Ask for Natalie! We enjoyed a fantastic tour with Natalie starting from Aix-en-Provence to Cassis. Natalie drove us to Cassis in a comfortable minibus and is very entertaining along the way. Learn about the wines in the region and about the towns you pass. We took the optional boat tour to Les Calanques, and were promptly picked up by Natalie on return. Safe, efficient, and entertaining. Remember: ask for Natalie! Nous t'aime!

The group size is small so it feels almost like a private tour and more intimate. Our guide, Greg, was very knowledgeable and helpful. Because of the small group size, we were able to customise our itinerary and focus on where we want to spend more time on.

Xavier was great. He taught us a lot about the French Riviera and accommodated all our requests! Highly recommend

The Calanques boat trip was great, it's so beautiful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very nice.

Very nice day! The guide is kind, nice and helpful. The place is beautiful
