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.

Great value for the price! Our group was so fun. Only thing I was was that there was fresh water or a snack that came with it as the sun and swimming is tiring. Other than that the staff was incrediebly kind and patient. Would recommend to all!! Thanks Team!

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

Captain and the crew are very friendly and the dinner was good.
