Vincent gave us a wonderful...
, Jun 2018
Vincent gave us a wonderful experience!! He went to a lot of trouble to make the experience something we will never forget! He went out of his way to pick us up at the old harbour that was close to our hotel - thanks a million Vincent! Driving over the clear water on our way to the snorkelling spot was awesome. The snorkelling fantastic...but most of all Vincent's attentiveness and care of us all was one that speaks of someone who really cares about people. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely snorkel with Vincent again.

We were so lucky to have found Vincent and this private tour. It was a little tricky to find the place because the car navigation doesn't understand one-way streets but once we did it was amazing. Vincent and his team were immediately warm and welcoming and got us set up with wetsuits and snorkel gear in no time. He explained everything and we left the harbour in Marseille to set out for the special spot. It did not disappoint! After a brief and very interesting tour of the islands and the harbour we proceeded to an amazing spot with crystal clear blue water to snorkel. The water was gorgeous and clear and we saw beautiful fish, an octopus, sea cucumbers, anemones and urchins! A spectacular spot made only better by Vincent who was so warm and friendly. We were not rushed, the water was amazing and the sights even better. He was a fantastic guide and if you're looking for a great family-friendly, one-of-a-kind activity on the Mediterranean you cannot go wrong. I would not hesitate to recommend Vincent and this tour to anyone. You must go! Merci beaucoup Vincent, we had a truly memorable adventure!
