As other reviews have said - interesting and strangely beautiful but would have liked an english audio commentary. The french guide was clearly imparting lots of interesting info that wasn't on our English sheets. The train stops for a climb up the salt hill and at the exhibition/shop but a couple more little photo stops would have been good -... More

Nature never seems to amaze me. Salin d'Aigues-Mortes brings pink to a whole new level. It is somewhat mesmerizing. Even my teenagers enjoyed the tour. It was educational to learn about how the salt is mined from this region.

Made the drive to Salin d'Aigues-Mortes and it was an interesting site to see. Unfortunately they do not offer any English tours nor is there any audio translators available which was frustrating. Read the brochure in English so kind of figured out what was going on but an English option at a tourist area would have been nice. I had... More

We travelled through the Salins of Aigues Mortes. What strikes one is the scale of the pans. Reaching out for miles, towards the sea. Very impressive and strangely beautiful.

Well worth the time visiting this lovely town. A must is a walk on the ramparts and climbing the towers, the views are fantastic on a summers day.

We travelled as a family of 3, our daughter (12 going on 16) wasn't keen on the idea but admitted that she was pleasantly surprised! If you are looking for something different to do for a few hours then this would definitely fit the bill. The salt flats are stunning, the colours and sparkling of the salt really spectacular. The...

It has been a couple of years, since we took the little train around the salt lakes and we went yesterday with visitors. It is a delightful tour, especially right now, during the harvest. 2 remarks: 1) Very positive about the visit on top of one of the "camelles" salt mountains - great views of the area. 2) very disappointing,...

After 4 years holidaying, for many weeks, in the South of France, this goes down as the worst trip ever. My 15 year old daughter was looking forward to seeing the Flamingo's, well, if you had the Hubble telescope then you might have seen one out of the ten, in the distance. I still think that they were probably Seagulls.... More

The little blue train was such an excellent way of being introduced to the salt flats just outside of Aigues Mortes. Commentary was interesting and quite informative, the driver spoke slowly and clearly, so that those of us with French as a second language had more chance of understanding. It was disappointing that none of the fauna advertised and very... More

Salt exploitation in Aigues Mortes has existed even before the Romans. The visit is very interesting. A little train drives you around, I am not sure the comments can be heard in English (we are French speaking). But the written explanation in the museum are translated. The lanscape is beautiful with the pink water saturated with salt... There is a... More
