Tour description

Dear travelers!

If you would like to discover a charming and authentic town, then Villefranche Sur Mer from Nice is a perfect opportunity for you!

We'll meet in the port of Nice (at the top of the stairs of the tram stop "Port Lympia").

We will then take a bus to Villefranche (7 min. from Nice, 1.70 €).

You will be inspired while exploring magic colourful streets of the Medieval-like Old Town, admiring the best panoramic views and having the most romantic lunch (or dinner) with a beautiful sea view after the tour.

We finish the tour in Villefranche Sur Mer (5 minutes from the train station and 9 minutes from the bus stop). You can return to Nice by bus or by train. The last bus leaves Villefranche at 11pm. 

P.S. I will show you all the secret places (loved by locals) and you'll get my personal list of tips and recommendations about all the little towns and villages of the Cote d'Azure.

(There is so much more to see than just Nice and Cannes!)

Hi Jenny, thank you. Especially for the door knob wishes. I lost my watch and wished to find it. It turned up in my bag after we had got on the train... I had searched my bag earlier. It was not there. Thanks. Hi Jenny, You are a 5 star tour guide, and person. The passion, enthusiasm, energy, knowledge, and care you share with your visitors is special. Best regards to you and your loved ones. From Terry and Lorna, Cape Town, SouthAfrica

I feel SO lucky to have booked a walk with Jenny - it was the best part of my trip to Nice! If you have the chance to join her tour, I cannot recommend it enough. She is incredibly gifted, and clearly someone who has found their calling as a tour guide and storyteller. Jenny was extremely knowledgable and passionate, and because of her I absolutely fell in love with the little town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Not only did she provide fascinating insights into every landmark we encountered, but she also seamlessly wove in historical anecdotes and pointed out hidden gems that truly enriched the experience - exactly what you hope a guide will do. Her infectious enthusiasm and genuine warmth were so uplifting, I felt like I was walking with a good friend! Jenny is also one of the kindest people I've met on my trip. At one point some older women were unable to purchase train tickets from a machine, and Jenny quickly helped them out. She goes above and beyond with everyone, even when they aren't walking with her. By the end of the tour, I not only felt more knowledgeable about the Côte d'Azur, but also deeply inspired by her dedication to giving tours... I even started to think about being a walking tour guide in my own city! It was a truly unforgettable exploration, leaving me with cherished memories, beautiful pictures, and a newfound appreciation for the art of storytelling. Thank you so much Jenny, for this once in a lifetime experience!

It was a delight to be shown around beautiful Villefranche by Jenny. She was very knowledgeable about the sights, background information, history and even films shot there and local celebrities living there Nearly every turning of the Old Town is picture perfect. Ditto the coast and beach It makes a great day trip from nearby Nice either via the bus or train. The more spacious and tranquil atmosphere of this small town is a refreshing change from the city I highly recommend and definitely a highlight of my trip Jenny's enthusiasm and love for Villefranche is very evident and I can certainly understand why

Jenny was so lovely and friendly. This tour is something a bit different because it takes you out of Nice to a more peaceful and calm area. The small group size meant you could chat to other travellers. Jenny was so knowledgeable and did a fantastic job and gave great recommendations!
