Very efficient and worth the money
Definately get the city pass. Worth every cent. Buses and metro are on time and take you all over the city. Certain buses get more crowded than others, but best way around. Also, visit the museums. I did not have time to hit them all, but the museum at Palais de Longchamp had some wonderful sculptures and paintings.
My trip time was limited but a good week here should allow plenty of time to see the sights in a leisurely mannar.
A must to have if you want to discover all the places in Marseille. Totally worth it!!
This was a great deal! It gives you access to everything you want to do and see, lots of parks, museums and cool activities! And the all the public transportation which was a HUGE lifesaver! Marseille is a big town!
Very easy to use and very friendly and helpful staff at the Tourist Info office. Thank you!

Definitely recommend this and will also look for this type of pass in other cities I plan to visit around Europe.
Marseille , wonderful city and have a good time.
Everything perfectly organised and clear, absolutely no problem.
Dana KYou get many discounts, including free admission to several attractions. Because there is so much that you can access with this pass, it helps if you will be in Marseille for at least a day. The longer you're there, the more savings you can enjoy with this pass. Even though we weren't there for a full day, we still enjoyed this pass. At the tourism office where we exchanged our vouchers for our passes the representative was very friendly and informative.
it kept us organized and the best thing is we had access to all the transportation during our stay. the if island and frioul island are.amazing. it will.save a lot of.time and money.
The pass was good to have. We were only there for one day/night so we didn't use it for the public transportation. The water was too choppy so they weren't doing the tours to the If Castle either, but we did use our pass to see the Notre Dame de la Garde which was neat.

Great value for your money.
Charles SThis is a must if you plan on seeing a bunch of museums. Each museum costs 4-10 euros, which really adds up. The tourist board where you redeem your voucher is right across the street from the port and easy to find. The pass does not include the main tour bus, however - just a discount.
We never used the passes. We found that walking and the Metro was much more fun.
One thing to be aware of, all of the museums and the castle are closed on Mondays.... which is theday we were there. Wish I' had known in advance.
memorial museum closed cantini closed for exhibition
I didn't go; it's too far. Instead I ended up in Lyon. It's quite a trip but it takes a few more days to explore all of that town.
We bought a 24 hour pass but on the day to validate our pass, it was a national holiday, Bastille Day and everything was either closed or closed early. As a result, we didn't use any of the transportation. Everything was within walking distance of what we wanted to see. If you are planning on spending more time there, then the pass allows free access to many museums so it might be worth it, according to your itinerary.

There wasn't enough time to make good use of the opportunities presented by the pass. Most of our time was spent having a wonderful lunch at the Old Port, and buying various soaps, for which Marseille is famous. We wanted to see the Roman docks museum, but did not succeed in finding it! A two -or-three day pass for an extended stay in Marseille would be used more.

Probably not good value when cruise ship shuttle from distant cruise ship terminal ran only 8.30-3.45. By the time we had located and visited tourist office near Vieux Port there were chaotic and lengthy queues for the 10.30 boat to Chateau D'If, the voucher had to be exchanged after one long queue for a boat ticket, then we just squeezed on the 11.05 boat. There was then no time to go ashore at the chateau and guarantee an early enough return boat to allow time to do anything else! So just did the 1 hour round trip without getting off the boat, then similarly did the little train trip up to the cathedral, again without getting off. This just allowed time for lunch by the Vieux port. Would have been cheaper just to buy the boat and little train tickets at normal rates. This ticket I would only recommend to those staying at least 9-5 pm in Marseille city itself.
Didn't get on as bus was full at one stop and blew by us empty at another stop we went to to try and get on. We were frustrated and never did use it.
