My fiancée and I spend two and a half weeks travelling the south of France, northern Spain and Paris. This was easily the best tour of the seventeen days. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable and the scenery was incredible. The views of the city from the mountaintop Basilica were breathtaking, yet still paled in comparison to the views of the Mediterranean in the Calanques National Park. Everything was stunning. Although the roads were hilly the bikes were electric so it was a very relaxed day of sightseeing. If youre in Marseilles do yourself a favour and add this to your to do list. Its a tour of a lifetime one you will not soon forget!

This was our favorite part of our 2 week trip in Europe. Leo was a fantastic guide. There were 8 of us on a cruise together so we were able to go as our own group. Our kids are 14 and 15 and pretty comfortable on bikes so it was no problem for them. You will be biking part of the time on crowded streets so I might have been nervous if the kids were a lot younger. This was all of our first time riding an ebike and we are hooked. You can bike using your own muscle power or switch over to the electric power whenever you need it you will need it for some of hills!. Great blend of seeing city sites and the Calanques National Park. Leo asked us in advance whether we wanted to get lunch for picnic or stop at a restaurant. We choose the restaurant and it was really fantastic - beautiful scenery and excellent French seafood. I highly recommend this excursion.

Highly recommended. The view of the Calanques is definitely worth it. I forgot our guide's name but he was really nice and had lots of insight on the city. E-bike makes the ride fairly easy. When we got to the sea, the guide allowed us to take a small break so we decided hike up one of the hills and have a beautiful view of the Mediterranean I would personally recommend taking that small hike. He was patient with us.

One thing to have in mind is that there are little to no bike lanes in Marseille, but that is out of the control of the tour. The drivers were good with sharing the road.

Again, a highly recommended tour if you're in Marseille.

This is one of the best cycle tours I've been on. We had a group of 4 all friends and our fantastic guide.
City, sun, countryside, beach, swim and the Notre Dame cathedral.

Cecile was our guide. She was informative and gave a great tour to my husband and me. Yes it was just the two of us. This was a great orientation to the city, we had so much fun. Electric Bikes are really easy to learn and made the steep hills of Marseille doable.. It was amazing to get up close to the Mediterranean and see the Calanques.

Best way to see the main city sights of Marseille. Emmanuel and Elise are helpful and friendly. The ebike tour was fun. This company is very trustworthy and respond to emails promptly. I will definitely book with them again for a second bike tour when I return to Marseille.

This tour was one of the highlights of our 15 day trip to Europe. I was a little concered on how it was going to be on a long bike ride but the E-Bike made it all the better! Emmanuel was our guide and he took us on many beautiful stops. One of our stops was at a small cafe were we ordered lattes and pastries which we ate at the cafe and then we ordered baguette sandwiches to go to. Emmanuel took us to a gorgeous area overlooking the Mediterranean to eat our French baguette sandwiches, yum! Ask for Emmanuel when booking this tour. He is very knowledgeable, informative, and a fun guy too. Thanks Emmanuel and to your team for making our trip to Marseille so great!

Une superbe journée passée à visiter Marseille du vieux port à Callelongue le bout du monde en passant par Notre dame de la Garde avec un guide passionnant narrant l'histoire de la ville et des monuments. A faire sans modération.

This tour was a wonderful way to complete our vacation in Provence. We cycled the bike does 95 of the work to historic and scenic locations in Marseille, then headed along the coast to a National Park called 'End of the World' by the locals. At our first coffee break I love French coffee we bought sandwiches which we had for lunch at a small village harbor. On the way back we climbed to a famous cathedral for panoramic views of the city. Our guide was friendly, informative, and fun to cycle with. Very good English. Overall, a relaxing, healthy, fun six hours of exploring the Marseille coast.

Manu was great. You can tell he loves his city. He knows the legends, the local stories, and all the details. He even gave us dinner recommendations.

The tour took us all around town, let us experience the city, showed us the coast and park, and enjoy the great Marseille weather. We were thoroughly pleased. We stopped for lunch at a great restaurant he gave us the choice between a nice restaurant and sandwiches and we all agreed a great restaurant was the way to go.

Fantastic! I highly recommend this tour! Just wear a hat. I foolishly didn't and got heat sickness and had to drop out before reaching the church. Other than that, the views you will see are amazing!

The Electric Bike Tour from Marseille to the Calanques was our favorite day of a wonderful trip! My daughter and I were with a group of 5 other guests and the wonderful tour guide, Lionel. Lionel and Emmanuel the owner of the company taught us everything we needed to know about the bikes and Lionel kept a good pace that everyone was able to manage. The stops he chose and the info that he gave us on each stop were great...good info in English and French. We had time to explore the areas where we stopped and had a delicious lunch with the group at the restaurant. Great fun!

This is a must for anyone who wishes to see the beautiful clanques in all their glory! You cover a lot of ground on this tour and go to places you would never get to see unless you have a car or like to hike.

The bikes made it a breeze to get around, even going up the steep hills to Notre Dame was doable.

Manu, our guide was fantastic and incredibly patient with us, constantly giving us tips along the way which helped us plan the rest of our trip.

It was just the 3 of us and a couple of us weren't very steady on the bikes and roads, but Manu made us feel very safe and gave us plenty of time to rest and soak up the stunning views along the way. He also took us to a wonderful cafe that sold amazing sandwiches which we ate at our beach stop.

We only wish we'd had more time to spend at Notre Dame, however this was partly our own fault for spending too long at each stop.

Highly recommend this tour with this company to anyone visiting Marseille!

Emanuel was a great tour guide. He had a lot of enthusiasm for the city and was very knowledgeable. He took us to some interesting calanques withing the city limits and we feasted on delicious food at a local, but free from tourists, restaurant. Despite this, I was disappointed with the tour, we visited the calanques within Marseille, but ended at the beginning of the national park where the famous and most beautiful calanques begin. I wish I had known this before the tour, as I may have spent my money elsewhere.

Tours negligently/inattentively conducted. I got injured at tour, ending up with broken teeth, where tour guide/ebike boss offered no material help, with Marseilles riad users.called police ambulence for me.
Result is that my front teeth found dead with root canal and fake teeth to follow.
