I loved this tour! I learnt so much and Chris’ enthusiasm and deep love of his city shine through. He is an engaging and friendly guide with a wealth of knowledge. He also gave great restaurant tips and best of all, his lovely Mum baked a treat for us. I highly recommend this tour.

I have just landed in Nice and wanted to get myself familiar with the area…. So what a better way to quickly go around the city? SEGWAY from Mobilboard. An amazing experience, lovely people to deal with at Mobilboard and specially our guide Tristain.

A really nice experience with a committed and knowledgeable guide who, in comprehensible English, made the trip a really good experience. The trip took place and 32 degrees heat, so remember water and good shoes

The tour was great. Chris was a great guide and, since he is a real Niçois, drew the group's attention to many details that are not in any travel guide. You can tell he's passionate about his city.

We really enjoyed the walking tour, Chris was a great guide, we learnt a lot abouth the city, and felt like we had a really good feel for it afterwards. The pizzalediere was a great touch.
