    The company cancelled this trip less 14-hours before it was scheduled to leave. While the fine prints notes that they can cancel, the lack of courtesy and professionalism, due to the time frame, is unacceptable. Since I received such late notification, I was unable to schedule another tour. Sadly, I never got to visit Aix en Provence.

    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.
