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. (The tour of the old town is the less expensive.) A combination ticket granting access on both of the two tours (which can be enjoyed on separate days, if you prefer) costs 8€ for adults and 5€ for children under 10.

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.

Wow, what a great little train. We took the 1 hour trip. In and out of little streets, along the sea front and Marina ( some amazing boats moored here $$$) and up to the top of the hill to see the old church and the amazing views. Some info on where Movies were filmed, the hotels Stars stay at... More

After walking the Cannes Promenade to view the yachts and outstanding hotels and shops we took the “Cannes Cinema Tour” mini train (EU10 each for the Big Tour). There are three separate routes, History Tour and Croisette Tour at 35 minutes each and the Big Tour lasting 60 minutes. This was a very worthwhile tour lasting about an hour and... More

For the first time in my life I got used to difficulties in moving due to some problems at my sciatic nerve. I was used to walk a lot together with my wife and a Traveller Guide. This time, no way! So, the choice of the little train was somehow forced. Nonetheless, I could appreciate the good introduction and explanations... More

This is a good way to see some highlights of Cannes, and for just €10 per person (capacity is about 50 passengers). In just under an hour, the exclusive shopping area, the extensive condominium district, and the impressive old city are traveled at the pace of slow traffic. Our only complaint (and the main reason for a mediocre rating) is... More

As we were touring French Riviera, we took advantage of little train to navigate through Cannes. Sit back, put earpieces, choose language (english) and enjoy beautiful Cannes while listening interesting audio guide. It is inexpensive, 10 Euros per person, it will take you around Cannes, where otherwise wouldn't be able to go, either by bus as streets are very narrow,... More

We always use the open top buses where they run to get a quick feel for a new city, but had not previously tried the small trains until we did in Cannes. The big advantage that they have is they can get into narrow streets and around tight corners that the buses can't--consequently you can get quite an intimate view... More
