Great Rail Journeys - Best Rail Holiday Company

On a rail holiday, often the journey is just as important as the destination, so we ensure that you travel in the best rail accommodation available. We feel that this offers comfort and luxury at an unbeatable value, in a manner that you just can’t get with air travel. A luggage handling service is available on selected tours to make your rail holiday even more stress free and effortless.

Great Rail Journeys have tours starting from as little as £355 per person for a tour of Torquay and the Eden Project, but our market is truly global. See Switzerland from the Glacier Express, take an escorted trip to the Christmas Markets or enjoy a luxury journey of a lifetime on the Trans-Siberian Express.

Or what about America? Known as much for its bustling cities as its wild, dramatic landscapes, what better way to explore this diverse land than by train. Great Rail Journeys have 30 escorted group rail tours in its portfolio and more than 40 independent rail touring options with GRJ Independent. Explore the classic rail routes, journey aboard scenic railroads or take a Coast to Coast tour and experience the USA the best way possible!
