We went on the shorter trip to plaka and really enjoyed it. Lovely views from the train and we stopped for 5 minutes in plaka - it's a shame we could not stay longer in plaka though on this trip. Driver was very friendly and next time we will go on the longer mountain trip which we have been told is very good.

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!

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.

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

Train ran to the nearby town, easy to hop on and off! Was almost end of season , but we happen to catch it once or twice.
