Our tour program director called this the "choo choo". It was a very nice tour of the town and short enough to see the sights, all the beautiful hotels, etc and take pictures without having to walk around and get hot.

Fun train trip all around town. Relaxing and nice and breezy. Good enough to see around quickly and enjoy the ride

I wasn't sure about the little train and Cannes, but I enjoyed this little jaunt. I was able to work out where I was and where I needed to go. Taking over an hour the train took us to the key areas in Cannes complimented with an audio, which gave key little facts and stories. There is also one stop... More

Took the "little train" as part of an excursion from our cruise. Cannes itself is beautiful, the beaches, the scenery, etc.. If you enjoy taking a ride and listening to history, then it's for you. I did not enjoy the narrative on the ride, and although views were spectacular from the top, I would have been just as happy with... More

This little train takes you on all the key sights around Cannes. Along the beach front to the Palm Beach at one end and up the hill to the church (Le Suquet) and it's fab views. Take in the vast designer shops running in parallel to the beach front and learning about where the rich and famous hang out. A... More

This is an easy and quick way to see many parts of Cannes - good if it is very warm or you simply don't have that much time. The vocal guide is quite boring though and needs to be updated.

If you are running short of time, this is the best way to explore Cannes in an hours time. The audio commentary in 10 selective languages will give you the glance of Cannes in your own way.

The tour itself is very nice and worth to see, we had only few hours at Cannes so we thought better to take the grand tour with the petite train to watch the City and then walk to the interesting places. The descriptive voice is quite informative and the train really goes to interesting places, better to take your own... More

Visited Cannes on a cruise ship. Decided to catch this train for €10 each. Well worth the money. Commentary explaining what you are passing via headphones. Nice along the seafront and the views from the top were great. Driver of the train had to negotiate very tight corners!! Would do this trip again.
