What people are saying about 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.

We loved our trip to Cassis with Lucielle! She was incredibly knowledgable and showed us all the sights we wouldn’t of thought to go too. It was a fun day with a super fun group! Would recommend 10/10

Our guide was wonderful. We had free time to wander around and have lunch on our own. Guide was very knowledgeable.

My tour guide (Lucille) was AMAZING. I am already planning my trip to come back!
