This little train offered an interesting cool ride through the scenic town of Menton on a very hot day. It drove along the beautiful promenade, then through parts of the old town usually not seen. An English narrative on headphones was included. Very informative. Afterwards...More

This was a really great way to see the town. Went to all the key areas and the English commentary was excellent, very informative. Highly recommend.

Great way to spend a lazy afternoon. Ideal on a hot day too. Commentary is interesting and our driver was friendly with a great sense of humour.

Great little landtrain that winds its way along the prom, up the hill, through the old town and back again! Really good value for a 50 min ride around Menton taking in some wonderful views. Interesting commentary via headphones.

My mother and I did this train tour in order to discover Menton after our lunch. Weather were very hot and we were lazy to run. The price isn't that expensive, but for what you get, it is a shame. You spend half of the...More
