Important InfoInfo
Choose from a morning or afternoon cruise, and then hop aboard your sightseeing boat at the Port of Nice and head out onto the waves.

Soak up the Mediterranean sunshine as you cruise the waters of the Rade de Villefranche-sur-Mer, and gain insight into the French Riviera's heritage from the informative onboard commentary.

Navigate the Cap de Nice and head inland to the Citadelle area, taking in beautiful views of the ancient towns and villages clinging to the rugged coastline. Majestic mountains rise upwards from the land in the distance, framing your panoramic vista to perfection.

Turn round in the bay, then cruise along the coastline of the Cap Ferrat and out into the azure-blue waters of the Baie des Anges. Admire magnificent villas perched high on the hillside overlooking the famous Promenade des Anglais, where locals and tourists work and play in the warm sun.

After around an hour on the water, your cruise concludes back at the port.

It's a another way to see the Riviera. Even though you are sharing the boat with others you still get a great view.

Very nice trip and a good boat. It took us along the coast line of the French Riviera with very informative comments in the English and French language. I very much recommend this trip to anyone. Good quality for a reasonable price. Nice cap and crew

We took this double decker bus tour with our family of 9. This is the best way to see the riviera. Even better than a private tour because the view from the second level of the bus is spectacular. The driver was very skilled and the tour guide were just phenomenal. He explained everything well and made our journey such a fun one. This is a not to be missed experience. Can’t say enough nice things about how enjoyable the day was. We could have never seen so many things on our own. Highly recommend!!

We couldn't imagine going to the Cote D'Azur and not getting on the water!! This was a perfect way to see the sights and not kill an entire day doing so.

This was a very nice little boat cruise. My husband and I actually came at the wrong time but the ticket office was accommodating to correct our error, very much appreciated! You have your choice of sitting outside or inside if you need shade. The coast is beautiful and the sun was out, we couldn't complain. On a side note, it was very hot and they sold cold drinks for reasonable costs which was very convenient!

Excellent boat ride, however, it was very difficult to understand our French speaking guide when she was speaking in English over the loudspeaker. We probably missed much of the history but the scenery was spectacular.

Excellent boat tour. Could have been longer but then when you're enjoying yourself time goes far too quickly,, Highly recommended and another one I would do next time

When you arrive at the Nice harbor, be sure to exchange the voucher you printed for a boat ticket. It's quick and easy the office is just a few steps from the boat. I recommend this boat ride for a very inexpensive and convenient to get out on the water and see the French Riviera from a different perspective. You will get some great photos and video. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke three languages. Be sure to take a jacket as it can get a little chilly on the water. Enjoy!

Boat trip was really nice just wish had been longer once you got out of the water but felt was still good value for money. You travel around Villefranche Sur Mer and Nice Pays De Anglais and the commentary is all about the local history and the big houses in the area.
