On the Pure Nice Food Tour, you get to taste your way through local specialities.
You will not only get a feel for the flavour of Niçois cuisine, but also the unique history and culture of Nice.
Our tour shows you the best side of true, pure Niçois cuisine. We take you to places few tourists would see and the food you will taste are local dishes you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in France or the world.
Whether you are a real foodie or not, our gourmet walking tour will give you an out of the ordinary culinary experience!

Our tastings include:
• the ultralight and delicious orange blossom fougasse
• sickly sweet candied fruit
• socca, the only true Niçois fast food
• les Petits Farcies—literally "the little stuffed ones"
• pissaladiere—there is no such thing as too much onion!
• Swiss Chard in a way you'd never imagine it
• the humble side of Riviera wine
• plus various surprises...

The tour runs every day except Monday and starts at 9.45 am. There are additional times on some days. We do not run tours every day out of season (November - March inclusive).
The tour lasts about three and a half hours.
Do not plan for lunch after the tour!
Our precise tastings may change without prior notice.
Please let us know of any dietary requirements prior to the tour and we'll do our best to accommodate them.

Thelma was backpacking around Europe when she arrived in Nice 14 years ago from Ireland and stayed ever since. She fell in love with the azure blue sea, the colours, the culture, the food and the diversity of the old and the new town. She will share everything she loves about Nice with a glowing passion. Gustav is a Swede exiled on the French Riviera since 1998. Itinerant at heart, he has lived in about 47 different locations on the Riviera since then and enjoys exploring its every nook and cranny.

Fantastic! Locals who know their stuff, but not an ounce of stuffiness.

This is a fantastic tour that will give you the chance to understand the culture and taste the unique flavor of Nice. Gustav was a a wonderful guide and his personality brought a lot of excitement to the tour. This tour is definitely recommended for those of any age visiting Nice, France that may want to do something fun besides staring at a map and wasting precious time getting lost as a tourist. It was well worth our time. Just be ready to walk and be ready to try some unique snacks!
