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

It was a great day, we don't speak French but that didn't stop us from having a great day out. Hosts were amazing and everyone was very kind. It was exactly what they described. Loved it!
