We are always clear about what is included in our holidays and make sure there are no hidden extras. The price of your holiday includes all transport and accommodation as well as a range of meals and excursions, leaving you with very little to pay when you are away. Our guests are usually pleasantly surprised at how little they had to pay for when they were actually on holiday.
Great Rail Journeys offers a stunning selection of holidays by rail. Choose from a range that includes everything from intimate tours of the Yorkshire Moors to an epic coast to coast rail journey across the USA. Personalise your holiday by adding rail travel from your local station, a stay in a London hotel, upgraded seats or maybe even some extra time at your final destination.
Our Tour Managers are courteous, friendly and professional. They are sociable, organised and unflappable. Their backgrounds are varied and include business, social service, teaching and the travel industry. It goes without saying that they are passionate about travel and eager to help you fill your journey with fond memories.
Your Tour Manager will ensure that arrangements made by our office come to fruition hundreds of miles away on your holiday and that any local difficulties are overcome before you are even aware of them.
In addition to the recognition we have received for responsible tourism Great Rail Journeys is also a full member of ABTA and AITO. Essentially this means that we are committed to providing high standards of business practice for the benefits of our guests, our staff and the travel industry at large.
Great Rail Journeys is also ATOL bonded. This means that when you fly to or from one of our holidays by rail your flights are protected by the Civil Aviation Authority.
These holidays have been with us for years and are often cited as being favourites of our customers. They often feature iconic, must-do great rail journeys.
