“Wonderful tour of Marseille”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

I contacted Nicolas in June 2013 to request for his services on Oct. 18. Nicolas was very prompt with his reply and recommended activities that would fit the travel plans of my family. He contacted me days before our trip to confirm the schedule - excellent customer service. On the day of our tour, it was such a delight to watch the reaction of other passengers and tourists as they boarded their tour buses and we boarded the tuk-tuk. Nicolas gave us a wonderful tour of Marseille; he found places for us to shop and take pictures; places that would have been hard to get to if we were on a bus. The children said it was the best way to see Marseilles. Thank you Nicolas for sharing the beauty of Marseille.

“Amazing city tour by Tuk Tuk”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Nicolas was our personnal tour guide during a one hour tuk tuk ride around la Panier in the Old city of Marseille. As we understood and spoke French it was easy to talk with him and to get additionnal information. Showed us the best sides in le Panier and we (our 2 kids and oma and also ourselves) really liked it. Nicolas, thanks again and greetings from Belgium

“Fun sightseeing!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Nicolas was a very nice guide and the 1-hour tour we had on our first day in Marseille was excellent. It was much more personable than in a open-top bus and we got to see the little fishermen's harbour where no bigger vehicle can get to. The ride to the cathedral would have been hard work by foot so this was a perfect way to go.

“We LOVED our Tuk Tuk Experience”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

The beautiful city of Marseille became one beloved city because of our fun tuk tuk ride, and our guides ability and willingness to share with us their beautiful city. We had some much fun exploring the city and going places we would never know to go without their knowledge. We had one day off the ship in Marselle from our 12-day cruise. The other days we were in other cities, and this was probably our most memorable. Only 12 of our group of 18 were able to go because of their space limitations, so reserve early. It is a bit of a challenge using their web site if you don't know French, so just send them an e-mail, that worked well for us. We took a 4-hour tour and almost wished for a couple more hours with them.

“Great Fun on a Sunny Day”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

We really enjoyed our tuk-tuk tour of Marseille. The day was sunny and it was the perfect way to see some of Marseille's sights. We chose the ballade authentic tour and Nicholas shared his knowledgeable about Marseille and its history with us in English. A really fun way to explore the city. His little tuk-tuk managed to squeeze into many places where a bus or car would struggle. At 55 euros for 2 hours and up to 3 people I felt it was great value for a personalised tour.
