Exact pick up time will be sent to you a least 3 days before tour. Please wait down your ship your guide will meet you there. At the end, you will have choice to stay and spend time in the city then take a free shuttle back to ship or take our free shuttle van that will go back to the ship later in the afternoon (return time will be given at the end of the tour).
When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, meet your guide at the cruise terminal. Then, transfer to the Marseille port and hop onto your electric bicycle to begin your cycling tour.

Spin through the city streets and take in top attractions including the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, the old port, and the Palais du Pharo—built in 1858 by Napoleon III. Explore the Vallon des Auffes—a traditional port outside the city—and listen as your guide sheds light on Marseille’s rich history.

Cycle along the Corniche Kennedy—widely considered among the most beautiful roads in Marseille—and stop along the way for panoramic coastal views. With your electric bike to help with the hills, you need much less peddle power to get around.

Visit the Notre Dame de la Garde basilica and gaze out over the rooftops of Marseille from your vantage point on the high hillside. Then, delve into diverse neighborhoods including the historic Panier district and the newer Joliette district—once an industrial hub.

When your cycling tour comes to an end, drop your bike off and return to the cruise terminal to conclude your ride.

Amazing Day! Highly recommend
, Oct 2021
Wow! What a great day! We were picked up at our cruise ship right at the exit. Very easy! Drove to the bike pickup where we started our tour with Stephan. The bikes were easy to learn and so much fun. Stephan spoke perfect English and was very entertaining. Highly recommend FADA tours and Stephan our tour guide. Would not hesitate to book again! Thank you for an amazing day!
Outstanding day on bikes
, Oct 2021
We were met at our cruise ship by a cheery fellow eager for us to have a good time. The ride was as promised and we saw so many sights not readily available to a casual walking tour. The bikes were in good condition. The guide, Stephan was delightful. It was exciting, pleasant, just active enough, and the e-bike made it easy to visit sites on the hills, and navigate narrow winding streets. Biking is not particularly easy, but the community gives way and with care the ride is worth the effort.
Fantastic tour and amazing tour guide

This tour was amazing. If you can ride a bike you will love it. Learn about Marseille from a beautiful local. You get to see the whole city and learn about the history of this spectacular port. Highly recommended.

Great day in Marseille!
, Nov 2019
Despite a little confusion as to the pick up point at the cruise dock, we managed to meet our guide for the day, Valentino. After getting to our starting point, having a safety review and a quick lesson in operating the bikes we were off. Valentino took us to some amazing locations where he gave us local histories and time to view the surroundings and take photos. One stop was at Vallon des Auffes, a great little fishing port. We stopped for lunch at a very nice seaside café prior to the climb to the Notre Dame de la Garde basilica where we watched military helicopters do training over the port. Valentino is a fantastic guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Marseille, Very friendly, patient, kind, with some great stories. Thank you Valentino for a great day.
Awesome electric bike tour for sure!

Don't be afraid, just do it! Super nice family owned company with great guides. This was our first electric bike use and tour ever and it was awesome! We were on a cruise ship, I booked it thru Viator and they met us at our port and brought us to the bikes, gave us instructions, helmets and our small group of 8 followed our guide all over it was awesome!
Very fun
, Oct 2019
Bikes were easy to use, and guide took us around various parts of the city. Only 4 of us on the tour, so it was pretty much private and customized.

Our best tour !!!

Our guide, Ezekiel, was fantastic. The intro to riding an e-bike was quick, and we headed off on a citywide 15 mile bike ride. Wow- the bikes were great for the hills, we saw wonderful beautiful sites, and had a great tour. Ezekiel was a fantastic guide. I recommend this tour for everyone who wants a different touring experience. Thanks Ezekiel !!!

Thank you Debbie :) We are so pleased to hear you had such a nice time on tour with Valentino. Touring Marseille by electric bike is definitely the best way to explore our beautiful french city. Take care!
Fun way to see the city.
, Sep 2019
Being on these electric bikes enabled us to see a large portion of the city in a small amount of time. The bikes were easy to ride and the guide was both informative and fun. With only one day to see the city I can't imagine a better way to do it.
