Great Rail Journeys - Best Rail Holiday Company

Our destination specialists work year-round to craft unique itineraries and use their rail expertise to connect must-see sights in every destination, while our attentive Tour Managers travel with you from start to finish, making sure you get the most out of your holiday and taking care of all the logistics. Providing an exceptional level of service and attention to detail from the moment you set off until it’s time to go home, you can relax and enjoy the adventure, confident that their passion for explorations by rail makes them a cut above the rest.

We’ll always go out of our way to surpass your expectations, which is why we offer a complimentary luggage service, so there’s no heavy lifting to do, and reduced our tour group size to 25 across our Europe and UK programmes. With fewer people, you can stay in more characterful hotels, move around the sights easily, enjoy excursions not possible for larger groups and get a more personal service from your Tour Manager. You’ll find the small group size sociable too, as you mix with like-minded travellers.

These small touches and attention to detail are what make a holiday special, but on top of that, we also promise you’ll get a unique perspective of the places you visit, with itineraries that immerse you in different cultures and journeys that transport you to places only rail can reach. Whether it’s a train ride through the snow under the gaze of Norway’s magical Northern Lights or an incredible journey through the soaring peaks of the Rocky Mountains, we’ll help you create memories to last a lifetime.

And, just like you, we love trying new things. That’s why we’ve put all our experience and skills into creating a five-star range of luxurious and relaxing river cruises, a unique way of connecting the railways and waterways of Europe so that you get to see, do and experience so much more.

But don’t just take our word for it, why not have a look at some of our most popular holidays? Near or far, enjoy a whole new way of travelling whether you want to visit Switzerland, Scotland, Italy, India or the USA and start planning your next adventure the Great Rail Way.
