Very Beautiful Tour
Oct 2017 • Friends
We greatly enjoyed our sightseeing tour. It was a small group (4 people) and our guide was great. The free time in Cassis was also lovely. Try the local cake! I will note that the sightseeing of Marseille was just of two famous churches and the boat tour was all in French so we didn't understand it, but we were still overall very pleased with the tour. Would recommend!

Dear Stephanie G, Thank you for your rating. We are glad to hear you had a great experience. Unfortunately, we are not in charge of the boat tour so we cannot guarantee the tour is in the correct language. However we are taking your comment into account and will improve our services in order to please our customers. We are hoping to see again in Provence, Kind Regards
