Had a wonderful bike ride around the major sites of the city seeing major buildings, restaurants, beaches, artistic quarters of the city. Through the knowledge of Marine (our guide) we learnt about the cosmopolitan nature of a city that we had previously underestimated.

The electric bikes were great as we easily cycled up to the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde and enjoyed the great views.

Tour lasted more than 3 hours as the lovely Marine generously offered to escort us to the Olympique Marseille shop so we could buy some football merchandise.

Had a great time on this 2.5 hr bike tour. Was picked up from the cruise ship by Marie who took us to the lock up in Marseille where the bikes are kept. We were shown how to use the bikes and then off we went. Stopped at several places of interest and Marie was very good at explaining the history of the city. Cycling in the city can be a bit of a hair raising experience and it would certainly be worth havng an extra guide in the future ( one at the front of the tour and one at the back .) Just from a safety perspective. Full marks to Marie though who was very patient and dealt professionally with the varying levels of cycling ability on the tour.

Hello thanks for your feedback. Our groups are small, not more than 8, rarely 10, so this is a good size to move in the city with one guide. In order to keep lowest prices possible, we only buse 1 guide per small group.

Our tour guide, Mary I believe, was terrific. It is hillier than anticipated and the e-bikes were great, beautiful & interesting tour. Unfortunately, my husband’s bike sporadically did not work and he fatigued on the steepest climb to the church- plus the bike felt as if the brakes were on? After he traded bikes, the next one got a flat! But, it was quickly fixed and we resumed our tour. It was great that they picked us up from the cruise port, but they did not drive us back. The other couple on the tour decided to leave & explore on their own, that’s when we learned you only get a ride if everyone goes back to the port! Not terrible, but be ready to walk or try to catch a taxi- taxis are not always available.

Hello thank you for your feedback. Sorry for the bike and flat tire, during week-end, there's a lot of broken glass on the road, and sometimes... About drop off, we have given to you 3 options : 1-Meeting for drop off at 4pm, great opportunity to spend more time in the city then meet at bike park to take our van. 2-Take the free shuttle offered by port authorities : we have given to you the directions to take this shuttle that operate all day long each 20 minutes. 3-take a taxi on your own. So we have given to you 2 options to be back safely for free at your ship, so i think it is wrong to write "they did not drive us back".

Manu was our guide and owner. He said we were the first cruise ship clients he has had since 2019. He had a great personality and did an excellent job. E bikes are an awesome way of seeing the city. The pedal up to Norte-Dame de Garde was e great workout.

In a sense, the title captures it all. To be more specific, we were so happy to be with Joseph, who is a wonderful tour guide. He is both highly informative and extremely personable. Our tour was at the end of last May, so I'm a bit late in writing this review. But my partner and I were so well treated that writing this review was something that I kept nagging myself to do. We truly had that much of a wonderful experience, and the price paid was well worth the experience! DO NOT HESITATE to sign up with this company for an e-bike tour! Thank you Joseph!

Julien is a top star guide and with his great command of English and quick wit and humour this was an excellent trip. He went out his way above and beyond my expectations to ensure that everyone in our group had a great time. As well as exploring the old town, the old port, the beaches and the coast we also did the workout climb to the top of Notre Dame which was amazing for the views and the freewheeling on the way down. The electric bike is great to give you that extra bit of help. There were plenty of rest and photo stops along the way of this fantastic port city. Julien picked us up and dropped us off at the cruise ship terminal. I would highly recommend this trip from around age 3 upwards.

So we started out a little bit rocky......the usual transport to the bike location from the ship was not available so the owner arranged to have us picked up by cab. We ended up at their second location who were not ready for us. All was well though......our bikes were delivered to us promptly and personally at this location and so began the tour. Julien was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. The bikes were easy for us to ride (we are all in our 60’s). We saw some great sites. Fantastic way to view city highlights.

Not having ridden a bike since my daughter was an infant meant this half day tour was going to be an interesting experience.

Our tour guide Valentine picked us up from the cruise terminal (when he found the correct exit) and drove us through the docks to their lockup on the edge of town. Being at the end of the season we were his only clients for the morning.

Valentine spoke English perfectly and gave us a thorough safety talk before we had our first go on an electric bike. Valentine continued to keep a safety eye on us throughout the trip. Using the bike was straightforward, and not at all challenging (until the final hills).

The tour took us around the edge of the city and to various secreted beaches as well as through various old parts of the town to an old palace. Valentine described much of the city’s history enthusiastically at the numerous stops. There was a stop for coffee/lunch (not included) at a lovely cafe before the ascent to Notre Dame. The electric bike helped but still involved some exertion, which was well worth it for the 360 views of the city.

Afterwards you could stop in town and make our own way back using the local port shuttle, or be returned to the ship.

After 20 years you may expect a 20km cycle ride to take its toll, but neither of us have any ill effects the day after.

A great experience with a great guide which was different and well worth it.

Highly recommended

The stops are unique to a tour of this area. The mirrored ceiling down by the shopping market area (similar to Chicago's Bean) was cool, as was the stop by the little Fisherman Village feel High rent district. These are in the center, but not on public tour stops. Take a try.

We were a large group on a 7 night Royal Caribbean cruise with a stop in Marseille. We booked the Marseille ebike shore excursion for 8 to give us something fun to do and later added 4 more to our group (ages 19 - 68). In all honesty, this really was too many, but we were given 2 tour guides to accompany us which helped tremendously since everyone in the group was not at the same experience level in navigating the ebike. Still, this tour was such fun! The bikes were easy to use and made the ride much much easier. Sometimes during the ride, you will need to ride along very busy and narrow streets with lots of cars, so you need to be comfortable doing this for this tour. The ride to the top of the hill to visit Norte Dame is challenging, but you can do with the ebike although some in our group ended up walking the bikes near the very top. As an FYI, I rode the ebike all the way to the top and back down and I’m a 63 year old!! And coming down from the top was a little scary at times but still was such a blast!!!

We did have an issue at the start, as we couldn’t find our driver who was supposed to be at the cruise terminal to pick us up. We ended up walking all around outside of the terminal looking for him. This was a bit concerning and we had up to call the company to pick us up. My recommendation for the company is to make it clear that customers should remain inside of the terminal for pick up and to have drivers inside of the terminal early with a sign. This was not the case for us.

Other than this snag, this was still the most fun we had during our cruise and I would highly recommend this shore excursion if you have a stop in Marseille and are looking for something fun and different to do while on your cruise.
