Jennifer was amazing! She was very personable and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Nice from her. When a member of our tour’s bike didn’t seem to work, she traded bikes with her. Beautiful views of a beautiful place.

This is such an amazing tour from Nice to Villefrance and back. First we picked up our lunch at a delicious cafe to bring with us and collect our bikes. We rode through some gorgeous areas, parks, Fort du Mont Alban on our way to Villefranche. The tour operator was so friendly and fun with great knowledge of the history of the area. We rode to Villefranche and had our lunch at the beautiful beach. The bikes were easy to operate and great to have when going uphill during the ride. We zipped our way through the historic lanes of Villefranche before heading back to Nice. I highly recommend doing this tour!! It was such a fun day that I will always remember.

We LOVED it!!!! Our guide, Jenn, was so sweet, knowledgeable, and appropriately ensured our safety. Nice and the surrounding area we toured are beyond words beautiful. I have always heard amazing things about it, but this far exceeding even my high expectations. Also, the picnic lunch from the local bakery was excellent. The electric bikes are so awesome - we still get exercise but get a kick to help you get up the hills and you can cover a large are approximately 15 miles. I give it my absolute highest recommendation.

Fantastic tour and great fun on these electric bikes - no need to worry about fitness and they make it so easy especially on those hills. Started our tour close to the popular evening al fresco dining area in Nice, heading east towards the harbour and unto the road heading uphill to view points over looking the city. Our tour guide Jen was great - enthusiastic, informative and made sure all of us were happy, safe and confident, especially at some of the road junctions. Once out of NIce, the roads have much less traffic and there is plenty of time to stop and take in some beautiful views and admire the homes of the rich and famous. Lunch Villefranche and a swim if you've brought your gear. Then back towards Nice for a well earned cold beer. Highly recommended tour.

If you are the get up and do something type while on vacation, this is an absolute must! The meeting spot is super easy to find which was helpful because, as you'll see if you go, the shop is buried deep in the twisty allies of Nice and if you didn't have a guide to get there you'd certainly be lost. Absolutely buy lunch at the bakery in the morning! It was very tasty. Wear athletic gear clothing. The bikes are electric but you still have to work to keep them going and you'll work up a sweat for sure. Take a water bottle with you. The shop will give you a full one but you'll want extra because the refilling point is a good ways into the tour. Our guide, Jenny, was wonderful. She explained the bikes in detail and let us test them in the ally so we all felt comfortable on them once we were out on the streets. She set a pace that wasn't too slow for those of us in good shape nor was it too fast for those who aren't currently training for a marathon like us. She made frequent enough stops at amazing vantage points that no one got too overworked and everyone saw a great view. She knew the famous land marks and some lesser known ones.

Colin H

I have been interested in ebikes for a little while so the opportunity to take a tour on one during a recent trip to the south of France seemed perfect. On the day itself it was only myself and my wife Siobhan on the tour so we really did have personal attention. Our tour guide a lovely American Girl call Kristen met us outside the entrance to Opera beach close to the Rusty poles. We were taken to their office and equipped with ebikes and helmets. Our bikes were nearly new Kalkhoff machines with 6 gears and three levels of assistance complete with pannier bags to hold our bits and pieces. We were given instruction how to use the bikes and on general safety. Kristen then took us to a sandwich shop where are we bought our lunch at a discounted rate. The first part of our tour from Nice to Villefranche Sur Mer involved cycling through busy streets and out onto the Promenade des Anglais.The route was quite hilly in places but assistance given by the ebike made a lot of difference, we were cycling up some pretty mean looking hills without any real problems. We stopped at various points along the route and Kristen pointed out places of interest. We got views of fabulous mansions belonging to the rich and famous. Considering the route we had just cycled we were remarkably fresh and looking forward to our lunch at Villefranche Sur Mer. The route back to Nice was the scenic,flatter but slightly busier road. We really enjoyed the whole ebike tour experience, it's easy to see why they are becoming so popular. I have some cycling experience but Siobhan has little yet we both enjoyed our mornings on the ebikes and didn't feel exhausted at the end of it. Some parts of the tour involve cycling through busy streets and other parts along roads with quickly moving traffic but the majority of the cycle was along quieter roads.Our tour lasted for 4 hours and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which we would most definitely recommend.

Great 4 hour tour with enthusiastic and knowledgeable Rose as our guide. Power in the bikes makes the hills easy and you get to see some stunning views and interesting sights. Great value and well organised. You go to a bakers to buy something for your lunch before you set off bike company has a good deal for you there and have that lunch by the beach at Villefranche. Bikes have bags for your lunch, water, camera etc so you shouldn't have to carry anything else and you can leave any bags in the bike company offices if you need to. No hesitation in recommending.
