Traveling to Europe, I would tell EVERYONE to put FOOD TOUR first on your list of things to do when you arrive. Start with this tour ... you will find out about the city and things you can do, while tasting all of the authentic foods of the city. You will have lots of time to chat and learn while you try delectable varieties of foods. Our guide Marion was a GEM! She is very knowledgeable, sweet and very fluent in English. Enjoyed getting to know her personally and getting to know the city of Nice. FAVORITE tour of Nice! Merci Marion!

Amazing tour. Marion our guide was knowledgeable of the history and food of old Nice. We walked the market place, visited an old family run candy shop and shared our purchases over lunch in an olive oil shop after a tasting. This tour did not disappoint. I highly recommend.

This food tour was simply amazing, great food, beautiful markets and our guide Marion was the absolute best. Marion is full of enthusiasm and a complete delight to spend a few hours with. The final stop was at a little shop for olive oil tasting and she put together the most wonderful cheese tray for us all to enjoy with some tasty wine. Merci beaucoup Marion for making this tour a highlight of our week long trip to France.

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.

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!
