Early in the morning, the captain announced that due to sea conditions we couldn't tender into port but would visit Marseille the next day instead.

Alex, our guide walked us through the wonderful town of Aix and explained lots of history about this quaint French town. Then he drove us to Cassis for... More

We arranged a day tour from our cruise ship in Toulon to Cassis and Bandol for wine tasting at two wineries in the area. The tour was for just our six family members and everyone said that our tour in Provence was the best tour of the entire cruise. Our tour guide/driver, William, was outstanding. He met us right at...

The Celebrity Cruise line arranged for this four hour tour of Marseilles and surrounding area....Our tour guide spoke excellent English and her knowledge of the area was very good....My wife and I were impressed with the tour bus as we've had some less than satisfactory experiences with some tour buses...

Cant remember the name of our guide, but he was awesome and he made our day. We visited the Notra dame, Aix en provence, local tours round the streets, rich history. We also went to see the old port in marseille, visit to Cassis was a treat.

My small group of 16 people greatly enjoyed a tour with Fabrice and Emma. They are very professional and personable tour guides. Their knowledge and passion for Provence, where they also live, made our day so enjoyable. We were picked up at the cruise terminal in Toulon on time and enjoyed a relaxing drive in their two new mini-vans. We... More

We did two different tours with this company, and can really recommend them. Friendly sophisticated intelligent tour guides (Alex and Marc) able to convey the area information in good English. Both tours were well presented while never boring, while enough free time was allowed to explore some areas.

We met Marc on a somewhat dreary day in Avignon, this did not curb his enthusiasm, what an excelent host. We were lucky to be a party of 5. Marc was incrediably knowledgable, funny, great stuff. He totally looked after all our needs, was a great trip, very much because of ou driver!
