After reading other reviews, we booked the tour expecting a nice stroll thru the city with different tasting experiencies. What we got is poor tasing food from some cheap street restaurants, tasting cheap wine at 1 euro a quart, and discussing monounsaturated fat while drinking different olive oils from a spoon. At that point we couldn't waste any more of our time and left. The guide did provide some historical information, and took us thru some nice local markets. However, this "tasting" tour does not do Nice justice. Other than during this tour, the food in Nice is just amazing. Get your tasting elsewhere.

Thank you for your review and your feedback, which we will use to improve the information on our tour.

Our tour attempts to manage the delicate balance between the opulent and the pure which characterises the food eaten in Nice. At the beginning of the tour, we have two “opulent” stops which are not mentioned in the review. We also emphasize that the latter half focuses on the “pure” aspect, where we do not attempt to impress with elaborate dishes or expensive restaurants, but rather with traditional places we find best illustrate what true, pure and original Niçois cuisine is all about.

We also focus on the health benefits of Mediterranean cooking, hence the intervention on olive oils, which many of our past guests have especially appreciated. The 1 EUR wine, which we buy from an historical wine merchant in the old Town, also fits in perfectly with trying to show our guests what true, pure, original Niçois cuisine is all about.

Excellent tour. Friendly folks who run it. Good-sized portions of food. An excellent way to discover the tastes of Nice so that you can savor them again on your own. Last year we went on a food tour of Dublin. That tour pales to this one. On that tour the group shared small portions of food, literally samples, so thata we needed lunch afterwards. This tour is the opporiste. You are full and satisfied afterwards. What I savored on this tour, however, I could not find of the same quality throughout Nice. The tour provided an opportunity to dine at breakfast at the Hotel Negresco which was very special. Otherwise, we never would have experienced the Negresco. Only suggestion is for Gustav and Thelma to tell us where to get those wonderful tourtes aux blettes. A must-do in Nice!

What an amazing tour, we didn't know what to expect but we now have wonderful memories of a great day, it was made very personal with Gustav's knowledge of both food and Nice. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome and the ice was broken when Gustav introduced himself and learnt everyones name in our tour group.
Gustav's enthusiasm and passion were evident throughout the entire tour, food and wine were in full flow and always in vast amounts at each stop.

Nice is a beautiful city facing the Mediterranean Sea with it unique color that cannot find in any other Sea or Ocean. The Promenade des Anglais has many beautiful hotels and excellent restaurant. I enjoyed visiting different restaurants and of course you have to try the sea food , their salads and also do not miss the foi gras.
They have many interesting places to visit but you will need more that one trip to enjoy then all including excellent Museums like the Musee National Message Biblique Marc-Chagall and others. I am ready for another trip to Nice,
