“Disappointing tour of Cassis”

Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

The little train costs 7 euros and is picked up from just outside the tourist office in the harbour. The train seats are hard and uncomfortable, you need to hang on for dear life as you are whisked around the town. Commentary is 90% French so you have little idea what you are looking at. The 45 minute tour is only actually 30 minutes as when you arrive near plage bleue the train stops for you walk around a car park as you don't have enough time to walk to the little church whilst the driver goes for a chat and a drink. You are then whisked back to the harbour front via back streets. Personally I would say the tour is if little value to the tourist but if you don't do it you will probably feel your missing something, your not!

Must do ride around Cassis to one of the Calanques - cute! It was a lovely ride around the streets and we got a perspective of Cassis and the surrounding area. It would have been improved if the recording explaining what we were seeing was a bit louder - hard to hear the French and the English versions.

runs every 45 minutes, takes you up to Port Miou. The town is confusing when you first arrive, so this is a good way to get a feel for the place tho a bit price at 7 Euros each person.
