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

Ugo was a wonderful guide around Marseille, he met me at the station and took me for a walk all around the old parts of the city, around the old port area, and later we took a bus up to the beautiful old church on the hill from which we had a magnificent view of the city. Along our walk,... More

Excellent! We had 2 greeters. They were both very nice and friendly. They had great local knowledge for non-touristic places and it was really nice to hear about Marseille from real locals. They gave a great history lesson on old Marseille, as well as plenty of current information. Really helpful on showing us where places were, how to get around... More

We had a wonderful time in Marseille thanks to Bertrand, who took us on a very interesting stroll through the Panier district. He mentioned to us all about the history of the area and pointed out numerous and interesting museums along the way. We would highly recommend Marseille Provence Greeters to anyone visiting Marseille. It really is a wonderful idea:... More

We recently went on a private tour with Bertrand. Great experience. He was very knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground (wow, does he have energy). Got a great insight into this beautiful port city. Will definitely check out Greeters in other cities before I visit in the future. Forget the expensive ship tours.

Our guide Pierre was fantastic. Walking with Pierre totally enhanced our experience of a charming city. I highly recommend strolling Le Panier district with a greeter. Marseille has beautiful buildings and great stores but its real charm lies in its people so you should take advantage of this amazing opportunity.

Four of us had a walking tour of Marseilles with Bertrand of Marseille Provence Greeters. The preliminaries were very well done. We requested a walking tour on a certain date and time. Marseille Provence Greeters emailed us with the name and email address of our guide, and all went exactly as scheduled. Bertrand was extremely knowledgeable and energetic (a former... More

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
