Marseille by Rail
A melting pot of cultures, the old port of Marseille is a captivating maritime city. Crumbling ancient ruins among steadfast beautiful buildings of Southern France intertwine with clear blue waters; a bustling cosmopolitan port with afamous fish market.
Turquoise blue waters surrounds the inlets of this magnificent maritime city, with the warm Mediterranean breeze and bustling culture all around. Since its foundation in 600BC Marseille has attracted those from different cultures with Greek, Roman and North African influences. So much so, in fact, the narrow streets of Le Panier district resemble that of Italy or Corsica, the eastern markets of Noailles or Belsunce mirror that of an open air souk.
So scenic and so exciting, a city of beautiful buildings and diverse arts, whose cosmopolitan ambience echoes throughout.With the recent regeneration of the city, Marseille prides itself as ‘the attractive city in Provence’.
Experience its famous historical fish market in action or wander the new strips of Les Terrasses du Port for shopping or tapas and of course take a cruise on the Bay of Marseille.

196 of us went to perform as part of the Disney Performing Arts programme and they made it a fantastic experience. We had all sorts of obstacles thrown at us with snow and Eurostar strikes but nothing was too much trouble. 'No train to Disneyland???', 'no problem', coaches were organised to take us the rest of the way. Becky kept in touch the whole time checking we were taken care of. I highly recommend South Quay Travel, we have memories to last a lifetime.
I recently took my group on a wonderful tour of India's 'Golden Triangle' and then on up to Shimla in the Himalayas, arranged for us by South Quay Leisure and Travel. Everything had been taken care of from the moment we arrived. The transport, the transfers, the hotels, the guides, the porters, the admissions to all the wonderful places we visited, plus much much more besides. We had the experience of a lifetime and the company had left no stone unturned in ensuring the content and comfort of our tour.
Thank you so much for a fantastic Numeracy trip to Disneyland Paris. The experience was excellent for all our pupils. They all enjoyed themselves enormously. We will certainly be booking again with South Quay Travel.
We are just back from Lyon, and I wanted to say the organisation from your end was excellent, we both had a wonderful weekend.
South Quay Travel have organised a number of trips away for us. Disneyland Paris being a highlight for us this year, they looked at many options to get this within a price range I knew our group would pay, fantastic value for money. Well done guys.
A superb trip. The hotel was great both in location, quality of facilities and the meals provided. The pacific anchorages cruise was the best for many on a luxury catamaran yacht that went the 12 miles or so out in to the Pacific Ocean to make sure we got to see every ship! Well done with all the plans and arrangements for this trip which meant for all of us it was a trip of a lifetime in every sense.
