I went on this tour after booking it through Viator, I was to meet up with the guide, a French local, at a specific point. I misread the instructions and went to Castle Hill, I accept that as my fault. The guide was already at the meeting point, we communicated earlier through Whatsapp. But what he did next really made me feel so stupid, I was silently angry for the rest of the tour: He asked to look at my phone, to read the directions, then he pointed out the landmarks that was the instruction on the voucher and asked if I had trouble finding it to begin with while other tourists already got there before the departure time. It felt like a teacher trying to make a student learn a lesson. Then we did the walking tour throughout, he was very knowledgeable but I was still angry with earlier. Then during the talks, one of the huge umbrellas fell on me from a restaurant. And we walked around more, sat down and had a snack. The guide sat down next to us and ate some French delicacies, I know it is not illegal, but he would have a couple of cigarette smokes while I was sitting on the table, and it went to my face sometimes. I don't smoke at all, and felt put off by it. The walking tour finished and I declined to go with the guide and the rest of the group because I truly did not enjoy the experience. I am normally an easy going guy, but really hated being made to feel stupid, the guide probably didn't feel he did anything wrong, but it's how I felt.

If the business or company is reading this, I hope you can take some constructive criticism from this.

Hello Toan, really sorry you felt like that, but really I remember the scene like it happened yesterday and that's not what happened, I didn't made anything to make you feel stupid. The rest of the small group and I waited you during minimum 40mn. When you arrived I welcome yoy with an happy birthday smiling, you was embarrassed and not friendly. I just shown you on the ticket where was written the address CASTEL plage (and not Castle hill), without any aggressive mood. But yes you was on a good mood at all and you spoke to anyone. The huge umbrella from the restaurant felt on you, correct, it was a windy day, but I am just a guide and I try to do my best to explain you in 2hours the best history, stories and facts about my old town, and then offer you a local food tasting. I can't control the winds and the umbrellas from the restaurant (And even if I would be maire of the city, that's complicate). Really sorry for the smoke of the cigarette, sometimes if J had a long day, I smoke one, always asking if it's disturbing anyone. Now I don't smoke anymore near customers because I know people say that is ok to be polite, but finally don t like it if they are non smokers from cultures where it's something more private and maintained in smokers areas. Please, next time, feel free to explain the problem to be resolved on the moment instead feeling so embarrassed. Best regards

Our guide seemed to know quite a bit of the history of nice and was quite friendly and polite. Unfortunately our tour was done on a day when our tour guide (can’t Remember his name) was apparently feeling ill, he didn’t come across as very engaging. (His lack of enthusiasm may have just been because he was in fact a bit bored!) It was only my husband and I on this particular tour, which got a little bit awkward as we struggled with conversation, and there were some awkward silences between us and the guide!

The tour guide took us all round the old town, and did have some interesting things to tell us and at the end of the tour he bought us some local speciality food to try (just some chickpea chip things) which was quite nice of him, but again.. a bit awkward knowing what to say! He was also spending a fair bit of time on his phone to his landlord rather than focusing on the tour which was a tad annoying.

It would probably have been better if more people had joined and would have been nice if he had been a bit more enthusiastic and energetic.

Really sorry about this experience, the guide was ill that day, and couldn't be very energetic and enthusiastic. Sometimes springtime is intense and a guide can fall sick and it was a wrong day with personal problems. Sorry about misconvenience, me a culpa. We always do our best to provide quality tours with local, professional, passionate guides (with diploma). And we always refund the customers when it necessary. Send us a private message with your reference number and we will do it. I hope we will have the opportunity to show you in future our best skills and the best facets of French Riviera. Best regards

Friends of mine and I went on the half-day Of Nice Old Town. Samuel, our guide, put us with a Brazilian couple. We had no problem with that except that one the Brazilians did understand neither French nor English. As a result, our guide translated, word by word, from French to Portuguese, all the historic intents of the tour. What a boring and a waste of time...!
Any tour guide should make sure that every participant understands the language as communication.
The tour was certainly not worth the Euros 15/pp we paid.
I went on a different tour in Nice... far more interesting.

Really sorry Anne, it unfortunately happened we received a last minute booking in Portuguese with this Brazilian , and I had to translate her. As we are a small company, proposing many creative tours, the activity is sometimes too intense and we receive a last minute booking and no time to manage. We always separate the persons depending the language spoken. Sorry about misconvenience. We always do our best to provide quality tours with local, professional, passionate guides (with diploma). And we always refund the customers when it necessary. Send us a private message with your reference number and we will do it immediately. We are making the necessary to employ one person regarding the Secretary assistance, which can be more reactive concerning the last minute bookings. I hope we will have the opportunity to show you in future our best skills and the best facets of French Riviera. Best regards

Maya was a very knowledgeable tour guide who gave our group a very informative overview of many of the historical sites in the old city of Nice. She answered all of our questions with clarity. A great tour!
