Full description
On this 4-hour sightseeing excursion from Aix-en-Provence by air-conditioned minibus, you will drive along the coast to the little village of Cassis, a small fishing port nestled between the famous calanques (inlets) and majestic Cap Canaille. Stop for photos at Cap Canaille. Get a great introduction to everyday life in Provence and the Mediterranean away from the busy tourist resorts as you explore the Riviera town and admire the bluffs, cliffs and sheltered inlets (calanques) that have made the area so famous. Grab the chance to take a 45-minute boat trip (ticket not included) out to sea to sail to 3 of the calanques, where you will see up-close the limestone cliffs that rise and fall steeply into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Beautiful Day in Cassis

I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgable and helpful. She helped us secure a boat excursion to see the Calanques even though there were none scheduled until the afternoon. 4 hours was not enough time to explore as the boat ride takes up quite a bit of time but worth it!

Tours

When I went to Cassis in May 2014 it rained a lot, I will return now in June 2016, however I think the 4 hour tour is short. From Aix an provance it takes 45 minutes to reach the village and about 1 hour for the Calanques tour and then the guide is already looking to return to the starting point. Do you have longer time trips to Cassis?
