Good way for an overview on a hot day

It was really hot on the day we visited and an orientation tour without walking and in the shade was just the ticket. Not especially cheap, but a good investment - go round once... read more

But you can take a 30 minute tour in a two person carriage riden by a cyclist - this cost 25 Euro and was a great ah to see the town - highly recommended

Arles is a great city - lots to see and lots of tucked away alleys with shops, restaurants, and sites. Much of the historic area near the amphitheatre is pedestrian traffic only, and there is alot of ground to cover; this is why we enjoyed the petit train so much. The train allowed us to get a great overview of... More

Yes, it is touristy and almost every town in France has one. But, it was fun and gave us a good idea of what was loacted where. The driver was great, saying hello to everyone he knew and truely enjoying his work. All aboard!

This was a great way to get an overview of Arles and to kill some time before the bullgames. Also a nice chance to rest your weary feet while still seeing some sights. It was a tad expensive, though.

This is a great first outing in Arles. If you want an overview of the town, multi-lingual information and a hospitable greeting from the courteous driver, I would highly recommend this as your first stop.

Great way to explore Arles before becoming lost within the charming intricacy of its streets. Takes in all the best sites and covers much ground at good value in 45 minutes, with headphones provided in all main languages. Arles equivalent of the open top bus.

You can walk easy around Arles, but when it starts to rain it is nice to see things while having a cover. So we took the petit train. The ride took about 45 minutes and covered almost all of the attractions in Arles with a brief discription of each. We decided on the places we wanted to explore further and... More
