What people are saying about Marseille Opera

Overall rating

3.7 / 5

The tour was good but it was sometimes difficult to follow the directions. The English pronunciation of the French street signs also made things a bit difficult. But it took us to all the main sites in Marseille and gave us a good history of each. There is a lot of walking so wouldn't recommend for people with mobility issues.

Very playful activity which was enjoyed by children aged 5, 11 and 13. The puzzles are well made to interest the little ones and be solved by the older ones. Anecdotes that allow you to learn more about this city.

Nice and fun course. A very good way to involve teenagers and pre-teens in the discovery of a part of the city. You can complete by visiting Notre Dame de la garde, the cornice and Pharo beach.

We had a great time with our two children aged 8 and 10. Very fun activity to stroll through the streets of Marseille

Very good but not suitable for people under 10 and over 80 you have to walk a lot
