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

Norya, my greeter indeed made a difference on my short stay in Marseilles. We walked around the city for three hours, passing through city's important sights. Being a historian herself, she would be throwing some history of the places we came across. She advised me as well on my plans for my own sightseeing. The following night, as there was... More

Patrick was a wonderful gent who was extremely knowledgeable about Marseille. For an entire afternoon, he brought us around the Vieux Port area, showing us little alleys, museums around the corner, and explaining to us a little about the history behind Marseille. He even brought us around the market nearby, and showed us the choice places to buy things that... More

Our greeter Christian was a very kind and knowledgeable gentleman. He had to wait for us, because we had a flight delay and we were more than 1 hour late for our appointment. He gave us a general insight about Marseille and walked us through the old and historic part of the city. I would definitely like to have a... More

We booked our tour with Marseille Greeters after reading many great things about them on Trip Advisor. We were quickly e-mailed back by a man named UGO who said he was free to meet us and asked what is what we would like to do, how long for and were we happy to walk, a lot! We arranged to meet...

We found the walk to be very informative and interesting! We saw the notre dame which was truly spectacular and it was so good to learn about the history and culture of Marseille. I highly recommend Marseille greeters!

It was easy to request for a guided tour of Marseille with one of its greeters. All I had to do was send them an email with my preferred dates and areas of interest. Since I booked for a tour months in advance, the organisation regularly sent me an email saying that my request has been taken and that I... More
