I will absolutely be using "greeters" in every city that I travel from now on, based on the experience we had in Marseille with Christian, and this review will not do our walk justice. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend. Christian was knowledgeable, kind, and the perfect match for our personalities and interests. The matching system the greeters admin used must be very... More

Was "stuck" in Marseille because I could not get a flight out on the day I needed it. Turned out to be a good thing. I spent a half day wandering on my own, then met Caroline from Marseille Provence Greeters the next morning. Caroline had contacted me prior to my trip to ask about my interests and she took...

We had the pleasure of meeting Catherine as our guide. She spent 4 hours with our family of 5, walking throughout the old port and old city. She even joined us for lunch at a delicious local cafe. This was a wonderful way to spend our day in Marseille.
