Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,435 reviews

I did the red and blue lines and the service was excellent. Georgia one of the drivers was really great. Georgina one of the guides and sales agents was very informative with a great personality. Marseille is just beautiful and on/off gets you to anything and everything of interest.

This was definitely the highlight of our visit. It’s great for teenagers and so interesting to walk around and see the art. I will look for tours like this again when I visit Euro cities.

This audio tour was fantastic. Very accurate location, interesting facts and clear audio.

Awesome way to tour the city. Easy to locate and stop right at the main attractions.

Unfortunately, not all of the headphone jacks worked. Otherwise a good round.
