We found this an excellent way to get an overview of Avignon as you squeeze through narrow streets and open vistas. The headphones narration was helpful as we gained ideas of where we wanted to visit more.

The train was very organized. You could select the language to be spoken so everyone understands. You get a brief history of the the building and sites with an overview of the city so you can choose the specific sites or areas you would like to return to. Great to get a chance to sit and ride and relax your... More

The train was very bumpy and the route was partly very badly chosen. The worst was the recorded guide that was at times in the wrong place and mostly babbled out too much information in a short time. Maybe ok if you want to take your under 5 for a ride.

What a hoot. This little train gives a nice city tour at a reasonable price. When I enjoyed Avignon, the train left every 15 minutes or so.

Found this little train by chance whilst sitting in a square, and it was excellent value at Euro7 per person. We had English commentary whilst we wound around the narrow cobble-stone streets, which seemed hardly wide enough to take the little bendy train. It was a most interesting ride and most enjoyable.

Bit bumpy on the cobbled, narrow streets, but the driver was obviously well used to the route! Lots to see, 40 minutes well spent.

I left Chicago arrived in Avignon 15 hours later. I heard about the train in guide books and it sounded like a great way to get a layout of the city. The train leaves near the main entrance to the Palace of the Popes. Maybe it was the long day and full sun that made this ride unenjoyable. The train... More

We decided on the spur of the moment to take this train ride, and whilst it was quite enjoyable seeing the back streets of Avignon and some interesting sites, there were a few down sides to the trip. It was difficult for elderly passengers to get on and off the train as there was only a very small step which... More

Perfect opportunity to learn about Avignon in a relaxing 45 minute tour. I sat on the outside seat and was able to take some good photos of areas that we saw , but were not necessarily going to visit.

We found that doing trips on these little tourist trains were the best way of becoming familiar with a city layout and a bit of leisurely fun. Sitting in the train and being led through winding streets we were taken to the Jewish quarter and also through all the pedestrian only areas with all the pretty shops. Highly recommended.
