It’s time to discover Nice by night, and see the city in a different light.
There is so much more to Nice than meets the eye; this vibrant city has gone through a lot of changes since its inception. Having been ruled by countless cultures, it’s safe to say the city is a true melting pot of its past influences.
Did you know that Nice only became French a mere 160 years ago? Well, it’s from this point of Nice’s new found identity that we begin to explore the history and the way it changed Nice into the city it is today.
Not only will you discover how Nice became French but we will take you through the city’s more modern history from the roaring twenties, the World Wars, and the most recent developments that have changed the face of the city…for the better.
During this tour, you will discover so much more than expected:
We take a look at the city from the lens of its visitors and how their presence helped shape the city into the holiday destination it is today.
Of course, we all know that the best things in life are free…and guess what, so is this tour! Our team continually works hard to ensure our tours are the best and if you decide to come along and enjoy the service we provide, we’d encourage you to leave our guides tip as a gratitude for their service.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We use your email address to send you a group picture from the tour AND to send you a little helpful guide to Nice and French Riviera, where you can find tips on where to go for typical Nicoise food, how to get around in Nice and much more.
You don’t have to be worried. We do not send out unwanted newsletters nor advertisements. The only thing you might get is a nice Christmas email wishing your great holidays!
During every tour we take a group picture as a memory of our time spend together. We always post these pictures on our facebook page
and we also send you an email with it.
We meet at Massena square Sun fountain, right in front of the apollo statue https://www.google.fr/maps/place/Fontaine+du+Soleilemail@example.com,7.2706213,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x77566707bed909ce?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjXoo-XqsTzAhUFHxoKHQo_DKEQ_BJ6BAhnEAU
