Does anyone know of a tour operator that would take us to Aix and then to tour Marseilles?

We have not been in Aix-en-Provence but we booked a private tour while we called Marseille on NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS in spring.We booked SSK for a tour of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille for November!
Here you find some impressions from our private tour and from the car/driver etc.:
I am sure if you ask them about the opening time they can tell you.

Can someone please help me with the e-mail address of SSK? I tried: [email protected]-- it came back "undeliverable."Go to http://www.ssk.fr/fr/contact and send from there.
I've been trying to find some sort of transfer service/guide from Monte Carlo to Aix or Avignon ( hopefully with stops on the way).
Thanks for prompt reply. I was on that site, but they seemed to need telephone # and things like that. I was hoping simply to be able to e-mail them, as I have other such companies. Is that not possible? If not, I wonder why.forms like that always look a little daunting, but they aren't going to be calling you internaionally, they will respond by email.
Is SSK Dreamliner the same as the "other" SSK mentioned above?Yes, it is. I used SSK Dreamliner because of HeinBloed's review.
Thanks, moyaroo and CruisingGoddess.
Thank you. I have e-mailed r.noel, but not heard back.It's always just the 2 of us when we travel also. We formed a group of 8 to fill our tour van on our Roll Call thread. We did this for 4 ports and it worked out really well. We met a couple during that cruise that we are still friends with today!
The problem for us will be that we're a party of two. I'm learning that transfers/tours for just two people in France are prohibitively expensive. Very disappointing because in England last month we had a terrific private transfer for just the two of us from Heathrow, and also a superb day mini-bus tour from a company in Bath to the Cotswolds-- very inexpensive and perfect for us.
We used SSK Dreamliner for 2 tours: Villefranche/Nice/Eze and Toulon/Marseille/Aix-en-Provence. You can read my full review and photos here:Thanks a lot for sharing, loved your review, you should post it on all port of calls
We were in contact with Romain Noel who has this e-mail address:
Hope that helps!
