Enjoyed the commentary enjoy route up to Cresta on the 4 hr trip which cost 20euros but don't sit at the front near the engine as it is SO noisy, especially as it struggles up the mountain roads.

We took the trip from Agios Nikolaos to the small mountain town of Kritsa on our second visit to Crete. Not cheap, but we had a fantastic time. Great travelling out of town into the real Cretan countryside with a comprehensive commentary on the points of interest and having a delicious meal of briam at the small restaurant opposite the...

This attraction is a blue train which tours Agios Nikolaos. I was amused by the commentary which spoke more about 5 star hotels than the history of the town.The commentary was difficult to hear because it was drowned by the noise of the town. I did discover the church which gives Agios Nikolaos it's name and the Zeus and Europe... More

We took the extended tour which gave a non stop commentary on hotels on the way up to a lookout site. Nothing on the way back, thankfully. Unfortunately nothing worthy of good comment. Overall, total waste of time and money.

Got the train from Aghios Nikolaos to Kritsa and it was quite enjoyable but photo opportunities few. I feel we could have gone to Kritsa independently on the local bus more cheaply and still not missed much from the train trip. Kritsa is fabulous.

Lovely little ride to Plaka. Great views of Spinalonga! Could do with a new sound system though as quite difficult to hear all the commentary!

The excursion that you did is from the village of Elounda not Agios Nikolaos. We are still happy however to hear that you enjoyed the excursion. More

We did a lot of walking and thought we'd covered the area around the town during the week, the train trip took us all over the area and we got to see things we might not have seen otherwise. When we go again we'll do the longer trip! We enjoyed it!

The excursion that you have reviewed does not leave from Agios Nikolaos but from the village of Elounda. Sorry that you did not enjoy your day with them in Elounda, but as I know the girls that work on this train I am pretty sure that it was explained to you in advance exactly where and what the train excursion...
