Great Rail Journeys - Escorted Train Tours

Experience the world as travelers once did during the golden-age of rail. From the Highlands of Scotland to the lush valleys of the Emerald Isle - there really is no better range of group vacations to choose from. 

One of the best things about our amazing train tours is the opportunity to see a destination from its best vantage point - winding through the towns, cities, and countryside on board an incredible range of trains.

Our customers also love our fantastic Tour Managers, who are there to escort you from the beginning to the end of your rail tour. With incredible local knowledge of your destination, the Tour Managers ensure that you can get to your train on time, meet in the right places, and, on days off, can help you find the best sights to see. Meet new people and make new friends, whether it is on a trip to visit a beautiful local destination, or over an exquisitely prepared meal, all whilst seeing the world the Great Rail Way.
