Fantastic tour! Our guide was Nejib, who knows the history of Nice very well. He showed us the hiddem gems of the old town, and also beutiful panoramas from the Castle Hill. After the tour, he sent us a lot of useful recommendations where to eat (restaurants, roof top bars) and also what to see. We booked this tour very late (previous day at 8.00 pm), but that was not a problem. Nejib came to the meeting point in the morning. I recomend this tour if you want to see this beautiful city and learn more about it's history.

Es war eine super Tour und die Zeit ist nur so verflogen. Wir haben viel über die Geschichte Nizzas gelernt und schöne neue Orte entdeckt. Ein großes Danke schön an unseren engagierten und freundlichen Tourguide Nejib. Sogar im Nachgang hat er uns noch Empfehlungen geschickt und war immer bereit für Fragen ☺️
