Marseille City Tour Excursion Reviews

A city tour is the perfect introduction to Marseille. Enjoy seeing the city's top attractions, including Notre Dame de la Garde, the Marseille Old Port, and Fort Saint Jean.

Another example on the incredible public works of the ancient Roman Empire.
Another example on the incredible public works of the ancient Roman Empire. This aqueduct is an incredible feat of engineering that is still standing after 2,000 years. We were most impressed with the size of the bridge - it is BIG!

This was the City Drive and Notre Dame de la Garde. It was a half day tour which I felt exposed us to the best sites in Marseille and left us some time to relax. On a cruise such as the one we took, which had only two sea days in two weeks, it is easy to get exhausted trying to see EVERYTHING. But we have cruised in the Mediterranean before and hopefully will do so again and so we can leave some sites unseen. Truth is, though, we have been to Aix-en-Provence and Avignon before. Also, if you are in the area, Carcassonne is well worth a visit. Read Less

The tour was quite good but did not cover all that many sights in the city. Perhaps the city doesn't have many sights worth covering, but we'll never know. We visited the hilltop Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde, an extravagant edifice well worth a visit, though on the day of our visit the Mistral was blowing particularly strongly and it was difficult to keep your feet up there. We took a scenic drive with short photo stop along the Corniche Kennedy with views out to the Chateau d'If of Count of Monte Cristo fame, and had free time in the Old Port (Vieux Port) where there are many bars, restaurants and shops to visit as well as the photogenic harbour scene.

Too rushed in LeBaux. They didn't give us enough time to go to the top of the town. No time to wander around in either town. The port of Marseille is very industrial and smelly!

Basilica of Notre Dame de la Gorde What a wonderful old church with an amazing view. The guide, Paco, was a true joy. One time when we were stuck in a traffic jam he got out and personally directed traffic (said he had to go show them how to drive). I am in awe of the ability of the bus drivers to manipulate the huge buses through VERY narrow streets! Read Less
