Billy G. was excellent and we spent a very interesting and enjoyable afternoon with him exploring Marseille' history, culture and politics all through his very expert and well-informed architectural perspective. He also very helpfully gave us a very useful set of suggestions for other parts of Marseille, and restaurants, we might explore, and we used these ideas the following day. Very many thanks to him and to Context.
We did not expect Marseille to be very interesting nor very charming. Our docent showed us how wrong we were. She introduced us to the magic of Marseille, its ancient and modern history, its vibrancy, and its extraordinarily energetic and resilient people. Under her influence, we fell in love with Marseille and would gladly return in the future. The visit to the museum was a highlight.
