Except to get your bearings around Avignon, this is a pointless tour. Although thr driver taking you down some precariously narrow streets is interesting, the information given is minimal. Don't waste your €£$

This trip is superb for an hours tour around the very narrow winding streets of the old Avignon especially if you are travelling with children or the elderly. Well worth the 9 euros each to get your bearings for further exploration on foot. Very relaxing trip and definitely recommended

Even small kids who love trains were bored by this. The first five minutes, up the hill and into the gardens and back down the hill were interesting, the rest was just time filler and an excuse to charge €9 per adult for 45 minutes. Only one of the four audio guide audio jacks worked too which only increased the boredom. Would not recommend.

Again a great way to see parts of Avignon that you may miss when walking. Another headset giving you information which you can set in your own language.

The train is boarded outside the papal palace. 9 euros fir a 40 minute ride inside the walled city. On board there are headphones to hear the commentary in a variety of languages. It was a dead loss trying to listen to the English version as blaring out over it is the French version coming over the train's loudspeaker system.
