Did this tour with a friend. Sound system was not in sync with the locations. The ride itself is very rough and not comfortable.

While this is not a knock-your-socks-off tour, it is a great way to see the sites in the city center. The last car of the train has headsets, so if you do not speak French, you want to sit there. There were a few times...More
