“Happy Train”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The happy train looks like the kids train in fun lands. It takes you through some sites in Plaka and the neighbourhood. It is cheap though (5 Euros). I took it for a tour that ended at the Acropolys where we got up on foot. When it was time to get back, it was raining and no trains were operating so we had a hard time getting to the hotel back.

“Athens happy train, the best value and way to see the sights”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

If you are on a cruise, walk the 20 mins to the station along the sea front from Priaeus port
Pay the 80 cents train fare to monastiraki station, get off up the stairs and look for the happy train, its 5 Euro each for adults slightly cheaper for kids and its the best way to see the sights
Dont confuse it with the Priaeus Happy Train as this dosnt take you the the main things you would want to see, although its good too

“Do not spend money for this programme”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We took this train in June 29th, you pay and sit in the "train" -please note that this is not a train like a tram.It will take you all over the main attractions, BUT NO EXPLANATION about the spots. The assistant -a lady talk some thing over her phone and either clear or lound enough, and they are not friedly at all
