About
Formerly a designer, the idea bloomed in my mind to become a tourists guide few years ago. As soon as I started that new adventure I realized that becoming a guide was a true calling to me. I am passionate, joyful, enthusiastic, dedicated and a perfectionist. I aim to deliver a high standard service, and there is nothing I love more than sharing my insider knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors from all around the world.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Celine was an amazing tour guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable about present day Nice and its history as well. We began together having coffee as Celine shared some of the history of old Nice, complete with visuals she has compiled. We then walked around Old Nice with Celine describing all the sights. We truly got a flavor of the old town. Celine arranged lunch for us at a fabulous local restaurant. Celine is honestly delightful and I would most highly recommend her tour!

This was probably the most informative & interesting tour we've ever taken. Celine is not only a charming guide, she's a Nice native with clearly a passion for detail, history and travel. Celine has gone to great lengths to learn the history of her city dating back 2 millennia.

We've been to Nice 4 times previous and were somewhat ambivalent about doing a tour now but came away wishing we'd been able to do this 16 years ago! The 3 hours we spent with Celine gave us many more options of things to see in the area and a new understanding/appreciation of what we'd seen in the past.

Make this tour the first stop on your Nice holiday!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write that wonderful review ! I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed this tour and appreciated learning about Nice's history. I love telling this fascinating story because it allows to know all the different influences that have shaped our culture and its natural and architectural riches, then understand the local culture and how and why through centuries Nice developed and became such a famous city. My aim is that, after the tour, travelers continue to carry this history with them, so they can then understand by themselves everything they see, hear and taste too! There is nothing that makes me more happy than when that magic happens ! I hope you'll come back to Nice! As you know now, there's still so much to discover here!

We were referred to Celine by friends and what followed was one of the best of many tours we have undertaken in Europe. To provide a context, we are New Zealanders with a great love of France. We have undertaken numerous tours and have walked through the Nice old town many times. But Celine took us back to periods BC and as we sat in a cafe consuming coffee and delicious pastries she led us through the history and control of Nice up until recent times. She is a passionate born and bred Resident of Nice and she has a vast and deep knowledge of her city. Moreover she has a delivery which brings that knowledge to life with a lovely smile and a slightly cheeky presentation. That background is then brought further to life by an enchanting stroll through the Old Town where evidence of the historical preface is found in every corner and alley. At the end we were recommended to a local restaurant serving delicious food at a very low cost. We were delighted to include Celine in our lunch and continue to hear more of the background to Nice Old Town. In our view this tour with Celine is a must do when visiting Nice.

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much! It was a great pleasure for me to meet you and to do my Tour of Old Nice for you ! It was a wonderful moment of sharing. I'll also treasure the memory of that joyful lunch spent together in this restaurant very much loved by the locals that I wanted you to know about to taste the local specialties! Thank you for inviting me to join you! Perhaps we will meet again when you will come back to Nice? Don't hesitate to contact me again, I will guide you through other beautiful and interesting places, like the Cimiez garden and the "Belle Epoque" area of Nice for exemple. A bientôt !? :)

If you were to look up the definition of the perfect tour guide, there you would find a picture of Celine. We spent a delightful morning together on her Walking Tour of Old Nice. Her passion for her hometown and it’s rich history was evident from the moment the tour began while sipping cappuccinos at one of her favorite local cafes. Her wealth of knowledge was imparted upon us in such a way that we were left just as she had hoped, with a longing to spend more time in the place she loves. I can not use enough superlative adjectives to recommend this tour. It was a fact-filled, fascinating, fun experience and made all the more interesting by its charming host. We look forward to our return next fall when we will surely see her again!

A special memory touring the old Town of Nice, thanks to Celine - Nice by Heart! ❤
I was kindly invited on a personalised tour of historical sites in the Old Town of Nice & it was a true highlight of my trip!
From the moment we met Celine, her warmth & authenticity along with a wealth of knowledge & a genuine love of Nice & people, we felt like we toured this amazing city with a dear friend!
I lost track of time in this fascinating city, with Celine guiding us, with the perfect combination of a depth of knowledge, compassion, kindness & a fabulous sense of humour!
I cannot recommend Celine highly enough. Celine is so popular among the people of this city, that is clear to see with a frequent "Bonjour" along the way!
How lucky we were to be guided by Celine in this truly memorable city!

What a wonderful experience it was to spend a morning with Celine on her walking tour of Nice. Her knowledge of the city and it's history was amazing. I got to see parts of the city I never would have found on my own and I was fascinated with the historical events that she was able to share with me. It was also a pleasure to meet Celine! Her warm and engaging personality made the experience so much more fun!

We had a wonderful tour with Celine! She brought a personal touch to our walk through the city commenting on things she loved about the town. This gave us a much more in-depth understanding of the history of the city and its path to growth. Several years ago, we had gone through old town on our own and found a wonderful salt/herb/vinegar store on one of the streets and she helped us find and reconnect with the establishment. She was very accommodating to our needs.

Thank you for your comment! I'm always happy to know that I've succeeded in introducing the culture and history of my beautiful city of Nice to interested and enthusiastic travelers like you! It's been a shared pleasure. Answering you gives me the opportunity to mention that place you like very much taht sells spices and vinegar: it is called "Girofle et Cannelle" in the Old Town of Nice. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys cooking and tasting quality products.

Celine is a master story teller. From the onset, she was great to deal with and organised a bespoke tour for us. Nothing was too much trouble. Her path through the city took in historical and fascinating sites even to the quirky. This is an excellent way to see the city of Nice. She is charming.

We loved our walking tour of Nice's Old Town with Celine. She has not only lived in the city for most of her life, but she is also well-versed in the area's history. The tour included stops at iconic sights such as Nice's Opera and the Cours Selyna market. Along the way, Celine pointed out some of her favourite restaurants, shopping tips, some foodie musts and provided endless reasons to return again and again to Nissa la belle. Nice by Heart is a perfect name for Celine's walking tour company, she clearly loves the city and wants her guests to feel the same. We will return!

Yes, come back! There are so many lovely places to discover here! Nissa la belle is a city so rich in history and interesting places to visit, is also the perfect place to relax and immerse yourself in French and Mediterranean culture. It's always a pleasure for me to share its secrets with travelers from all over the world! I'm glad you enjoyed that tour of its Old Town with me and that it made you want to come back!
