Wonderful. It as not only interesting, but the food tasting was a delicious experience. This tour was very well organized and delivered. I highly recommend it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

This was an awesome Foodies tour. Mariona is absolutely the best. She combines history with a great food experience. You will get to walk with her through the markets and 'Mom and Pop' spots to hear about history and sample the foods of the area. You can visit with the local people and learn so much. We have done many 'Foodie tours' throughout many countries and she by far shines on top. You will not be disappointed at all.

It was a terrific tour definitely a highlight of my visit to Nice. Marion is so knowledgeable and so personable. I had walked through part of the market the day before on my own, but this was totally different. The first part focused on sweet treats and the second on savory and she wove history of Nice and tips about food throughout. We had a chance to sample so many foods. I give this tour 5 stars and recommend it to anyone visiting that beautiful city.

We strolled though the Nice market and the shops in the side street. Our guide was a delightful young woman, very good English, who knew the shop owners and places to do the best tastings. Highly recommended.

Loved it! Marigal sorry don't have the correct spelling was a delight and took the time to educate and show us the produce/flower market. Ended up going back to all the places we visited with her. She patiently explained the various cheeses, olive oils, pasties and what not. Samplings were plentiful and we were filled once the tour was finished. Would definitely try the tour again. PS - when we ran into Marigal the next day she was conducting another tour but taking the group to slightly different places which indicated the versatility of the tour.

The small group Nice Food tour was just excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable, fun and well prepared. The groups was small enough so all could hear and participate. The food choices were great and the history of the cheeses, olive oils, chocolates, wine plus others was very informative. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in the foods of Provence.
