Our guide, Raphaela, was excellent! Very warm, great sense of humor, and knowledgeable about the Calanques. Safety oriented and made sure everyone had a great time! Three hours was tiring for the kids, but it went by too fast for the adults. Gear was in good condition, and we were rewarded at the end with refreshing lemonade.

It was a great experience! The guide is not only an interesting person but also takes his time! He answers all questions and makes the tour very interactive! Clear recommendation!
