While the train journey was a good route and a fun way of seeing the coastline, there was no English commentary which made it difficult knowing what statue or building we were looking at. I had asked at the kiosk where we bought tickets and the man said there was English commentary. A major error.

I loved traveling on the little train around Ajaccio on the island of Corsica. The local beach was beautiful, and we passed many statues of Napoleon Bonaparte, including a huge statue of him with his four brothers at the top of the main street.

These little trains are all over France and this one is not much different than any of the others. A tour around the town stopping at Napoleon's statue for about 10 minutes.Since it was so cheap it is worth the time

When we first saw the Le Petit Train we scoffed. Then we saw the routing which not only went around the major sights in town but went along the coastal road to the Sanguines, which is too far to walk. We really enjoyed the train and the announcements were made in three languages, including English. We were given ample time... More

We were on a cruise and quite prepared to just see the main port area... Saw the train getting ready to leave and decided to go for a tour... We just expected to have a wee tour round the town and certainly didn't expect to see a whole lot more... But this takes you miles round the coast... Which is... More

After a wonderful few hours in the marketplace where local produce was shown and sold, I saw "the little train" waiting in the square.. It was only around ten Euros and filled up quickly. The passengers were a melange of French, English, Japanese and Italians. You traveled the length of the city and into the country where we saw the... More

This was our first visit to Ajaccio. We arrived on cruise ship and soon came across The Little Train in the market square. The ride cost only 10 Euro per person and the tour was about 1 hour long. Most if not all passengers on board were English and so the driver only played the English narration through the carriages.... More

Ajaccio is one of those places that's probably better seen on foot. There are tons of narrow streets to explore, and you won't find a lot of the hidden gems riding on Le Petit Train. That said, it's not a bad way to see the biggest tourist attractions, and it's really convenient when it's hot outside. I don't recall if... More

Paid for the extended tour this week as a way of seeing the sights in Ajaccio. We left nearly 15 minutes late as they tried to fill the train. The journey itself is fine and you travel quite a distance through the streets and out of town. The Sanguinaires Islands are a real highlight. However there was NO English translation... More
