Gale was such a great tour guide! She took us around all the best parts of Marseille before leaving to go to Cassis. She was so full of knowledge about Marseille! Luckily the winds did not affect our boat ride, but she had several other options lined up in case it was cancelled. The boat ride into the calanques was amazing! Unlike anything we've ever seen before. There was a good amount of driving time on this tour but Gale filled it all in with stories and history. Well worth the money!

This was a really nice tour with a very friendly guide. The boat trip was the highlight of the tour. I would just improve it by allowing costumers to stay for a bit longer in the city of Cassis, but anyways I would highly recommend it!

I was staying in Marseille for two nights and decided in this tour. The best thing about these Viator tours is the small group numbers.
Only 8 of us in a minivan with our guide, so it was so much better than being amongst a bus load of tourists trying to follow a guide.
We drove to Notre- Dame De la Garde, which is the Basilica on the hill overlooking Marseille and a good photo stop. Drove through Marseille and out to Cassis stopping at another ocean site along the way. The highlight for me was the drive up to Cap Caneill. It's a headland between the towns of Cassis and La Ciotat and is the highest sea cliff of France. It's a wow spot , excellent for photos and the road is sometimes shut if the winds are too strong. Fantastic view overlooking Cassis. Be aware there are no guard rails anywhere and some tourists were getting pretty close to the edge, but it's not to be missed. We went down to Cassis, where we had a couple of hours to wander. There was an option to go on a 45 min cruise to Les Calanques, but I opted to explore the streets of Cassis and enjoy an ice cream sundae. If you've got limited time on your trip, it's an ideal tour to go on.

This was a wonderful tour -- it took us through Marseille, including a stop at the impressive Notre Dame de la Gard, and then to Cassis. From Cassis, we took a delightful boat tour of three impressive calanaques. When we returned to the dock, we had 45 minutes to walk through Cassis and enjoy its ambiance as well as its thriving art scene. We also vanned up a windy road to a national park where we had an incredible vantage point allowed us to look out over the shimmering Mediterranean. Our tour giuide, Ben, was personalable and knowledgeable -- in a couple of languages! Great day.

This was the perfect tour for my first day in Marseille. It took us to key sites within the city and then on a nice drive down to Cassis with a relaxing boat tour through the inlets. What really made it was our OUTSTANDING guide, Victoria. She was SO knowledgeable and personable and her English was excellent. Plus she was very competent driver. I would highly recommend this tour to get started with a visit to Marseille.

Florence was a fantastic tour guide! She was informative, patient and super sweet. The weather did not allow us to take the cruise, but we were able to spend more time in Cassis, which was fantastic. There is no way that we would have been able to see all the sites if we tried to navigate to the same places within the 5.5 hour time block. This is definitely a great way to spend a day in the South of France.

This is a nice tour. Matt was a pleasant host and answered all my questions, including ones not related to the tour. You have time to see the two basilicas and then go for a short drive to Cassis. Obviously the cruise is the highlight of the trip. Otherwise, enjoy some ice cream in Cassis. There isn't a ton to do in Marseille, so I recommend this as a nice 1/2 day activity.

Great tour with a great tour guide. He showed the best parts of Marseille and took us to a most beautiful fishing village, Cassis like this better than famous Portofino in Italy.

We enjoyed the tour and the guide. Both my wife and I thought it was well organized and well managed. I also thought the length of each activity was just about right. All we wanted was an overview of some of the highlights in the Marseilles vicinity and that's what we got.

Our first tour of the week and I'm still thinking about it two weeks later. Our guide, Cédric, was great. He was funny, very knowledgeable and made sure we had a good time. The tour is a lot of fun, especially the calanques cruise. Cassis was a lot more crowded that we anticipated but Cédric got us through and we even had time to relax with a delicious lunch. The tour van was comfortable and we all enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour.

This tour exceeded our expectations and we were very lucky to have the pick up point right in front of our hotel. Cedric, our tour guide was fabulous, The fishing village of Cassis was the best, This quaint little village was very picturesque, the boat ride to see the cliffs and calanques were the highlight of the trip and well worth seeing. I would definitely recommend this tour while visiting Marseille.

Beautiful scenery and a lovely guide. Weather did not permit us to cruise out to Calanques so we were fortunate to tour the Bodin winery for tasting. I purchased a few delicious wines and brought one home to the US for a treat. Go see the churches of Marseille and drive along the Mediterainean Sea. The color is aqua sometimes.
