What you'll do
Starting at the most famous place of Marseille, Le Vieux Port & walking up to the inconspicuous lanes and streets of the Quartiers of Noailles and then onto Le Panier. Old Marseille has developed through the years, still retaining its authenticity. Watch the streets grow busy in the vibrant and multicultural narrow back-streets, we will give you a personal tour of these upcoming areas, in French or English. Whilst we walk and talk, we will discover the hidden parts of these neighbourhoods and their history. You will have the opportunity to interact with locals and understand their way of life. We will show you the places not to be missed or over-looked; Shops, street sellers trading their wares, street art and artist workshops, the markets selling freshest fruit and vegetables, seafood, loose spices, navettes, delicatessens, a herbalist still trading since 1815 and the oldest building dating back to 1535. We will take a pause & taste some delicious produce before stopping for a drink in a place with a magnificent view (drink price not incl). Once the tour is complete, you will feel like you have travelled through time and cultures to return to modern Marseille.
Abi & Pierre
Hi! We are your tour guides; Pierre & Abi. Pierre grew up in Marseille & lived in England, visiting over 15 countries. Showing off the Provence region is my passion & hobby, knowing how important it is to feel welcomed when experiencing a new destination. I’m Abi. I love to travel, explore & am passionate about tourism, diving myself into local life. Studying Provence for many years, it will be an honour to share its beauties with travellers from all over the world. Pierre is bilingual, speaking French and English fluently and I'm English and am learning French. Please confirm the choice whether you would like your tour in English or French. Depending on the language of your tour and the size of the group, you will get either of us to guide you or both as your guides. Look forward to meeting you on one of our tours soon :-)
