We visited Marseilles as a port on our cruise and were undecided what to do. When I found Marseilles Greeters on TA I decided to give it a try even though it was only 10 days in advance. They responded very quickly and provided Nikki as a guide. We arrived very late as the boat shuttle from the ship left... More

Hello Penny, Thank you, we're really touch by your review. We're always happy to read that a stroll was great. Our city is indeed very old, the oldest one in France actually ;) but Nikki certainly said it to you. We hope you'll come back to see more of the city with us.

Our time with our guide from Marseille Provence Greeters was excellent. She was very accommodating for our group which was very diverse (from 12 to 86 with every age in between). We received a personalized tour and everyone in the group enjoyed it. Great information and diversity of what we saw.

Our guide was quite patient, considering we were 25 minutes late, because we got lost. Danielle filled our head with a love of Marseille, introducing us to the history and architecture of the port. Took a tour of Le Panier, museum overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and a small wonderful restaurant in a small alley. Highly recommend using city greeters for... More

We found this great organization through Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Definitely worth it! We met Catherine where our cruise ship shuttle dropped us off near Mucem and strolled all around the Vieux Port area including La Canebiere. We definitely felt like we got a sense of the local "real" Marseille as saw the fish market, open... More

This tour was amazing! We were visiting in Marseille and unsure what to do after looking on trip advisor I spotted this tour. Franck explained so much to us showed us around and gave options as tosh at we wanted to see! This free tour is worth it and only requires a donation. A great way to see Marseille!
