    Our ship was Princess. We have a little girl. So we decided to make a comfortable tour of Marseille day for both us and our daughter.
    Last year we did some research on the internet before the tour. We did not like the idea of making tours on the crowded buses organized by the ship. So we found this company. We contacted the company and decided to make the most suitable tour for us. Laurent, the company representative, answered our most stupid questions without getting tired. (Thank you so much Laurent!)

    On the day of Marseille we met our guide Roman who was waiting for us at the port. (By the way, we didn’t leave the ship on time because it was crowded. We were 25 minutes late for the meeting time. Despite this, Roman was very cheerful and polite.)

    I think the most important part of the tour is the tour guide. If your guide is good, you will enjoy the tour. If your guide is bad, the tour can easily turn into a nightmare. We were lucky because we had a wonderful tour thanks to Roman. First, his English is awesome, you hardly understand that he is French. Secondly, incredibly experienced and professional. We were amazed at his knowledge. Thanks to him we learned a lot about French culture and daily French life. Thank you for this gorgeous tour. We’ll recommend you to all our friends.

    Great tour from Marseille. The ride is just 20 minutes in a van. Our guide Mary was great and had a perfect English. Aix en Provence is a lovely town. Just as we imagine France.

    I booked this tour from Provence Private Tour. Laurent was so helpful about our questions. We were a family of 4 (My wife, me, our son and his girlfriend)
    We arrived in Marseille on Oasis of the Seas. Our guide Marie was waiting for us on the pier with a minivan. Aix En Provence was beautiful. After our tour while my wife and son’s girlfriend was shopping, we had our coffee at the historic Garcon cafe.
    Marie is an excellent guide, she was able to accommodate everyone’s needs. She explained all the details about Provence. When the tour was over, we drove back to Marseille and on the way back we had champagne.
    It was a wonderful day. Highly recommend this tour!

    We were docked in Toulon on the Celebrity Equinox and our ship won’t provide a full to Aix en Provence. It was great to have a private tour cheaper than cruise tours. Our guide Roman was so kind and informative. Thanks to him we went inside the Caumont Hotel (a must!). We had a great day ????

    My wife,I and our two children had a great tour. Pascale was a very knowledgeable guide and she was speaking perfect English. We were very pleased with our first tour to Aix. That’s why we already booked other tour for next year. We will have our second tour to Avignon in May 2020. Highly recommend.
