Visit adapted to our rhythm and built by the guide according to our tastes. We did not want an exhaustive visit of the city (it seems impossible anyway) but only impressions and to share a little of the Marseille experience of our charming guide. Having only one day to spare, our guide knew how to make us want to come back to Marseille to spend more time there...

Excellent 3 hour visit with Tiff who was very friendly and punctual. She made us discover Marseille, its monuments and its history: from the origins of the city of Marseille to our time, including the revolution and the Second World War. We also got lots of recommendations (restaurants, activities, etc) for the rest of our stay and she was able to tailor her tour to our points of interest and meeting point.

Julian has prepared very well for this tour of Marseilles. We received a friendly welcome. He had an answer ready for everything. Since Marseille can not offer a lot of architectural things, he was able to show us some highlights. Put on the good shoes, because Marseille is big and does not have everything on and around the old port.
