The walk was great, we visited Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica. The bus makes several stops so you can visit and take it back whenever you want, once the ticket has been purchased it is valid until 5 p.m. you can take it at the time you want

The tour was in two parts, and we had enough time to go around and taste some local food in both cases! In Cassis, there was enough time for either a boat ride or train ride for 45mins. Our guide was also super interesting!

it was our first tour using this site, so we didn't know what to expect, but the guide was very nice, trip destinations were better than expected and it is a good way to get to know provance in a short period of time

Visit of the Basket very interesting, top activity and at our own pace. I recommend

A day full with charming places and with great food.
