Marseille Marseille Tour Excursion Reviews

See Marseille's beautiful cathedral and more in this tour of France's second largest city.
Tour guide's English wasn't great.
Sail Date: April 2019
Tour guide's English wasn't great. She was oftentimes out of words. She should have looked them up in a dictionary before the excursion, not during. She was asking Russian guests for help with finding the right words in English.

we drove to the Corniche which was very interesting and the tour in town was not exceptional - there were demonstrations at the time so we didn't go far from the bus to wander around. We all said this was our least favorite port.

We did not pay for this tour as it was included as an early booking gift. It worked out very well as the port is some way from the centre. There was a drive through the town with sites pointed out then a visit to the Basilica Notre Dame de la Garde on the hill before going back to the town and a visit to the magnificent Palais Longchamp. We then spent the afternoon exploring the town on our own before catching the shuttle back to the boat. The shuttle was included in our excursion deal. Read Less

It was an open bus tour of city, and the bus was old, earpiece plug did not get great reception keep cutting in and out. The bus flew through the tour and in less than 20 minutes your done.

The first half was not special. The basilica visit at the end was much better, but required walking up and down a few hundred steps. No time to shop at the end.
