Full marks Chris for a fascinating tour which you led with enthusiasm and much knowledge as a Nice born guide. The route was great and your commentary was excellent. We saw and learned far more from you about Nice, its culture, history and present-day activities than we could have done from guide books. The pace was perfect, as was the timing, such as to get us to the firing of the castle canon at noon. You had lots of anecdotes which helped us to get so much from our brief stay in your wonderful city. The tasty samples of pissaladière made by your mother were very much appreciated. Very many thanks, we have no hesitation in recommending your tour to others.

Chris was an incredible tour guide, knowledgeable, charismatic & engaging with the group! Unusually for a tour guide, he was Niçoise, so knew all the local gems & customs! I highly recommend to take this tour on your first day to Nice, as you’ll appreciate & understand your surroundings & be able to plan your trip accordingly.

Great way to start your Nice vacation. Chris is an amazing guide who is passionate and knowledgeable of the riveria. He also gives great recommendations on places to eat and see in the region.

Fun and lively tour with a guide who had a ton of local knowledge and knew how to keep a tour group entertained and informed. Restaurant tips was a welcome bonus.

Our guide flo is excellent. Very knowledgeable and strongly recommend to anyone who is new to Nice
