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.

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
