This is a delightful journey on a steam train through the hillsides of the region. It is a quaint experience from a bygone age and gives good views of local countryside. There is a stop half way for refreshments but don't wear "your favourite top" because clothes can get burnt specs from ash in the steam from the train.

Open coaches and fantastic views along the way, and complete with tunnels, so don't expect to come away not smelling of smoke! Some amusing banter from the train conductor (I assume that's what you'd call him) as well. If you're hungry though, get food before you go, as the café sandwiches leave something to be desired. But a great day out.

Lovely trip with the kids - plenty of space and for open carriages allowed, great views for the adults and the kids loved the trip especially the tunnels! Friendly staff and pretty station and the guide was a very cheery fellow on the train? Sit at the back of the train ( actually front for the outbound trip) for the best camera views along the line of the track and keeps you out of the way of the diesel fumes on the way back.

This is amazing...at just under 9€ per person. The journey lasts around an hour. The ride is very comfy & the sights are amazing.

There is the opportunity to buy gifts on the way back, they are slightly overpriced but the money goes to help the attraction!

Staff are very friendly. It does get hot because of the steam. The best part is going through the tunnels.

Worth a drive just for this!! I loved it!

Pleasant afternoon trip from Martel to St Denis. Views over countryside were lovely as was riding on a steam locomotive. Clearly a fairly new enterprise that us in its growth phase; let's hope that development plans include tourist commentary in English. Very well set up, organised and suitable forvgrandson's first train journey
