Private boat tour. We were received very nicely. The boss himself rushed across the sea with us and his boat, although it was more like gliding. The solar boat lay very calmly on the waves. We received a lot of information about the surrounding hotels/museums/villas. About the development of the area and which celebrities or celebrities were already there. The one hour was very entertaining. You could do whatever you wanted on the boat "It's your boat. Feel free to do whatever you want. You can walk around or put your feet in the water." Unfortunately, the sun didn't come out until we were done with the tour, but nobody can do anything about that. We would definitely do it again!

Very nice 1-hour tour with interesting information. In addition, nice experience to cruise with this small solar boat. Nothing for speed freaks but great for connoisseurs. Absolutely recommendation.

We enjoyed every minute of this wonderful tour and the solar powered boat. This is a relaxing, informative tour that is different from anything else you will do. Go solar!

Had a great time on the silent boat! Our guide was knowledgable about the area and pointed out significant properties on the coast!

This was a really nice, different type of activity to do in Nice. Very relaxing way to start the day.
