Great experience to visit Calanques. The bikes were in good condition: it withstood road, gravel, and sandy paths going to the park. The guide, Cyrill, explained each path we were gonna take and recommended the e-bike mode to use in each section. There were ascents and descents alike, some were near cliffs so you have to take extra caution since there could be incoming cars as well. Cyrill gave us ample time to take photos and enjoy the scenery. We first were given time to trek through Monkey Bay, and we had free time (30 mins) to bathe in the creek too. It took us 3 and a half hours to finish the entire tour. Lucky me as I was able to join a group who rides bikes fast enough.

Great experience! The ride is fairly slow and the e-bikes help a lot so it’s not intense exercise - but is a great way to explore beautiful scenery and get to know the calanques. The host shared some good information and there were several points to stop and enjoy the view. The ride through the pine forest was wonderful as was the vista at the top of the calanque sormiou. Definitely one to try when in Marseille!

Cyril was my guide for this tour and it was by far the best bike tour I have done. He explained all of the views/sights perfectly and went at a good pace with many stops if you needed along the way. There were great spots for pictures as well. The e-bike was great because of the different modes so the biking wasn’t as hard as people think. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a very pleasant ride with Franc, our guide. He made sure he explained in details how the e-bike works. Beautiful sceneries on the way and the guide made sure he gave us a bit of history for each place.

Great tour! Stunning views and Cyril was a super guide Thank you
