The history of the former 'Gibraltar of the North' is still alive while driving past the historical sites of the old Fortress. Through head phones you will be part of the stereo-play of old times.

The biggest complaint about the Express tour is that it is geared towards children. Yes, the recorded commentary includes a child talking to his grandfather but this really doesn't in any way diminish the overall experience. The Express train is able to snake it's way...More

Slightly Boring and annoy very insightful but I would do it again with small children who are unable to walk around the city. Adults I would recommend skipping the tour and taking a self guided walk instead

I enjoyed the narrative on the Petrusse Express. It was imaginative. The story was told be a young girl and an adult. It was different, I didn't find myself falling asleep half way through! It appeals to both adults and children.

If you're thinking of taking this little 40 minute express train make sure you sit towards the back car. Whatever you do, do not sit in the first one. The engine was so loud that we could barely hear the audio. It took you through...More
