He regularly Vlogs about life on the French Riviera and is fascinated by tales of this magical stretch of coastline, often dubbed ‘a sunny place for shady people.’
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to French Riviera with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 60 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from French Riviera. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

Tim is always fun and fireworks are always fun. But we also had a tour before and after around the town. He found the perfect viewing spot. He will never run out of stories love his take on life in general. It would’ve been a wonderful tour with or without fireworks
