Tourist office, website and board at the departure point said 11am first departure. 11.30 and no sign of train, no information on website, no answer on phone or response on email. Watched a full train's worth of people give up. Don't waste your time on...More

nice way to see the town. not as crowded as the big buses. We saw more this way than with a large bus that couldn't manuever the small streets of Nice.

A most enjoyable 35minute tour of the city, including some extraordinary narrow streets and tight turns - provides useful orientation to first time visitors like us. There is a very basic (multi lingual) commentary. A recommended way to let 'le petit train' take the strain...More

Like most popular attractions getting on the Petit Train can be time consuming and you have to wait for the scheduled arrival/departure. With 4 persons to a seat it's a bit tight and feels overcrowded. But that's how it is maximize revenue and minimize comfort...More
