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.
Went to the Norte Dame by the train.
Went to the Norte Dame by the train. The train ride covers the old town and street and that is what we wanted to see. Overall great fun!!!

Traffic so bad, we were only able to do 2 of the 3 tour points - namely the city tour covering Basilica of Notre Dame/Fish market, plus Cassis. On the way to Cassis, we stopped briefly at the Calanques for a visit - nothing exciting. Cassis was beautiful, but we spent the entire time waiting for our food in a restaurant recommended by our driver, thus didn't have time to explore a little bit more. Didn't make it to Aix-en-Provence due to time limitation. Read Less

The city is under construction, so the tour was uninteresting for the most part.
The city is under construction, so the tour was uninteresting for the most part. I did admire the bus driver could get down some of the narrow streets. We went to Aix en Provence as well, and it was just okay.

Did a scenic coastal drive to Cassis, Marseille, and Aix with Edward from AMP tour out of Aix. He was very knowledgeable of the areas and did a great job assisting my sister who was in a wheelchair. He even got out of the car to pick fresh herbs from the countryside. We enjoyed a 3 course meal lunch by the water. Fantastic experience! Read Less

This whole town is like under renovation b/c they are going to be called an ideal city next year or something. We took the tour not b/c we were interested in seeing the city but b/c we heard you could not walk anywhere from the port and we wanted something to do. The cruise line will offer you a shuttle the day of the excursion. Seeing as how all the points of interest are pretty much closed on the city tour, I would recommend just taking the shuttle and walk around the streets. The one place we did stop was this church on a hill. I was overwhelmed by the boat motif inside. There were boats everywhere in the church, hanging from the ceiling, all over the wall. It was quite unusual. Read Less

Nice. Not enough time to go in the Basilica so we walked around the perimeter and took pictures of the city. Lost sight of our guide and the bus wasn't where it was supposed to be. There were about 10 other passengers we recognized from our group who were also "lost". Not the cruise line or tour's fault, it was very busy and buses were being told to move so others could drop off and pick up. Read Less
