Switzerland Rail & Escorted Holidays

Switzerland's scenery commands attention. Ancient glaciers that have slowly taken shape over millennia, age-old mountain peaks, lakes you just can't help but dip your toes in, and Alpine meadows that offer up a botanical feast for the eyes. These landscapes lend themselves effortlessly to the intrinsic charms of rail travel, so it's little wonder that Switzerland's rail journeys are among the most iconic, not to mention scenic, in the world.

Away from the wild allure of nature, chocolate-box villages, medieval towns and modern cities are waiting to be explored. Add in a rich history and enticing cuisine, who can resist Swiss chocolate and cheese, and you'll start to understand all this destination has to offer.

“Had an excellent time on this holiday based in Wengen, was able to see so many lovely places on the trips we had each day and thankfully the weather couldn't have been any better. Was with a good group of people on the tour and Paul our tour manager kept everything running along smoothly.

The Glacier Express and St Moritz
22/Sep
Garfield and Sarah Lewis
5 stars
“An excellent holiday, well worth the money. St Moritz was a little dull and quiet, and really quite small, just a collection of VERY upmarket shops, but was a good base for trips. Zermatt was fantastic, full of life, plenty of small bars and cafes, and plenty of local things to do, and places to visit. Our courier, Gilly, was fantastic, with loads of ideas and help (eg. when the train decided not to stop at our station on the way home). The Hotel Sonna in Zermatt was fantastic, with the most sophisticated bathroom I've ever been in, as were all the trips on the Bernina and Glacier Express. Can't recommend the holiday enough, and we may well repeat it again.

Jungfrau Express Five-Star All Inclusive

S King
5 stars
“An amazing experience through Switzerland, helped by our wonderful guide Sheila. Very organised and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. If I was to make one criticism, it would be that the food at the 5* hotel was not 5*, just OK. As we were in a group of 25, we did not get a choice, which I think should have been offered along with all the other guests not on the tour.

Five-Star Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc Express

Neil from Gloucester
5 stars
“Amazing holiday, thank you! Hotel was of the highest standard, staff were friendly, efficient, & most helpful. Reception staff were brilliant in assisting us recover a lost mobile, could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was superb, with amazing views of the mountains from the dinning room.Dinner served for our small group was also excellent. Trips were interesting & varied. Maybe spend less time on the Gruyere & Gstaad excursions, too much time to stand around. Both castles were interesting, & our guide Anna at Chillon Castle was the best ever. Train journeys ran like clockwork. Finally our Tour Manager, Ian, was brilliant, ensuring our small group had the most wonderful holiday.
