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.

DO THIS TOUR! If you want a wonderful culinary tour of the old town of Nice, with a very lovely and knowledgeable guide Marion, then you need to do this tour. I read almost every review before we made the purchase. Tip: Don't eat breakfast! We met at 9.30am, and the tour continued until 2pm : We didn't have to pay for anything outside of the tour price itself which was a pleasant surprise unless you want to buy items along the way yourself, of course! Marion paced us well, wandering the little streets, tasting all that Nice has to offer, giving amazing suggestions for places to eat or visit later. We stopped for coffee after rambling through the market, and the tour rounded out with an amazing Olive Oil tasting Anne was so full of information, and very interesting to listen to!. We got to sit and relax with a glass of Rosé and some of the treats we purchased along the way, and it was nice to chat to Marion and take in all we had experienced that day. She also offers Wine Tasting which we regret not making time to do before we left! DO THIS TOUR, you won't regret it :

Wonderful tour . . .thoroughly enjoyed the history information and the great variety of food. Marion was a delight -- very friendly and informative. She selected foods we all enjoyed and even had a picnic on top of the tower. Will definitely contact Viator in the future.

Had a great experience with Marianne! She was highly knowledgeable about the history not only of the food, but also the region which made this a wonderful learning experience. The picnic at the top of the Castle Hill was the perfect ending to the tour. The tour went at the perfect pace and I ended up trying many foods I would not have tried on my own. A must for learning the city and the foods of the region!!

Always look to do a tour like this early in our stay, to learn more about local foods and specialities, and how and when they are eaten. What to look for when buying and where to buy. Only 8 in the group and very knowledgable guide, learnt a lot about Nice and its people, its history with heaps of amazing tastings along the way make sure you don't eat much before you go. Certainly found it very informative for the rest of our 11 day stay in Nice!

This was probably the best food tour I have ever been on! It was great how we visited some high end specialty shops and then visited the market where we tried some street food. We finished up with some wine and cheese. I loved how some history was included our guide was very informative.

This tour was very well organized. Our tour guide Marianne was very good, friendly, well versed and pleased everyone. We were ten in the group and I believe everyone was content. As we went through the marché Marianne picked fruits from the region so we could taste them later. We stopped to get the local Socca and other munchies made from garbanzo beans. Later we sat for coffee or tea and tasted all the items she had bought for us. Off again, pointing out different buildings and giving us some historical facts. Again we stopped to pick up cheeses, stuffed veggies and other foods. Our last stop was at an olive oil shop. It was wonderful. After the tasting we had a very nice variety of food items we shared with wine. It was very good tour.

Brilliant food tour, slow paced, food filled and lovely guide who spoke English better than me in a fabulous French accent.
Highly recommend this activity, added lots of pictures to tripadvisor where I also gave 5 stars.

We really enjoyed this food tour. We can not recommend it enough.
Marion Was great, she taught us all about Nice, through the food. We learnt about the history of Nice and the local language, why the food is such.
The tour was nicely informal and we really got to know our guide, who was willing and able to answer all of our questions. Marion was very informative and gave us great tips on where to eat in Nice.
It was really great to be shown around by a local and to try local foods.
I would recommend this to anyone whom is interested in food in any way.

I had found this trip on Viator, and was excited about it's high ratings. Needless to say, the ratings are spot on. It was fairly simple to meet Marion at the meeting place in the middle of town, and it was off to the market we went. After sampling a few things in the market, we sat down in an outdoor cafe to sample some of the things we had found so far along with a coffee, tea, or water. The local snacking bread Socca I found interesting, and we'll try to make it at home soon. Then it was back to town to tour some of the streets, make some more purchases at some more food vendors, then we headed over to a local olive oil store for an extensive tasting. While the tasting was going on, Marion set up a very nice snacking table, and we finished the day noshing on all of the remaining purchases with a glass of the local wine. We found Marion very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She has a very outgoing personality, and wants to show her customers the true local flavors of Nice. I have the highest recommendation for this tour. She also has a wine tasting tour that she offers twice a week, which my group couldn't make, but I think would be equally as fun and a great way to learn about the local wines that are made.

Marion was fabulous at explaining the region of Nice, and explaining the food from the area, including the history, which helped explain the reason for the foods. She was so wonderfully pleasant and funny, we could have spent all day with her! I would highly recommend this tour. It was easy to find the meeting place in plenty of time from Villefranche Sur Mer. We took the train to Nice Ville and then walked to the fountain, about 15-20 minutes. Great food, great variety, made us all love Nice.
