Planetrail is a small family based company which organises tailor made first class rail journeys in Europe. Their website gives you some ideas about their popular trips, but they will efficiently organise a trip for you if these don not quite suit.

Once in any of the European cities with a station, Planetrail will book you a good hotel. You are then free to use the time as you wish. To me this is the best of both worlds, as rail tickets can be complicated crossing international borders, but there is no planned itinerary or group pressure.

They even find you a good deal on First class trains to London should you hail from the Far North, as I do.

This year we went to Berlin, Prague, Budapest, Vienna and Nuremberg on their Imperial Cities tour – we changed some times to stay longer in some places I’d not seen for 40 years plus. Europe is so very different now.

You will speak to Guy Saunders or Sharon Inman if you ring, both knowledgeable and helpful. You don’t need big, faceless companies. And if you want to organise a surprise trip for a loved one, they will work it with you – plain brown envelopes and all!!
