This was an open top bus tour of the highlights of Marseille. If those were the highlights, I'm not going to rush to go back. There was a tour guide on the bus, but rather than her giving a commentary, we were each given headphones and there was a pre-recorded narration, which didn't work so well. I can't honestly say there was anything that I thought looked worth visiting except the docks with its market. The only stop we made was at the Basillica, which is right on top of a hill looking over the city. To reach the base of the church from where we were dropped was about 200 steps, and there were further steps once you got there. Some of the buses even stopped further down the hill, so passengers had a fairly long walk up a steep hill before reaching the base of the steps. So a lot of people didn't even bother to go up. To me the whole trip was a waste of money and a lot of people were grumbling about it. Read Less

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 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
