We took this trip and would definitely recommend it. Of; course you have to prebook your tickets - as everyone advises - through the telephone (not by the internet unfortunately). We did not have any trouble with the booking procedure.
The scenery is definitely worthy of five stars (does not matter which side you sit) and the trip itself is also relaxing. One star is deducted though for the train itself. Although more modernised with A/C working properly, the seats are extremely small. We were 3 adults - of large size - and one child of three (you do not pay a ticket under age 4 and so you do not get a ticket) and it was extremely uncomfortable to seat and fully enjoy the journey (I am not refferin gto some bags we had). My knees were touching the opposite chair. A lot of people preffered to stand up the whole time of the journey (1 hour approximately) . Next time I will be thinking to book 2 tickets for myself only.
In all, this journey is a must, prepare yourself for some standing up though.
