Despite the rain we had a great tour on the train, the driver was funny and helpful. It was good to see some of the surrounding area of Mdina

The children didn't want to ride on the horse and carriage but did want to go on the train, it was a good way to see Rabat and the surrounding area, good value €5 for adults and they didn't charge for the children!
