What a beautiful experience. I love doing audio walking tours and this one was fantastic. I chose to walk at the end of the day while the streets were still quite lively and the Panier district was bathed in golden light. The facts, curiosities and stories presented in the audito tour were delightful and fun. The commentary was very fun and they even suggest places to eat and shop. Abosulte top activity to do in Marseille!!

I loved both activities. I started with the guided tour of the cart on the phone (a concept that I did not know and which is fun with very interesting stories) then I took the bus which stopped us at many places! Very nice, the two activities are of high quality and match perfectly :) thank you !!

A very interessting and wonderfull tour with my guide Abadou who knows his city very well. Very patient (my first segway tour),he is a good teacher,very considerate and attentive. A real gentleman with a good sense of humor. To recommend! 5 Stars Thank you Abadou!

The walk was great, we visited Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica. The bus makes several stops so you can visit and take it back whenever you want, once the ticket has been purchased it is valid until 5 p.m. you can take it at the time you want

Visit of the Basket very interesting, top activity and at our own pace. I recommend
