We received a great walk around the City with Bertrand Lavalle. Our two hour tour extended to four hours. He was knowledgeable about the history of the city, as well as passionate about his city. We had never been to Marseille previously so learning about the ancient history as well as the recent history and upgrading of the area was... More

We spent our day in Marseilles in the company of Bernard, a native of Marseille. He showed us the essential attractions of the city and we also invited him to have lunch with us in a local restaurant. Of all of the tours we have taken over the past few years, visiting a city or town in the company of... More

Our greeter, Michelle, lead us on a wonderful walking tour of Marseilles. It was our first time in Marseilles and Michelle's enthusiasm and knowledge of her city gave us a wonderful introduction to this beautiful city. Michelle met us at the pre-arranged location at the old port. We took local transportation (the bus) up to Notre Dame de la Garde... More

Marseille Greeters gave us a great introduction to the city. "Greeter" Christian-Marie Regina was a gem. He met us as planned even though it might have been out of his way. He gave us a marvelous introduction to Marseille. As we wandered down to Vieux Port he gave us a really fine commentary about Marseille, it's history and culture. His... More

spent approximately 5 hours with greeter Danielle which we very much enjoyed seeing the old part of Marseille and having lunch at a great little restaurant which was super. To top it off our greeter took us for a bouillabaisse dinner in the evening with other greeters at a local spot. Would recommend a tour with a greeter when in... More

We took a private walking tour of the Panier district (Old Quarter) in Marseille. It was led by Christian-Marie of Marseille Provence Greeters. This was a free tour and any gratuities given go back to the company to pay for expenses. Tours are led by volunteers, and Christian-Marie was very pleasant and informative. He custom made our itinerary to fit... More

Catherine Thomas was spectacular. She had to wait for us over 30 minutes because our transfer from the ship to town took much longer than anticipated. We were so afraid she wouldn't wait but she did, lucky for us. We loved being with her. She was warm, friendly and knowledgable and very smart. I'd like her as a friend. I... More

First of all, we love the concept of this organization. Volunteers provide walking tours of their cities and donations help fund and promote the Greeter organization. Our guide, Christian was intelligent, knowledgable, funny, considerate, and spoke beautiful English. We had a wonderful walk around Le Panier, Major Cathedral, and Vieux Port. We learned about the history of Marseille and Christian... More
