What You Can Expect
Delight in the charm of Aix-en-Provence with a leisurely 4-hour city tour. Your excursion begins with morning pickup from Marseille Vieux Port, where you’ll meet your guide and board the air-conditioned coach for short ride north through the charming Provençal countryside.
Disembark near Cours Mirabeau, Aix’s chic central thoroughfare lined with 17th- and 18th-century mansions. Snap memorable photos of the rich architecture and artistic accents as you make your way to Vieil Aix (Old Town). In this seductive and historic center, you’ll accompany your guide through the winding streets and explore charming boutiques, cafés and markets. Admire spectacular fountains such as the Four Dolphins Fountain and the Place d’Albertas fountain, and grand venues like Cardeurs Square, Saint Sauveur Cathedral and Hôtel de Ville (City Hall).
Afterwards, enjoy some free time and perhaps visit the Atelier Paul Cézanne at Les Lauves (own expense), the final studio of Aix’s famous son. View the preserved space and attend an exclusive art workshop.
Your 4-hour tour ends with a scenic ride back to the departure point in Marseille.
Aix en Provence was beautiful and we really enjoyed ourselves. The Cours Mirabeau is quite peaceful and is perfect for a walk in the sunshine. This tour is more of a self-guided walking tour so bring good shoes and your camera. Our guide, Cédric, was a joy and helped make this a great afternoon. You will wish you had more time to spend in Aix en Provence!
We had a wonderful tour with our guide, Lea. There were just the two of us on this tour! Our guide accompanied us on a walking tour and then we had about 60-90 minutes to explore on our own. It was a good overview of Aix but you would definitely need more time to see everything. This met our expectations and more!
Great tour! Very knowledgeable and personable guide! We loved it!
Marjelene (?) from Tour company is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
The downside is Provence Tour was bought by another company and the phone number was disconnected. I suggest Viator should provide the uptodate phone number. I wasted two days trying to contact Provence Tour on the number indicated on the voucher.
