I was able to arrange a tour at less than a week's notice. The guide, Norya, was knowledgeable and friendly, and spoke English well. I learned a lot about Marseille and its history. A great idea, especially if you're travelling alone.

We contacted Marseille Provence Greeters and got a quick response back that they had found someone to show us around Marseille... Nicole Blanchard was our guide and she showed us so many hidden treasures we would have never seen otherwise. She showed us everything from the Panier (old) district to the Cathedrale de la Major and La Canebiere 'main street'... More

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

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.
