Thelma was a great guide as we peddled through many areas of the city that we would not have otherwise seen. We love bike tours when we first visit a new city. Such a great way to see the local color and back streets and neighborhoods not normally visited on the large group drive-by type of tours. You can tell Thelma loves her city as she talks about the various sites she takes us to. The bike route is safe and easily navigated by most anyone.

we visited Nice for the 2019 Worlds Triathlon 70.3 as spectators. The first activity was the City Bike Tour. It was the perfect start to the weekend. We learned history, climbed to amazing overlooks and had an entertaining guide Amy. We took our guides advice and suggestions. It made the trip complete.

Our guide Yvette was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about Nice, and took great care of us. She was safety conscious. Highly recommend this tour.

A big thank you goes to Cyd, our informative and gracious tour guide. I'm petite and the e-bike at its lowest seat height was still too high. Cyd found me another bike during the early part of the tour that fit perfectly. Then the 2019 Iron Man was underway in Nice and the final route was unexpectedly closed; Cyd devised an alternate option that allowed us to see Nice from the top. Then, I lost my cell phone as we were preparing to head back to the shop; Cyd helped me find my phone. While a few wrenches were thrown at Cyd, she handled it with kindness and care. She consistently checked in to ensure I was comfortable and in great spirits. Given the number of tours I have experienced around the world, I highly recommend this bike tour because of Cyd. Merci beaucoup, Cyd from your friends in Canada!

The Bike tour was amazing. Well organized, excellent, very knowledgable tour guide! We could not drive up Castle hill because of a private party but stopped to go up with the funicular while our guide watched our bikes. We were compensated with free Gelato afterwards.

This is a review for a tour done on September 8th, 2018. What a fun way to spend an afternoon! The tour goes through Vieux-Ville Nice Old Town Nice, Place Massena, a few other neighborhoods and eventually up Castle Hill done in 3 stages so there are breaks. I have not been on a bike for over a decade and was able to get the hang of it within a few minutes even going through crowded areas. Highly recommend. If you do this tour in the summer, wear sun-block. Water was also provided to us in refillable water bottles. We had a lot of fun!

Electric Bike Trip Panoramic Tour from Nice to Villefranche. This trip was probably the best thing I have done on a holiday! There was a mix up with Viator, who had booked us on the regular tour, but the tour company sorted it out immediately and swapped us to the correct tour. Our guide Jen was great at instructing on bike use and giving clear instructions which meant you felt totally comfortable and safe on the e bike. The views were just breath taking- I will do this trip again if I am ever back in Nice. Thanks to the tour company for a great experience all round.

My sister and i took this tour in May 2017 and it was amazing. The ride up to the view point was a task but without a doubt worth it. Our tour guide was amazing and she recommended an ice-cream shop in the town which was nice. Nice was and still is my favorite city ever.

Fun tour. Great guide and worth the price!

Kim was an excellent guide who provided a fun and informational experience. The ride was a challenge for non-cyclists when going to the high point above the city. Electric bikes would be ideal! Views were great and we were able to cover a great deal of territory that would have not been possible on foot during a short visit to the city.

An amazing bike ride around the old town of Nice. Breathtaking views from top of the mountain overlooking the promenade. To learn about the culture of this city was fab, big thumbs up to the tour guide who even gave us refreshments towards the end. Highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing it.

I wish I could recall our guides name as she was so amazing and really enriched our trip to Nice. We did a morning tour with her I believe she was of Russian decent? and her lively personality and stories of Nice really grabbed us and deepened our understanding of Nice - there is so much more than meets the eye. My fitness level is medium, and this bike tour was definitely manageable and I would highly recommend doing this bike tour when you first arrive in Nice. We received local information about where to eat and visit and were able to avoid the tourist traps and have a more authentic experience. You certainly wont be disappointed with this tour. Thank you, from New Zealand!

Our guide, Katya, was a great leader who showed us so many great spots around Nice, with stories and history. She gave us opportunities to get an insider's view of the old and newer parts of the town, and cared that each person on our tour had a good experience. After we had ridden to the top of Castle Hill, she had cold beverages to hand out!

Kayla was outstanding, full of energy, outgoing and very knowledgeable about Nice. It was a great way to see the city and my 3 teenagers loved the experience. Highly recommend!

Our guide Katya was excellent . She has a wonderful personality and great knowledge about Nice. We spent 4 hours, 1 hour more than planned and she didn't even rush us. This tour is highly recommended for a half day Nice sightseeing!

Fab guide and tour.

A small group of eight, including our lovely guideLorna, made this easy to manage. Except for the climb up to Castle Hill, which was killer!, it was all easy riding. Many stops for informative tidbits and lovely views. I only wish I were going to be in town longer, or I would have also taken the E-bike Tour and the Food Tour.

My sister and I went to Nice and decided to do a bike tour to see and learn more. We couldn't be happier with our choice in bike tour. We were a bit lost in finding the meet up location and were afraid that we were going to miss our tour group but Jenny was patiently waiting for us. We rode along the board walk and around the town while Jenny gave us a nice history of the city of Nice. I would highly recommend this bike tour to anyone. The staff is pleasant, helpful and patient.

This was a fun ride around Nice. We passed sites we might not have seen otherwise. There was one bigger hill. Some of the riders did fine but others struggled up the hill. Not to worry as the guide stayed back with the others and advised us where to stop going up.
