As other reviewers have noted, the service has two distinct offerings and we took the shorter ‘city’ tour at €7 pp. Often such tours deliver a great introduction to a town to assist with your bearings. Leaving aside the operator desire to cram sardine like...More

This train can comfortably seat two people in a row. Three will work. But the squeeze 4 in each row making it uncomfortable for all and the two in the middle can see nothing. Save yourself the discomfort. Not worth it

Really enjoyed this tour. There were a few stops (see other reviews!). Great value for money, good commentary during the ride. Lovely town.

Le Petit train is overpriced. The selling point was 7 Euro for 50 minutes but end up paying 10 Euros for 90 minutes - no choice. Complete waste of time like previous contributor stated. Most of time spent travelling along the coast towards Tour de...More

They tell you it is 45 mins tour, what they don't say is 25 of that is parked up in two car parks. The sign clearly says it is 7Euro but they charge 10. A complete waste of time and money.

Cute little tour, nice to take, when you have only few hours for the town. Making 2 stops, just enough time to make couple of pictures.

You really do not learn more than a quick Google search will tell you. You get to know where the casino is though. Information about the city's history is not told (which is supposed to be really interesting). I am sure you can find better...More

The train runs two tours, a long one which has a few stops, and a shorter one which is non stop. The longer one is excellent, multi lingual commentary and a great way to get a feel for the place.

This is a very good way to get to grips with the lay of the land in Ajaccio and understand where all of the main attractions are. It starts and ends in the main market square and has a helpful commentary in English on the...More

Very popular way to get an overview of the city of Ajaccio. Tour takes you to see Napoleon monument and then along the coastal road to Des Iles Sanguinaire, giving you about 10 mins at each stop. Sadly the commentary was only in French and...More

You get your tickets on the train. Ships dock right in the town and all the interesting sights are nearby. Walk down the quay, turn left at the promenade and the train(s) can be found in a tree lined square no more than 100... More

It leaves from the town square on the port end. The square is also where the outdoor market is held so you can walk around the market while waiting for the train. Enjoy!
