We recently were in Marseille for a day. I had found this association on the Internet. We had the most informative day with Christian-Marie. He is rightly so proud of his city. Without this tour we would have left Marseille with no knowledge of the city nor would we have seen any of the nooks and crannies. It is all... More

Our greeter, Michelle, was a delight and we remain in her debt for the generous way she shared her time and experience. If you want to get beyond the surface of a city like Marseille, this is a great way to do it. Michelle introduced us to the city's bus service and then proceeded to show us the city from... More

Our greeter, Isabelle, was delightful! She was very enthusiastic about her lovely city, and after learning that my husband is an architect, she tailored our tour to show him things she thought would be of particular interest, which was very exciting to him. We were quite impressed with the amount of time Isabelle spent with us, as we did not... More

We booked a walk with Marseille greeters after reading about the service on tripadvisor and are so glad we did. Maylis contacted us by email a few hours after our enquiry and arranged where and when we would meet her. The walking tour took about 3 hours and we learnt so much about this beautiful city. Maylis is very knowledgable... More

Private walking tour that relies on donations. We had Christian as our guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the city, the history & interesting to go with it. And he spoke perfect English & gave us plenty of time if we wanted to look further at anything. You can choose what areas you would like to focus on. Take your... More

Dear Angela, Thanks for your review. We're happy to read that your stroll with Christian has been great and even if we would take a lot more people during our walks. And being not professionnals, our Greeters don't walk with more than 6 persons because it allowed them keep this moment private and to be able to let everyone discuss... More

Our volunteer greeter, Catherine, was excellent. She gave us some concise history of Marseille, strolled with us for almost two hours and showed us how to continue our sightseeing on our own. We arrived late to our meeting point, but she was patient and gracious. It was ideal to get an introduction to Marseille from a local.

A personal tour with a local, how can you better get the real information from a city. Nice people show you their city. Of course a generous tip is expected but this is fair for a good service

We had an excellent volunteer who did a great job of informing us of the history of the area we chose to see. It was great to hear from a native who also could recommend what else to see and where to eat!!! Excellent experience!
