The sound system on the train was so bad we couldn't hear anything at all so learned little of the city. Although you do get to see parts of Beaune you may not visit , it is a small town and can be covered in a day by just a gentle walk around.

We had covered the historic city center covered by the tour while wandering around in the morning. The tour added a brief hop to see the grape plots, but if you don't have problems walking, then it is of little value. While a recorded commentary was offered in English (we had to wait for the 15:30 tour for that), the... More

This was not worth the time for us because we had already walked the town and seen the sights that were pointed out in the recording. We were hoping for more history and background information. It would be great for anyone not able to cover the area on foot. A nice segment took us on a quick loop through the... More

It was a cold and damp day, the day we rode the little train. It was a good way to see the city and stay out of the bad weather. There is a loud speaker in English, but the commentary was a little on the short side. Still a nice way to familiarize yourself with the city. You could then... More

A very easy way to get knowledge and enjoy the sites of historic Beaune. The tour takes about 45 minutes and go once an hour, starting at the Hotel Dieu. It takes you around the city and even out into a part of the vines outside the ramparts.There are carriages with a pre recorded commentary in whatever language you choose.... More

We were put in the back row of one of the English speaking carriages and the seat is to be avoided as its much narrower than the rest of the seats and so very uncomfortable. It also meant that if you felt travel sick, it would not suit you as the train swayed quite a bit and was rough over... More

For a nominal fee of 5Euros, you ride the train to get a glimpse of the city and get oriented. Is the best way to start your visit in any city where is offered.

We had gone on several little tourist trains around France, and this was the best. They had the commentary, in your language, 'piped' into the carriage you were in, which was fantastic. Our carriage was English and German. It was a 45 minute tour and even went outside the walls into the grape fields...good value for money and lots of... More

The little carriages pulled along the roads were full - rather cramped room for the knees if you are tall. The 45 minute trip is a bit repetitive, criss-crossing the narrow streets of central Beaune, but one did get a good idea of the layout. Our favourite bit was when we travelled to the outskirts, to a road edging the... More
