We just finished the tour with Isabelle Louis and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's really a great way to see Marseille, through the eyes of a local. Isabelle was very knowledgeable and while she showed us the main attractions, she also brought us to off the tourist track areas which we appreciated very much. She introduced us to an artist...

My stroll along the central streets of Marseille with Patrick was simply amazing, from the magic suq in the city center to the hidden view of Notre Dame de la Garde, from the unexpected history hidden in...

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

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

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
