      This tour is a good way to see Old Nice and learn some its history. We were the only ones on the tour, and our guide, Guillermo, gave us a very thorough introduction to Nice. We took the elevator up Castle Hill, walked our way down through the park, and through the old town. Guillermo did a great job of explaining what we were looking at, how old Nice was founded, grew, and changed over the years, and shared some of the local stories and legends. Overall, this was a great tour, with a lot of interesting history presented in a fairly short period of time.

      Our guide was great, we had a small group, which was very good since we did not waste any time. The tour should have started at 10 AM,
      since the Castle lift did not open until then, therefore we all agreed to go to the Old Town.

      Samuel is a very passionate and knowledgeable tour group leader
      he took his time explaining the history of nice and we walked at a nice pace
      he has an excellent command of english which puts us to shame
      he also seems to know zillions of people in old nice,everyone was saying hello to him
      so he's good for tips on food and places to go!

      We missed this tour, because the departure point stated : Nice. I phoned the operator at 9h00 - but answering machine said that they only opened at 9h30 - which was the time our tour was to start. Very disappointed.
