Loved the bike ride and the route to see some of Marseilles must see sights. The e-bike made the journey a lot easier and quicker to cover the multiple stops. I would have loved another few hours to explore the National Park and swim but overall had a great time with Pauline and Matt. Very friendly, accommodating and great guides!

Interesting but dangerous

In Marseille, traffic rules are not observed by anyone, and when you drive along the roadway it can be unpleasant. In addition, the streets are quite narrow, if you are overtaken by the dimensional transport, it is likely that you will end up in a ditch (or crash into a parked car). The reserve itself will be shown briefly, mainly you will see Marseille. In the reserve you need to walk along a rocky path, over a cliff. Bicycle brakes can work very weakly, there is no foot brake. Three times during the trip the guide tightened my brakes, but I still braked from the hill with my ears. Scary. In general, if the bikes are repaired and the route is a little safer, then I will recommend it.
