Owner description: Not quite French, not quite Italian, Nice’s complex history has strongly influenced its culinary culture and traditions. Prepare to surprise your palate with tastes as delightful as they are unexpected: it’s Nice, it’s different. Distinctive, original and authentic, the Nicoise cuisine is a mirror of the region: a fascinating combination of tastes and cultures, shaped by the sunlight and defined by the beauty of its simplicity. Passionate local guide who mixes history and culinary knowledge. 15 tastings (incl. olive oil and wine) from the best market stolls and best artisan shops. Equivalent of a breakfast and a light lunch.

This foodie tour was such a delight and a great way to familiarize yourself with the city. Tastings along the way with history of Nice.....what could be better?? Marion - the owner and guide - was absolutely delightful, knowledgeable, spoke English beautifully and a pleasure to be around. This tour is a must while in Nice.

What a wonderful way to familiarize oneself with the city! Our guide gave us the inside scoop on local culture and history, and the foods we tried were delicious. We felt more confident in navigating the city and thoroughly enjoyed the well-planned tastings. We would highly recommend.

We signed up to do the French Way tour of the Nice after hearing about it from friends in Australia and were very glad I did so!

There is to so much to see and taste in Nice that we never would have realised without doing the tour - 'socca' is our new favourite food for the summer! The tour guide - Marion herself - was knowledgable, ebullient and really knew the local area, foods and charming characters on the Riviera. Definitely worth making time for.

What a fantastic experience, this food tour was fantastic.....I felt like I really got to experience Nice with a local.
Marion our guide was fantastic, so knowledgeable friendly and easy going. It was a loooooong lunch stopping here and there along the way....pace yourself, it might feel like small amounts of food at the beginning but everything is so rich and delicious your going to be pretty full up by the end. I'm so glad I did this tour with a few days up my sleeve so I can go back and visit some of the places Marion recommended and revisit some of our stops along the way! Worth every penny, it was a great way to spend the morning!

My husband and I have been to Nice several times over the years and really felt that we knew all there was to know. Well, after being recommended The French Way's food tour tour by a friend, I can safely say we had not even scratched the surface! We now feel like total experts! Marion, our guide, was not only lovely but incredibly knowledgable about the delicious food and wine of the region. She took us to many local haunts and we really felt like one of the locals. It was such a fun, relaxed and memorable day. I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in food, good restuarants and basically good living! A real treat.
