What people are saying about Marseille Provence Cruise Terminal

It was a great interesting tour. The e-bikes were comfortable and easy to ride. Pierre, our friendly guide, meandered us through Marseille on cycle paths or roads with little traffic. He told us many exciting stories and facts about Marseille. At the end he drove us back to the ship. We can only recommend this tour.

The group size is small so it feels almost like a private tour and more intimate. Our guide, Greg, was very knowledgeable and helpful. Because of the small group size, we were able to customise our itinerary and focus on where we want to spend more time on.

Very informative and great e-bike ride. Recommend for everyone on cruise. We saw pretty much all of Marseille in a few hours. Marie was a great guide. The pickup from the port also worked well.

Silvin was AMAZING!!! We had so much fun going all over Marseille on the half-day tour! There is nothing boring about an E-Bike tour! We experienced so much in a half- day! Highly Recommend!!

Very nice tour with a great guide. The pickup and return transport also worked well.
