This trip is superb for an hours tour around the very narrow winding streets of the old Avignon especially if you are travelling with children or the elderly. Well worth the 9 euros each to get your bearings for further exploration on foot. Very relaxing...More

Even small kids who love trains were bored by this. The first five minutes, up the hill and into the gardens and back down the hill were interesting, the rest was just time filler and an excuse to charge €9 per adult for 45 minutes....More

The Petite train was a very helpful guide after our arrival in Avignon. A pleasant ride that gave us an overview of the entire town with views of all important sights. Inexpensive.
