also got to know the specialties of the region like flowers esp lavendar and we did shop for the same later. With the time well spent, we will surely remember the experience for a long time.
First off the tour guide was just rushing us, then pointing out quite a bit of stuff in the vehicle on route to our next stop which is good and bad. Bad because we want pictures and to take in the sites and how can we do that if its a drive-by? Good because it means there's a lot to see, but an easy way to fix this is just make it a half hour or so longer. After the tour was over I basically re-walked the vehicle portion of the tour so I could get so better pictures and really look at the sites.
