What people are saying about Nice

Really fun way to get oriented to Nice. Nicholas was a great guide. Went on the 2 hour tour with my 3 teen / adult kids. Glad we did this rather than the 1 hour tour, in think that would have been too short. The Segways were quite easy to ride after a few minutes and felt really comfortable by the end. The have a little bag on the front so you could put a small bag in there if you needed to. Enjoyed seeing the old town and riding through the small streets, then up the hill. Had already done a free walking tour but still enjoyed doing the Segway tour. Really recommend this experience.

Amazing tour: beautiful places on sunny December afternoon and sunset hour! Our driver Nathan speaks both English & Spanish to us, and he is super friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed it very much.

Great experience!!! Definitely recommend!! Parfait was awesome. He had so much information and answered so many of our questions. This is a must!!!
