We really enjoyed the trip last month. The train ride was fun, especially on the way back (because it wasn't so crowded), the gorge was just breathtaking in October, like an explosion of colors - rocks, trees, streams... We booked and bought our tickets online...More

The trip to Kalavrita with this particular train is not easily forgotten. The history behind it, the type of train, the developing scenery, the destination. Nothing to grumble about. No more details, go and enjoy.
