Olivier, our walking guide, is eminently friendly. He knows how to transmit his love for Marseille by explaining very clearly its history, its geography, its demographic evolution, its mentality... and it's fascinating. It evokes amusing stories, it has been able to adapt with delicacy to the walker of the 3rd age that I am! and my 20 year old granddaughter also found this great ballad very interesting.

I joined the Marseille tour this morning with Olivier. He was awesome! He showed us lots of very varied and charming neighborhoods, and not very touristy. It really gave an idea of the character of the city, and how it has developed over the years. Olivier was also very knowledgeable. It was a very good morning, thank you! Clara
