Probably the most stunning hike in the Calanques. Or let's say the 2nd best, the best one continues to Cassis, but we'll make a circuit and return to Luminy.
Start with a short detour and a great view down on Morgiou. After that it's mostly single-track trail along the sea cliffs, not always easy to walk. We'll pass l'Anse des Enfers and a crocodile. Several steep climbs, but with fabulous views. One spot where you have to be sure on your feet. For another spot I'll take my harness and a rope along, just in case; it's actually easy, but might look a bit scary for one or the other.
Bring food and water for a rest at the Calanque de Devenson.
Return to Luminy by taking the route over the Col de la Candelle.
As groups are always slower than one or two persons, I think it'll be around 6 hours, which includes taking plenty of photos and a rest.

For those who prefer shorter walks, there's the option of coming along until the beginning of the first climb, at the Calanque de Saint-Jean de Dieu (great spot to linger around a bit), and then go back. Would be around 2½ hours. They also could add a stroll down to the Calanque de Sugiton, it's quite nice and would take another half hour.
