A really great experience. The landscape is very beautiful and the tour varied. My husband and I are on a medium fitness level, have never ridden an e-bike before and have no mountain bike experience (we only ride city bikes from time to time). The guide did a good job. At the beginning there was an introduction to handling the bikes and during the tour he regularly told us how best to handle the sections of the route. At the stops he kept telling us something about the landscape. In places it is a bit strenuous despite the e-bike, but doable. We really enjoyed the tour and can definitely recommend it.

Must do if you are in Marseille. Magnificent landscapes, breathtaking view of the creeks and the panorama at the top. It was wonderful especially with the guide who took his time explaining the efforts on the climbs and how to switch modes and speeds on the mountain bike. Climbing becomes a breeze with Turbo mode lol.

fantastic way to see the Calanques National Park and nearby towns

This e-mountain bike tour is an excellent way to see the Calanques National Park and nearby villages. The bikes were in good order, and the route was great including a mix of beachside streets, walking paths and rocky, hilly hiking paths. I am a regular cyclist with familiarity with riding over rocks and sand but someone with little experience might find the handling a little daunting. You don't have to be in super shape -- the e-bikes work great getting you up the grades. Meeting location was easy to find, and easily accessible by Metro and bus from downtown Marseille. I felt like it was a good value. And we had fun going to the beach across the street to cool off afterward!
