Board your sightseeing boat at the Port of Nice for either a morning or afternoon tour.

Bask in the glowing Mediterranean sun while you glide down the coast of the French Riviera. Listen to informative on-board commentary about the history of this region as you gaze up at the little villages perched on hillsides overlooking the water. Watch the landscape rise from the beaches through hills and up to the mountains in the distance. Admire the luxurious villas with their magnificent sea views.

Cruise through the Rade de Villefranche-sur-Mer and around the Cap de Nice. Venture back toward the shore to see the fortress of the Citadelle. Turn around in the bay for the return trip along Cap Ferrat and into the Baie des Anges. Watch people stroll along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

Your boat returns to the Port of Nice after about an hour's time on the water.

Holiday highlight

Lovely welcome from the crew. Plenty of seating with snacks and drinks made available. Stunning views and good photo opportunities. Guided tour provided information. I would recommend this boat trip as part of your holiday. It’s only an hour and we really enjoyed it

Amazing Views, fun animation!

This family business is well kept! We had reserved our spots to be sure to have seats on the early cruise and did not regret it. The port is easy to find, the staff is friendly. You might have to wait a little before boarding...More

Thoroughly relaxed tour

Thoroughly relaxed tour with interesting detail on the staggering scenery of the Riviera shoreline of Nice and Villefranche from the lively and energetic tour guide. Well worth the money.

My guess is you need to file with Viator or who ever the third party was that facilitated the booking. I’ve had to file a claim like this through Viator before and they were super helpful and quick to resolve everything.
