Full description
There are some places you can’t help falling in love with at first sight and Cassis is one of them! Your afternoon excursion to Cassis begins in Marseille where you meet your friendly tour guide. Set off for an unforgettable visit and take in the panoramic view from the Cape Canaille, the highest maritime cliff in Europe (photo stop) as you go. Arriving in Cassis, walk around the old fishing port, with all its colourful boats. Possibility to have lunch or swimming/sun-bathing). You will have the possibility to embark on a 45-min cruise from Cassis to discover the calanques, limestone cliffs which dive into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean sea and create natural coves (fat, rocky claws that resemble Norwegian fjords and poke out into the sea) (the cruise ticket is not included). You will be in Aix en Provence for the rest of the excursion. Stroll on the famous Cours Mirabeau dotted with refreshing fountains. Admire the private mansions from 17th and 18th centuries. Free time before to drive back to Marseille. Please note: We cannot be held responsible if the Calanques cruise is cancelled due to bad weather or if the Crest road and the access to Cap Canaille are closed (no refund can be claimed).

Tutto ha funzionato come un orologio svizzero: la nostra guida, la simpatica Florence, è stata estremamente professionale. Parla ottimi francese ed inglese, ed è stata anche una perfetta guidatrice. L'auto, una cross over Mercedes nuova, era estremamente comoda e pulita. Abbiamo imparato un sacco di cose nuove nel corso della nostra gita. Grazie, Florence!

Marseille is a nice port to visit and Cassis is a picturesque village which we could not get enough of. The guide was very nice and friendly and very knowledgable not only about the areas we visited but all of provence. We had a rainy day but it still was splendid. The boat tour was great as well.. those beautiful calanques and blue sea!

It was an enjoyable and hassle free way to see some of Marseilles considering the volume of traffic in the city and the drive to Cassis provided some nice views. The boat ride was very good as well. Overall a great way to see the area. Our guide provided us with a memorable experience.
