Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
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.

We toured with another couple. Our guide was knowledgable and delightful. We didn't eat or drink very much for the money, but the history and cultural lessons made it completely worthwhile.

I could not recommend this highly enough. During our tour we got a chance to see beautiful sights in Nice, hear the history, go to a market and taste fabulous food. Marion gave great advice of things to do in Nice also. For me the highlight was tasting the food at the market and the speciality shops we went into - it was a authentic French experience. My boyfriend loved our trip to the cafe and the waterfall Marian brought us to (he isn't into food at all but really enjoyed the tour) an excellent way the spend a morning or afternoon in nice.

We loved the food tour we did through The French Way. Our guide was awesome and shared with us not only interesting facts about Nice but also told us all about her upcoming wedding and the traditions surrounding weddings in France. Our group of four ladies were the only ones on the tour. The food was all wonderful with many local specialties. If you get a chance to do this tour, I highly recommend it.

While I took this tour over a year ago, the food tour I took in Nice was one of the highlights of my trip through Nice. It was very educational, the guide my very knowledgeable and helpful. It was a really good day out.

Our tour was fantastic. From the sampling of foods, learning the history, walking tour of the town & market, seeing the views of the sea & Promenade des Anglais, & ending with a drink!!! Also, our tour guide pointed out a good bistro and asked us if we wanted to try and get a reservation for dinner the next evening. And she secured a reservation for us at Le Bistrot d' Antoine and it was one of the best meals we had in Nice. Thank you again, Marion!!!
