    The tour guide is local(Samuel). So he knows where to bring people to. He is kind and answers as much questions as you ask. He is open to comments and critics and flexible with modifying the plan based on what people in the group think. This tour because of its unique choice of locations and specifically the use of bike is my recommendation to whoever wants to wander in this region. Just ask the tourguide about biking rules. He might forget telling you.

Visited old NIce by bike on July 12th. It was a beautiful, smooth morning, no pressure. We were 6 accompanied by Samuel guide in the morning who really explained the history of Nice to us. I learned a lot in 3 hours and am delighted with the ride. We ended the morning with a tasting of Nice specialties on Place Garibaldi. I obviously recommend this ideal bike ride for everyone, even non-sporty ones, with the electric bike helping…. I also recommend the Bicicletta store which rents the bikes, the two vendors are very nice.

Must do if you are in Marseille. Magnificent landscapes, breathtaking view of the creeks and the panorama at the top. It was wonderful especially with the guide who took his time explaining the efforts on the climbs and how to switch modes and speeds on the mountain bike. Climbing becomes a breeze with Turbo mode lol.

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!
