We were met at cruise terminal by Julien.....there were 6 people in our group. Julien is very knowledgeable about the area and also a very pleasant man -- all of us enjoyed the company of Julien. He even went out of his way to get a postcard mailed!!!
this tour was amazing, but it was three years ago, so it is difficult to recall the details. The tour guide was well informed.
Our guide was terrific , he was very knowledgeable about the Marseille where he lived. He took us to all the sights we asked to
see and then some of the sights that were often the beaten path . He then took us on a tour to Cassis which was a beautiful area.
He recommended a fantastic restaurant for lunch and then we took a trolley ride of the area. We took the tour with another couple who was an avid photographer who took wonderful pics and sent them to me after we got back to the USA.
All in all could not have asked for a better tour or guide
Good tour but felt a little rushed..other than that, interesting explanation of Marseille.
Our driver William was at the pier on time to pick us up,he was very knowledgeable in the history of the area,he took us to the lookout were we took was fantastic photos of the city,after that we visited a church that was 600 years old and still operational,and untouched since being built.You start to wonder how they built these buildings in those days with minimal tools at their disposal.After that we went to the town of Cassis where we took a boat ride to the small fiords,also there were very high cliffs that surrounded us as we were cruising to the different passages,there was a small fee for the boat ride but it was worth it.After that we went to a restaurant for lunch by the water and we took our driver with us to share lunch. He was very good in giving us a good description of the area and its history.We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this tour very highly.These tours are a bit more expensive but when you book from the ship you have 48 people to put up with so you get to see less,think about it,you pay more you get more.
