Nice relaxing boat tour
Brigita_A

This was a nice boat tour from Nice harbour. It does take some time to get from Nice Ville train station to the harbour (at least 15 min using tram and walking) but it was a great ride. I don't think there are any bad seats on the boat and we enjoyed the tour.

This was a lovely afternoon experience. Being able to view the beautiful Mediterranean coast from the sea was worthwhile. It would have been helpful if the instructions had been clearer about where to pick up tickets, but otherwise a really good trip.

not bad, just not great
Erin_F

the views of nice from the boat were really nice and on a hot day the breeze felt really good too. they suggest getting there 15 min early and that’s pretty important, maybe even get there 20 min early. i wish the information given on the boat was a little more historical, some of it was just which famous people live in which house on the shore.

Fun and a good value

Nice quick coastline tour. Only disappointment was that the tour guide narrative was not loud enough to hear over the engine. And I was sitting in front of one of the speakers. There is a cash bar on board

Beautiful views, nice staff

Absolutely loved this. The crew were so friendly and offered to take pictures of us. The route was lovely with lots of amazing views and also reasonably priced. The first boat was a bit packed so we were allowed to change to the later boat and ended up having the lower deck to ourselves. However the 4pm boat which was the later one was not on Viator, it might be worth booking directly with the office than through Viator.

Good views of the city, but the ship was a little over crowded and it was hard to hear what the guide was saying over the speaker.

This was a very nice tour. The process of redeeming the online voucher for the paper ticket was very simple, and the boat dock was easy to find. The tour was offered in both English and French, and the staff on board were very friendly. The views were wonderful. My only recommendation: wear lots of sunscreen.

It was an okay experience. Being on the sea is always fantastic. Only down side is the tour guide was 90% English or so it seemed so couldn't enjoy the history but not bad overall.

A very good short boat trip from Nice with views of the Côte d’Azur coastline from the sea. Arrive early to ensure a good outdoor seat onboard.

Short, but Good

Seeing the area from the sea is a must. Very beautifull! This cruise was short, but a lot of fun and worth the time. The staff was great as well.

Great views, some things lost in translation
Kaila_C
, May 2022
We definitely saw some beautiful sights and learned some things along the way. The crew and captain were great and translated some things in English during the tour but we definitely felt like there were long paragraphs of French explanations about things and then the translation to English was about one sentence. Sometimes there would be a long explanation in French and then no translation at all. We felt a little left out. But all in all, it was a beautiful way to spend an hour.

Mass boat ride. Disappointed

Save your money. Found out while in line that all outdoor seats were full and that we’d have to be inside….why wasn’t this disclosed in the description?! Was a party atmosphere with lots of selfie-taking from the younger crowd.

Great tour! Lots to see from the water. The crew was fun and the 1 hour trip was the perfect length. Get there early to exchange your reservation to tickets and get in line for a good seat on the boat.
