Marseille Shore Excursion: City Sightseeing Tour of Marseille
Short but sweet
, Oct 2019
Great experience ! It was a short excursion but saw the highlights of Marseille. Norte Dame de la Garde is a must see! Magnificent view of the city!! Palais Longchamp is Insta worthy!
Tour guide knows the city very well. He was on time, instructions on the voucher as to where to meet is on point. Was taken to the highlights of the city as described in voucher. Great driving skills! Wish we could have stayed longer to explore the city.
First we were asked to be at meeting point 15 min. before 9AM, no one was there. Guide was late bus 15 min. late. Mind you we were total stranger outside the port. We did not visit 2 of the promised sites.
Spend the morning exploring Marseilles’ historical neighborhoods on a small-group tour with a guide. Perfect for visitors looking to maximize their time in the city, the tour covers many of the city’s main sights in half a day. Peruse shops and restaurants in the along the water in the old port, and take in panoramic views along the Cape Croisette.

Fantastic tour and amazing tour guide
, Jan 2020
This tour was amazing. If you can ride a bike you will love it. Learn about Marseille from a beautiful local. You get to see the whole city and learn about the history of this spectacular port. Highly recommended.
Despite a little confusion as to the pick up point at the cruise dock, we managed to meet our guide for the day, Valentino. After getting to our starting point, having a safety review and a quick lesson in operating the bikes we were off.
Valentino took us to some amazing locations where he gave us local histories and time to view the surroundings and take photos. One stop was at Vallon des Auffes, a great little fishing port. We stopped for lunch at a very nice seaside café prior to the climb to the Notre Dame de la Garde basilica where we watched military helicopters do training over the port.
Valentino is a fantastic guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Marseille, Very friendly, patient, kind, with some great stories.
Thank you Valentino for a great day.
Don't be afraid, just do it! Super nice family owned company with great guides. This was our first electric bike use and tour ever and it was awesome! We were on a cruise ship, I booked it thru Viator and they met us at our port and brought us to the bikes, gave us instructions, helmets and our small group of 8 followed our guide all over it was awesome!

Our guide personalized this tour to our wishes since we had such a small group. He allowed us additional time in Aix en Provence because we were enjoying ourselves so much. He even purchased each of us a treat in a local bakery and had several recommendations for lunch depending on our preferences. We were all very pleased with his professionalism and personalized service.
Great shore excursion of three regional highlights!
, Sep 2019
We knew we wanted to see Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, and Marseille during our time in port, but it was difficult to find excursions (through the ship or independently) that provided all three. This one fit the bill! Posted this excursion on our CruiseCritic roll call and filled a private group of 7 quickly. Romain worked with us to change the time to suit our ship. Although he had a family situation arise, he arranged for his colleague, Benjamin, to escort us. Benjamin was gracious, patient, and informative throughout the day. We really appreciated his extensive walking tour in Aix-en-Provence, the orientation in Cassis, and the orientation to the Marseille cathedral. We also liked the balance of structured, guided time and the opportunity for free time. We were disappointed to not see the calanques or Cape Canaille, but the road was closed - not Benjamin's fault. Thanks for a great experience! Would definitely recommend.
Our guide, Romain, was very personable and informative. The group was a nice small size of about 15 which is perfect.
We rode on a small tour bus - it had decorations over some of the windows which was not the best, but we sat in the back with the clear window. It was air conditioned and comfortable.
He gave us free time here and there which was great, the market in Aix was awesome, I wish we had more time in it.
The only thing that was disappointing was that we didn't get to go on the boat tour in Cassis that I had read about in other tours, but that's my fault for not noticing it wasn't on the stop.
All in all I would recommend it. I was worried since there were no reviews, but it was great.

From $90.45 (Price varies by group size )
, Nov 2019
What a trip, the e-bikes are easy to ride and the ground you cover to the calanques - 30km - is amazing. The views! The sights! The water - soooo cold, but a once in a lifetime experience. Lunch was delicious. The stop off at the Notre Dame on the way back was tough getting up the steep hill, made much easier with the e-bike, but the view once up there was breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, just brilliant.
My sister and I (early 30s) just took this tour last week and loved it! We were hesitating as we're relatively active and didn't know if this would be too slow moving but the pace was great, we got to see a lot of the beautiful Calaquentes, and our guide was awesome!! Very accomodating, friendly, went out of her way to ensure we had a great trip! Best way to get a tour around Marseille if there for a quick trip.

Our guide was excellent!. Clearly a highlight of our Mediterranean cruise. We especially enjoyed the Van Gogh Art show at Les Baux. Carrieres des Lumieres (Les Baux de Provence).

This was supposed to be a wheelchair accessible tour, but the guide showed up in a regular van, not one with a lift or ramp. It was a very expensive tour without that accessibility.

Marseille Shore Excursion - Full Day Wine Tour in Provence

We really enjoyed our visit to the 2 wineries and tastings at each one. I chose this tour because due to my husband’s knee problems he is unable to walk far. It was perfect. Our guide was excellent .her knowledge of English was very good and her in depth explanation of wine making in France was very thorough. The beautiful scenery and close up views of the estates made us feel we were seeing the ‘real France. We also visited the small town of Aix-en-Provence, a pretty old town with narrow streets and a square. We were the only 2 people on the tour so we truly had a private one!
