Uncovered so much of Marseille that I didn't know existed.

The history of Marseille's epic work to bring water to the city was brought to life with the stop at the Palais Longchamp. The height of everything is measured in distance above sea level, but we got to see the instrument that established what sea level is ! There was so much more but it's best you take the tour and see for yourself. - Wellll... one more. The oldest bakery in Marseille (yum!)

Marseille Highlights
Nov 2019 • Family
We were not planning on touring the "city" during our cruise's one day shore stay, but booking this 4 hour tour turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise! Djilani was very professional yet friendly and welcoming to our family of four. His knowledge of history and care for our timing was outstanding. I was very pleased to see the most historical and culturally significant highlights of Marseille, afterall, thanks to him! Offering to take our family photo several times was a nice touch and one we did not have on other tours. Highly recommend!
Point to note: Meeting place was a bit of a walk (13-14 min briskly) first thing off the ship, but instructions in viator confirmation were concise. Drop off right at the terminal gate.

We were lucky enough to have a very personal tour - no one else had signed up for the same tour so we got our own tour guide for the morning. The guide was very knowledgeable, very
proud of his city and spoke excellent English. He tailored the tour to the time of day (took us to the cathedral first since it was Sunday and he wanted to avoid Mass as well as the tours that would show up later in the morning. As a result, we had a great experience and did not have to fight the crowds. I think we saw a good sample of the major attractions and were able to learn about the history as well as current life-styes. Our tour guide was Djilani and we highly recommend him and his company for a well-organized, interesting and informative tour.

Very Disappointed
Following a 15 minute walk to the meeting point (as described in the tour description), the guide, Suzzanne, picked us up, on foot, and escorted us on another walk, this time, to the place where the bus was SUPPOSED to be waiting for us. What followed was a half hour wait at a dangerous truck depot until the bus finally arrived. During that time, the guide pretty much ignored us and gave no information. Once on the road, the guide hardly narrated, and when she did, it seemed that, in her so-so English, only told us the number if inhabitants in each place we passed. At Longchamp Palace, she handed us a page from the internet instead of telling us anything. In Marseille, she announced time on our own... no difference from the rest of the tour.. we felt on our own throughout. At Notre Dama de la Garde, a beautiful Basilica, one of the other people on the tour asked, "What is this place?" Our guides entire explanation was that "It is a basilic." She sat at the bottom if the long stairway while most of us climbed to guidelessly to see this major attraction.
My gut feeling us that the tour company put on a last minute guide and hired a last minute full sized bus (for a small group tour), as our experience proved very different from what other reviewers described. We complained to the booking agent, Viator, but ultimately they stood behind Domitia Tours, and gave us no satisfaction.

Dear Guest , The harbor of Marseille is a private Harbor owned by Cruise Companies they do impose that our buses do not go ship pear, that why we do ask our guest to walk to the meeting spot, the buses parking is just by the border police department, the cruise terminal is full every where with police camera and security Agent nothing to be afraid from. The tour guide that did operate this group she do have a guide license and work as tour guide since 1995 this is not her first group but we will lead an internal audit with her to check what happen on that date .For our minivan we do have an occurrente problem since the begin of October , that's why we did operate the tour on our bigger bus , We do apologize for you did feel and go through on that day, and we will try to do better in future.

DJILANI was my tour guide and I would highly recommend him.He is very knowledgeable of Marseille and explains the details of the city. I was in a small group of eight which made it more intimate, and was easier to ask questions and get a better understanding as compared to a large bus group....he was very accommodating as I wanted perfume, and he stopped by Fragonard so I picked up a few. On a whole it was enjoyable and we were happy.
He has a good sense of humor.
Enjoy and have fun !

We booked a small group private tour to Marseille - party of 6. We were picked up from the port in a comfortable and clean van with a/c. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. We got to see all the tourist attractions on our list and more in the time we had available. Can definitely recommend this tour.

Poor time management
We were excited for this tour with the hopes see Marseille and its sights. Due to other customers being over 1/2 hour late we lost majority of time that was set aside for downtown and shopping. What was supposed to be a hour turned into less than 30 mins. With the high cost of this trip I am disappointed that tour did not make accommodations to extend. I am hoping that Trip Advisor will stand behind their product and make financial reparations.
