The best way to have a nice view of la Rochelle. The cabins are new and can't turn anymore. It's a great family ride, you can make great photos from the top. The staff is very helpful if you have difficulties to hop on and...More

Site well chosen, gives a good overview of the city. Personnel is friendly. The rest: well it's a big ferris wheel. Cabins (Open) can be turned by yourself.

Formed in line with my wife and teenagers and of course you dont know the price until you are face to face with the cashier. 12 euros each, 48 euros. So of course I pay, never wanting to look cheap with the family but this...More

Nice views over la rochelle, quite expensive for what it is. Worth doing if you are there for tourism.

At only four euros this wasn't an expensive treat. We had three turns with lovely views over town and harbour.

Tame novelty transport - my favourite! It's slowish, not too dramatic, has an interesting view over the old port and the trams with their solar panels on the roofs, doesn't cost too much.

We loved the wheel, great place to be on a sunny afternoon, no way would we have understood the layout of the city without this experience and the view was lovely! We were so excited I was ready to go again :0)

A big wheel is a big wheel ... not La Rochelle's fault that it doesn't have a striking skyline hence no stunning views while "up". A good view across the town nonetheless. Not bad for €4 if you're nearby but don't travel miles just for...More
