Rail Tours in France & Benelux

Discover the cultural heart of Europe

Sample the prized gastronomy and delightful scenery of France's rolling hills and endless vineyards. A visit to Paris goes without saying, but the call of the wild in Brittany is often answered. Or venture northeast to the quaint market villages of Belgium and the windswept port towns of the Netherlands. From the cosmopolitan capitals of Amsterdam and Brussels to the small Champagne towns, this region delights at every turn.

As the home of some of the finest cuisine in the world it is unsurprising that our guests choose to discover as much as possible during meal times. We take great pains to ensure that our tours offer a wide and varied selection of the best gastronomy but should you choose to depart from our suggested itinerary of eateries your tour manager will be able to provide you with a list of alternatives. From the Michelin starred haute cuisine at Le Pont de l'Ouysse in the Dordogne, to simple peasant fare eaten on rough wooden picnic tables, some of France's best sights can be found over the dinner table.
