This e-mountain bike tour is an excellent way to see the Calanques National Park and nearby villages. The bikes were in good order, and the route was great including a mix of beachside streets, walking paths and rocky, hilly hiking paths. I am a regular cyclist with familiarity with riding over rocks and sand but someone with little experience might find the handling a little daunting. You don't have to be in super shape -- the e-bikes work great getting you up the grades. Meeting location was easy to find, and easily accessible by Metro and bus from downtown Marseille. I felt like it was a good value. And we had fun going to the beach across the street to cool off afterward!
This e-Bike Tour is a great opportunity to discover the Calanques in a sporty but not too exhausting way - and even at 36 degree it was okay due to the wind while pedaling. Unfortunately there was an accident in our group before we could even get to the Clanaques and so the route was changed. Anyway, the guide improvised instead of cancelling the tour and we got to know some places around Marseille’s east. Simon was very nice and always tried to give us the best experience. I will definitely think about doing the full tour when back to Marseille one day. Small tip in the end: the place does not have any toilets and it is really difficult to find one during the tour.
Absolutely superb from start to finish. Amazing scenery, fantastic e-bike which helped on the steeper roads, and super friendly professional guide. A++ HIGHLY recommend Note of caution: you need to be in decent shape OR with a group of similar athletic ability. The eBike will be a huge help but it’s not like you are riding a motorcycle or some effort is required.
Absolutely recommend this tour. The guide was very nice and we saw so many beautiful places. The e-bikes were almost new and by a good brand (Cube). But consider: You bike off road uphills and (fast) down and therefore you may not be afraid of this fact. Thank you very much.
Great way to see Marseilles, and Anthony was an excellent guide! Highly recommended!
