The tour itself was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and very easy to listen to. We only have one complaint. We had booked a hotel which was near the original place of pickup. Unfortunately, construction was in full swing in that area and the pickup location was changed. There is no problem with that, we totally understood the reasoning. Our complaint was that when we checked into our room, we read our emails. There was one that just arrived that late that evening, changing the pickup location. We left the hotel in plenty of time, but could not find the new pickup spot. Thank goodness my husband had a feeling that a large van thT was parked up the road was our ride. There were no markings on the van, or signs stating this was the tour van. That would have been very much appreciated. Other than that very stressful start to our day, it was an excellent tour.
Superb day of visits in a friendly atmosphere with an extra guide who not only knows history very well but knows how to answer the most varied questions! The format of the activity is perfect (comfortable car, small group, walking balance and visit by car). I only had one day free and I feel like I have learned Provence very well! Thank you Alex for this beautiful day! Julie from Quebec
Aix en provence was beautiful ! After that we went go Cassis, this was magnificent! The view, the rest, the beach. We didn't make a boat trip, we swim in the sea and lay down in the sun on the beach. Natalie was our guide, she told us everything, shows a lot, it was very good! Even the time was not a problem, she scheduled very easy.
The tour was amazing. 3 great wineries (2 in Bandol and 1 in Cassis) and some very good wines. The tour guide (Eric) was fantastic - entertained us with stories and history along the way. The best was a trip to the top of the cliffs over Cassis far an incredible view of Cassis and the coast.
The tour was in two parts, and we had enough time to go around and taste some local food in both cases! In Cassis, there was enough time for either a boat ride or train ride for 45mins. Our guide was also super interesting!
