In May 2015, we took 17 agents to Marseille for two nights after winning a place in our agent incentive. We travelled down to Marseille in Standard Premier and were greeted by Cyrille from the Marseille tourist board, who looked after us on our trip.
Staying at the Mercure Centre near the harbour we took a tour of the Le Panier district, visited a traditional Marseillaise soap factory, and had cocktails on the terrace of the Novotel and Sofitel before dining at the harbour.
We spent the rest of our trip visiting a traditional fish market, taking a boat trip to the beautiful Calanques and a coach tour of the city with a visit to the basilica and MuCEM museum.
"I would like to thank you all so very much for the wonderful trip that we had to Marseille, it was amazing. I would travel there by Eurostar without hesitation rather than fly and have told clients this already. There is no hassle with airports, it is comfortable and in just a few hours you are in the sunshine and ooh la la. I absolutely loved Marseille and with the option of stopping in Lyon and Avignon, that is a huge bonus. I will be putting messages on our internal message board regularly to make sure that my colleagues are aware of how great this service is.
So thank you all so very much for the time, effort and cost that goes into making these trips so successful, if we didn’t visit, we wouldn’t know. French hospitality at it’s best." Gillian, Travel Counsellor
