A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour was wonderful. Anna was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Marseille. She knew all the answers to our inquiries and tailored her tour to match our interests as she got to know us. There was definitely a LOT of walking, including stairs and hills, but worth the views and information we got. Anna planned her stops well so that we could rest in the shade and that older members of our group did not overexert in the heat. I would definitely book with her again!
