We took the little train as we had only a short time in Nice and it was an incredibly hot day. There is a useful audio guide to give information about the city. The train took us up the hill & gave us a short stop to take photos. We enjoyed the trip.

Good price for the tour. Great listening to the audio while enjoying the views. Nice stop at the castle with time to enjoy the surroundings. Very enjoyable.

I went on this little train on my first day in Nice, to get a rough idea of what was around. I was pleasantly surprised with the audio equipment and the commentary was excellent. It went all around the old town, starting on the promenade. The best part was definitely when the train goes up the hill and you can... More

Very nice historical tour (audio narration is available in multiple languages, accompanied by classical music) riding around in a small "train" that rides on wheels, not rails. Tour takes you around sights of Nice including Promenade des Anglais and old town, then cruises up the steep hill to a lookout at the site of the old castle (long destroyed) and... More

Might be a lazy way of seing the city but a great way to get to the hill spacially of you have a small kid with you. 10 min stop on top of the hill is enough time to take a shot of Nice and to strech your legs.

To avoid climbing, take this train to get a glimpse of the old town and go up to see the views from the top of the hill. Train stops 10 minutes up there.

Took us all around the city - great way to get a sense of all of it. Stopped at Castle Hill for 10 minutes for picture taking; otherwise drove too fast to take them as we went. It lasted about 45 minutes and was very pleasant. The headsets worked great and you choose your language.

We had a guided tour of Nice to start with and saw beautiful boulevards and fountains and then boarded the tourist train for a scenic drive around Nice. The train is great fun and takes you right up into the highest parts of Nice where the views are stunning. This trip is ideal as it was a very warm day... More

These little trains are always a good way to look around relatively quickly and cheaply and decide what you might want to go and see later. Enjoyed our trip.

It is what it is. Whilst I am uninspired by it, it does allow you to see the main highlights of Nice without trudging around. We identified places that we were interested in and gave us a little more focus to our forays around teh city.
