WITH
Laurent | about the guide

The city of Marseille and the surrounding region are famous for their sunny climate, but also for their wine and stunning cliffs, known as the “calanques”. This tour offers you the opportunity to discover all three, as well as one of the most beautiful treasures in the south of France, the fishing port of Cassis. Surrounded by steep cliffs, this charming village is well worth the visit. Accompanied by your expert guide, you will wander through the narrow streets, admire a church fresco by the French resistance during World War II and, if you are interested, you can also go on a boat trip to get closer to the cliffs. After all that walking and visiting, it’s time to focus on wine. You’ll be driven to the local Clos St Magdeleine wine estate where your guide will explain all about the different grape varieties and how the wine is produced. Then it’s your turn! During the wine tasting, you will sample different local wines and learn more about the notes that make each appellation so distinctive. To end the tour, you’ll be taken to a panoramic spot with amazing views of the “calanques” to take a some final photos to remember the special day.

Marseille

languages :
Français/French, Anglais/English

A native of Lille, I spent over 20 years in Paris before deciding to settle in Marseille, attracted by the climate and the charm of the Mediterranean. During my years in the capital, I was an actor but also an oenologist and restaurant owner, developing my passion and my skills in several renowned institutions. Since my arrival on the French Riviera, I specialized in tourism by offering tours combining wine, gastronomy and history, especially from Marseille, Aix en Provence and Cassis. I love to share my knowledge with people, being outside and exploring sites full of culture and history. I also sometimes offer mini wine courses and cooking courses in order to teach curious visitors how to combine wine and food. During my private tours, discover the culinary delights of the South of France between tapas, pastries and olive oil, as well as the most scenic places from Cassis to Arles via Les Baux de Provence.
