Sightseeing on foot is not an option for us and therefore, we boarded Le Petit Train. We used some of the knowledge we had gathered during the tour to explore things later on in more depth by car. The commentary is clear and to the...More

The little train allowed us to see things we would have missed otherwise. For 7€ you get a 40-minute ride around the Medieval part of town. Not all that exciting, but fun. Great for kids who ride for a discount. Recommended.

As a tourist visiting a town for the first time, the Petit Train is a great way to discover the primary sites worth visiting. You can then return on foot to spend more time at the places you prefer.

We only found this by accident. It was a great way of seeing Perpignan. The commentary was in French and English. The tour started from near the old city gate.

Perpignan is a biggish city and the little train helps you see all the sites as well as a few you would probably miss. When you get on they ask you what language you are and then play that tape so you know what's happening....More

We saw the little train on our first day in the city as we were out for a walk to look around. It was really good value and lasted around 45 minutes which was perfect for our little girl (2 1/2 years old) as she...More
