We went on the 4 hour mountain trip. Stopping off at various places along the way. Lunch at a taverna in the mountains where we had the village salad, one of the best salads I've ever tasted. Well worth the trip

We spent 4 hours on this train, travelling high up in the mountains, to visit old villages and churches. We also stopped for some lunch in a small taverna. Great trip and well worth the 8 euros each that we paid.

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.
