I had a very pleasant moment, walking in the Marseille Street Art ! I didn't know Marseille from this angle. I can now explain the graffiti and quote some famous graffiti artists. The guide is very pleasant and adapts very well to all languages (English, Spanish, French). I recommended the visit to my friends and colleagues in Marseille. To do, otherwise you will miss what's behind the graffiti.

We have discovered and learned to appreciate a fantastic part of the city that we would certainly not see otherwise... have returned afterwards, a melting pot of atmosphere and culture.. you have to have done it to recognize and recognize different seen artists, styles, shops, passionate guide. Top!!

You get to discover the city of Marseille from a different perspective and the content is really surprising and interesting. Its obvious the street art community in the city is very active and vibrant. Overall really liked it. Excellent walking tour!

Our guide swept us away with her enthusiasm for street art. A great tour that leads to interesting spots and offers socio-political insights.
