Excellent way to tour the historic streets of Vannes with a multilingual commentary to fill in all the gaps in understanding the history of the ancient city. The ride takes around 35 minutes, and covered more ground than you could in at least 2 hours...More

Dear little white train with English translation meant that we could escape from the unusual extreme heat of the day. It took 35 minutes but bumped us merrily over the cobbles and we learnt some history of the city en route.

Great way to see the city. Fun for children. Very reasonably price. Great way to discover areas of interest that you can then return to. Driver and staff were also very helpful.

Reasonably priced and relatively quick (35mins), this is a good way to get a feel for the layout of the historic centre of Vannes and learn a little of the history. You would probably discover more with a decent guidebook of you're willing to do...More

The old town of Vannes is best visited on Le petit train de Vannes. An english guide is provided by headphones. The only shame is that it is not hop on and off.

The trip is approximately 30 minutes duration, and represents a good and interesting way to see the town, with informative commentary, before exploring the parts that interest you the most on foot.
