Really enjoyed the boat trip, a lovely way to appreciate Villefranche & Nice scenery. We didn’t find it easy to find the ticket office, would be good to have some signage from the road. Good commentary on the boat, be there early for a good seat, people were arriving from 2pm.

The boat ride to Villefranche Bay was delightful. Beautiful, amazing views, some history and enjoyable narration. Wonderful to be on the water. A must to get a view from the water and to add a dimension to time in Nice. Four of us enjoyed it very much, including the ones who live in France and have spent time in Nice and Villefranche before. Just wonderful, fun cruise.

AMAZING! Incredible value, the captain and guides where very Nice;) and the tour included a great variety of locations both historic and referencing pop/music culture. They also pointed out many locations which I probably would have not sought out otherwise 10/10. Would have gladly paid triple for this tour. Thank you!
