See the magic of Nice during a bike tour (led in English only) of the Côte d'Azur capital. Make your way through the city at a leisurely pace with a local guide, who offers insights on the main attractions as well as lesser-known sights.

For the most part, Nice's roads are flat and smooth, making it an ideal place to explore by bike. There is one climb up to Chateau Hill during this bike tour – it's worth it for the spectacular views over the city.

Booking this bike tour at the beginning of your time in Nice is an excellent way to get an overview of the city so that you're better equipped to explore on your own afterward.

Great tour

Great 10am tour by Thelma. Saw lots of Nice and learnt a lot about the city. Bikes in good condition. Highlight at end cycling up Castle Hill with amazing views and Castle Cemetery. Highly recommend.
Biking in Nice is a nice way to see the city!
, Sep 2019
Thelma was a great guide as we peddled through many areas of the city that we would not have otherwise seen. We love bike tours when we first visit a new city. Such a great way to see the local color and back streets and neighborhoods not normally visited on the large group drive-by type of tours. You can tell Thelma loves her city as she talks about the various sites she takes us to. The bike route is safe and easily navigated by most anyone.
Great Tour.. Confusing Check In
, Sep 2019
Tour was great and guide was personable and knowledgeable. Different tours checking in at the same time caused a bit of confusion and we ended up buying a Lunch that we didn't need,
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
Thank you for the feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your tour with Mark. Sorry for the confusion at checkin, we confused your name with another guests on another tour. Thank you for being so understanding. We have taken your feedback onboard so we take more care. Thank you once again for taking the time to give us your feedback. Best wishes, Thelma, Mark and the rest of the team

we visited Nice for the 2019 Worlds Triathlon 70.3 as spectators. The first activity was the City Bike Tour. It was the perfect start to the weekend. We learned history, climbed to amazing overlooks and had an entertaining guide Amy. We took our guides advice and suggestions. It made the trip complete.
Fantastic tour

This was an educational and fun tour. Definitely worth the money spent. Took us through some of the most beautiful parts of Nice with breathtaking views. Mariza and her colleague were kind and helpful throughout. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone new to Nice. We loved our time! Thank you ever so much !

Our guide Yvette was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about Nice, and took great care of us. She was safety conscious. Highly recommend this tour.
Worth it!
, Jul 2019
The Bike tour was amazing. Well organized, excellent, very knowledgable tour guide! We could not drive up Castle hill because of a private party but stopped to go up with the funicular while our guide watched our bikes. We were compensated with free Gelato afterwards.
Recommended bike tour!

A big thank you goes to Cyd, our informative and gracious tour guide. I'm petite and the e-bike at its lowest seat height was still too high. Cyd found me another bike during the early part of the tour that fit perfectly. Then the 2019 Iron Man was underway in Nice and the final route was unexpectedly closed; Cyd devised an alternate option that allowed us to see Nice from the top. Then, I lost my cell phone as we were preparing to head back to the shop; Cyd helped me find my phone. While a few wrenches were thrown at Cyd, she handled it with kindness and care. She consistently checked in to ensure I was comfortable and in great spirits. Given the number of tours I have experienced around the world, I highly recommend this bike tour because of Cyd. Merci beaucoup, Cyd from your friends in Canada!
Nice three hour bike tour
, Jun 2019
Thought bike tour wasn’t up to scratch, would have been nice if tour guide would have asked each person there name and where they came from, might have been bette with more history and information about Nice with more time in the old town.
Happy customer
, Jun 2019
The bike tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Nice. The guide was very informative and she gave great recommendations for the rest of our stay.

What an interesting way to tour Nice. The specially designed bikes are able to traverse the small streets and alleys of Old Town Nice, then scale the hill to overlook the City...with leg assistance of course. It turned out to be a private tour as we were the only two scheduled for this particular date and time. Our guide, Jennifer, is a transplant from Scotland whose knowledge of Nice and its history was impressive. Our time together was very enjoyable. I would recommend.

This is a review for a tour done on September 8th, 2018. What a fun way to spend an afternoon! The tour goes through Vieux-Ville Nice Old Town Nice, Place Massena, a few other neighborhoods and eventually up Castle Hill done in 3 stages so there are breaks. I have not been on a bike for over a decade and was able to get the hang of it within a few minutes even going through crowded areas. Highly recommend. If you do this tour in the summer, wear sun-block. Water was also provided to us in refillable water bottles. We had a lot of fun!

Electric Bike Trip Panoramic Tour from Nice to Villefranche. This trip was probably the best thing I have done on a holiday! There was a mix up with Viator, who had booked us on the regular tour, but the tour company sorted it out immediately and swapped us to the correct tour. Our guide Jen was great at instructing on bike use and giving clear instructions which meant you felt totally comfortable and safe on the e bike. The views were just breath taking- I will do this trip again if I am ever back in Nice. Thanks to the tour company for a great experience all round.

My sister and i took this tour in May 2017 and it was amazing. The ride up to the view point was a task but without a doubt worth it. Our tour guide was amazing and she recommended an ice-cream shop in the town which was nice. Nice was and still is my favorite city ever.

Kim was an excellent guide who provided a fun and informational experience. The ride was a challenge for non-cyclists when going to the high point above the city. Electric bikes would be ideal! Views were great and we were able to cover a great deal of territory that would have not been possible on foot during a short visit to the city.
