A great way to find a little more information about the culture and history of Marseille. Our Greeter was Catherine was very nice and met us at a convenient location on the Cannebierre. Catherine showed us the old port, the pannier, the fort & Mucem and generally showed the areas worth visiting. We found the tour just long enough and... More

This was my first time using Private Greeters and it was a great experience! Ugo, was very flexible and accomodating. I thought we would spend only an hour or two walking around, but it ended up being 4 hours! We had lunch, saw many sights, went to the Arab market, and learned my way around Marseille. Knowing how to get... More

After filling in the online application form we waited for our turn for a "greeter" allocation. The whole process is easy to do and we loved the constant reminder that we were not forgotten about. On the day of our "greet", we were met timeously by Caroline in the pouring rain, down at the Old Harbour. It was wonderful to... More

We just finished the tour with Isabelle Louis and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's really a great way to see Marseille, through the eyes of a local. Isabelle was very knowledgeable and while she showed us the main attractions, she also brought us to off the tourist track areas which we appreciated very much. She introduced us to an artist...
