What To Expect

The cuisine of Provençe boasts a unique fusion of flavors, blending the rich complexity of French food with rustic simplicity borrowed from neighboring Italy. With countless eateries and shops, Nice is bursting with this authentic flavor, if you know where to look. Make your way to the heart of old town, known as Vieux Nice, to meet your local foodie guide. Learn about the area’s history and Italian influence as you wander through narrow lanes and past charming sidewalk cafes. 

Along the way, stop in an assortment of local markets and specialty food shops hand-picked for their variety and authenticity. Sample Provençal cuisine such as a pissaladière onion tart, stuffed vegetables called petits farcis and a Niçoise salad sandwich served on fresh-baked pain de campagne. Taste locally produced cheeses, olive oil, and wine, plus a sweet almond candy known as calisson. During tastings, chat with your guide and shop proprietors to learn how to incorporate local flavor into your cooking at home.

In between delicious dishes, visit other local highlights including a Baroque church, the colorful Cours Saleya flower market, and Castle Hill for fantastic sea and city views. After walking, nibbling and sipping, say farewell to your guide near Nice’s Place Rossetti.

Marian was a wonderful guide. So nice and bubbly. Everyone in the group enjoyed her. The food and wine was excellent!
Best tour in Nice
Robin_L, Oct 2021
Much more than a tasting food tour, our guide, Frances, was really engaging with a deep knowledge and passion for not just the local food but also the history of Nice. Excellent samplings in lovely and varied locations. Relaxed, informative and friendly.
Great experience!
Eric_P, Oct 2021

Rip Off Company
Thomas_H, Sep 2021
Most memorable experience was arriving at the pick up point for 09:30. At 09:45 got email stating tour was cancelled. We had travelled from Menton to Nice, one hour. This company offered a refund & a free tour next day. I could not avail of either. This company pretend to be french, they are not french. They are Rip off Merchants. I plan to flood Trip Adviser with my experience. If you like rip off, this is the tour provider for you. Tom Hyland
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Dear Tom, I understand your deep anger. Please accept my apologies. I mixed up your activity with another one in the calendar. Your card has been refunded and my offer for a free tour is still pending in case you visit Nice again. Best regards, Marion.
Great tour
Brianne_D, Aug 2021
Great experience. Was able to try things that I wouldn't have picked out myself especially the fresh market
Welcome to Nice’s good food
Thomas_K, Aug 2021
Learning about Nice’s history with a food source twist was enjoyable and informative. Visiting iconic establishments and the market to sample local chocolates, tarts, fruits, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and, yes, even socca showed the range of local foods. Our guide was pleasant, considerate and informative. She made it a wonderful experience. I would love to do it again but I ate too much.
Highly recommend
RaeLin_M, Aug 2021
Great experience. Very COVID friendly as the tour guide avoided large crowds and had frequent hand washing. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area, and the food was amazing. I very highly recommend this tour if you are in Nice.
Great food and eine and fun anecdotes
Annika_M, Aug 2021
We were a small group of people from around the world. We Loved the little anecdotes Marion provided about the city and about the local food. The wine was excellent and the different and unique food was fun to try. We would absolutely recommend this tour for everyone visiting the beautiful city of Nice and will come back ourselves for another tour with Marion.

History and Tasty bites in Nice
Susan_H, Jul 2021
Francis was an extraordinary guide! She was so interesting, knowledgeable & friendly. I am a solo traveler who has taken many (!) food tours and this one was one of the best. I recommend it highly. The tasting were small & light and will leave you with an experience unique to nice. You won’t leave stuffed or hungry but you will leave happy!

Marion, our guide, was fabulous. Very personable and friendly. Very informative too. She brought us to a number of shops where we had a very nice selection of different local bites and some sips of wine. A great experience in Old Nice
