Free Walking Tour
LE PANIER Historic neighborhood
Join us to explore this wonderful city aged of 2.600 years on a two and a half hours walking tour through which we will get on an exciting journey.
We try to take free walking tours in most cities we visit because the guides are always energetic and fun and always have a true passion for the places they are describing to their visitors. Marseilles Free Tours was no exception. Our guide, Ezequiel, is not originally from Marseilles but chose to move there a few years ago. He said he fell in love with Marseilles and decided to run the tours to introduce tourists to his new city. His passion for history and his knowledge about and love for Marseilles came through during the tour. Ezequiel’s English was excellent and his accent easy to understand. We were originally not planning to take a tour in Marseilles because of it’s reputation for being unsafe and uninteresting. Ezequiel showed us how Marseilles has changed and is becoming a clean, safe, entertaining and clever city for both tourists and locals. The only thing I could say is that it is a long walk – 3 hours. I might suggest they think about including some time for a bathroom break or to pick up a bottle of water along the way. We highly recommend making the time to do the Marseilles Free walking tour.
This tour is a great introduction to a great city. My husband and I learned so much about the history of Marseille. The visit to Le Panier ended with a delicious lunch at an outdoor café. Our guide was interesting, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We definitely recommend Marseille as a destination and the Free Walking Tour as a first step to your visit.

We took the tour as a family in September and had a great time. The guide, Ezequiel, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us a historical walk of the vieux port and surrounding neighborhoods. After he gave us great tips on where to go and what to try for food. It was a great experience and we would definitely recommend taking this tour with them, Thank you Ezequiel!
Hi there !
My name is Sebastian. I was born and raised in Bernal, South Buenos Aires where I lived until I was 23. At first, I studied to be an interior designer until a trip to Europe made me realize that my true passion was travelling and tourism. So on my return from the old continent, I immediately signed up for Tourism studies at one of the best universities in Buenos Aires. I was awarded my diploma as a tour guide as well as my Bachelors in Tourism in 2010. While studying, I also worked in travel agencies and hostels which is how I met my wife – a true « Marseillaise »! We lived together in Argentina and Uruguay before coming back to her motherland and settling here in the city of the sun: we just couldn’t resist its charm! In French, Spanish or English, I will do my best to share my knowledge and my passion about this city. See you soon!
Hello everybody !
What’s up? My name is Ezequiel and I was born in a small village of La Pampa Argentina. I am an anthropologist by profession, historian by vocation, photographer by the love of art and above all passionate about traveling to know different cultures and realities. That’s why, a long time ago, I left home and started travelling through Latin America, with my backpack as my only companion. Arriving in Mexico, I met a French girl and fell in love… And that is how 4 years ago, I found myself catapulted across the Atlantic Ocean to continue my adventure in the oldest city in France, Marseille – beautiful and mixed, not speaking a word of French and without a penny in my pocket. I was immediately snapped up by the Phocaean city where I now continue my journey taking advantage of its breathtaking beauty every day.
