35 minutes and €18 that I won't ever get back. The longer tours may be better, but this short trip was mainly along unappealing roads, industrial units, a grand view of the general hospital and a couple of beach views. Very disappointing.

I’m a sucker for land trains so we opted for the 80-minute tour ‘around’ town. Basically, the train takes a circuitous ride out of town over the bridge, up the hill & past the hospital. You then go on the main road to Elounda and stop at a high point to view Spinalonga in the distance. The return takes you back into the town centre past the fine memorial and down the main shopping area and past Kitroplatia Beach before getting back to the harbour. We couldn’t understand what the lady guide was saying as the PA’s sound quality was a bit dodgy. Not really a tour, more a trip out & back, but we enjoyed it. Tip: If you have a skinny bottom, take a cushion!

We booked two tickets to go up to the mountains to visit a village named 'Kritsa'. Lovely day with a breeze. The tickets were really reasonable too. We got on the Fun Train and had the best day. There was an English guide and also a Russian one. First of all, we stopped at a local, family run olive oil factory, where they told you the process of extracting to bottling. We were able to buy the oil there too, at very reasonable prices. Back on the train. We stopped at a 13th century church on the way. Inside it was covered in fresco's from that period. There was a small cafe there too, wonderful location. Back on the train to Kritsa, a lovely village with small shops and cafe's selling good Greek food and local beverages. We took the tour (no extra cost) to another tiny 13th century church, and a look around the house of Rodanthe, now known as Kritsotopoula, Girl of Kritsa is the heroine of Kritsa. She lived and fought disguised as a young man until the fateful battle against a combined Turk and Arab force in 1823, when her dreadful injuries led to the discovery he was in fact a she. After the tour we had a lovely Greek lunch and a walk around the village. Back to the Fun Train and back to Agios Nickolai, after being treated to the breathtaking scenery of Crete. We wholeheartedly recommend this activity, it was a wonderful day, and lasted around four hours.

Went on the trip to Kritsa with a stop at an olive oil factory and old church on the way.It was a very interesting trip and would also recommend the optional short walking tour in Kritsa. Some nice cafe's and restaurants in Kritsa for the stop there and there is always the local shopping. The guide on the trip is excellent with a wide range of knowledge on the area and a very friendly personality. Would recommend for something different to do

Went to Kritsa Village on this trip going via an olive oil farm. This in itself was enlightening, spent approximately 45 minutes learning all about olive oil production with a nice talk from owner. He explained about the different sorts of oil and when to pick the fruit etc., very interesting, brief overview. Next onto a very ancient church then into village. Was "kidnapped" by Irene whilst looking at her wares which were really beautiful. She eventually let me leave with a lovely tablecloth. Will always remember Irene when I use this. Next a lovely pizza and drink and a slow walk back to train. Just a lovely way to spend a day. Can highly recommend this trip. Wish we had gone on some of the other trips on offer with the trains around the place. Next time maybe. The guide was lovely and knowledgeable
