This toy train was more comfortable than others we've been on. The trip is about 40mins and costs 12F each. As it happens we had found most of the route on foot but it's a fun way of getting around. It goes past the Dying...More

The tour is a scant 40 minutes and you see very little. There are earbuds provided but the volume is so low that one can barely hear. A native of the city actually turned around in his seat and apologized for the quality of the...More
