Overview

The definitive way to explore any city is on foot. And, the best way to discover everything a new city has to offer is with a well-informed local guide. It all comes down to the guiding, who and what they know.
Free Cannes Walking Tours puts you into the hands of a trusted local expert. They come with years of experience and vast knowledge. Who better to guide you to the Tour du Masque haunted by the ghost of the mythical, mysterious figure known as the “Man in the Iron Mask”?

HISTORICAL CANNES

Initially a Roman camp, Le Suquet is Cannes’ old town quarter and the original site of the city. With its medieval buildings and a castle atop the hill, it offers an intriguing contrast to the glamour of La Croisette. This is the most picturesque part of town. It is easy to lose your way among the labyrinth of back streets, quaint passageways, and petite squares. Your guide will show you the highlights of this area. Climbing to the top of the Suquet Hill, you will take in panoramic views of Cannes and the surrounding area.

Cannes is one of the best-known cities in France. It is also one of the world’s busiest and most famous tourist destinations. This is due in large part, to the annual Cannes Film Festival. During your Cannes walking tour you simply must “Take a selfie on the Red Carpet, darling!”
The Mediterranean resort is also renowned for a vibrant port and its historic market called Le Marché Forville. You will discover a multitude of luxury shops, fancy restaurants, prestigious hotels, and lovely parks.
Take your Free Cannes Walking Tour and hear all about some of the most interesting places this vibrant and glamorous city has to offer. At the end of the tour your guide will be available to answer any questions you may have. They can make recommendations and advise on all things Cannes.
There is limited space on this great-value tour, and it is always extremely popular. Be sure to book online in advance and make sure you’re with us every step of the way!

GLAMOROUS CANNES

Cannes is at once synonymous with the glamour and glitz of international movie stars, well-heeled tourists, and well-dressed locals. But a tour here extends well beyond the swanky boardwalk, giving you the chance to explore the fascinating history that was Cannes in years gone by.

We only visited Cannes for one day, but we wanted to learn something about this city so saw this great offer of a free walking tour and were happy to participate in it. Our guide was Lillie and she did a really good job. It was not at all a boring lecture but rather a very exciting excursion with lots of information about the city. Thank you for an amazing experience.

I love doing free tours on my travels and I already did some very good ones but this one was exceptional. the guide was very enthusiastic and one could see that he is enjoying his job! He was very modest and not to pushy which made the tour super relaxed. Loved it.

I attended this tour with my mom and my grandma. We had a great time with Catherine the host of our tour. She did an excellent job an I appreciated her patience since my grandma is not the youngest anymore so we could not walk that fast which was no problem for her and the other people. Everyone was very kind and caring. We loved it. Great way to get to know the city.

Exceptional tour of Cannes. In fact one of the best free tours I have ever been on. Especially since the guide was so adorable and just had a very detailed knowledge of the city and other cities of the Cote d'Azur. We were really impressed by him and of course by the beauty of Cannes.

great ratio between the time spent and what you see and learn

The tour lasted approximately 2hours and covered probably the most important places of the city It is a great ratio between the time spent and what you see and learn. Catherine recommended some restaurants for us to try and we were not disappointed. I kind of feel like a Cannes expert now :))

This walking tour is perfect to help you get to know Cannes. We got to see the highlights of the city (Film Festival location, French Riviera, shops, churches and a great high view of the whole city). Our guide, Demir, was very informative and went beyond the time allotted. It is quick, no time to stop and shop, but it allows you to make mental notes of what you'd like to go back and see. We were on a cruise and this gave us a great taste of the city and from there we were able to spend the rest of the day going back to the parts we wanted to spend more time in. Highly recommend it.

What a wonderful integrated world we live in when Isabella from Argentina gives an enthusiastic and informative tour of Cannes! It was hot and I was fearful of a demanding, exhausting trek around a sticky city. However Isabella took it gently, at our pace. Somehow from the old food market, with a fried zucchini flower for energy, we were at the top of Le Souquet (the summit) with great views down on Le Croisette without feeling the pain of getting up there. Isabella struck the right note between too much and too little. She must be given credit for keeping two recalcitrant teenagers engaged and on board! We ended the tour feeling we had seen everything but not overloaded by information and still with some gas in the tank to head back to the old town for lunch and some more exploring.
