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!

My passion? To travel

A must-do in Marseille ? The Marseille Free Walking Tour !

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.

Tour guide

Where am I from ? Barinas, Venezuela

My passion? To travel

My favourite place in Marseille ? The Pharo parc

My favourite provençal dish ? The Panisses

A must-do in Marseille ? Notre Dame de la Garde, always

I am Mattew, a Venezuelan journalist, of Caribbean pride, but of European heart, in love with the art and culture of the ‘old continent’. I left the ‘glamor’ of TV and the media to pursue my dream of knowing the world and show it to the rest of the people through tourism and social networks. Chasing an Italian woman through Europe, I arrived in Marseille and between the sea, the sun and the color of the sky, I stayed to tell stories about the oldest city in France. If I’m passionate about something, besides telling sports in the media, it’s sharing with people from all over the world, speaking in different languages and spreading my vision of the world as a tour guide. I am a citizen of the world; passionate, vehement.

My favourite place in Marseille ? Malmousque !

My favourite provençal dish ? The Sardines

A must-do in Marseille ? The Côte Bleu, Niolon

I am a Brazilian with many lives and many places traveled. I met Marseille 6 years ago and I was impressed by the cultural and geographical mix of the city. Thanks to the coincidences of life, I found in tourism a way to express myself and tell stories like in the theater. A way to connect with the history of the city and transmit it to its visitors. Thanks to my studies carried out in Brazil in 2011, I am a specialist in permaculture techniques used in self-sustaining communities and also in natural construction. Today, between home, nature and the road, what motivates me the most is to be in touch with other people.
