I have not really been one for sitting on a 'noddy' train trundling around a town or city, but a member of our small group (two couples) wanted to give it a try so we did. The driver is friendly and accommodating, the trip lasted...More

Lovely driver....happy fellow users....very informative commentary (in English too if required) our 4 boys aged from 15- 2 enjoyed it a lot. Was raining when we used it and it also kept us dry 👌 Sit at the back for great pictures 😀

This train does not run during November through about April. So check your calendars. We have used petit trains in other cities in previous years and really enjoy the overview ride.

This is a 'must do' if you're ever in Perigueux. The train cost €7 for adults and, as we're big kids at heart, we loved every minute. We used the trip to give us an idea about where to visit the following day and for...More

I had the opportunity to hop on that train a few times for the past four years, of course it is great for kids, Perigueux is a lovely city so the sightseeing is awesome... Always quite impressive with the busy traffics and the narrow turns,...More

Good way to get an overview of the town - which is a long walk if you do it on foot. Talks you round the medieval part and the Roman remains.
