Nadia was my greeter. She did a very good job. I had city tours in many foreign cities, but this tour was the best. I appreciated it because of her knowledge of the city. She told me and showed me things I would not have seen otherwise. It was no boring history lesson, but she told mainly about the the... More

Can't recommend this enough. Nicole was waiting for us on time at the agreed meeting place. We had a great time with her. A very interesting 3.5 hour tour followed by an enjoyable lunch at a great restaurant. Nicole's English was outstanding and her enthusiasm infectious. We had our doubts about Marseille as a cruise destination but we will definitely... More

Marseille Provence Greeters is absolutely the way to go. Our guide was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I wanted to see things off the beaten path as well as the regular tourist sites and she took us to some wonderful little places that only locals would know. Whatever your interest, they are happy to accommodate you.

It is certainly an enriching experience to know about a city from a local who has been a part of it for a long while. Michelle, my tour guide, turned out to be exactly that. I booked the tour on short notice and I'm glad they were able to accommodate me. Meeting up with Michelle was smooth, she gave me... More

Our Greeter met us at the agreed place. She was delightful. We discussed what we were going to do for the day and proceeded on our way. Unfortunately my husband fell and injured his hands.

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.
