nice walk around Marseille

Our tour guide was nice and our walk around Marseille OK and informative but not over the top... as I said it was nice. I think that Marseille definetely has potential for more, e.g. it would have been nice to walk at least to one of the 2 cathedrals.. As the tours are highly depending of the attitude and the personality of the tour guide it would may have been nice to have a more talkative/extrovert guide .... All-in all I´d definetely recommend this tour.

Great and Flexible Guide

Our group of six had Paco as our guide for our 4 hour tour of Marseille. He was knowledgeable and flexible in terms of what we wanted to see. We started by walking through the Le Panier section, took the mini-train for a view of the coast and up to the main cathedral in town. He also provided recommendations for restaurants; one of them turned out to be the favorite of our entire trip through southern France.

Quality of the city tour very bad

Our guide picked us up at the port. She spoke German very badly and only talked to participants from the group who were walking right next to her. Even when I asked the assembled group to say something about Notre-Dame de la Garde, only half of the group got through the quiet and incomprehensible voice, although everyone tried very hard to listen. Furthermore, they didn't wait until the group stood together at a building, but explained two or three sentences to the people next to them and it went on. When I book a city guide, I assume that they have in-depth knowledge of the history of the city, individual buildings or general information about the city. Unfortunately, that was completely missing here. I cannot recommend this tour to anyone.
