We were very excited about this tour. Arrived at the designated point on time, waited for 20 minutes, called the operator multiple times (went straight to voice mail), sent text messages with no response.
Pleased to say Viator customer service happily refunded our ticket cost but still disappointed to miss the tour experience.

Fantastic intro to Marseille
Nov 2019
We were a small group of four friends, arrived in Marseilles only the day before. Elisabeth met us down at the old port and immediately started to talk about the history around us, so we got off to a great start. The pace of the tour was great: there was time to ask lots of questions and Elisabeth was very knowledgeable and friendly. We ambled through the old port and into the oldest part of Marseilles, which was fascinating and definitely enriched by having someone with local knowledge. The food that we tried was great! I loved that we finished the tour by eating lunch in an apartment in the old town, and trying examples of local food. The time passed really quickly and we were thoroughly satisfied with the whole experience.

Not your typical foodie tour which I have done all over Europe. Would not recommend
Aug 2019
This was more like a strange history tour that ended with a picnic at Lawrence house. The food tours I’ve been on in other parts of Europe you meet the purveyors of the little restaurant or store and they tell you about their food ingredients why it’s made the way it is etc. that was not the case here. It was a lot of boring history to be honest with you. Some of the people on the tour were ready to leave they were so hot and tired and thirsty I think it was about 2 1/2 or three hours before we actually got to his house at eight there was plenty of food that’s for sure but he really didn’t tell us much about any of it. I think a lot of it had to do with not a great command of the English language .

By far our favorite tour we took during our 11 day vacation!
Aug 2019
We would highly recommend this tour! Laurent was very knowledgeable and took us into many different places showing us the true melting pot that Marseilles is. We enjoyed seafood, Lebanese food, Algerian food, pizza and so much more. We would get to taste a little something at each place while he packed his picnic basket with items along the way. He also brought us into different types of shops along the way. We really got to see how true locals live in this area. The tour was finished off with a picnic at his home on his beautiful patio where we got to enjoy an array of food and drinks.

Very poor quality tour.
Jun 2019 • Friends
We chose this tour because of the TA reviews but, alas, we didn't have Laurent as our guide.

Our guide was absolutely hopeless.

His English was far too limited to do a tour for native English-speaking people.

Not only that, but he really didn't know very much at all about the city or the food.The combination of the two things made for a very tedious three hours.

At the start of the tour, we stopped at a fish stall where he purchased some tiny shells and then just handed them to us without any explanation whatsoever.

At one stage, as we entered a building, he advised us how to say hello, thank you and goodbye in French! Fine if you are speaking to a group of small children but there can be few educated adults in the Western world who do not know these words!

We were shown into one building which had some interesting photos of local food producers on the walls but he was unable to tell us anything about them.

He felt that the highlight in gastronomic terms was the slice of pizza that we were given! There may well be a sizeable Italian community in Marseille but that was completely irrelevant fare to give us on a local food tour.

The worst part was when we were left for over 20 minutes standing on a pavement in an area where there were no bars or cafés to sit in while he did the shopping for the picnic. This was absolutely ludicrous. He didn't even tell us what he was going to do.

Potentially, the picnic could have been quite nice but, again, he knew virtually nothing about the produce that he bought. He said the food and wine was 'local' but the cheap white Burgundy most certainly was not! The red wine was local but he had no knowledge of the grape it was made from.

It would have been a simple matter to do the shopping for the picnic before the tour started.

It was at the picnic that I discovered what I expected which was that Benjamin had only been doing the tours for two weeks!

This was all made worse by the fact that I paid for our 2 guests as a special treat for them.

I have done many food and other tours in European cities and up until now they have all been great. I'm afraid this was hopeless. It was, to be blunt, a rip off!

Fantastic tour. Would thoroughly recommended to anyone interested in local food and culture. Laurent was a great guide and so hospitable allowing us into his home. Also big thanks to Anita and Kathy who also joined us and made us feel like friends not clients. Big thanks again for a wonderful look around Marseille.

Feel Like a Local in Marseille
May 2019 • Family
My parents and I went on a cruise all throughout Europe, and Marseille was by far one of our favorite stops thanks to Laurent! He was full of so much knowledge and brought us into areas of the city that we would have never discovered without him. We got to taste not just French cuisine, but got an authentic experience by trying foods from all the different cultures that make up Marseille. He was such a pleasure to tour the city with! If you want to feel like a local rather than a tourist, this is for you!

A multicultural food tour of Marseille
May 2019 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Laurent, who gave us a contemporary view (and taste) of Marseille with an historical look at the city's role in commerce and history. Laurent and Benjamin were very knowledgable and the tour was wonderfully paced for all those in our large party (11 people ranging from age 3 to 65). The make-up of Marseille was highlighted in a very ethnically diverse community that is juxtaposed on rich French tradition.
Laurent was excellent with the four children in our group as well and I would recommend him as a guide for those traveling with youngsters. We also appreciated the quick response to a shellfish allergy experienced within our group.

Thank you Laurent and Benjamin!!!

Beautiful discovery of unknown Marseille
Mar 2019 • Friends
Marseille is a beautiful city that needs to be discovered. It is a melting pot of culture - colours - food and architecture. Laurent was the perfect guide to show us the diversity of the city and tasting amazing local sea food and other specialities.
