It started off with a super easy check in and transport to the garage. Then we got to see the amazing city of Marseille with a local guide who was incredible. We learned so much about this beautiful French city. Thankfully we had the ebike to go up to the church at the top of the city - it was a bit difficult but so worth it. Overall the tour was fantastic and I'd highly recommend it.

A complete and superb tour of the city, for a first discovery of Marseille! With a guide at the top, passionate about his job and who knows the history of the city well, all embellished with anecdotes. Things to do to combine sport, pleasure and discovery!

I highly recommend this excursion. The owner of the shop took us on a great tour; he has a great attitude and was very patient. My wife and kids loved it. It's a great way to see Marseille. Riding the Segway is easy, safe and fun.

Super passionate and professional guide, a real pleasure to discover Marseille with his explanations and especially his anecdotes. Thank you the artist I highly recommend Stephane
