“Fun!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a fun and relaxing trip which is a great way to see real Crete! For 17 euros each you get 3 hours on a road train which takes you up into the hills. The views from the hills are spectacular and the little villages visited were very quaint. The food was good and the Raki even better. A special thanks to Ziggy, our guide, for making my 40th birthday a day to remember!

“Another Must.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A chance to see much of this part of the island that you would miss plus excellent information from the guide. Lunch at the top of the hills in the small village was tasty, plentiful and ridiculously cheap.

“Right into the mountains”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Apart from the fact we couldn't make out half of what was said, the atmosphere on board was brilliant and it travelled quite far for a wee train
