Our stroll was truly a highlight of our stay in Europe. Christian was wonderful and provided many stories as we walked through Marseille. We highly recommend the experience.

We had a great walk with Catherine around the old market and into Le Panier district. We were shown places and told stories we would not otherwise have known, so even though it was our second holiday in Marseille we were introduced to more things. Catherine was very helpful in recommending restaurants, beaches, best routes by public transport. Do go... More

Norya Amezza, our Marseille Greeter, walked us through La Panier, the oldest district in Marseille. Start from email communication, receiving us at meeting point, to strolling around down town to La Panier, Norya made us feel welcome, the whole experience was like visiting an old friend. She told us history and stories of places, and even took initiative to suggest... More

Our walk with Marseille Provence Greeter, Nicole Blancard, Nikki to us, was the best it could possibly be! It far exceeded our expectations. Nikki is knowledgeable, personable and fun to be with. She taught and showed us more about Marseille than we knew existed. We had three generations and she related well to us (the grandparents), our children and grandchildren... More

We highly recommend this tour to people who, like us: (1) have only a few hours to spend in Marseille, (2) know only a few words and phrases in French, (3) visit this city for first time, (4) want a tour crafted to see the specific points of interest, (5) want to try local cuisine combined with a nice sea,...

You can take a boat tour, or a double-decker bus, or one of the Little Trains, but nothing will give you the REAL flavor of Marseille the way that the Marseille Greeters program does. We had done a similar thing in Paris and had a great experience there so our expectations were rather high based on that. And yet this... More

We had a wonderful insight into life in Marseille thanks to Caroline Boucly. Caroline took us on a most interesting walk through the Panier district, telling us all about the history of the area and pointing out numerous interesting shops and cafes along the way. It really helped to set the scene on our first day in the city and... More

Bertrand Laville managed to show us real insight into the historical as well as modern Marseille in a very inspring way during our short stroll through the Marseille center. It was amazing how much we were able to see within an hour. It made our whole stay much more rewarding. We recommend anyone visiting Marseille to do the same and... More

I'd like to express my sincere appreciation to my Greeter Mr. Ugo.Ilaneras for his enthusiasm, hospitality, and especially his long-time strolling with me (from 9 AM to 6 PM). He is a walking dictionary and encyclopedia to some extent. To my surprise, he is a business management counselor but knows so much about history and culture. Before we met on... More

What a great way to get an insider's view of Marseille. I didn't really specify what I wanted to see and just went with the flow. In three hours, Francois showed me around a couple areas of the inner city and it was really eye opening and interesting. I would recommend the greeter experience to anyone who wants to see... More
