Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 1,922 reviews

The 48-hr city pass has made my stay in Marseille easy. I took bus or tram, and the boat Le Bateau Frioul-If. After paying over 5 EUR, I visited 2 islands, that was a good choice. Lunch at Frioul Island was authentic and delicious. I also took the little train to the Basilique Notre-Dame. The hill was stiff, so it definitely saved some energy by taking the train.

Absolutely brilliant tour, not to be missed. Very interesting to hear about how Marseille, came to be a tourist destination. Practical and comfortable way to see Aix-en-Provence and Cassis. Decent amount of free time dedicated to exploring both towns on your own, with good suggestions of things to see.

This was definitely the highlight of our visit. It’s great for teenagers and so interesting to walk around and see the art. I will look for tours like this again when I visit Euro cities.

Great pass, visited 6 museums with it and rides metro e bus and got discount on ride to Notre-Dame and entrance

This audio tour was fantastic. Very accurate location, interesting facts and clear audio.
