Trip was €8 per person, I do not feel this was excessive. Trip was along coast road and also took in some sights just out of town. We got what we expected and would recommend for a leisurely 45 minute. Feel some of the previous...More

You can’t fault the interest and beauty of Corfu Town and its surroundings. It’s a very bumpy ride and the commentary is hopeless. I recommend if you want to do this trip which goes through mostly urban areas that you donut with a sight seeing...More

For €8 a head you get about 35-40 mins ride looping out of the town and picking up (briefly) some sights you may feel were too far to walk. The commentary is canned and in multiple languages including English. Not exactly a must for, but...More

Worst €8 I spent on my whole holiday! What a rubbish tour! Went to see some random buildings off the beaten track with no significance at all. The commentary was pretty much inaudible. The driver was more concerned about stopping off to put his rubbish...More

We sat behind the staff member who took our money, together with her friend who seems to make the journey each time. First of all the commentary was almost inaudible without the two girls chatting all the time, either to each other or on their...More

Only four of us boarded the train and we were told we would have to come back in an hour as the minimum number for the ride was five. This we understood but the person selling the tickets wasn't particularly polite. The ride was pretty...More

This little train runs once an hour, so seeing as it was quite full already 20 mins before it was due to go we sat in it and waited. It was good to sit down and be shaded and the children were excited about the...More

Don't do it! It is awful, and you won't feel as if you have even done any sightseeing. Catch the Corfu sightseeing bus instead. I wish we had!
