Full description
The stunning Old Town of Nice (known locally as Le Vieux Nice) is a lovely honeycomb of narrow streets, dotted with beautiful baroque churches, boutique shops and charming restaurants — hidden gems can be found around every corner. It’s a hive of activity with vibrant squares, buzzing both day and night. After meeting your guide at the Place Massena Square fountain, head past architectural masterpieces such as Nice Town Hall, the Opera House, and Palais de la Prefecture. Explore the Palace of Justice Square and Rosetti Square, where Nice Cathedral is situated, before discovering the bustling Cours Saleya market. Amble down the famous Promenade des Anglais, the Port of Old Nice, Belanda’s Tower, and the final destination of the historic Castle Hill. During the tour, you will have a short break at a flower market, where you can learn about local delicacies and purchase handcrafted gifts and flowers. Here, you can also take a quick trip to the restroom to freshen up before continuing the tour.

Chris was a great guide - extremely knowledgeable & has a very good sense of humor! The walk was extremely insightful & he gave us some great tips about not just the old town but also about the entire Côte d’Azur - he even helped us after the trip - we recommend him to whoever wants to have a great walking experience in Nice!

We absolutely enjoyed the Nice tour with our guide Chris! His historical and inside knowledge was great and he seemed to really enjoy doing these tours, which made it great fun for us as well. We're very greatful for his recommendations (traditional niçois food as well as shops, bars and restaurants). We were also quite lucky, as we had a (totally unexpected) exclusive tour, since we were the only ones who booked for this day. We really, really enjoyed it!

Excellent overview

We were 2 couples with only 1 day to explore Nice and our tour with Chris was a perfect way to do it. Chris kept us interested and engaged throughout the tour with historical facts and humorous stories. We really felt as if we saw the best of Nice in this easy paced and well thought out tour. Chris is a natural guide who will do well in this business.
