nice walk around Marseille

Our tour guide was nice and our walk around Marseille OK and informative but not over the top... as I said it was nice. I think that Marseille definetely has potential for more, e.g. it would have been nice to walk at least to one of the 2 cathedrals.. As the tours are highly depending of the attitude and the personality of the tour guide it would may have been nice to have a more talkative/extrovert guide .... All-in all I´d definetely recommend this tour.

Great and Flexible Guide

Our group of six had Paco as our guide for our 4 hour tour of Marseille. He was knowledgeable and flexible in terms of what we wanted to see. We started by walking through the Le Panier section, took the mini-train for a view of the coast and up to the main cathedral in town. He also provided recommendations for restaurants; one of them turned out to be the favorite of our entire trip through southern France.
