At just 8 euros per person, this is a really cost effective tour. The small train is able to get through the narrow streets of Avignon, but the ride is a bit bumpy at times! Multi-lingual headsets provide the commentary for the roughly 45 minute journey. Trains start and end outside the Palais des Papes.

This train (really a tractor unit and 3 trailers) is a great way to get an overview of the city. It starts off near the Popes' Palace (Palais du Pape) and tours for 45 minutes through some quite narrow and interesting streets. There is a multi-language headset available for the running commentary, and we were able to spot a couple... More

How they got the trailing cars to follow the drive unit into some of the narrow alleyways, I'm still not sure. The commentary is good, and the headsets work well, unless too much sideways force is applied to the outlet jack. The tour is non-stop apart from any holdups, for which they waited, so we were away from the Palais... More

The little tourist train provides one with a quick overview of the walled part of the city and features pretty much all the highlights. Everyone gets a head phone plugged into the seat in front of you that can be adjusted for many languages. The explanations are brief and to the point. Given the cobble stone terrain the ride is...

There are 2 trains. Wait for the newer one. You're given a set of headphones in your language. Interesting commentary. Tour takes 45 minutes. 8 Euros each. Worth it. Starts and finishes at Palais des Papes. It doesn't stop anywhere. Take water. Great to get your bearings and plan your visit. Skilled drivers - the lanes are very narrow.

This is a great way to be introduced to Avignon. Reasonably priced and just the right amount of time. You go down small alleys that you may not venture down otherwise. These revealed some hidden gems. The commentary was excellent.
