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.
