J'ai passé une excellente visite en tête à tête avec Jean-Marc, un habitant passionnant (et passionné !) du 7ème arrondissement de Marseille. Je le recommande les yeux fermés et n'hésiterai pas à faire à nouveau appel à lui à l'avenir !

You can tell he’s passionate for Marseille, very knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and flexible. He walk us through truthfully hidden gems while explaining the city in a fascinated way. He gave us a glimpse of Marseille and sure enough made us want to come back!
