The trip was perfect. Perfect weather , perfect place and most importantly the perfect guide Cindy. Would recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting Marseille and would like to see as much of the city as possible in a day. Also to anyone who enjoys a beautiful bike ride along the coastline with a erudite , friendly and very informative guide. Thanks Cindy for making the trip so enjoyable. The swim at the National Park was like the icing of the cake. Had the perfect day.

I lucked out the day of my tour and had perfect weather for our bike excursion. Our tour guide, Mary, was knowledgeable, fun and gave us a wonderful scenic tour of Marseille and the Calanques National Park. I also very much enjoyed the restaurant where we had the option to eat lunch (or we could pick up sandwiches to eat on the beach). Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to get out or Marseille and enjoy a relaxing day mostly by the water.

We did the tour together with four other people, and it couldn't have been more fun. The bikes were comfortable and easy to drive, the pace was perfect, and the electric bikes made the whole route effortless. Our guide had great tips and explained everything very well. The restaurant near the beach was excellent. We highly recommend this tour if you crave some activity and beach time.

The guide was amazing and very informative. Despite the very windy conditions it was a perfect day. Lots of information and helpful tips. The bikes were great and the heads-up when you switch gears made those steep hills easy to bike up.

I've thought about this review for a long time since our tour was back in February. Having been on multiple tours of this nature I feel comfortable giving a review of my experience. The tour itself was nothing special and actually a bit discombobulated. In the beginning, there was a lot of confusion and uncertainty as to what was going to happen due to two different tours taking place at the same time. After that was straightened out and we got underway. The tour guide was able and provided an adequate effort in providing information while also keeping us engaged. I did however feel he could have been more engaging and informative.

On a separate note, we had a misunderstanding that resulted in us having to take a taxi to the meeting place that cost us 20 euros from the cruise ship. After getting there we spoke with the owner Helene who assured us that they would reimburse us that cost due to the mix-up. Long story short, that didn't happen and we only received a partial refund.

Hi, thanks for your review. Our driver was on time and on the right place to pick you up from cruise terminal but you made the mistake to take a taxi and go directly in the city center meeting point. When you talked to Helen, she told you would get a refund that we kindly did. We refunded you the amount you payed for the both pick up and drop off (€14), and we explain you we could not pay the taxi bill (€20) because i was not our mistake. At the end, we also kindly drop you back to the ship for free. We exchanged so many emails and you never admit your responsability and now still complain 8 month after for €6.

Our bike leader, Cindi, was fabulous in every way--articulate, kind, generous and very attuned to her clients. And of course, safety was always on her mind. She was informed and helpful also. Was it her background training in engineering (brains), personality (positive DNA), or extensive experience in the healing arts? Who knows? But it enhanced the unbelievable beauty of the Calanques National Park, seaside awesomeness and fabulous fun.

This tour was a travel highight for us, we got to know Marseille on another level. Its personality shining throughout the tour by our amazing local tour guide Mary, who was very knowledgable of all things Marseille. The cathedral was steep but worth it, with deep connection to the sea and its people. The sandwhiches were VERY tasty. The bikes were good and enjoyable. The stoney beach calanques was a hidden pearl- didnt bring a towel but would have been nice, not necessary though. Lovely scenery. Rode through small intimate neighbourhoods. Traffic was there but our guide made sure we were safe. Highly recommend this tour. I dont usually do reviews, but i felt i must spread the word for this, so more can enjoy the beauty of Marseille.

I had a fun day on the electric bike tour. We got to ride along the beautiful coastline on very comfortable electric bikes. Our guides were very pleasant and competent and brought just the right amount of passion for Marseille with them. Only issue was not the fault oif the team but of the restaurant who were painfully slow and inattentive.

I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting a bit of exercise and a thuroughly enjoyable day.

My favorite part was making it to the beach. Our guide was terrific she knew a lot of stories and told them enthusiastically. I had never been on an ebike and I thought they were fully motorized, so this trip was more work than I anticipated (coming from a lazy participant).
I wish we had a little more time at the church because it was busy and I didn't think I would have enough time to enjoy it so I didn't go in. The ride was incredibly scenic and beautiful. It was an amazing experience and not for the weak of heart.
