Calanques National Park is renowned for its beauty with a jagged shoreline and cliffs that plunge into the sea. The hiking trails that hug the coast lend themselves to impressive views, but the footpaths aren’t well marked. With this day trip from Luminy, you’ll walk with a local guide to discover a route suited to your group and the weather, with scenic views and swim stops, too.
  • Skip the hassle of public buses with included transport from Marseille
  • Discover the hiking trails that might be tricky to find as a tourist alone
  • Stop for a picnic lunch and admire sweeping views over the cliffs
  • Meet other hikers on a small-group experience, capped at 15 people

Could be better
, Jun 2022
The destination view is amazing. The experience could be more improved. The Tour guide speaks mostly in Spanish because majority of the group are Spanish and we couldn’t understand what the Guide is saying. Also a little bit of coordination and communication from the tour company, we were at the pick up point 15mins before departure a d there was not even a clear instruction on which exact place to go. Had to call the tour guide for instruction and gives us an instruction to go to a specific place as if we were local, say he will be there in 10 mins, he arrived about 10 past 9am.

Thank you for your comment Donna we'll inform guides to be more attention to all languages and try to translate simultaneously all conversations. We encourage this mixed group because is in our and to privilege this cultural exchange, I'm sorry you didn't appreciated it. the appointment is always in front of the post office. There's only one, we're going to add more references, thank you best regards

The only reason I went to Marseille was to mostly see the Calanques. I scheduled the tour Tuesday. The booking got cancelled very LATE in the evening of Monday. Next time, if you cant make a hiking tour due to the less number of bookings BETTER not make it. Dont allow solo traveler or a small group book waste their time booking and expecting for something they cant really do cos we travelled for these bookings. REMOVE IT FROM YOUR SYSTEM. HAVE A GOOD SYSTEM.

Hello Mishell, we are very sorry and understand your disappointment. I'll be the same, unluckily tours are not possible to take place under a mimimum amount of people unless you pay a private tour. I hope you understand logistic and guidance costs. Anyway as already proposed at that time you still have your free snorkeling activity whenever you want to come. Best regards
Don’t do it w a guide. Go on own.
, Jun 2022
You pay for ur own taxi to meet guide. You pay bus fare to get to forest. You then get Into the park for free and walk for free. So…what are u paying the guide for? We paid $309 for the seven of us. No lunch included (they offered tomatoes and cashews as the “picnic lunch”). So nothing was worth the $309. U can totally go without a guide.

Hello Angela, we're so sorry that your boat was delayed. Unlikely the departure address is not the cruise ship port. Next time you can book a pickup service to avoid these delays. With respect to the other tourists, the guide has to go on with the planning hopefully they were so gentle and waited for you for almost 2 hours. We understand the difficulty of traveling with 6 children. That's why we propose you the pickup solution with a special discount next time. Thank you for your advice that help us to improve each time, we already changed it to avoid confusion regarding picnic lunch to share snacks for picnic time. Is true it's difficult to satisfy everyone's likes. Best regards and hope the kids are going well.

The hike was challenging at times but worth the climb. The views were spectacular. Our tour guide Hameed was wonderful.
A wonderful experience
, May 2022
Very good experience with Hameed, he was kind and very caring. He showed me several good spots for pictures and we stopped by the beach to relax and chill. He also helped me during the hiking. The landscape is breathtaking, different colors of water and beautiful nature. It was the best activity of my trip !
Beware of trail difficulty
, May 2022
Trails chosen by guide were too difficult and dangerous in spight of safer options. Without a map or guide we had to return to trail head and return without guide and three other hikers.
Amazing Hike
, May 2022
My first visit to Marseille with my wife. What an amazing and breath taking views. Sai is an exceptional guide. He took us to viewpoint and was also suggesting places to take photos. He took us to a beach front with almost no crowd and also organized a picnic. He knows the trail well and was very organized, timely and knowledgeable.Overall, this was the best experience I had during my 4 day stay in Marseille.
Do not recommend

I booked the trip with my sister, we were really looking forward to seeing this national park. Unfortunately the tour guides never showed up nor did they contact us. Even still! Not professional and super inconsiderate.

Hello Hanna, We are very sorry for what happened. Indeed is my fault because that day was a national holiday and I forget to close up the excursion. We already proceed with the reimbursement and if you ever pass by you will have a tour equivalent for free (Kayaking, local craft beer tasting, wine tasting, snorkeling, among others)
Highly Recommend - Incredible Views
, Apr 2022
Even though the weather was less than ideal, our wonderful guide took us to see incredible views! He was very good at following our pace and making adjustments as we needed them. Would highly recommend this hike to others!

Had a great time hiking the trail to the sea and going there for a swim. Frederic was our tour guide and he made the trip amazing. He was very nice , knowledgeable and helpful when ever he could. Looking forward to joining him again in future trips.

Carlos est très sympa et a l'écoute de toutes les suggestions. Super randonnée. Et le moment où on pouvait se baigner était magnifique.
Randonnée annulée par l’organisateur et pas remboursé
, May 2022
La randonnée ayant été annulée 15mn avant le départ prévu par l’organisateur nous sommes toujours en attente d’une confirmation de remboursement malgré avoir écris à plusieurs reprise sur le site et directement au guide. Nous espérons vivement que Viator fera les démarches nécessaires dès que possible
Lugar incrível, praia...
, May 2022
Lugar incrível, praia maravilhosa! Guia mto simpático, educado, porém pedi o passeio em inglês e por sorte entendo um pouco de espanhol, pois ele não falava mto bem inglês... Mas de qq forma foi incrível!
Atemberaubende Wanderung!
, Apr 2022
Absolute Empfehlung! Die Tour lohnt sich in jeder Hinsicht. Der Guide Alejandro ist super nett und kommunikativ. Alejandro geht auf Wünsche bezüglich der Strecke ein und integriert die Teilnehmer in die Entscheidung welche Strände und Wege sie am liebsten sehen würden. Außerdem kennt er sich in der Umgebung wunderbar aus und bringt somit viel Wissen mit. Nach circa der Hälfte der Tour gab es ein von ihm arrangiertes Picknick mir typisch französischen Leckerein. Gegessen haben wir mir einer wunderschönen Aussicht und netten Gesellschaft. Die Tour können wir zu 100% weiterempfehlen und wir würden gerne auch noch eine der anderen Touren machen die er anbietet.
