Fantastic experience! We had a smaller group led by our wonderful guide Pierre. The tour was super fun, Pierre was engaging, friendly and very enthusiastic with telling us about Marseille’s history and landmarks whenever we stopped to look at things. The cycling wasn’t really challenging at all! There are some steep uphills but you barely feel it with the bicycle’s assisted pedalling. Marseille has dedicated bicycle paths, but take note you’ll be cycling quite close to traffic sometimes. We saw parts of Marseille that we never would have on our own if we hadn’t booked this tour, easily the best part of our trip. Absolutely recommend booking this for anyone visiting Marseille, beautiful city!

our guide, Florence, made the tour an unforgettable experience. She explained all issues with a deep knowledge and in an interesting way. she had an excellent English. She was very attentive to our questions and wishes. the tour was well organized, has good balance between the the visiting time and the ride to them. the car was comfortable and suited the number of passengers.

Absolutely brilliant tour, not to be missed. Very interesting to hear about how Marseille, came to be a tourist destination. Practical and comfortable way to see Aix-en-Provence and Cassis. Decent amount of free time dedicated to exploring both towns on your own, with good suggestions of things to see.

Cyndie at the top, listening to her tourists. Made us share his little hidden corners. Very nice walk, we recommend. Easy walk accessible to the greatest number.

The guide was kind, well-studied, and I understood the historical background very well. Also, the French guide's English was almost perfect.
