We had a great time with our guide in Marseille! She was knowledgable and eager to practice her English on us. She showed many places and things we would have never found on our own. Highly recommended!!!

I am sorry to give low rate for this attraction, but I am doing so because I registered to the greeting in their website, and I got no response before or during my stay. I got a response only at the day that I already left Marseilles. I can not judge the quality of the tours, as I eventually did... More

Dear Prigurt, We're very sorry about what happened, if your registration was late, you had less chance to have a Greet because our Greeters are volunteers and take on their free time to make this walk and with the end of year celebrations, we haven't been able to find a Greeters for each request received. And we have an automatic... More

We found this service online and arranged a walk with a "greeter". We were not familiar with the concept, but are now converts and will look for this in other cities on our travels!

I can't say enough about our tour of Marseille from Marseille Provence Greeters. Michelle corresponded with us by e mail asking for our preferences for a tour and making suggestions. She met us right on time at the prearranged spot and was extremely friendly, accommodative and knowledgeable. A great way to see the wonderful city of Marseille.

A few days before leaving on our trip to Provence, a neighbor recounted his good memories of Marseille Greeters from three years ago. With only a little over 24 hours in which to appreciate the city as first-time visitors, we thought that a stroll with a Greeter might be a good way to discover and learn some places and things...
