One of the best walking tours I’ve been on. Our guide was so informative and shared a lot about the history and the change that took place over the last 11 years! He was entertaining and it made the tour feel so short even though it ran past 2 hours! After the tour, he helped with directions and recommendations for food and things to do in Marseille. Highly recommend as he’s one of the best ones!
