Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your morning or afternoon tour of France’s oldest city departs from Marseille Vieux Port. Meet your local guide and get acquainted with the deluxe electric bike. Fit with a small motor and optional baby seats and trailers, this modern ride allows you and your family to cover a lot of ground with ease.

First, cruise to the Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), the 18th-century coastal mansion that stands like a sentinel on the entry to the Old Port. Admire the bustling waterway before heading inland to view Notre-Dame de la Garde, a neo-Byzantine Catholic basilica that rises from Marseille’s highest point, and the Abbey of Saint-Victor.

Continue toward Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy) for a leisurely ride along the sun-kissed coastal boulevard. Along the way, pedal past scenes of French life such as locals playing pétanque—a favorite game of balls—and fishermen working in the village of Vallon des Auffes and the quaint cove Anse de Malmousque. Stop to snap great photos, get insider tips and learn fascinating anecdotes about Marseille’s long history from your savvy guide. You also have a chance to stop for some lunch or refreshments (own expense).

Upgrade your tour to include a trip through the ambient Le Panier neighborhood, the oldest quarter in Marseille. Coast through picturesque lanes and under terraced houses strung with clotheslines. Admire the striking façade of the Marseille Cathedral and the Museum of the Civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM), a strikingly modern accent on Marseille’s ancient waterfront.

Your leisurely electric bike tour concludes at its starting point in Vieux Port.

It was a great experience that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed! Our tour guide (Manu) was prompt and also very helpful along the way. He provided us with some useful historical facts as well as a few recommendations for places we could visit and restaurants we needed to try out. If you’re looking for a great way to get around Marseille, stopping off at great places to take pictures whilst also doing a little exercise at the same time, then I’d highly recommend this!

We all enjoyed this tour greatly and would highly recommend touring Marseille on bikes. The only disappointing thing is not enough pictures of every beautiful twist and turn view. Our guide Paul was excellent and we now love Marseille.

We did a bike tour in a few other places we have visited over the years, but this may be one of the best! I always think it is a great way to see any new city, especially when time is short. You are able to pack so much in and take both the small side streets and main roads along the way. To motorized bikes are quite zippy and made it easy to keep up and move easily up hills. We covered some great territories stopping frequently to take in main sites and some off-the-beaten-path spots only a local would know. We took in great views of the coast, the city center and harbor, and stopped at the big cathedral with wide sweeping views over the city too. All picture perfect spots. This makes me want to come back again. Our tour guide might have a different review. She got a flat tire which delayed us at the first stop while being fixed, but we had a great time meeting our group and taking photos of each other. It was time well spent and didn't bother any of us a bit! We also we got stuck by a delivery van in the parking lot of a 5 star resort with great coastal views...what a treat! She was great and we loved her perspective on the city. I highly recommend it!

Great guide! City .tour not for kids!

Hey all....we booked a couple of trips through Viator and thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd one. We would have truly enjoyed this one as well, if it was only my husband and I. The City is not prepar ed for Cyclists so is definitely not for kids or anyone who is intimidated by motorists. We had our 13 year old with us and he was scared the entire time. The city has steep hills and the motorists are unyielding. Unfortunately the site implies that this trip is ok for kids. Its really not. I do wish that it had as another electric bike tour is available to and through the national park. It likely would have been more appropriate for my son. Our guide was SUPER and very kind!
