Hello my dear Cruise Passengers!
These tours are specially made for you, who will be landing soon at Marseilles. Instead of choosing a bus excursion tour, I propose to you a private stroll in Marseilles so as to discover its inner part in a more intimate way.
The cruise harbour of Marseilles is located 20 km north from the town centre. Some shuttles, provided by your cruise line, pick you up in front of the ship and drop you off in the city centre. It takes more or less 30 min to reach the Old Port shuttle stop, where I could meet you at the time of your choice. No rush, we can easily meet at 9:30 or 10:00, we will go at our own pace anyway!
If some of you have difficulties to walk or need a wheelchair, we will adapt our itinerary. I am used to strolling with all kinds of audience.
Option: We can also meet you at your ship and take a taxi to reach the town centre. This additional cost is not included in my fees.
What to see, where to go?
If you only have a few hours to spend in Marseilles, I can easily show you the must-see sights, but also make you feel as if you were living in the city. My tours are a unique mix of sightseeing, culture and meetings.
Marseilles Must-see sites Tour in a 4 hour walking tour:
Our journey begins at the foot of the Old port and ends at the heights of the old town. The visit covers a lot of historical buildings. (the city hall, « les Accoules » Church, « Hôtel de Cabre », Vieille Charité, Cathedrale la Major and Fort St Jean). The area is mainly pedestrian. However,please note that there are many stairs. I refer of course to the colourful history of Marseilles, but also to many stories I’ve been told by the district’s inhabitants. I embellish my visit with visual archives on my Ipad. Last but not least, we will arrive at MuCEM, and discover its terrific building along with the history of the Fortress St Jean. A must-see site!
If you have more time:
I invite you to choose according to your own interests, any tour from my catalog. I will prepare for you an itinerary that will fit perfectly with your timescale. You won’t miss your ship!
