Yes, its an affordable 7 EUR trip but the experience was boring beyond belief. Imagine getting onto a small tram, putting on a pair of sweaty headphones (its warm and the headphones are used multiple times throughout the day so you can imagine!) and then listening to the dullest voice in the world tell you, "On your left is the...

Good way to see the sights & get some history of Avignon. Also good for the less able as to walk the town is difficult in the hot months

We waited 25 minutes to take the last train of the day. While waiting the driver sat at a nearby table with a beverage and a smoke. Ok to take a break, but then...the driver decided he was done and told us to come back in the morning. We were leaving early the next day, so missed seeing Avignon by... More

Over priced and boring. Do the Avignon walking food tour instead. Personal guide who is very knowledgeable about Avignon's history and takes you off the beaten track for a more authentic look at Avignon from a local perspective.

We have used these trains in several locations and found them to be a great way to see the sights. However on this occasion we had some major issues. This is the first time we had to buy tickets 'on the train'. Elsewhere the tickets were purchased from a ticket office which meant that there was no problem getting a... More

Very good starting point for exploring Avignon. For 7 euros you can have a very good look of Avignon, especially its cobbled and narrow streets. It is the bumpy ride, but fun and informative. Audio guide is quite good and there are lot of opportunities to take some nice photos along the way.

Nice 30-40 minute tour with audio of the town. Bumpy ride, hard seats but a good respite from the 93 degree heat walking around today.

It is a very appealing looking train (which really is a bus/cart in the design of a train). It takes you all around the interests of the area with an audio headset to guide you (in various languages). The suspension is only good if you have some padding as the seats are hard and the streets of Avignon are mainly... More

A nice introduction to the city and somewhere cooler on a hot afternoon. We found the audio guide perfectly audible, unlike other reviewers. The train does get pretty bouncy on the cobbled streets. If you find sitting uncomfortable you will want a cushion as the seats are pretty hard. BE CAREFUL. When the train rounds the jardin des doms (soon... More

For a cheap tour with an onboard audio guide in 8 languages. It's the thing to do when arriving in Avignon to help you get your bearings and understand what is around Avignon. You don't need to pre purchase tickets and tours run about every 30 minutes (there was a black board with times near the Palais when we were... More
