We will feel the cosy atmosphere of the charming Mediterranean Cassis. We will visit one of the most beautiful places in the world - the Calanques. They are deep and narrow gulfs with rocky shores and marvellous color of water. The Calanques are unique, they are located only in the Mediterranean Sea near Marseille. The Calanques is a natural wonder you should see!

PROGRAMME

  • We will arrive to Cassis by car. I will pick you up from a pre-arranged location in Marseille (your hotel, the railway, or a specific metro station)
  • Out tour will begin by exploring Cassis
  • Then, we will go to the Port Miou Calanque and begin our acquaintance with the wonderful Mediterranean nature. We will arrive to the magical Point Pin bay and swim its turquoise waters (if you wish). The water there is so clear that you will feel you are in an aquarium created by nature itself! Get ready to be thrilled by many colourful and unique landscapes
  • A bit tired, but happy and fulfilled, we will then drive back to Marseille.

I am quite certain that the Calanques will be one of the major discoveries during your traveling around Provence and the French Riviera!

Please note that the tour program can be modified according to your needs. My goal is to help you enjoy your trip to the maximum! Therefore, any tour itinerary can be tailored to your needs.

IMPORTANT DETAILS

  • Hats, hiking shoes (or at least sport ones) and sunscreen are mandatory
  • Drinking water (1 liter per person) is necessary. You can pack some snacks if you want
  • Be ready for at least 2 hours of walking

Tour reviews

Excellent!

Kate is just amazing! She opened up Provence for us and it exceed all my expectations! We were walking through tiny streets passing hidden places known just by locals, marine, castles, spectacular calanques, surrounded by pine trees, we tasted the best freshly baked croissants and lavender ice cream, fresh oysters and vine. Highly recommended!

Amazing trip.

I really enjoyed my trip to the Calanques and visiting Port miou and Port pin with Kateryna. She is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about the area, and also quite energetic and full of positive energy!

The views were incredible and we really enjoyed our day with Kateryna.

Thanks again!
