I had a wonderful time on vacation in Marseille, and the electric bike tour was my favorite day. It was so much fun and exceeded expectations in every way. I would highly recommend.
This was such a fantastic tour and I really can’t say enough about it. Our guide was Manu, who was friendly and knowledgeable and helpful and respectful- a real gentleman and he just made the trip so delightful. I loved every minute of riding the bikes down the coast and swimming in the Sea in an area that felt like our own private beach! Take note that you will be biking a long way (he said total of 30 km RT) and through some traffic, and climbing rocks to get to the beach. But the e-bikes are practically miraculous- we biked to the top of the city’s highest mountain to see the basilica which while challenging was definitely doable on the ebikes. If you exercise, this trip should be no prob for you. I think this tour was a major highlight of the trip to marseille. Manu’s passion, professionalism, knowledge, and fun spirit makes him the perfect guide. I loved this tour!! Merci merci!!
My fiancée and I spend two and a half weeks travelling the south of France, northern Spain and Paris. This was easily the best tour of the seventeen days. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable and the scenery was incredible. The views of the city from the mountaintop Basilica were breathtaking, yet still paled in comparison to the views of the Mediterranean in the Calanques National Park. Everything was stunning. Although the roads were hilly the bikes were electric so it was a very relaxed day of sightseeing. If youre in Marseilles do yourself a favour and add this to your to do list. Its a tour of a lifetime one you will not soon forget!
This was the best tour we’ve ever taken! Our tour guide - Julien was fantastic! We had so much fun and our tour was beautiful! Our lunch was also fabulous! We highly recommend taking this tour with Julien!
This was our favorite part of our 2 week trip in Europe. Leo was a fantastic guide. There were 8 of us on a cruise together so we were able to go as our own group. Our kids are 14 and 15 and pretty comfortable on bikes so it was no problem for them. You will be biking part of the time on crowded streets so I might have been nervous if the kids were a lot younger. This was all of our first time riding an ebike and we are hooked. You can bike using your own muscle power or switch over to the electric power whenever you need it you will need it for some of hills!. Great blend of seeing city sites and the Calanques National Park. Leo asked us in advance whether we wanted to get lunch for picnic or stop at a restaurant. We choose the restaurant and it was really fantastic - beautiful scenery and excellent French seafood. I highly recommend this excursion.
Highly recommended. The view of the Calanques is definitely worth it. I forgot our guide's name but he was really nice and had lots of insight on the city. E-bike makes the ride fairly easy. When we got to the sea, the guide allowed us to take a small break so we decided hike up one of the hills and have a beautiful view of the Mediterranean I would personally recommend taking that small hike. He was patient with us. One thing to have in mind is that there are little to no bike lanes in Marseille, but that is out of the control of the tour. The drivers were good with sharing the road. Again, a highly recommended tour if you're in Marseille.
Cecile was our guide. She was informative and gave a great tour to my husband and me. Yes it was just the two of us. This was a great orientation to the city, we had so much fun. Electric Bikes are really easy to learn and made the steep hills of Marseille doable.. It was amazing to get up close to the Mediterranean and see the Calanques.
Tours negligently/inattentively conducted. I got injured at tour, ending up with broken teeth, where tour guide/ebike boss offered no material help, with Marseilles riad users.called police ambulence for me. Result is that my front teeth found dead with root canal and fake teeth to follow. Dangerous
