Great experience! But do it in Summer because the colour pink depends on the sunlight. It was an easy and pleasant trip by the little train. There are a lot of products related to the salt. You will surely buy some. Some of the products...More

Good way to see how the famous local salt is produced from the sea. Pink salt unusual not found in other salt ares

What a delightful excursion this was. We took the little train, €10.20 each. We were lucky to get on a train that was relatively quiet, thanks to the lady at the booking window – all those we saw on the journey were packed. Good commentary...More

The trip with the train was very long but not boring. We climbed up a salt mountain, we had a perfect explanation for the salt and in the end we saw the famous pink flamingos. It's a good thing also for babies

Great visit where you learn how they make the salt. Takes 1h and 15min in a little train. Kids and adults enjoyed it as much. It includes walking up a salt mountain. Great views of Aigues-Mortes. Really glad we did it

We visited this as it was not far from our gite and the little train was very attractive to our younger son. The site is absolutely massive and the visit is certainly interesting but I thought the guide was a bit monotonous and was more...More

Took the small train around, worth the ride as it takes you to the salt marshes, a small museum and stops so you can climb a salt dune to take photos of Aigues-Mortes. Audio guide is an additional 2 euros, make sure you check it...More

10 euro for a trip with a train filled with 30-40 people for an 1hr15. A diesel train in a protected environment.... incredible. Yes, the view is nice, but a price of 3 euro is more reasonable. NOT advisable at actual high price
