“Good overview”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Wherever I go if they have one of these trains I make it one of my first things to do because it quickly gives me an overview. The one in Colmar is 35 mins and the headphone acoustics were excellent.

“Slow down!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Attractive, vintage-look.

Great for an overview/introduction to Colmar (the brochure/map was helpful), but I thought that the train was going too fast and the commentaries of the places of interest were coming in rapid succession, such that one could not quite fully absorb the commentary and at the same time appreciate the exterior of the buildings (design, colour, and other architectural details).

It was too "touch-and-go" for my liking.

“Cute for a quick view if the city and very inexpensive”

It was a quick little trip, but we past the same things a couple times and the driver seemed less than enthused.
