We needed to travel from Elounda Village & Spa Hotel to Elounda town and were not sure of the distance and difficulty involved. The Happy Train matched our needs and was an enjoyable and safe cost-effective experience.

Sorry, only just seen this, hope you had a good trip, we enjoyed it a lot, the lads who run the train were very flexible with pick ups and drop offs.
