We had one day in Marseille and loved the time that we spent with Nicole in the Old Town area of Marseille. This was an alternative to other shore excursions from our cruise ship and was a wonderful alternative to a typical shore excursion. Nicole was friendly, informative and open to our wishes. She spent about 6 hours with us... More

Merci Beaucoup to Christian! He met me at 9am, Sunday, and we walked throughout the beautiful city of Marseille. He explained the history of many of the sights, showing me parts of the city I would not have seen without his help and insight. Christian was extremely kind and patient and stopped for me when I took photos. He gave... More

This is the first time ever tried out Greeters and it was absolutely wonderful! We had a really charming and knowledgable tour guide who walked with us to some of Marseille's hidden gems. One of our favorite days in this beautiful city thanks to our fantastic greeter.

All organised on-line and easy to do. Had a great time with our greeter and her partner and they showed all the little quirky things that only locals know about. My husband and I really enjoyed their company and knowledge and we would certainly do a similar tour again.

We so enjoyed our Tour in Marseille. It was our third visit, and we saw areas that we had never seen. Our guide was informative and very interested in what we wanted to see!

I love the idea of 'greeters', local people showing off the best bits of their city to us pesky tourists. I love the informality, the intimacy of it only being your small party (it was just my girlfriend and me) and your greeter. We met Christian down by the old harbour and spent the next 3 hours immersed in a... More
