Both tours depart every hour; each lasts between 30 and 40 minutes and each costs between 5€ and 6€ for adults, and between 2.50€ and 3€ for children under 10, depending on the tour.

Visited from cruise ship - great way to see Cannes without getting tired walking! Good commentary to learn something about the town too. Well with €10.

Sadly, all. Can think is 'I will never get those 2 hours back!' It is by far the worst tour I have ever had. Don't think, run from this tour. The Bad- the train literally just follows the shore line except for a brief stop on a hill where they literally give you 10 minutes to take pictures. The speaking... More

Having arrived in Cannes on a cruise ship we had nothing planned. The Petit Train was near to the cruise terminal & we thought what the heck let's give it a go. The tour lasted an hour & was very informative & as we were there during The Film Festival a feel of mixing with the stars. These type of... More

A very good way to visit all main attractions and feel Cannes. There are 2 routes for 7 euros and a big one for 10, that combines those 2. For 1 hour you will have a nice excursion with a stop at the medieval town of Le Suquet with nice views of the city. The tour has translations in 8... More

Combined History and Croisette tour cost €10 per person, and quiet honestly is overpriced. The Croisette tour takes you along the water line to the Palm Beach Casino and gives you a commentary along the way, however there is more music playing to fill in time, then what there is of presenting facts. The train the doubles back on itself... More

We arrived in Cannes on a very rainy day in May... we hopped on to this train from La Croisette (close to the main film festival area). It is a good way to see Cannes in an hour. It helped us to get oriented to the city.. and then we explored on feet, once the rain stopped.

We always like to use Le Petit Train to get an overview of a town when possible. At 10 euros/pp we found Cannes' hour tour to be money well spent. It covered all the important sites of Cannes which, for seniors anyway, are a little spread out. We also liked that, at least in the off months, it made a... More

Le petit Train which is actually an open sided tram is good for an overview of Cannes. The one hour tour meets you at the cruise port and takes you around the area. There are headsets which provide the "tour" in approximately 8 languages (Eng., Fr, Span, Germ., Ital., and I don't recall the rest). It is difficult to take... More

It was raining quite heavily on our day in Cannes. We jumped on this and paid 10 EUR each. It took us around the town, past the shops and up the hill to the old church.Had earphones to tell us what we we were seeing. Took about 60 mins.
