For a ride through the relatively narrow streets of Vieux Cannes (Le Suquet), board the train at a clearly designated site along La Croisette on its seaward side. Both tours depart every hour; each lasts between 30 and 40 minutes and each costs between 5€ and 6€ for adults, and between 2.50€ and 3€ for children under 10, depending on the tour. (The tour of the old town is the less expensive.) A combination ticket granting access on both of the two tours (which can be enjoyed on separate days, if you prefer) costs 8€ for adults and 5€ for children under 10. For details, call tel. 06-14-09-49-39.

You can get one from the terminal near where the cruise tenders arrive or from other side of the Casino Croisette. It is a great way to see the promenade with all its expensive hotels and some shops, visit the old town with its amazing views and not have to walk for miles to take it all in. Afterwards you...

It was fine for us because we were tired and hot and didn't want to do too much. The headphones really helped you to hear the descriptions.

( this is the only stop) - they have an audio tour, bring your own headphones. some trains have speakers and no headphones are needed and other trains have headphones but they are used. - about...

We had only one day to see the highlights of Cannes. The taxi driver dropped us at the Festival and we were looking at the walk of stars when we noticed this tour. For 10€ for 45 minutes it was a bargain. It took us through the streets of Cannes and up to a high point where we could get... More

We took this tour because of very good reviews on Trip Advisor and were disappointed in the tour. At best it is an average tour to take if you need to kill some time and would rather ride than walk.

Taking in all the sights and going up the the church at the top of the town. Excellent way to get an overview of the town. Then able to go back to explore on foot... More

We loved the Petit Train de Cannes tour we learned about here on Trip Advisor. Arriving from our cruise ship by tender, the train was just a few steps away. The tour was comfortable and well guided by head set recording. It was a wonderful overview to the city which we followed up by walking to sites we wanted to... More

Pleasant little trip around Cannes. Fairly basic, but provides some amazing views at the Palm Beach resort and from the top at Le Suquet.
