Your local guide will take you in the heart of the oldest and bustling district of Nice with a thousand Mediterranean fragrances. He will explain 2 500 years of history of the County of Nice and its evolution from the Greek foundation until today through its medieval period under the House of Savoy and its Belle Epoque since the annexation of France. Visit the Old Nice with its old Arch, houses and typical market. Then, continue to explore the old town and receive many explanations about the architecture, the name of the streets, the shops, etc. Finally, climb up to Castle Hill to observe the ruins of the old castle, the gardens and the wonderful view over Nice.

This walking tour was really great actually. We walked all through the old city and up on the hills with spectacular views. There were only three people on the tour which made it more personal. We also took the elevator to the top of the hill so there was barely any strenuous hiking, at most walking down the hill and through the city. Our guide, Samuel, was also very knowledgeable about the local history of Nice and spoke English really well.

Our guide Samuel was very knowledgeable about Nice and it’s history. Pace was good. We enjoyed our local delicacies. Unfortunately the weather was bad (rain) and the park and lift were closed so we weren’t able to see everything.

Great tour for first time visitors to Nice
As this was our first visit to Nice, we chose this tour to get an understanding of the history of the city, see significant landmarks and acquire an orientation of the Old Town for future wanderings on our own. Samuel is a very knowledgeable guide and his relaxed, friendly nature along with happy fellow travellers made this an enjoyable and informative tour. The castle hill walk with beautiful views along the way was a highlight.

We decided on the 3 hour tour of old Nice and the castle and our tour guide, Samuel was amazing! His knowledge and interaction to the group was excellent. Plus his patience when I had to have a couple of stops on the way up Castle Hill. Thank you Samuel for making my experience amazing.
