Not a bad way to keep cool but train route leaves a lot to be desired. Some points of interest but could have included much more. Speaker commentary was not always in sync with we were seeing at the time. We've done a few of these mini train trips around cities and this one was lacking in comparison.

Lovely driver....happy fellow users....very informative commentary (in English too if required) our 4 boys aged from 15- 2 enjoyed it a lot. Was raining when we used it and it also kept us dry 👌 Sit at the back for great pictures 😀

I've been on other Le Petit Trains which were better...this one is good for seeing both the medieval and roman parts of the city without walking. However, the train didn't stop or slow for picture taking and a lot of the medieval sites are not a part of the route. Much better to walk the self-guiding tours available from the... More

This train does not run during November through about April. So check your calendars. We have used petit trains in other cities in previous years and really enjoy the overview ride.

This is a 'must do' if you're ever in Perigueux. The train cost €7 for adults and, as we're big kids at heart, we loved every minute. We used the trip to give us an idea about where to visit the following day and for that reason alone it was excellent. The whole circuit took around 30 minutes and the... More

We had already spent an hour walking around when we got the train - what a good job we did - found much more to see and went back afterwards for another 2 hours of sightseeing. The tour is excellent and I believe presented in 3 languages, French, English and I believe also German. The driver asks your native language... More

I had the opportunity to hop on that train a few times for the past four years, of course it is great for kids, Perigueux is a lovely city so the sightseeing is awesome... Always quite impressive with the busy traffics and the narrow turns, but drivers always make it through... But watch out for the weather forecast, you could... More

It's possible to see so much more than trying to do all the walking. Then you can go back to see the bits you really like.

Good way to get an overview of the town - which is a long walk if you do it on foot. Talks you round the medieval part and the Roman remains.
