    This tour was everything advertised and more! We had a great time with our guide- the meet up spot was very easy to find. Shortly after we got situated with our bikes and headed out. The bikes were fairly easy to use, it just required some getting used to with the bike assist/ motorized element. He gave very clear indications of what gear to use, when to stop, when to enable the bike assist, etc. We rode through a few villages which were great sites themselves before stopping at the first calanque. Then we went through a very rugged natural area to get to the second calanque- Sormiou. We chose the harder option, which was indeed strenuous but totally worth the views along the way and at the end when we came to the look out. I did have a bit of a problem with my bike's chain it popped off a few times when changing gears, the first time was my fault but all in all it was a great morning.

    It was so much fun and the e-bikes were so helpful with the hilly part of tour. Unfortunately the national park was closed the day we went. Our tour guide Nicholas was great

    Trip was thrilling. It was our first experience on electric assisted bikes but they were a blast! Clement was very professional, accommodating and patient. He took good care of us and quickly addressed minor issues with the bikes. Definitely a highlight of our trip and totally worth the rate.
