Unfortunately our cruise ship was unable to dock because of high winds. We were really disappointed to miss the tour. Luckily one of our phones worked in Europe and we were able to contact the local tour company and explain what was happening. They couldn't have been nicer and gave the go-ahead to refund our money. When we got home we had to phone Viator to complete this. We thought this was very good customer service from both the local company and Viator. We will of course, continue to use Viator.

We scheduled this small group tour well in advance of our cruise from Barcelona. However, the cruise line changed their arrival schedule while we were on our way to Marseille. We were able to connect with the tour contact and they were amazing! Not only did they rearrange the tour schedule to start later, they also picked us up at the cruise terminal. Our guide, Alexandre Reynders, met us in front of the building and he took us on a fantastic tour in a clean, comfortable and late model Mercedes van. It turned out that my wife and I were the only participants that day which allowed for a more in-depth discussion and visit. We went to Aix-en-Provence, a fabulous town about 45 minutes away. The town was quite nice with great stores, street vendors and restaurants. We then went to the hills overlooking Cassis and had spectacular views off the cliffs. We then had about an hour to stroll around Cassis, have lunch, and enjoy the harbor view. From there, we went back to Marseille and had a stop at the Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica, which is a beautiful Catholic church that overlooks all of Marseille. The view is fantastic. Our guide, Alex, was courteous, informative and quite knowledgeable. We truly enjoyed our day together and highly recommend the tour.

Had an amazing day with our guide Alex. The company was very accommodating, and were happy to take just the two of us since we were only in town for one day. We went to the markets in Aix, where we sampled delicacies in the markets, and the stores before going to the cathedral and eventually onto Cassis. We had about 90 minutes free time alone in Cassis, so went to a pub and had an amazing lunch. After meeting Alex again, he took us to the top of the city Point Pin which has the best views in France- apparently their version of the Amalfi coast! For someone who wants to experience Provence in comfort and with a tour guide that is down to earth, understanding and allows you to stop and shop in the market etc. this is the tour to do. Alex, merci beaucoup!

This was so unexpectedly delightful. Our Guide Anais was thoughtful, knowledgeable and took great care of us. We traveled in a Mercedes mini van and did not worry about anything. The tour was full of information and interesting. We took the additional charge boat ride and our guide made sure we got the right tickets and the right boat. Well worth the additional price. Still amazed that o picked this tour months before based on the reviews and that everything worked so smoothly.

Our tour guide, Adrienne, was great - friendly, knowledgeable and fluent in English. After meeting in Marseille we drove to Aix-en-Provence for a guided walk through the historic part of the town and some free time. We then drove to the cliffs overlooking Cassis, a picturesque fishing village, where we had some free time to look around or have lunch, before heading back to Marseille. Would highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Sylvia was an incredible resource, smart, knowledgeable, witty and made sure our experience was exceptional. The van we were picked up in was air conditioned, spacious and clean. Aix en Provence, our first stop is not to be missed. We arrived early in the morning and it literally felt like we were the only folks in town, we had beat the rush/crush of tourists. Excellent market and shops and centuries of history to explore in the town. We also went on to Cassis which was stunning!! I recommend taking the boat tour as well. Lovely lunch in Cassis and then back to Marseille. A great time was had by everyone in our party of 6 - overall a wonderful day. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour is really value for money. We spent a considerable amount of time wandering around Aix. The guide was charming and had a lot of information to share about the history and stories of the area. She pointed out a lot of details that we would have missed if we had been on our own. We then went to Cassis. Although the sea was rough the boats were still taking passengers to the calanques which is worthwhile doing. Cassis is very much a tourist town in summer so be prepared for masses of people.

This was a fabulous tour! We only wish we had more free time in lovely Aix-en-Provence to explore the shops before heading to Cassis. Lucy was a delightful guide in Aix, and Emma who took us to Cassis was more accommodating than we could ask for! She altered her schedule to complete our tour after the desired cruise time was full and we had to do a slightly later one. Highly recommend!

Great day and Sylvia was an excellent host. Given she grew up in Aix she was really passionate and knew the area inside out. Fitting Aix en Provence and Cassis into a half day means you don't have a lot of time in each place, I would recommend a full day if you can.
