    Our guide Angi was a real sweetheart. She knew the area well and was not afraid to talk and explain things well during the tour. She constantly made sure that everyone was well looked after. The pace of the tour was well managed and everyone was able to easily keep up. What was a bit more difficult to do is to keep up with all the food and drinks that were served. If you go on this tour, make sure to arrive hungry. As for us we ended up skipping dinner afterwards. Thanks Angi, your tour was one of the best tour of our trip.

    Great activity with excellent typical Marseille tastings. Only small downside, we would have liked to have historical information on the neighborhoods we crossed.
