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.

Great, informative trip around Mdina and the surrounding area which would be difficult to see on foot. Great value - €5 for 30min and leaves every hour. Would highly recommend!

Jumped on here for 5 euros each, worth it to drive a round the local town and past the Mdina. Driver was friendly and informative. After seeing the town on the train, we decided to go in and walk around. Glad that we did this.
