Fantastic experience! We had a smaller group led by our wonderful guide Pierre. The tour was super fun, Pierre was engaging, friendly and very enthusiastic with telling us about Marseille’s history and landmarks whenever we stopped to look at things. The cycling wasn’t really challenging at all! There are some steep uphills but you barely feel it with the bicycle’s assisted pedalling. Marseille has dedicated bicycle paths, but take note you’ll be cycling quite close to traffic sometimes. We saw parts of Marseille that we never would have on our own if we hadn’t booked this tour, easily the best part of our trip. Absolutely recommend booking this for anyone visiting Marseille, beautiful city!

If you want to get to know Marseille, you have to book this tour. A tour along the coast with sightings and relevant information about the sights by the warm and competent guide Claire. Bikes were easy to ride and Claire accommodated all requests for lunch and route choices. Thank you very much for the harmonious day.

I loved it, it really is a challenge, I know how to ride a bike, but I have a lot of experience, despite the fact that the electric bike helps a lot, if you have to take into account the roads and the slopes both going up and down, I recommend it as a challenge staff and let your eyes marvel at the city of Marseille
