“Dull”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I've seen these trains trundle aorund Lux and other cities. inlime othe cities the voiceover is weak at best and after the whole expensive experience felt rather deflated.

“Little train trip”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had some free time before returning to the airport so went on this little train. It was great fun, though not recommended for anyone with back problems. Hairpin bends and cobblestones in the ancient city, but an excellent commentary, very suitable for all ages groups but especially children

“A good value tour”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The Petrusse Express is a bright green road train that meanders along the Petrusse river valley taking in a number of great sites.
I loved the Grund area which is at the base of the valley alongside the river.
The tour only cost around €9 each and lasted around an hour.
Definitely worth a go.

“Different to the usual city tour”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

At €9 per adult, a ticket may seem expensive but combine it with the Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off tour to get a discount and you will see most of Luxembourg City as the two tours cover different routes. The commentary on the train is not the usual “on the left you will see…” it is more of a theatrical representation of the history of the Grund and Old City Centre areas and quite entertaining for older children and adults (unfortunately the younger children in our compartment became bored very quickly). Seats are numbered and must be pre-booked at the kiosk where you purchase the tickets so I recommend you take this tour before the Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus.

“You're better off walking or taking a bus”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

My experience aboard the Petrusse Express was most unpleasant. It broke down, when it did work, the driving fluctuated b/w speed racer and the little engine that could, and the audio soundtrack was a weird mix of mermaid story and music. I was hoping to learn a bit about the city but ending up ditching the headsets after 10 minutes as did all the other guests in my car who represented multiple countries.
