We took the mini-train to Notre Dame and it was allot of fun. Notre Dame is just beautiful and you'll regret it is you don't go there when you are in Marseile.

Save your money and skip the 15 Euro tourist train. The #60 city bus from the harbor will take you straight here. A day pass is 5.20 and includes the trams and metro.

There is the Petit Train bus tour that takes you up from the old port to the Basilica but I am not aware of any tours of the church itself. You do not really need it.
