A rather bumpy ride through tiny cobbled streets around the city that looked impossible for a car to navigate yet alone a 4 car coupled "train". Very good value and an ideal way to see the key areas and sites to explore in more detail...More

After walking for days (in the summer heat), it was a treat to ride the little tour train up and down the medieval streets of Avignon.

Except to get your bearings around Avignon, this is a pointless tour. Although thr driver taking you down some precariously narrow streets is interesting, the information given is minimal. Don't waste your €£$

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

Again a great way to see parts of Avignon that you may miss when walking. Another headset giving you information which you can set in your own language.

The train is boarded outside the papal palace. 9 euros fir a 40 minute ride inside the walled city. On board there are headphones to hear the commentary in a variety of languages. It was a dead loss trying to listen to the English version...More
