What You Can Expect

Cassis Half-Day Trip from Aix-en-Provence

Cassis Half-Day Trip from Aix-en-Provence

Meet your guide in central Aix-en-Provence and head down to the coast to the seaside town of Cassis – just under an hour away. After traveling along the scenic Corniche des Crêtes road, stop to admire dramatic coastal views of the Gulf of Cassis from Cape Canaille – the magnificent headland that tops France’s highest sea cliffs.

Head down the hills and stop in Cassis to walk around its pretty harbor, lined with pastel-painted houses of all different shapes and sizes. While big enough to call itself a town, it still enjoys the charm of an authentic Provencal fishing village, and its quaintness is something that’s definitely unique on the glitzy Cote d’Azur.

After getting acquainted with Cassis Harbour, how you spend the rest of your time is totally up to you! Perhaps hop aboard a sightseeing boat (own expense) and cruise to see the Cassis calanques – a series of magnificent limestone rock formations that jut out along the coastline. Said to have been formed by ancient streams, which have long since dried up, the long narrow bays are likened to fjords, featuring white sandy beaches lapped by the azure sea of the Med.

At the pre-arranged time, meet your guide in central Cassis, and return to central Aix-en-Provence by minibus.

We were met in Aix in timely fashion and then driven to the lovely town of Cassis on the Mediterranean Sea, Our guides were friendly and informative. When we arrived in Cassis, they dropped us off and designated a meeting place for our return to Aix. We had time for lunch and a walk through this charming town.

Great experience and our guide was personable, friendly and knowledgeable. We took the 45 minute boat tour whale at Cassis and it was amazing. We wish that we had some more time to spend in the village.

Half day tour gave us a glimpse of Cassis. If time permit, a full day tour would be more satisfying. Our guide Renault was very informative.

We didn't have much time to spend at the harbour, for our boat took for ever to depart, but the cruise to see the calanques was totally worthwhile. Don't miss it!

Basically it's just the driver drove n dropped us off at Cassi, it's not worth of the money, but Cassi on the other hand is a awesome village definitely worth of a day spent here
