Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Traveling by electric bike allows you to see the city's most popular landmarks without getting tired. And your local guide takes you off the beaten track for a behind-the-scenes view of the real Marseille.

Your morning or afternoon two hours and a half tour of France’s oldest city departs from Marseille Vieux Port. Meet your local guide and get acquainted with the deluxe electric bike. Fit with a small motor and optional baby seats and trailers, this modern ride allows you and your family to cover a lot of ground with ease.

First, cruise to the Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), the 18th-century coastal mansion that stands like a sentinel on the entry to the Old Port. Admire the bustling waterway before heading inland to view Notre-Dame de la Garde, a Neo-Byzantine Catholic basilica that rises from Marseille’s highest point, and the Abbey of Saint Victor.

Continue toward Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy) for a leisurely ride along the sun-kissed coastal boulevard. Along the way, pedal past scenes of French life such as locals playing pétanque – favorite game of balls – and fishermen working in the village of Vallon des Auffes and the quaint cove Anse de Malmousque. Stop to snap great photos, get insider tips and learn fascinating anecdotes about Marseille’s long history from your savvy guide. You’ll also have a chance to stop for some lunch or refreshments (own expense).

The three hours and a half tour upgrade includes a trip through the ambient Le Panier neighborhood, the oldest quarter in Marseille. Coast through picturesque lanes and under terraced houses strung with clotheslines. Admire the striking façade of the Marseille Cathedral and the Museum of the Civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM), a strikingly modern accent on Marseille’s ancient waterfront.

Your leisurely electric bike tour concludes at its starting point in Vieux Port.

Hey all....we booked a couple of trips through Viator and thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd one. We would have truly enjoyed this one as well, if it was only my husband and I. The City is not prepar ed for Cyclists so is definitely not for kids or anyone who is intimidated by motorists. We had our 13 year old with us and he was scared the entire time. The city has steep hills and the motorists are unyielding. Unfortunately the site implies that this trip is ok for kids. Its really not. I do wish that it had as another electric bike tour is available to and through the national park. It likely would have been more appropriate for my son. Our guide was SUPER and very kind!

Guide was very good. This is a physically demanding trip up a steep hill at one point. Suggest guide ensure everyone is in lowest gear to easily make it up the hill.

The tour was meant to be four hours but we had people with us who only paid for three. We were offered the additional hour but only after we returned to the shop so the other two could return their bikes. Also, this turned into a multilingual tour and the people who did not speak much English monopolized the tour guides time and he seemed ok with that. The bikes were fine but the route is almost all in traffic and the guide was always very far ahead. He took us through some very narrow spots, I was uncomfortable for most of the ride. We are seasoned bike riders and have been on many bike tours, this one was not great

Great way to see a lot of the city and get your bearings. Don't take it if you are a history buff looking for detailed history lessons. The electric bike makes it possible to see a great deal in a limited time and without exerting yourself. Marc did an excellent job guides us through traffic and busy streets. Melanie, although in training, was superb as well.

The electric bikes were a great way to get around in Marseille! Our guide was sweet and shared lots of information about the city. We were able to cover a lot of ground during our tour and the bikes make the hills a breeze!
