What people are saying about Provence

A great experience! Our guide was so friendly and made sure everyone was ok throughout the trip. They also rented out water shoes for those of us who didn’t bring appropriate footwear. We kayaked over waves which was so much fun and we had the most beautiful views of the cliffs, train tracks and Marseilles. Would definitely recommend this company!

It's hard work, but really fun and interesting. Our guide was very accommodating and helpful, and had a wealth of information to share. Things not mentioned in the description : you will enter the water with your shoes. If you're not comfortable doing that with your own shoes, you can rent a pair of water shoes onsite for a small fee.

Remember your sunscreen. This was an excellent activity, hosted by a very proficient instructor. Very pleasant, fun, and a light arm-workout too. Thanks.

Paddling along this coast was a wonderful experience. The break in the bay and time to jump in the water, just wonderful.

Super nice people, super helpful. Very much enjoyed adventure.
