The boat ride to Villefranche Bay was delightful. Beautiful, amazing views, some history and enjoyable narration. Wonderful to be on the water. A must to get a view from the water and to add a dimension to time in Nice. Four of us enjoyed it very much, including the ones who live in France and have spent time in Nice and Villefranche before. Just wonderful, fun cruise.

AMAZING! Incredible value, the captain and guides where very Nice;) and the tour included a great variety of locations both historic and referencing pop/music culture. They also pointed out many locations which I probably would have not sought out otherwise 10/10. Would have gladly paid triple for this tour. Thank you!

Super nice sailing trip up the coast both one way and the other. However, we had to get up on the trip, as there were far too many people on the boat. Perhaps a lower limit for children's age should be considered?!? Screaming children are not a plus on the trip! And there were quite a few of them...and tired parents.
