Noumea Discovery Tchou Tchou Train Excursion Reviews

All aboard! See the highlights of Noumea via the yellow Tchou Tchou Train, an open-air motorized vehicle that tours the peninsula on which this sophisticated city sits.
Went around the town.
Went around the town. Went to more places than I had visited when I worked in Noumea for 6 weeks! Arrived back with enough time to go out eating and drinking

This was ok. Our guide was lovely and informative. In the middle of the 2 hour tour there was a 20 min break to go to a pretty nondescript hotel lobby for a toilet break and a piece of cake which seemed a bit of a waste of time to me. We paid $60 - but apparently could do this for $30.... were ok with this though as it was super easy doing it through the ship. Read Less

Have done this tour before. On the positive we stopped for drink and cookie which we did not do on the last tour. However, the commentator was no where near as informative as the previously choo choo ride.

The train was good and open air. Good look outs. Quick to hop on and off. $230 for 4 people for 1.5 hours a bit expensive. Good tour guide and friendly. Beautiful views.

The Tchou Tchou Train was a good way to see the sights quickly. We had a good host and we stopped for a few photo calls and a cup of juice. The commentary was interesting and they dropped me off in town so I could explore on my own.

Great way to do a reccy and see Noumea - expensive through ship try to book direct for half the price. If you sit at front can be hard to hear over engine noise. If you sit in rear there can be some sway and wobble

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 Read Less
