    Underwhelming food tour
    , Jul 2022
    The tour started at 9:40AM and our first stop was in the old market for red wine—highly inappropriate way to start at that time of day. Also sweet but not particularly engaging guide—going to stores for tastings is not what we expected and we’ve been on many food tours. This one was pretty lackluster.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Dear Linda, Thank you for your review. We are truly sorry to hear that you didn't had a good experience. We will strive to do it better. We would also like to make some clarifications in order to help future customers interested in booking with us. Our tour guide always starts the tour at 9:30 with a presentation of the members of the group and an introduction of the tour itself. Then she moves to the second stop of the tour. Around 10:30, at the historical market, we offer a glass of local wine along with some delicious cheeses and cold cuts tastings and some pairings (because the pairings are importants, and one of the most known french or italian pairing is cheeses/red wine). It's just a little drop to taste, or a bit more if you like, but it's not mandatory though. As clearly specified on Viator's page, in the overview section of the tour, we visit differents table at the typical market, a artisan shops and then we prepare a local food picnic to taste more local products and local food specialties on a short period of time. We select the best producers and the bests owners. We have special partnerships, and if in some places there is something that everyone can taste, most of the stops this is not something that everyone can have passing by. It seems you really enjoyed some shops, because you bought several products. That's a pity you spent a lot of time shopping around without the rest of the group (and we had to wait you several times) and a pity you went away before to offer the picnic, which is the moment when we taste many local food, wines ans pastries. And it's a pity to give a bad review for a service that you stopped much before the end of the tour. Your husband enjoyed it until the end and I think he appreciated it because he gave a good tip to the guide. We hope you spent a great holiday in Nice. À bientôt!
    Grazing Our Way Around Nice Old Town
    , Oct 2019
    Our tour was delayed 2 days, due to lack of a guide, but was well worth the wait. Samuel met us as planned and gave a brief history of the area. He shared some sweets as we walked through the market. He stopped at various stalls an either provided samples or gathered foods for us to taste later. Included was a visit to a chocolate shop, wine store, pizza restaurant, socca restaurant and an olive oil shop. The whole experience lasted 5 hours and was a treat for the senses.
    Did not meet expectations

    Tour did not match the description. 3 hours instead for 4 hours Only tasted one wine, no olive oil or pasta or homemade ice cream Food tasting didn’t flow, started with candies at 9:30 Guide was friendly and informative Washroom at coffee stop was disgusting
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2019
    Really sorry Martha, the food lovers tour did not meet your expectations. The tour guide was freshly employed on the company, and we had some unexpected problems. She told me that the bar where she offered you a coffee, the toilets are always neat normally, but it had been a wrong day for the attention in the bar, she said me that she gave you excuses and she proposed you another public toilet. But this is not the fault of our guide, but an unexpected problem in the bar. Homemade Pasta is not in the description of the tour as a tasting on the tour, sometimes we do, sometimes not. The food tour have details which can change depending on the day, the season, the products available in the market and if only 3 persons booked we can offer a little bit less products than if 5 persons booked. We start with coffee, candies, little pastries, candied fruits (like breakfast in the market) and then we start later with salted local food specialties (at least 10 tastings, to do like a local lunch). We always propose at least 2 differents wines from Provence, and local olive tastings (She told us, there was another big group waiting, she asked you and you wasn't agreeing to wait for the olive oil tasting). After all the tastings finish we offer at the end, as a dessert, the best home made ice cream of Nice. As we are a small company, proposing many creative tours, the activity is sometimes too intense and we have to employ a new professional guide and a bad experience happen, really sorry about that. But we always do our best to provide quality tours with local, professional, passionate guides (with diploma) and to offer really the best quality of products and home made specialities, avoiding all the tourist traps. And we always refund the customers when it's necessary. Please send us a private message with your reference number and we will do a refund as the tour didn't met your expectations. We are making the necessary to form all our guides before the season start and not employing a new guide during the season (she worked on foodie tours before, and didn't had time to show her all the details). I hope we will have the opportunity to show you in future our best skills and the best facets of French Riviera. Best regards
    Good time, good ambience.

    Original tour got cancelled but was moved to another. The French Way. This was very enjoyable. We went through the markets and heard the stories and was able to taste some of the foods which were fantastic. Something I would have done in the past but highly recommend it to others now.

    What a fabulous time. Samuel met our foodie needs and then some. Tons of different foods. Plus, great knowledge of the history and culture of the area made the whole thing great. Really easy to get along with and adapted to each of our requests. Plus many vendors seem to know him, which was cool.

    We had a wonderful tour in Nice. Our tour guide was excellent, however he waited an hour for us to show up because he was told the tour started at 9AM, when our information was for 10AM. He was very helpful and even help our driver find a parking place. Some of the people on our tour were seniors and he could tell they were getting a little tired so he brought the food samples to them. He was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond the call of duty!!

    Somehow this tour was scheduled on a day other than the day confirmed. As we were only in Cannes 1 day, we did not take this tour.
    Zu empfehlen!!

    War eine sehr tolle Führung, super Guide. Das einzige was nicht so toll war, der Treffpunkt wird falsch angegeben. Kein Treffpunkt Place Massena sondern auf dem Markt. Ansonsten alles super!
