“Not so happy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

Ok but nothing special. Waited a little while for the train which was very busy. Great for the kids in your party.

“Good fun”

Great little trip. Not terribly exciting, but you can just sit and take everything in. Glad we gave it a try.

“very enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

If you are visiting Elounda make sure you take a trip on the Happy Train which can be found near to the main municipal beach. The train visits Plaka where their are some fantastic views of Spinalonga - the island of tears. Ziggy, your host, has an expert knowledge of Elounda. Look for the red cap he always wears. Can`t wait to make the journey again next year.

Only 3 of us on train......was nice way to spend 40 minutes and the guide was a fountain of knowledge! Mainly about local gossip and a little about the area! Very funny tho!

“A lazy way to appreciate the trip between Elounda and Plaka”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Much the same as many of these sort of rides and at €12 return is expensive, the local bus is €1.70 each way and is air conditioned as well though there are only 4 busses a day from Elounda and back. If you are up to the walk it is a nice walk 4.5Km with plenty of bars to greet you at the end. They had planned a 3 hr trip up into the local mountain, but currently local politics has scuppered it. The are trying to sort it for the end of July. At €15 return trip sounds good, we fancied it but another time maybe.
