Very nice tour... glad we did it. The drive from Marseille to Cassis was phenomenal. Enjoyed the boat cruise to visit the Calanques and the quantness of the village of Cassis. Would highly recommend this half day tour to anyone visiting Marseille.
This was worth the money. Our guide Matthew was great, knowledgeable and accommodating! The view of the inlets around Cassis are amazing.
We enjoyed the tour and the guide. Both my wife and I thought it was well organized and well managed. I also thought the length of each activity was just about right. All we wanted was an overview of some of the highlights in the Marseilles vicinity and that's what we got.
Our first tour of the week and I'm still thinking about it two weeks later. Our guide, Cédric, was great. He was funny, very knowledgeable and made sure we had a good time. The tour is a lot of fun, especially the calanques cruise. Cassis was a lot more crowded that we anticipated but Cédric got us through and we even had time to relax with a delicious lunch. The tour van was comfortable and we all enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour.
Lovely tour and very nice views. The leader was very informative and well english speaking. I recommend this tour.
EXCELLENT tour and guide. Great destinations and super value. Cassis and Calanques are gorgeous. We got to see a fabulous amount of things and great variety in an afternoon. Very relaxed and enjoyable.
This tour exceeded our expectations and we were very lucky to have the pick up point right in front of our hotel. Cedric, our tour guide was fabulous, The fishing village of Cassis was the best, This quaint little village was very picturesque, the boat ride to see the cliffs and calanques were the highlight of the trip and well worth seeing. I would definitely recommend this tour while visiting Marseille.
We did more than I thought we would, the tour of Marseille was nice and the cruise was spectacular. Even got a free hour in Cassis to explore.
Beautiful scenery and a lovely guide. Weather did not permit us to cruise out to Calanques so we were fortunate to tour the Bodin winery for tasting. I purchased a few delicious wines and brought one home to the US for a treat. Go see the churches of Marseille and drive along the Mediterainean Sea. The color is aqua sometimes.
exelent service, great experiense. highly recomended.
i will book viator again. thank you!
Paco our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. His office people were not.
The tour to Cassis and near by and the fabulous Calanques by boat for 45 minutes was just unbelievable and absolutely worth seeing. We saw three Calanques and thoroughly enjoyed the trip to complete satisfaction,
It was exactly I dreamed. The guide's commentaries and her kindness were really what I needed. I highly recommend this tour, it's comfortable and joyful.
Our excellent English-major guide provided a personalized tour that fully met the sightseeing description and then some. If in Marseilles for several days, a worthwhile half-day side trip.
The guide was excellent and had a lot of local knowledge about Marseille and Provence in general.
One of the best tours we've been on. Great tour guide. Coverage was really good, especially being taken up to the church with the view over Marseille and down to the fishing village at the end of the road (very scenic). Guide also deviated to show one of the people something they particularly requested, but didn't make the tour run late or miss anything out. Well worth doing!
Great guide, wonderful tour of the Calanques and visit in Cassis.
My daughter and I enjoyed our tour. The guide who picked us up and drove us to Cassis was great. The guide on the boat ride did not speak in English, but instead handed us a piece of paper in English for us to read. The other 6 on the boat spoke another language, so I think he spoke in French. But that did not bother us, since we went mainly to enjoy the sights. Would have liked to see 2 more inlets. He drove us into 3. It was a gorgeous day, and the town was quaint. This was my 3rd Viator tour. I did 2 in Italy. You are very reliable, and I thank you!
Exploring the Calanques is really exciting, as each inlet is more spectacular than the last. The water is set against steep cliffs, with stunning beaches tucked into the inlets. Stunning, highly recommended.
The water was a bit rough and it was pouring with rain. The boat driver was not very well prepared as he knew it was going to be wet - it was already raining when we arrived - he was only putting up the canopy as we arrived. Therefore we all got wet whilst waiting for him to get ready. The canopy was not very good either as it kept pooling with water which ended up all over some of the passengers. The scenery on the other hand was excellent.
Both churches in Marseille were worth seeing - the Notre-Dame de la Garde on the heights with great views and the peaceful Abbey of Saint Victor.
The Corniche des Crêtes road and Cape Canailles, en route to Cassis, were spectacular - though perhaps not ideal if you are uncomfortable with heights! The tour blurb should have a warning on this..
The highlight was definitely the spectacular boat cruise of the Calanques. A pity the commentary was only In French, but with views like this who needs commentary?
After the cruise we had a generous allocation of time to explore the town of Cassis - 90 min was perhaps a little too long, but the town is definitely worth exploring, and has great food.
Driver well-informed and enthusiastic.
It was a nice trip. The guide cum driver was really nice,helpful and knowledgeable....nice sense of humor also. Would recommend the same to my friends for sure
This tour gave us the highlights of Marseilles with excellent view points and descriptions of the history of such a cosmopolitan and fascinating city.Our guides Gail and Matthieu were prompt and professional..meeting us at Radisson Blu at the Vieux Port. The drive down to Cassis took us through an area of Marseilles busy with the fans of Rugby when Toulon were to play Toulouse...then on to the coastal resort of Cassis. Despite windy conditions our cruise of 3 Calanques went ahead..scenic and very comfortable. Followed by about an hour of free time in this small relaxed resort.We would recommend this 1/2 day tour for those without a car and with limited time.
