Our tour guide was fabulous! We saw so many great areas of Marseille, and we loved the private tour (no huge group with radios and ear pieces!) He customized our tour based on what we wanted to see, and where we had already been. Highly recommend!

This tour was great. The fountain looks exactly as pictured. The basilica and cathedral were beautiful. The views of the city from the top of the hill outside Basilica of Our Lady of the Guard was amazing. Little fisherman area with the shops and restaurants was really nice. The guide was great, so knowledgeable and kind. I think her name was Diana (may be wrong).

Djilani was our guide and he was awesome! We also met a few other couples that were very friendly do made tour great! Loved seeing Notre Dame and Le Palais Longchamp… our driver even went out of his way to include one more unplanned stop at another church. Additionally we stopped at a cute bakery that has a lot of history and we had free time in Marseille too! Our tour guide was funny and the overall vibe was great. We even did a group video at the end for his wife because it was her birthday! Thank you Djilani for making it great for us!

Joe gave a beautiful tour of his city. He highlighted all the most photogenic and historic areas of Marseille. Really appreciated his candor and attitude. He was a very jolly fellow that made us all feel very comfortable. I highly recommend his tour if you are short on time and would like to spend time in the most important parts of Marseille.

Marseille is beautiful and charming. Might be a different french experience but totally worth the day tour! Silvio was a great guide and driver! Nice to hear his local experiences living in the city. We visited a lot of places that we couldn't have been able to see if we just took a taxi. Perfect if you are on a cruise shore excursion and have limited time to explore.

Too much driving
Edward_A
, Jun 2022
The guide/driver was very knowledgeable. However driving was an issue. She hit a person on the side walk with her side mirror. (Person was fine) She also used her phone alot while driving - we realize she needed to stay in touch with the other driver but speaker phone or hands free talking would be a better option. (Especially using stick shift in very small roads and alleys) We hit alot of traffic due to things outside her control so spent more time driving then we would have liked. At the end we wanted more time in old Town then we had left due to traffic - everyone in the vehicle wanted to stay and she gave us extra time. Overall guide/driver was knowledgeable and nice but would be better with separate driver so she could focus on being a guide which seemed to be her area of expertise.

Dear guest after investigation, on that day we did have the visit of our president and so many big road were blooked to traffic.To be able to continue the tour, the tour guide took smaller streets and for sure that was big traffic there .we will take note on your proposal and we do apologize for all inconvinience.

Interesting facts, hard to see sights from a packed bus.

The fountain and the basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde, were great stops, breath taking. However, the guide had a very thick French accent and spoke very fast, he was hard to understand. We were added to a tour from another ship that picked up at a different part of the port, 3 miles away. We had to contact the guide to be picked up from where we were. We left the tour early and made our way back to our ship on our own.

Dear Guest , after investigation the tour went from cruise terminal as normal ,your ship did dock far away from the start point (as some ship like vicking,Silver... smaller size Ship dock far 3 miles sometimes, that why is import to set the ship name in your reservation or pick up address if you are in hotel) to avoid you extra expensive and time our bus did collect just there by the old port were your ship is docking and like this point is include on our descriptif (old port were your ship is docked) I understand why you left the tour and join your ship by your own. We do thank you for your feedback and we will take your note seriously to be better in the future.

Can’t go wrong with Domitia Tours and Djilani!
Lauren_J

Hats off to Domitia Tours and especially Djilani! Apparently no one else booked this tour for 6 but they did it anyway just for my husband and me. The content of the tour was perfect - saw the beautiful highlights of Marseille in about 3 hours. Djilani, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and fun. Would highly recommend Domitia Tours.
