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

Olivier, notre guide-marcheur, est éminemment sympathique. Il sait transmettre son amour pour Marseille en expliquant très clairement son histoire, sa géographie, son évolution démographique, sa mentalité... et c'est passionnant. Il évoque des histoires amusantes, il a su s'adapter avec délicatesse à la marcheuse du 3ème âge que je suis ! et ma petite-fille de 20 ans a également trouvé cette grande ballade très intéressante.
