Is It Worthy to Use Granada Tourist Train?

The tourist train is similar to Granada bus tour, has audio guide, panoramic views, but has another route. If you want to see the city from the outside, maybe it's worth using it.

tourist train vs bus Because of its size the tourist bus cannot enter the Albaizyn (but passes through the Garcia Lorca Park, the Science Museum, etc..).

The tourist train enters the Albayzin and has a stop at the Viewing-point of San Nicolas from where you can get the best view of the Alhambra.

If you just want to see 2 or 3 monuments in one day, the Albaycin and the Alhambra, for example, and you are not interested in the rest of the monuments, and do not want to see exterior of Granada, it is better to take a normal city bus, comes cheaper.

Opinions about Granada Buses
Not that good experience
We have waited more than an hour to go on the train. The audio plug was broken so we used one. for most of the trip only music were on the audio and the information began at the end on the 11th stop we wouldn't recommend the train.
Our driver dumped us 2 stops short
Don't take the night tour and expect to go all the way round - our driver dumped us 2 stops short at 2245 because he was "contracted to do only these hours". He said another bus would come but it didn't and we were stranded not knowing how to get back to the start of the route (stop 3 at night) (Viviane).
Ticket sellers allowed people to jump the queue
We took the bus with carriages from the Alhambra, around the city and got off at Albaycin. The buses were clean, smooth and well driven, allowing passengers to see the tourist sites en route.

What let it all down were the ticket sellers at the Alhambra stop who took money, gave tickets but then when the bus arrived allowed people to jump the queue, and there was total chaos.

We waited 30 mins with many other people, were first in the queue but had to be very forceful to obtain a seat. We could see free seats but the ticket sellers and drivers wouldn't allow anyone on and had no sense of order.

It was most disappointing and it spoils what could be a good transport service and is done so well in other busier cities. (Margaret).
Another perspective to tour Granada
It is a good and quick way for the tourists to see Granada, also for the residents of Albaycin and people from Granada, now we have at our disposal another perspective to tour our beautiful city (Manuel).
