Taking an escorted tour by train, is possibly the most stress free way of exploring the world.
About Great Rail Journeys
A great number of our new customers ask us, "What is a Great Rail Journeys tour like?" and "How does a Great Rail Journeys tour work?". We offer escorted tours by rail and we appreciate that many of our customers have never been on an escorted tour before, nor have they ever traveled as part of a group or embarked on a tour by train, but we believe that the journey really is just the start of the adventure. This is why we travel mainly by rail.
Trains are the most spacious and comfortable mode of long-haul transport, as well as one of the greenest and most sociable. On a train, you can simply sit back and relax, watching the ever-changing scenery through the windows. Or you can stetch your legs, walk about, and perhaps enjoying a conversation with your accompanying travelers.
With over 45 years of experience in arranging tours by rail, we know what makes a great tour. We know the best places to stay and how to create itineraries that combine the unusual, the iconic and the exciting, whilst at the same time giving you plenty of time to relax or venture off individually.
In addition to Tour Managers, we also use local guides to ensure that you discover all the local secrets you might miss if you were travelling on your own.
We are accredited members of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and the NTA, and an asssoicate member of the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) so you can rest assured that you will always receive the highest standards of customer service and quality during your time away with us.
