This e-mountain bike tour is an excellent way to see the Calanques National Park and nearby villages. The bikes were in good order, and the route was great including a mix of beachside streets, walking paths and rocky, hilly hiking paths. I am a regular cyclist with familiarity with riding over rocks and sand but someone with little experience might find the handling a little daunting. You don't have to be in super shape -- the e-bikes work great getting you up the grades. Meeting location was easy to find, and easily accessible by Metro and bus from downtown Marseille. I felt like it was a good value. And we had fun going to the beach across the street to cool off afterward!
Everything worked well. The only thing we didn't know was that we had to visit the tourist information to get your pass, so it was a bit awkward trying to get on the metro using the bar-code on the printed voucher and we had to buy a single ticket (which was only 3 euros for us both). You have to present your card to the place of your visit and they issue the ticket to you. Buses are easy as all you do is to scan your card on boarding the buses and I presume that's all you need to do for the metro once you have the card.
Absolutely superb from start to finish. Amazing scenery, fantastic e-bike which helped on the steeper roads, and super friendly professional guide. A++ HIGHLY recommend Note of caution: you need to be in decent shape OR with a group of similar athletic ability. The eBike will be a huge help but it’s not like you are riding a motorcycle or some effort is required.
Loved the bike ride and the route to see some of Marseilles must see sights. The e-bike made the journey a lot easier and quicker to cover the multiple stops. I would have loved another few hours to explore the National Park and swim but overall had a great time with Pauline and Matt. Very friendly, accommodating and great guides!
It is worth bying the card, we used the subway several times, we went on a boat trip, we were in Mucem, we took a small train to Notre Dame.We went to the small shops and got some small gifts,and could taste products
