SMALL GROUPS AS STANDARD
Maximum Group Size of 25

Premium Small Group Tours

To enhance your holiday experience, all our European and UK tours are now limited to just 25 people. This means you'll enjoy more unique excursions and stay at hotels a larger group wouldn't be able to. You'll also get to spend more time with your Tour Manager, benefitting from their experience and passion for travel as you explore with new friends.

Enhanced, Experience-led Itineraries

We know the best holidays are filled with immersive experiences that allow you to soak in the culture of your destination. With a smaller group, we can include excursions that not every tourist gets to enjoy. Explore the Vatican after hours on a private tour, go truffle hunting in Umbria or sip wines cultivated on the fertile slopes of Europe's most active volcano.

Experience Life as a Local

There's no better way to explore than with a local. They know all the best stories about their hometown, as well as the hidden nooks and crannies most people would miss on their own or in a larger group. Our local tour guides bring history to life right before your eyes, their passion, knowledge and people skills making for a truly engaging experience.

Small groups, winners year after year

Your feedback is essential in making our holidays even better, and one thing you were sure about was that less is more. Smaller group sizes have been successful year after year and are just as sociable an experience, if not more so, than if there were more people. You'll get more one on one time with your Tour Manager and find it easier to get to know your group.

Discover why premium small group tours are so rewarding

The best of both worlds, in a smaller group, you'll have a Tour Manager looking out for you throughout your holiday, just like our larger groups would, while also getting extra time to benefit from their hands-on expertise. You'll get a more in-depth insight into the cultures and traditions of the places you visit with locally-led tours that everyone can get involved in, excursions to sites not big enough for larger groups, and accommodation at unique or boutique hotels. There'll also be the chance to explore your way, with a more sedate pace set for viewing the attractions. On trains, it'll be easier to get a window seat and admire the views, while you and your new friends will be able to stay together yet still socially distance.

“This holiday is way up there besides other favourite holidays with GRJ. COVID requirements in France did not affect the enjoyment of the holiday, in fact they made it feel a safer place to be. Firstly the Hotel du Roi lived up to everything you would expect from a 5* Hotel; high quality rooms, facilities, food and attentive staff. I even had a glass of champagne (included in the breakfast buffet) watching the sun rise over the Cite on the morning of departure! There was a good balance between planned trips and free time. The planned activities were most enjoyable and informative about local history. Our day in Narbonne coincided with the National Patrimoine Day (Heritage Day) when as well as the entrance fee to Museums & other Historic places being free, there were exhibitions & celebrations take place in the streets. It was so interesting & enjoyable. Another highlight for me was the visit to Mirepoix on market day followed by a coach drive through the French countryside. Carcassonne itself is a very interesting place to stay. The hotel was well placed by the river for both the Cite and the town in the other direction. Plenty to do all around. I took myself off for a boat ride along the Canal du Midi which I thoroughly enjoyed. Finally a word to solo travellers who might be considering a holiday with Great Rail Journeys. This was my 6th holiday with them since I was widowed and I intend to do many more. As a lone traveller you feel safe with them. Any problems, should they arise, are not your problem but expertly resolved by the Tour Manager. Fellow travellers have always been very inclusive and I have never felt left out, in fact far from it.

“All the three days of excursions were well organised. The information on each days itinerary provided by Lin Martin was excellent. Each day we left the hotel on time and arrived at our destination with time to spare. This enabled us to get refreshments and use the toilets before boarding the train. The hotel was of a good standard with a good buffet choice for breakfast and a nice selection of courses for the evening meal. The quiz on the last evening organised by Lin was very entertaining. The only annoyance of the holiday was when someone (not on a Great Rail Group) set off the fire alarm at 2.30am causing everyone to evacuate the hotel. It was the source of a lot of conversation the following morning. Overall a very good holiday
