Great Rail Journeys

We’ve been providing market-leading holidays for 45 years, making them true rail holiday specialists. Our itineraries combine comfortable hotels, exciting excursions, many delicious meals, leisure time, and fantastic rail experiences – from journeys on modern trains to heritage rail adventures. Alongside our classic escorted rail holidays, we now have more choices than ever. Our European chartered cruises sail on fantastic vessels with sublime dining options and some of the largest cabin sizes in the industry, and our small groups tours give you access to unique destinations and experiences that wouldn’t be possible in a larger group. The key elements of our holidays are quality and value. Everything you see is included in the price, and our itineraries are carefully crafted to make the most out of each destination. We use professional Tour Managers, informative local guides and convenient transport. On many tours, we include special touches such as opera visits, special meals, or farewell dinners. As well as being the leading UK provider of escorted rail holidays, we have also won a number of awards, most recently being awarded the gold award for Best Rail Holiday Company at the 2018 British Travel Awards – a testament to our commitment to outstanding holidays. We ensure the security of currency fluctuation as part of our price guarantee, so you know you’re getting the best value. We are members of the Association of Independent Tour Operators and flight-inclusive holidays are ATOL or ABTOT protected, while non-flight-inclusive holidays are protected by ABTOT.
