      Great experience - after scheduling hiccups
      Scheduled day before trip through GetYourGuide for a 9am 4-hour tour; Laurent was quick to tell me he was available at 1pm, which was a concern due to an early cruise departure of 5:30pm. Laurent arrived 30 minutes late and was able to adjust: only 1 winery (which was amazing — very organic, “real-life” tour with the 6th generation sole owner of a family winery — fresh apricots off the tree as a bonus!), and a drive through the national park as a make-up for not having time to do the planned 2nd winery. Plan ahead, nail down details, and Laurent is a great guide!

      Must Do Half-Day Bandol Wine Tour from Marseille; 5/5 Review
      My family of four (two parents and two female adult children) booked the Half-Day Bandol Wine Appellation Tour from Marseille for our short visit through France. Our tour guides, Gilles and Michel, were absolutely phenomenal! This tour included tasting 3-6 wines at two different wineries and exploring the neighboring areas of Le Castellet and Cassis, but they took it above and beyond! They were extremely knowledgeable of the wineries and history of the villages. The wineries were family owned, boasted fantastic white, rosé, and red wines and were breathtaking to look at. They took us down to the port town of Cassis to eat lunch from a delicious bakery where we enjoyed our food sitting near the beach. We then got to finish off the tour by visiting the Notre-Dame de la Garde, which is a must see as a Marseille tourist. Gilles and Michel were the most hospitable tour guides I have I ever had the pleasure of meeting. They gave us dinner recommendations as well as recommendations for the rest of our trip through Europe. I would 100% recommend this tour and our tour guides for anyone looking for a half day wine tour of great French wineries and must hit spots in Marseille.

      Disaster tour!
      The tour we took with my wife months ago was a complete disaster. The guide didn't know the way. Actually he didn't know anything! Unbelievable! He couldn't answer or ignored the questions when we asked. When I called to complain, I couldn't find anyone. Never again! I never recommend it to anyone

      Great wine tour
      Great tour with Laurent! Very good communication before the tour where he arranged a convenient pick up location for us. He ensured the tour was personalised to us and what we wanted from the day - which was to drink lots of wine! He even brought a cork screw and cups so we could drink our wine at the top of a beautiful view point. The vineyards we visited were lovely and we had a nice lunch stop as well.

      Food and Wine of Marseille
      Amazing tour with Sophia. Great group on the tour and interesting food and some very nice wines. The weather was perfect and everyone in great form after the rugby match the previous evening. We won 🙌🏼

      Marseille Tourist Office's Verdict: 'A Culinary Tour Guide Serving Food from a Thermos'
      When we complained to the Marseille Tourist Office, they said our guide was known as "a man who guides a culinary tour and serves food from a thermos." It seems others had similar experiences. There were a group of six French people, two German tourists, and two guide interns on the "3-hour walking food tour." I think one of the recent reviews might be from an intern pretending to be a tourist. The German girls are also upset about the poor quality of the tour and are in touch with us. 
We started by drinking fish soup from a thermos, accompanied by poutargue, in the middle of a gallery where we felt out of place.

 We couldn't get chickpea crepes because the place was closed, much to our guide's surprise. 
 Then, our guide wanted us to drink anise liqueur from a thermos in front of the Opera when another place was closed. 
In a desperate move, our guide led us to a dingy shop that sold cheese, fish, and meat together. The guide ordered one small cheese to share, plus whelks and chickpea chips that expired six months ago. We ate them because we were hungry.

 It was only later that we noticed the chips' expiration date. When we pointed this out to our guide, she said that such items don’t spoil. After looking around, I noticed that there were a lot of expired items being sold in this shop. It seems like it might even specialize in selling such things. We didn't finish the whelks, and the guide told to the shop owner that her son would pick them up later in the afternoon.
 After two hours, we realized it was a scam and confronted the guide. We even called her boss, but he didn't want to talk to us. The guide said there would be more to see and taste, so we followed, skeptical. And rightly so. Our "grand finale" consisted of one bottle of wine, two baguettes, two identical cheeses, and some tapenade jars arranged haphazardly on a random bench. Please refer to the attached photo of our pitiful picnic for eight.

 In conclusion, this experience was not only disappointing but also a clear case of being scammed.

      dommage mais pas vraiment de votre faute
      I attended a tour with a group of two Germans and six French people, as indicated on the site the tours can be done in several languages ​​so here we had French and German mixed since it was not a private tour. This really annoyed the French so there was a bad atmosphere from the start... We tasted tapenade, an anchoidade, wine, whelk, pastis, two cheeses, soup, poutargue, rouille which is already 9 dégustations. We visited the districts which hides the history of Marseille and its ships explained well by the guide , we also visited the Marché de Noaille, it is a place hidden from tourists which clearly shows the diversity in the history of Marseille. Unfortunately at 2/3 of the tour the French were unsatisfied because they didn't have enough to eat, and stopped the tour to attack the guide instead of leaving (as they kept saying) they couldve asked for a refund or an explanation from the boss after the tour. Because of this the end of the tour was rushed with only half an hour left because we lost 30 min arguing we were not able to visit the quartier du panier. Unfortunately this all happened because of unsatisfied customers, which I can understand but dont ruin the experience for others please.

      Must do tour in beautiful Marseille
      Marseille was our first port of call on our cruise. We chose to book a wine tour with provence amazing tours. The 6 of us had a great time. We visited 2 vineyards in the beautiful provence countryside, we were then taken for a drive up in the hills with some amazing views. Our driver Laurent was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained during our journey. He even gave us some tips for our next stop in Cannes

      Toulon, Bandol and Cassis tour
      We booked this tour based on all the positive reviews and Laurent did not disappoint. He was very accommodating as we changed our plans last minute. He showed us places only locals knew about. He provided a lot of historical information, insights and injected humor to keep the tour lively and fun. We enjoyed his company and would highly recommend his tour to anyone wanting to experience Cote D' Azur like a local.

      Fabulous tour
      Our group of 5 had an amazing day with Laurent. He picked us up from our cruise ship and took us to some excellent wineries. His knowledge of the local area is incredible and kept us entertained throughout the day. He even provided a mic for us to have a wee sing song in the car (Scottish & French classics!). His ears must have been bleeding with our terrible singing voices! He provided excellent translation so we got the most out of the wine tastings. Laurent took us on the scenic route back to Marseille port providing us with panoramic views and plenty of opportunities to take some stunning photos. I would love to take another tour with Laurent if and when we return to the area. Thanks so much!

      Interesting and fun exploration of Marseille
      My brother in law and I had a really fun tour with Laurent, who was v informative and genuinely cared about us learning about the fabulous city. Although not as much wine as we thought there would be.. we were provided with a great sample of food, snacks and drinks (much of which Laurent himself had prepared). Laurent even helped us to get to the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde, which he didn’t have to do (v kind). You should definitely do this trip to explore, discover new things and laugh a lot.

      Do Not Book with him
      Do not book! We were on a cruise. I Had a medical emergency, needed to leave my cruise and canceled our tour 30 hrs prior to arriving to marseille. No where in Laurent’s website does he list refund policy. He showed no compassion and refused to issue even a partial refund. And he is somewhat confused. Called me a month prior to my trip asking where we should meet the next day. Then questioned where and when I paid—and I needed to show him my receipt. I had to do his bookkeeping and he refuses to answer my emails now. Shady dude

      Great experience!
      Laurent was very friendly, knowledgable and flexible. He adapted to program to suit my family's abilities and interests. It was great and I would highly recommend the tours on offer by Laurent.

      Horrible experience with Provence Amazing Tours. We received an email canceling the tour, without reason, on the morning of the tour. We were notified just as we were about to walk off the ship. We had paid for this tour, for 8 people, in full, over 2 weeks prior.

      Perfect Day from Aix to Cassis
      What a wonderful day from start to finish! Laurent was so attentive and taught us so much from Aix all the way to Cassis. He made sure we had everything we needed so Charlotte (7 yr old daughter) could swim in the sea! Took us to a great restaurant in Cassis for lunch, gorgeous view and delicious food. He even squeezed in a wine tasting at a nearby winery and made sure our wine was properly packed for our trip home. It was a perfect day ! Thank you, Laurent :)

    Seeing the synagogues and learning about their history. It was fascinating to hear how the Pope helped out the Jewish community during a stressful time in history.
