It was really nice walk around Marseille. Our guide, Charles, was so passionate about telling lots of things about the city, and especially the pictures and maps in the past which he brought for the tour was really helpful to better comprehend how it changed and what happened in this beautiful city. Even though I joined one hour late, he didn’t just ignore the absence and kept contacting me so that I could reach him and he sent me an email to inform me the spots I missed and also good restaurants and places to visit during the stay. I really recommend the tour with Charles!

Charles was a terrific guide, one of the best we have ever had! First of all, the pace of the walking tour was perfect. We could really see much more than if we had tried to do a hop on hop off tour, and he was able to give us more information. He has wonderful English language skills, a very friendly personality, good sense of humor, and in depth knowledge of history. This is a wonderful activity on your first visit to Marseille!

If you are not ready for steps galore and incline after incline, get ready. By the end I was so pleased and proud I had accomplished it. The Guide is super. He knows his history, geography, sociology and loves to share Marseille with you. I highly recommend the tour.

Charles was such a great guide. He's friendly and full of information about the buildings and history of Marseille. It was so good to see the beautiful little back streets as well as the big things. I would highly recommend a tour with him😊

Fantastic day! Throughly enjoyed everything from the bikes to the places to the guide! Fab day! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
