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...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

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...More

The train tour was an excellent way to get an up close tour of the salt flats. This is not the little train that runs through the town. You have to drive or walk (about 20 min) to get to the flats then you take...More

Situated right outside Aigues-Mortes, this "little train" tour was interesting, but could have been covered in half the time. The cost was 10€ per person which isn't much, but with a group of us it seemed a lot of money for the 1 1/4 hrs....More

This 1 1/4 hour tour by tram into the salt-works proved to be both amazing and educational. English speakers are given a print-out to read because the tour was in French. The little tram/train took us through the marsh area outside of the walled city...More

It is a very cute little medieval fortification. In fact it's bigger than expected, with very well preserved townwalls, which you can go around by foot. Small streets with little shops, nice square with a monument and a lot of restaurants create very pleasant mediterranean...More

Amazing discovery! Along the remparts, on the opposite side looking at the see (Boulevard Interieur) a fish seller and cooker named Coquillage des Remparts. Really suggested! A mixed dish or a very good muscles dish. Really cheap as well.

Interesting and informative, information is giving in French but you are given a card in English. Details given about the history of the area and a gift shop is available (not cheap) good for historians and wild life interest with flamingos. Dress for the weather...More

This was enjoyable tour, focused primarily on the winning of salt from the marshes around Aigues-Mortes. The guide also provided a good overview of the natural history of the area. The mini-train, as many reviewers have noted, is open to the elements (in our case,...More
