FAQ

General Questions

What is the difference between Free Walking Tour of Nice and Free Night Walking Tour of Nice?

The “day” walking tour of Nice which starts at 11:00 (am) gives everyone a general overview of Nice and is a great starting point for your vacation. It is usually more “full” during the summer season, with groups, averaging between 20 and 40 people.

The “night” tour, which starts at 20:00 (8:00 pm) is rather an intriguing expansion on the modern history of Nice and gives you more insight into what has formed Nice into its current form, and that all while enjoying the beautiful evening scenery of lights!

Free Night Walking Tour of Nice

free-walking-tour-of-nice-france
How does the free night walking tour work?

The Free Walking Tour of Nice works on the Tip bases, which means that after the tour is over, you can give your guide the amount that reflects how you enjoyed the tour. If you REALLY enjoy the tour, you can leave even 20 euros, and on the other hand, if you haven’t enjoyed yourself at all, you don’t need to Tip your guide at all!

Do all the Tips go to my guide?

We operate free walking tours, however, there is a cost to everything. To successfully operate the tours, we need to pay for administration, like the websites’ fees, materials and other things which we sometimes need to cover by a percentage of the tips. However, our guides still keep a fair share of what they make. In 2019 we also started a new initiative called the Social Riviera Project where we give 10% of our tips to a charity. We chose new charity every 3 months to make sure we are helping out in all the different areas we can.

I tried to book the tour for a group and it showed me that I should pay 7,5 euros per person. What does that mean?

We want to accommodate and offer our free tours to as many individuals as possible, therefore, in case of bookings for groups of 5 and more people, we charge 7,5 Eur per person.

Can I join the free night walking tour although I have not booked the tour online?

Yes. We will always welcome you on our free tours, whether you booked in advance or not. The only thing we will ask you upon your arrival to the meeting spot is, your email address.
