What You Can Expect

Marseille Shore Excursion: Private Electric Bike Tour

See the sights of Marseille on your electric bike tour

Your morning or afternoon 4-hour tour of France’s oldest city departs from your cruise terminal. Disembark at port and meet your local guide who will help you get acquainted with the deluxe electric bike, a safe and intuitive vehicle. Fit with a small motor and optional baby seats and trailers, this modern ride allows you and your family see more sights in less time.
First, cruise to the Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), the 18th-century coastal mansion that stands like a sentinel at the entry of 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 through the ambient Le Panier quarter, Marseille’s oldest neighborhood. Coast through picturesque lanes and under terraced houses strung with clotheslines and pass by Marseille Cathedral, a French national monument.
Next head to the Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy) for a leisurely ride along the sun-kissed coastal road. Along the way, pedal past scenes of French life such as locals playing pétanque – a popular bocce-style game – and fishermen working in the village of Vallon des Auffes and the quaint cove Anse de Malmousque. Capture great photos and hear intriguing stories of Marseille’s long history from your savvy guide. You’ll also have a chance to stop for refreshments (own expense) before returning to the port to re-board your ship.

This was one of the highlights of our week. I don't know the exact name of our guide - I think Kimre - she was absolutely wonderful. We loved learning about the passion she has for Marseille. She was great explaining things to us as well as our 17 and 18 year old boys. I would absolutely do this type of a tour again in any other city. We really loved seeing this city on bike as well as stopping for a few local bites to eat. Excellent job!

great way to see the sights. Some of the streets were a little challenging travelling alongside other vehicles but a lot of fun for the most part


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This was the highlight of my 10 days trip to Europe this year. Our tour guide Emmanuel Manu from E Bike was super and funny. The ride was excellent and the electric bike was so helpful and fun. Marseille is so beautiful and the best seafood that I ever ate. I will definitely come back and stay longer and will take a full day tour to Calanques on electric bike. Make sure to stop by Cafe Des Arts for coffee, my best cafe au lait so far.

We absolutely loved this tour! We did this tour in the middle of a seven day cruise. The tour company was right on time and picked us up right from the ship! There were several other groups from our ship that also took the same tour but we were broken up by group so it was pretty much like having a private tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and super friendly. The tour was SO MUCH FUN and a welcome break from the regular old fashioned tour where you are in a bus or van all day. The bikes were easy to operate and super fun. I would definitely recommend taking this tour if you find yourself in Marseille!

The highlight of our month long European trip! Cindy met us at the ship, drive us to where the bikes are and got us set up. Then, we toured the city while she gave us a history lesson and took us to secret beaches and landmarks. I couldn't stop smiling the whole ride and we all thought it was the best excursion we had been on family with a 18,16 snd 13 yr old

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

One of my favorite tours and a great way to see the sites, but also the back roads of the city. These electric bikes are so much fun - you can go virtually anywhere. Our guide took us to some beautiful scenic locations as well as up the hill to Notre Dame. We arranged a private tour so it would be just our small group which made it even more fun. One of the bike chains broke during the tour but was quickly fixed. A wonderful tour - would highly recommend.
