Marseille Highlights with private guide

Marseille: insolent, happy to be alive and more independent than ever.
~Blaise Cendrars

This private tour will give you an idea of the 2600-year history and the basic vibe of the rollicking city. We'll hit the important sites around the Old Port and the main street, La Canebiére. Then, we'll visit the oldest neighborhood in France, Le Panier. You'll see that loud, proud Marseille is like no other city in France.

*See the views from Fort St. Jean's ramparts. CLOSED ON TUESDAYS.

A Recent Review of this tour

Kathy was warm and engaging and went out of her way to give us an experience that aligned with our interests. She had a good grasp of the history and politics of the town and shared some of her favourite places, as well as her insights into living in Marseilles - all of which we appreciated. She even helped booked the Hammam for us. We had a lovely time.
