I did a guided tour of historic Aix in English with Frédéric, and it was simply amazing. He shows you so many fascinating things you would simply walk by without noticing. A truly enriching experience.

The tourist office is difficult to miss. It is located 300 av Giuseppe Verdi. It is just near the Rotonde fountain, the main spot of Aix-en-Provence, you will find it easily. See you soon, Frédéric
