Tour description

In this FreeTour, we will show you the Marseilles Marseille. That where the luxury of the colonial era and the splendor of the empire mingle with the heartbreaking stories of the Algerian war and the violence of the Marseilles mafia. This part of the city is the most unknown and, nevertheless, it is the one that houses its most impressive monuments for its history and for its visual beauty. We will begin knowing the Opera de Marseille and the great avenue of La Canebière and then enter the intricacies of an ancient but alive city: the indispensable market of Capuchins, the monumental Préfecture or the church of Reformés are just some of the monuments that we will show. The perfect finish of the tour will be the artistic marvel of the Palais Longchamp whose visit is irreplaceable and will not leave anyone indifferent. In two and a half hours of the tour the greatness of Marseille awaits you! Do not miss it!

Estuve en el punto de encuentro y la persona no se presentó. Al otro día tenia programado otro tour y me lo cancelaron por condiciones meteorológicas que luego nunca ocurrieron. Un desastre! Uno nunca llegó al lugar y el otro me canceló un día antes

En primer lugar se me citó a las 15:00 en el ayuntamiento de Marsella , viendo que no aparecía nadie , intenté contactar con el guía y tras varios mensajes no hubo respuesta , solo un mensaje tipo que decía q el tour se haría a las 16:30 , tras esperar en el punto de encuentro más de 1/2 h y otros varios mensajes sin contestar decidí irme por mi cuenta , no me parece serio q dejen a varias personas tiradas cuando se podía haber cogido el tours con otro operador y no q nos quedaremos sin hacerlo por vuestra mala gestión , ya q entiendo q ha podido suceder algo pero al menos se contesta .

Pesima, nunca fueron a nuestro encuentro ni tampoco nos avisaron q se cancelaba, esperamos media hora bajo el sol, y como no vino nadie de la empresa tuvimos q ir x nuestra cuenta y perdimos mucho tiempo, claramente no lo recomiendo, hice varios free tour con civitatis, y nada q ver, super profesionales

Me gustó mucho cómo explicó David la ciudad y la historia que la acontece. Si tuviese que poner un pero diría que iba muy rápido y no hizo ninguna parada de 5 min para entrar en los edificios.
