Saved us hours of walking and messing around and for 7 Euros was well worth it. I'm sure it missed some sights out but in 45 minutes it covered most. Highly recommended.

Having lived in Rouen nearly a decade ago, I went back for a visit and decided to go full-on tourist. This little train meets regularly outside the main cathedral in the city centre. If I recall correctly, it cost just 7 euros. Hop on and...More

They advertise a schedule, but their train is quite often broken and they just never showed up. I learned his at the Tourist Info, after waiting 20 useless minutes with 3 of my disabled guests. There was no update, that the train will not come,...More

This little train departs on the hour from 10:00am from the cathedral. Although it frequently leaves later if the train is not full enough. It is a good way to have a quick tour of the city however I didn't feel the commentary was as...More

The little train starts from the stone benches in front of the cathedral quite near to the tourist office. It only goes about once an hour and it gets quite full so try and get there early. I think you have to pay cash. The...More

This train at first looks a biit expensive ( € 9 p. p.) but once you realize how long the ride lasts it looks quite alright. After all, it gets you to (rather) distant places that would take you quite some time to cover by...More

We often enjoy the tourist train in a city. It is a good way to get an overview at a leisurely pace. This one was right in front of our hotel, so we jumped on it. I'd say it wasn't worth the price -- the...More

We often get the little train tours around French cities- it's a good way to get an overview of the place and learn a bit of the history. This was a good one. Informative and the driver was lovely too.
