Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Delight in the charm of Aix-en-Provence with a leisurely 4-hour city tour. Your excursion begins with morning pickup from Marseille Vieux Port (Old Port), where you’ll meet your guide and board the air-conditioned coach for short ride north through the charming Provençal countryside. 

Disembark near Cours Mirabeau, Aix’s chic central thoroughfare lined with 17th- and 18th-century mansions. Snap memorable photos of the rich architecture and artistic accents as you make your way to Vieil Aix (Old Town). In this seductive and historic center, you’ll accompany your guide through the winding streets and explore charming boutiques, cafés and markets. Admire spectacular fountains such as the Four Dolphins Fountain and the Place d’Albertas fountain, and grand venues like Cardeurs Square,  Saint Sauveur Cathedral and Hôtel de Ville (City Hall).

Afterwards, enjoy some free time and perhaps visit the Atelier Paul Cézanne at Les Lauves (own expense), the final studio of Aix’s famous son. View the preserved space and attend an exclusive art workshop.   

Your 4-hour tour ends with a scenic ride back to the departure point in Marseille.

Misinformation
TTDerry
, Jun 2019
We were notified to meet at the Radisson Blu in Marseille @ 10:00am. Our ship docked and we rushed to get off to secure a taxi ride to the hotel to be on time for the tour. We arrived promptly @ 10:00am at a cost of $20 Euro. Upon arrival the guide was on the phone locating the balance of his tour group who happened to be at the ship dock. Rather than starting our tour on time we had to go back to the pier so he could pick up a group of 4. This ended up costing us another 75 minutes and of course we spent $20 Euro neeedlessly as we could have just waited at the pier. Very poor coordination.

A little disappointed in the delivery of the tour. We went to the designated pick up point and were met by a delightful guide, Gail. We were told that as they had a shortage of tour guides we were picking up some guests from a cruise ship that would join us. We had to wait for them to be picked up which caused a delay. Another group had their day completely rearranged. My wife wanted to see the Cezanne option but felt she could not voice her preference against the majority of the group who did not want to go, so she missed out. This option was on our booking confirmation as part of the tour. Very disappointed. We were told we were getting more time but this was only because we were delayed in starting the tour. Overall the tour was acceptable in that we spent time on market day Saturday in the centre of Provence - not the itinerary that was eagerly anticipated.

This is not a tour but simple tranfer. The driver took us to Aix en Provense, left us at the center, told us to come back to the same point after 2 hours and 30 minutes and took us back to Marseille. We could have done that by public bus at a very low cost. Go to train station in Marseille and take a bus to Aix en Provence.

Great pick up and great guide. It was an extremely comfortable ride there for 30m with stunning views. I must point out all you get is the guide driving you there with three hours of your own free time. I recommend visiting the area but there are other cheaper routes to do this.

Aix en Provence was beautiful and we really enjoyed ourselves. The Cours Mirabeau is quite peaceful and is perfect for a walk in the sunshine. This tour is more of a self-guided walking tour so bring good shoes and your camera. Our guide, Cédric, was a joy and helped make this a great afternoon. You will wish you had more time to spend in Aix en Provence!

We had a wonderful tour with our guide, Lea. There were just the two of us on this tour! Our guide accompanied us on a walking tour and then we had about 60-90 minutes to explore on our own. It was a good overview of Aix but you would definitely need more time to see everything. This met our expectations and more!

Marjelene (?) from Tour company is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The downside is Provence Tour was bought by another company and the phone number was disconnected. I suggest Viator should provide the uptodate phone number. I wasted two days trying to contact Provence Tour on the number indicated on the voucher.

The tour guide was informative, solicitous, personable, and charming. Only two people on the tour, so you know we lucked out and had a personal tour. What a treat.
