I’ve read the reviews and to be honest some are harsh. After being in Malta you know the roads aren’t all brilliant so you should know what to expect. It lasts about 25 minutes and you see a little bit extra of a stunning town...More

For €5 person take this little train ride around Rabat, Mdina & Mtarfa. With an interesting commentary you get to see local sights including areas you might not consider, 30 mins well spent.

This was around a half an hour tour with detailed explanations of various places of interest. Took this train ride as a local resident and learned things about familiar places I knew nothing about.

We have done many such petit train rides and this was probably the poorest. The route was particularly bumpy. There really wasn’t Much of interest compared with the old city itself. Poor value for money, €5 per person for about 20 minutes.
