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.

Not knowing Marseille well enough, I dared not venture there without a guide. I found the concept of electric bike and guided tour very pleasant and our guide very friendly, smiling and very patient to tell us all these anecdotes. I will recommend this activity around me by specifying nevertheless not to take children under 12/13 years, we circulate a few times on very busy arteries.
