A diabolical experience and one.I would strongly recommend against. Travelogue, if you can call it that, in.Spanish &'English only. No headphones with a language choice. Solid roof so photos a non starter. Jolting and lurching over cobbled streets and rutted byways on thinly padded seats...More

Sheer torture. Manages to tour the ugliest, newest, most desolate areas of SDC. They wouldn't show me a route map so I could see if it would be a good tour. The driver tried to cram 4 people on a bench regardless of what size...More

Probably the worst tourist train I have ever had to endure. If you want to discover the worst of Santiago de Compostela waste 6 Euros.

This little mini train trip around the city gives you a good idea of the layout. It's only takes around 45 minutes to complete the journey & it runs every hour from 10am from the central Praza do Obradoiro, right beside the Cathedral

This was a fulfilling 45 minutes, some concerns, notwithstanding. We got to see part of the city we would not otherwise have reached on foot. The train went through the old town, weaving in and out of centuries old streets and buildings. We got to...More

Hopped on this train in the main square outside the cathedral . At this point we did not understand that we would be shown the university campus and the park. We found the trip interesting but if you thought you would be touring the medieval...More

I've read the reviews from other people, and just can't understand why everyone like this ride so much. Once the train sets off, you're stuck with it for 45 mins - there is no option to get off. It begins in the main square outside...More

I saw this train in the large square in front of the Cathedral and since I was tired of walking around, decided to take the 45 min. tour. It was a nice surprise. The commentary was in Spanish and English and the train goes out...More
