Expensive, over-rated, not worth money or time.

Fun, interesting, and great views again!!! Loved this. We got off the train in the city and walked to the shops and market. Then we caught the free shuttle bus back to the island.

People had warned us about first impressions of Noumea - it is a working port and a shock to the system after the quietness of the previous islands. After a short bus ride out of the port terminal, we went on the Tchou Tchou train, for 90mins tour of the city....our guide, Dave, was very funny in his commentary. We also went into the WW11 Museum, which was very informative. We were, however, rather alarmed at the smog which was discharge from the nearby quarry to the port just as the ship was leaving....did not leave the best last memory of Noumea

Saw lots of the interesting spots including look outs, beaches, Naval base, Our Lady's Statue and grotto. The markets etc and town centre were great too.

Great way of seeing the place . Noumea is pretty much a boring place with not so friendly people .

Did the Chou Chou train with a group of 8 and loved it (although the morning tea was underwhelming and the instruction to take only 2 pieces of cake seemed a little harsh). Nice restaurants near the quay.

A good way to get an overview of the city. Our Guide was extremely informative and we had 3 stops where we got some decent photos as well as a refreshment stop.

Train picked us up at the ship & a great trip. The commentary was very good, points of interest with time to take photos was appreciated. Refreshment stop was very welcome.

Discovery Tchou Tchou Train tour was a novelty but rather uncomfortable ride in a "train" that travels by road. The train took us to some city sights and up to a monument. It lasted about 2 hours, not a great deal to get excited about, but a quick way to see some of the sights of Noumea.

Sit in the last carriage if you are hard of hearing. The noise from the prime mover is very loud especially on hills which make s the commentary useless.
