Not quite French, not quite Italian, Nice’s complex history has strongly influenced its culinary culture and traditions. Prepare to surprise your palate with tastes as delightful as they are unexpected: it’s Nice, it’s different.

Distinctive, original and authentic, the Nicoise cuisine is a mirror of the region: a fascinating combination of tastes and cultures, shaped by the sunlight and defined by the beauty of its simplicity.

Passionate local guide who mixes history and culinary knowledge.

15 tastings (incl. olive oil and wine) from the best market stolls and best artisan shops.

Equivalent of a breakfast and a light lunch.

My husband and I have been on several food tours when travelling around the world so when booking this food tour we expected the same level of insights and quality of food. We have to say that we were disappointed in this food tour. First of all, our guide repetitively asked us to rate the tour on TripAdvisor even before... More

This company cancelled on us twice with notification at 6:30 pm and 8:00 pm on the nights prior to the tour the next morning. First, both tour guides had the flu and then second, the oil tasting shop at the last stop was closed on Tuesdays. How was this not verified before rebooking us? Why is such a supposed reputable...

Dorothee, our guide was bright, knowledgeable, passionate and experienced in both the history of Nice as a city and its food culture. Even though we traveled in winter, Dorothee was able to adapt to both the smaller group and the produce available to give us a wonderful overview of the Old City and insights to where the best of Nice...

We had an excellent time on our food tour of Nice with Marion. She was charming, engaging, and took her time with us. We were able to sample a lot of very local cuisine that we would have never run across on our own. She also told us a lot about the history of the area and food. She took... More

My fiancé and I went on the food and wine tour while we were in Nice and had a fantastic time. During the tour, we tried so many different types of foods that we probably would not have tried on our own. We left the tour full and feeling more knowledgeable about Nice's food culture. I definitely recommend this tour... More

I paid for the Wine Tour and received a confirmation email, but without a location. I emailed the company twice to confirm and also sent a text message but the French Way never responded. To get a refund, I had to work through my credit card company when I returned. What a waste! It's not the expense but rather the... More

There's probably not enough space in this review box to describe how wonderful this tour is. Our guide Marion was thoroughly charming and incredibly knowledgeable about local history, customs, and, of course, food. We visited the open air market to scoop up all types of local delicacies, each with its own amazing history. Then it was on to shops in... More

This was a fantastic morning waking around marketplace in the old town Nice. Our guide Marion was very knowledgeable and very nice. We started with choosing fruits and vegetables from different stands at the market, learned how to order coffee at a "boulangerie", learned about traditional snacks of the place and ended up by eating all that we have gotten...
