The weekly market will give you the opportunity to savor the regional produce, including fresh cheese and olive oil, as well as scented Marseille soap.

We drove to Provence and her guide told us the most and showed some of the important built. She gave us 3 hours to walk on her own .. Drove to Cassis a small beach town with its charming beach and built, beautiful !! We drove all the way up to a mountain and there we stopped at viw pont, fantastic. she is incredibly good in an English. Very nice and charming!

Really good especially the stages in Marseille and Aix which are argued by the guide with free time in Aix so really great because the guide makes us discover the essential. Because in one day if we are completely on our own, it's difficult to find out. Too bad that for Cassis, the system is not the same since the discovery is done alone. But overall a good experience despite having small children. So top !!

The trip itself was very nice, the guide was kind. But I must say that they called us at 9am. I arrived at 8.50 am early and the driver arrived until 9.32am. 40 minutes waiting for him on the street at a temperature of 4 degrees and it was not pleasant. Otherwise well
