Full description

Explore the charming Cassis and its seaside port on this full-day guided tour. Enjoy a boat ride, awe-inspiring scenery, a visit to a local winery to taste Provence rosé, red, and white wines, and more.

Meet your guide in Aix-en-Provence to journey to the seaside port of Cassis. Discover this inviting portside village and the Calanques, listed by UNESCO as a world heritage national park.

Follow your guide on a walking tour of the village, stroll through the narrow streets of Cassis, and browse the small shops and stores that sell local Provence goods.

The tour continues with a panoramic boat ride to the Calanques, located near Cassis. From the small port, reach the Calanques National Park that stretches from Marseille to Cassis, and admire the beautiful coves of the steep rocky coast.

After the boat ride, enjoy some free time for exploring Cassis and have lunch (own expense).

No tour to Cassis is complete without a drive along the Route des Crêtes. As you leave Cassis, head up towards the highest sea cliff in Europe, Cap Canaille. Your guide will stop in one of the many areas for taking in the views over the village and the surrounding Mediterranean Sea.

After the drive to Cap Canaille, enjoy a wine tasting session in the Côtes de Provence – Sainte Victoire. This terroir is ideal for the production of elegant rosé wines and robust and generous red wines.

Take in the gorgeous view with the Montagne Sainte Victoire in the back and limestone plateaus, often planted with olive trees. Learn about the winery and its winemaking process. Depending on the winery visited, continue your tasting with reds or whites.

After the wine tasting session, you will be dropped off in the city center of Aix-en-Provence.

Amazing day in cassis from Aix with our tour guide and a fun crew of people we met on the tour. The drive to cassis and from Cassis went by so fast with our livelyconversations , the boat ride to the Calanques was breathtaking, )the boat driver did most talking in fresh but he let us Americans in on the highlights in English). Great walk through the town afterwards without tour guide leading the way and explaining some History. , lunch near the port and then the bonus of a wine tasting in our way back. Wear comfortable shoes!

We had a wonderful experience. Lucille was a terrific guide. Since she is a local, she knew just where to take us and she answered all our questions thoughtfully. This trip seems very reasonably priced for a full day and had just the right balance of experiences. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants a bit of everything in the Cassis area.

Had a great day out with our guide Thomas. He gave information on all little things of the area that made us appreciate the things we saw a lot more. Very passionate about the things he liked to talk about, with Thomas our day went by just like that. The boat tour was a bit boring, just sat there looking at places from a far. Also, could have spent a bit more time at the wine tasting, but no complaints.
