The Escorted Experience
Our UK based Tour Managers are with you from start to finish.
Just one of the many advantages of an escorted holiday with Great Rail Journeys is that you are travelling with a holiday expert who knows all the ins and outs of how to make international travel as straightforward as possible.
The reassurance of a helping hand
On nearly every tour you embark on, you will have a professional and dedicated Tour Manager who is there to make sure you get the holiday you want, without stress, problems or hitches.
They are the experts when it comes to taking charge of the logistical arrangements that go hand in hand with travel abroad, and their confidence and unflustered demeanour cannot help but leave you feeling relaxed and at ease. And because they are with you throughout, this means you'll always have the reassurance of having someone available who really knows the ropes.
We select all Tour Managers for their intelligence, responsiveness and impeccable people skills.
They come from a variety of backgrounds and professions (some were once customers themselves who were inspired by their experiences with us), but they all have one thing in common - they love travelling and meeting new people.
At the same time though, they have the uncanny ability to fade inconspicuously into the background when needs be.
Group Holidays for Independent Travellers
Couples and single travellers alike choose our tours for a relaxing, rewarding holiday, which is why we aim to create holidays that are inclusive and welcoming to the single traveller. Great Rail Journeys escorted tours offer the single traveller the flexibility to be as involved as they want.
Local Guides with Local knowledge
Home-grown insight is invaluable if you're looking to discover the more authentic side to your chosen destination, which is why on many of the excursions and tours included, you will be joined by expert local guides who working closely alongside your Tour Manager.
Bringing a unique and unrivalled level of information about the sights you'll be seeing, they provide an indispensable insight that you might miss if travelling alone.
We'll meet you at the station
To ensure that your holiday gets off to the perfect start, we have our own dedicated Departure Office at St Pancras International. Your Tour Manager will be there waiting to greet you, introduce you to your fellow travellers, and generally make sure that your holiday gets off on the right foot.
