During the entire trip in Marseille you will do mainly walking tours and hiking, the best slow ways to see, understand and respect a place. The protection of the flora and fauna is very important for us as it is one the main beauty of France.

At our office we also try to be as eco-friendly as possible, we minimize the use of paper by using internet, emails and for marketing purposes we also make use of websites. Our vouchers are electronic to avoid massive use of paper. When we have to use paper, we use the APUR paper, and our Brother’s cartridges are brought to the recycle center, which has a partnership with CoolEarth.

As an information, for a number of years, the city of Marseille has implemented an ambitious and avant-garde policy for sustainable water management. As a result, the city's water is considered to be "the best water in France". Since 1996.
