Full description
Start this experience with pickup from your driver/guide at 2:00 PM at your hotel or private address in Nice. On this 4-hour tour, you will see the highlights of the city of Nice, beginning with a visit to the Russian Orthodox Cathedral to marvel at its magnificent architecture.
 
Then, visit the varying but equally charming neighbourhoods of the city. Discover Cimiez, the bourgeois district containing Regina Palace, where Queen Victoria stayed. Venture into the Chagall and Matisse museums as well as the Franciscan Monastery of Cimiez. Your guide will then take you to admire a panoramic view of Nice at the Bay of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat, which offer spectacular views.
 
Next, visit the Confiserie Florian where artisans transform the best fruits and prettiest flowers of the region into sweets. Visit Old Nice and breathe in the atmosphere of southern France at the flower market and the flea market. Pass by cafés and chic boutiques in the center of Nice and climb up the castle hill to see the fabulous gardens and another panoramic view of Nice, Saint-Tropez and the French Alps. Finish off your experience with a tasting of specialty Niçoise treat.

Tour was not necessary

Tour was not necessary. You can do it riding on their public transportation. Good thing the guide Mr. Ruslan was very kind entertaining. He made the trip worth it.

OK tour, but misleading description.

This tour is sold as a guided tour but in reality you just get a driver to drop you off at some of the city's main locations, where you eventually spend time on your own. At the most, you get name and few details on the locations you visit. Our driver was very kind and punctual. The viewpoints we visited were amazing, though once the tour was over we went through the description and realised we missed to visit some of the sightseeings! And more specifically, as from description: "[...]Your guide will then take you to admire a panoramic view of Nice at the Bay of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat, which offer spectacular views. Next, visit the Confiserie Florian [...]". We did NOT get any further east than Nice harbour, so no views at Villafranche, St.Jean Cap Ferrat and neither did we visit the Confiserie Florian! My two stars are for the driver and the snack at the end, the rest is almost a fraud and we could have done the same with UBER at half of the price.
