This train is a great way to get an overview of the city quickly. They have recorded information in different languages, it depends on which car you select to ride in on the little train. We also took this same type of train in Tours, France. It seems that many of the Tourist Offices have this Petit Train available nearby.

Angers was a 48hr max city. Any longer and we'd have fallen out of love with the place. We'd already done the castle and cathedral which were amazing and took Le Petit Train to orient ourselves further. I'm so glad we did as North of the river is a complete waste of time. There is little there to enjoy and... More

Hopped on at 3 pm. Each carriage has the tour guide narrated in their requested language. Love these little trips as you get to see parts of the town you would never find yourself.

I have mixed feelings about this one, and I've taken many petit trains in France so I can compare. The good: chances are you're in Angers for 2-3 days max, and 9 times out of 10 you are bound to stay in the city center with its castle, cathedral and etc. The train goes to the other side of the...

It's worth taking this trip as a quick way of getting orientated in Angers. It takes a route similar to the suggested walking route around the historic centre (as described on the street map available in most hotels), but it would take over two hours to do this on foot. The train has three cars, and on the day we... More

After a day of sightseeing, it was pleasant to sit down and be driven to places we hadn't been. The train leaves between the tourist office and the castle about every hour. The tour is in French, but they'll lend you a booklet in English. We were only in Angers a short time, so it was good to go across... More

What a great way to see the city and to learn its history! The train starts the tour just outside the castle opposite the Tourist Office and costs just 6.50€ and is a ride along tour with no stops for passengers to get off. Before we got on the train, we were given a folder in English which was full... More

This was a relaxing and informative way to gain an insight into the history of Angers - much the same as a hop-on-hop-off bus tour that most cities offer. We always try to take advantage of this type of tour to get a feel for the area before exploring alone. There are a few language options and I feel it... More

It was lovely to see such historic buildings and to find out when and why they were founded. It is a lovely comfy little train and the music was ver relaxing.
