Originally from Lyon, I fell in love with Marseille (and with a Marseillaise who shares my life today) during a trip at the beginning of my studies; an important period for me as many things shifted unexpectedly: while I was studying medicine at the university, a serious motorcycle accident forced me to stay in the hospital for two years. During this time, I studied foreign languages (including Chinese) and I decided to change career to focus on my passion for travel. After travelling the world, I discovered that the greatest pleasures were usually the simplest. As a tour guide, I wanted to share this sense of pleasure with visitors coming to discover Marseille. After several experiences in local agencies, I decided to create my own company specializing in tailor-made tours. Today I guide in French and English in the beautiful city of Marseille and its surroundings. Provence is a wonderful area full of natural, cultural and historical treasures. Also passionate about gastronomy and oenology, I like to implement these themes in my tours. At my side, discover the best of Marseille with the eyes of a local; or indulge with olive oil and rosé tastings in Provence while crossing the lavender fields. A personal detail: during my spare time, I am a volunteer gardener in fruits and vegetables community gardens. ...read more
Laurent, private and professional local guide in Marseille
LANGUAGES :
Anglais/English, Français/French
A native of Lille, I spent over 20 years in Paris before deciding to settle in Marseille, attracted by the climate and the charm of the Mediterranean. During my years in the capital, I was an actor but also an oenologist and restaurant owner, developing my passion and my skills in several renowned institutions. Since my arrival on the French Riviera, I specialized in tourism by offering tours combining wine, gastronomy and history, especially from Marseille, Aix en Provence and Cassis. I love to share my knowledge with people, being outside and exploring sites full of culture and history. I also sometimes offer mini wine courses and cooking courses in order to teach curious visitors how to combine wine and food. During my private tours, discover the culinary delights of the South of France between tapas, pastries and olive oil, as well as the most scenic places from Cassis to Arles via Les Baux de Provence. ...read more
Véronique, private and professional local guide in Marseille & Provence
LANGUAGES :
Français/French, Anglais/English
I was born in Provence and, although I’ve moved around a lot, I always come back to my village. I studied tourism and art history, before getting my official guiding qualification. In 2008, I created my own company and have been giving guided tours in my region ever since. I love getting up in the morning and going to work! This job allows me to share my region and passion, as well as meeting people from all over the world. I cover a wide range of topics including the French Riviera and Provence (local life and traditions). I’m very careful to cater for disabled visitors as well, as my cousin is in a wheelchair. I invested in a vehicle designed to carry a wheelchair and I’ve created tourist circuits adapted for people with limited mobility. In my free time, I like sewing and I’m also secretary for a charity that preserves local Provençal traditions. ...read more

LANGUAGES :
Français/French, Anglais/English, Allemand/German
I grew up in the Auvergne and moved to the sunny south 10 years ago to finish my studies. I fell in love with the beautiful region around Marseille and have lived there ever since. After finishing my studies in cultural project management and event management, I decided to launch my own company in the tourism sector. Since being declared European Culture Capital in 2013, Marseille has been attracting more and more visitors and I want to help them understand the city better. I like showing visitors the thriving artisan workshops and the local way of life. Above all, I wanted to show them all the good things about living in Marseille. Always optimistic and dynamic, I love the sun, sea and nature. My passions? Travelling and meeting people from different cultures. ...read more
