What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Aix-en-Provence from Marseille

Discover the highlights of Aix en Provence on your half-day visit

Depart from Marseille in your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the charming town of Aix-en-Provence. Located within easy driving distance of Marseille, Aix is an ideal place to visit for those keen to see a little more of France during their time in Marseille.

Stroll tree-lined boulevards such as the beautiful Cours Mirabeau with your guide, and soak up the town’s wonderful atmosphere. Marvel at the 17th- and 18th-century private mansions that line the route and perhaps pose for photographs with your friends.

Aix-en-Provence is bursting with chic boutiques, bustling town squares and markets, attractive fountains, traditional cafés and sites of special interest. See the Fountain of the Four Dolphins, the Fountain of the Preachy, Albertas Square, City Hall, Cardeurs Square and the Saint Sauveur Cathedral, and admire the architectural wealth Aix has to offer.

Paul Cézanne was a famous French Post-Impressionist painter who called Aix-en-Provence home, and the city remains justifiably proud. Visit Cézanne’s studio, join a painting workshop and gain an insight into his life and works. Entry is at your own expense.

After four hours discovering the delights of Aix-en-Provence, return to Marseille where your tour will come to an end.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Four of us - two couples - were escorted by Florence for four hours. We had a fabulous time. Florence was waiting for us at the scheduled time. She provided interesting history and commentary throughout the drive to Aix en Provence. We were there on a Sunday morning, so the city was very quiet. Unexpectedly, Florence gave us a walking tour of the center of town. She was very knowledgeable and had a wonderful sense of just how much to pass along to us. We then had some free time to do a bit of shopping (though many stores not open on Sunday), and enjoy one of the many cafes. This was just the sort of calm, leisurely time that we were looking for in this beautiful city. We could not have had a better driver and guide.

Great guide and winery tour. Just the right sized group.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

Our tour was amazing and very informative. Our guide Anais, was flexible and extremely knowledgeable. It was one of the highlights of our trip!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

Our guide was very knowledgeable and her warm way of describing very old buildings brought history to life. I'd like to have been able to spend more time wandering the local market. I'll use Viator again in the future.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

Pick up and drop off was great - would have liked I a bit more information on places to eat/drink

4 star rating: Recommended July 2010

Door to door service is great. Very knowledgeable guide/driver. You get to see much more than on a do-it-yourself tour.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2011

Even though my reservation was for 2 p.m. on Thursday, they didn't arrive because they thought it was for Friday. They arrived over a hour late-and even though the tour was to center on Cezanne, it was very difficult to get the tour guide to do that. He kept wanting to discuss the architectural design of Aix-including dragging us to his house to see a reception room. If someone wants a tour of Paul Cezanne (or any local son/daughter), then the guide should follow that on a private tour.
