Fantastic tour
ScrivT, Oct 2019
Fantastic tour with superb guide. We gained knowledge of street art and its place in Marseille life and culture. At the same time we really enjoyed walking around key areas of central Marseille. The tour is a top recommendation. Thanks Ugo.

I love hunting for street art in cities I travel to....and Marseille did not disappoint. This walking tour was fun to see the art open up before our eyes as we wandered through the streets. I loved hearing the background stories of the artists and what the art we were looking at represented. Our guide was super friendly and well informed. He was also very helpful in guiding me to me next stop using the Metro
Ugo opened our eyes to the fantastic art and culture of Mars

2 Anglo Canadians took Ugo's French tour- in part to improve our French and he was superb! He spoke clearly, slowly, and knowledgeably. He was au courant with all the street artists and their websites, games and apps. His deep love and appreciation of his city opened our eyes and our hearts. Grace á Ugo, we saw beneath the surface of Mars! Merci mille fois.

we had met Ugo the day before as we also took the historical walking tour with him, best tour guide ever! i am a huge fan of graffiti so being able to walk around for 3 hours and see parts of the city that normally you would not see as they are off the beaten track it is my ideal type of walking tour. I recommend this whole heartedly as we also spoke about the neighbourhoods history, restaurants, shops and anything around it. Ugo is very open he likes to keep his tour groups small because he is interested to connect with his customers and answer any questions you might have about history, daily life and restaurant tips! I saw amazing street art in this tour, heard about street art projects specifically done in Marseilles and seen areas i probably would have never found on my own. Also a great overall history of the city. I truly enjoyed it! thanks again Ugo for such an insightful walk also thanks for being so patient with my picture taking!

Visite passionnante et tout en couleur des graffitis de Marseille qui vous fera découvrir des quartiers très sympathique. Le guide est super sympa et connait tres bien son sujet!! à faire et à refaire.. Il parait que les graffitis changent périodiquement. Merci pour ces superbes moments. see you soon.
