This tour was our favorite of all the ones we took this vacation. Ben was a fabulous guide, scoping out days in advance things he knew we were interested in seeing. Even though this was not billed as a “private” tour, it turned out to be private as only one other couple (friends traveling with us) booked besides us. Ben also took the route opposite all the big tour groups so we avoided all the crowds at each village. I highly recommend this tour for escaping the city and experiencing the beauty of Provence!

Our guide had a fairly good command of English and was certainly knowledgeable about the area and history. Our only disappointment was the way we were treated at Chez Gilbert in Cassis. Not kind to Americans and very rude to my daughter even though we spent 200 hundred Euro just at lunch.

Our day on the tour was fantastic. The tour guide was fluent in English and easy to understand. He was helpful and provided us with all the information we needed to enjoy the tour. The guide made the tour!

Had a wonderful tour with Gaelle. Friendly and very hospitable. She is very patient and give a lot of information, answering every question posted to her. Tour duration is just right. Very good time management and well thought of maps and itinerary given.

We took the Marseille and Cassis Calanques Tour and Best of Provence Day Trip. Gaëlle and Mat were great guides. The groups were small (8 or less) and the places visited were superb. We had enough free time to do what we wanted and enough guided time to understand the history and see the beauty of each place. The pick-up place in Marseille was easy to get to in the Old Port. They were the type of tours you could do again because there is always something new to see. I highly recommend Provence Tours!
