Overall rating

2.0 / 5

The tour was good but it was sometimes difficult to follow the directions. The English pronunciation of the French street signs also made things a bit difficult. But it took us to all the main sites in Marseille and gave us a good history of each. There is a lot of walking so wouldn't recommend for people with mobility issues.
