Very nice walk, even for inhabitants of Marseille. The bikes are of good quality and the electric motor makes the climbs quite doable. So sporty walk but not too much. The guide gives you plenty of anecdotes about the places crossed, which further enhances the walk even if it is enough on its own.

Absolutely superb from start to finish. Amazing scenery, fantastic e-bike which helped on the steeper roads, and super friendly professional guide. A++ HIGHLY recommend Note of caution: you need to be in decent shape OR with a group of similar athletic ability. The eBike will be a huge help but it’s not like you are riding a motorcycle or some effort is required.

Great opportunity to discover the Calanques

This e-Bike Tour is a great opportunity to discover the Calanques in a sporty but not too exhausting way - and even at 36 degree it was okay due to the wind while pedaling. Unfortunately there was an accident in our group before we could even get to the Clanaques and so the route was changed. Anyway, the guide improvised instead of cancelling the tour and we got to know some places around Marseille’s east. Simon was very nice and always tried to give us the best experience. I will definitely think about doing the full tour when back to Marseille one day. Small tip in the end: the place does not have any toilets and it is really difficult to find one during the tour.
