“Great intro to city”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Great way to see Avignon in a short time. Make sure if you are listening on the head phones you are turned up loud to hear over the French version on loud speaker. Incredible how it goes through very narrow streets. Pauses for photos.

“So-so”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Normally I enjoy a tour of a new city when I first arrive, but I after this tour, I felt like I could have saved the 7 euros and wouldn't have missed anything. It wasn't terrible, just not very interesting.

“Good way to get your bearings”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Well worth it at the start of a visit to Avignon and then we had a much better idea of what we wanted to go back to.

“Fun and informative trip!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Most small trains have individual headphones with multiple languages. Ours just had a PA announcement that narrated in several languages, possibly cued by the driver. Ours was French, English, and German. The train whirs you through the old city, up and down streets, missing many nooks, yet offering a very pleasant and relaxed view of the town that gives your feet a nice rest while informing you of the town's history. It would be better if the whole tour were in each viewer's language, but even for this return traveler, it was fun and easy.

“Little train in the walled City”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This actually takes you around areas you may not walk to, so you see more of the city that if on foot. It was not a bad way to go, especially if you are tired or not able to walk around.
