Yes the views are very good. ... but the out and back train ride is nothing special. Most of the ride there is no view at all, just steep embankments or tunnels. Also quite expensive at 10€ 50 cents per adult. There are several tunnels........More

Amazing Scenery! The publicity photos don’t do it justice: You are taken along the side of a rock face, in & out of tunnels. The 11€ fare represents real value for money. You need to check-out their web-site, if, like me, you wish to go...More

This is a must for train enthusiasts and non - enthusiasts alike; old and young. A 8km stretch of track that clings to the cliffs above the Dordogne valley and gives the most incredible views. High days and holidays the open, seated carriages (dating back...More

Run by volunteers this is a lovely trip lasting about 1 hour. You are seated on old 1936 wooden benches in around 10 carriages to enjoy a trip through a few old stone tunnels along the side of a cliff to marvel at the distant...More
