We enjoyed our tour of Cassis from Aix-en-Provence very much. Thomas, was a careful driver who explained the sights to us, but most of the tour was actually on our own. We decided not to take the boat tour of the calanques (additional cost). Instead, we put together a picnic lunch at the various stalls in the lovely market and then we ate our lunch on the pier overlooking the harbour. Although the main road to Cape Cannaille was closed, Thomas took us up a back way and we got to see some incredible views of Cassis from up there. It was a fabulous last day of touring for us. Thank you. Our only complaint would be that the bus was pretty small and it was a bit crowded for eight people.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Diana! She was kind and so informative. She really showed us the highlights of Aix en Provence and Marseille. She knew so many facts about the history of the cities. She was easy to talk to and spoke perfect English. Her car was also big and comfortable. I would love to do a tour with her again! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

we had perfect weather and great expert taking us around. we have spoken to the guide and said a personalised app for each group with highlights of each drop off point would be a major improvement rather than just wandering sometimes aimlessly. thankyou.

The trip was amazing - wineries were excellent and the tour guide Eric was knowledgeable!

Perfect!! Julian is a wonderful, informative host.
