There are some places you can’t help falling in love with at first sight and Cassis is one of them!

Your morning excursion to Cassis begins in Aix-en-Provence where you meet your friendly tour guide. Set off for for an unforgettable visit and take in the panoramic view from the Cape Canaille, the highest maritime cliff in Europe (photo stop) as you go.

Arriving in Cassis, walk around the old fishing port, with all its colourful boats. If you join the tour on a Wednesday or a Friday, you can also enjoy the local market.

You will have the possibility to embark on a 1 hour cruise from Cassis to discover the calanques, limestone cliffs which dive into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean sea and create natural coves (fat, rocky claws that resemble Norwegian fjords and poke out into the sea) (the cruise ticket is not included).

You will finish the tour of Cassis with a drive back to Aix-en-Provence, arriving at 1.00pm.

Please note: We cannot be held responsible if the Calanques cruise is cancelled due to bad weather or if the Crest road and the access to Cap Canaille are closed (no refund can be claimed).
