Absolutely brilliant tour, not to be missed. Very interesting to hear about how Marseille, came to be a tourist destination. Practical and comfortable way to see Aix-en-Provence and Cassis. Decent amount of free time dedicated to exploring both towns on your own, with good suggestions of things to see.

It was a wonderful experience. We toured Aix-en-provence, parts of Marseille and the beautiful beach town of Cassis. Our guide, Emanuel, was excellent and very knowledgeable of just about everything. I strongly recommend the day trip and the guide.

Our tour guide Florence was amazing. She was extremely personable and informative. We squeezed in a lot of activity into a day.

The day trip to Aix-en-Provence and Cassis was very interesting and well organized! Thank you again for the great day!

A very pleasant tour. More time in Aix En Provence would be better.
