    Marseille to Roman villages and Nîmes Private Shore Excursion
    What could be more enjoyable and wonderful than visiting the historical sites of Arles and Nîmes with a professional; Pickup in time from the port, welcoming, funny and respectful guide that didn’t hesitate any second to talk about every single monument in details. Tour strongly recommended for everyone passionate by history and nature.

    Private group tour shore excursion- port of call Marseille, France
    Djilani was a wonderful host. He met up with us after some initial confusion regarding pickup details. He catered to our 8 person group adjusting for the July heat wave. I suggest a camera and good walking shoes--(Must have) Be advised that many of the sites in Avignon are not easy for a mobility impaired guest. The Papal city did not require covering of shoulders/knees--but some cathedrals in certain cities do require these rules. We enjoyed meeting Phillipe at the winery-he was a gracious and knowledgeable sommelier!! Djilani is kind/funny/gracious in every way. He made sure we saw Marseille from the cathedral/highest point of the city!

    Marseille to Aix-en-Provence & Cassis
    We had a wonderful day with Djilani! He was flexible when we decided not to go to Avignon and suggested Cassis instead. He gave great suggestions for places to eat & took us to scenic points for pictures. He made sure we stopped quickly at the cathedral even though it was right before we need to be back on the boat. Highly suggest this tour & guide!

    Poor time management
    We were excited for this tour with the hopes see Marseille and its sights. Due to other customers being over 1/2 hour late we lost majority of time that was set aside for downtown and shopping. What was supposed to be a hour turned into less than 30 mins. With the high cost of this trip I am disappointed that tour did not make accommodations to extend. I am hoping that Trip Advisor will stand behind their product and make financial reparations.

    Train from MRS airport through Orange to Lyon
    There is a free “navette/bus” to either the regional train station at Vitrolles or the TGV station for Aix en Provence. One can travel to Orange easy enough by train from the airport. Take the regional TER...one going to Lyon ... for a direct ride with no changes. Cost should be less than €30.

    Don’t miss this tour. It was a great historical tour and overview of modern day France. Our guide provided candid and insightful answers to all our questions. We were picked up at our cruise ship and taken to places that would have been challenging by bus. He is a great person and is a credit to his country. We took this tour around Thanksgiving 2018 and I finally found his business card to write a review. It was important to us to make sure we recognized him for his wonderful service.
