It was a great tour! I joined the tour with my son, we both had an excellent time! The tour was first in the city and went over the major city sites, then rode with the shore line to the Calanques, stopped there for lunch (not included) and went for a swim. Sindy, our guide was professional, well informed and charming, and we learned so much and got lots of tips for the remain of our trip. Very recommended!

Very well organized, with pick-up from the ship; only small group of 8 people; Very nice tour guide from Munich showed us a lot of "his" Marseille in a varied way. Bicycles weren't the most modern, but they ran like clockwork. The son (15 years) in particular was absolutely delighted with this excursion.

Cindy was a fun and incredible bike guide for this tour. We saw the most beautiful parts of Marseille and biked along the gorgeous coastline. She offered plenty of helpful advice for us on things to do during the rest of our weekend trip. Must do!

complete visit of Marseille with Swimming in the creeks. Our guide Lucie was lovely. Always a little story to tell. this day was really nice

Great way to see Marseilles, and Anthony was an excellent guide! Highly recommended!
