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.

“This was a lovely break with an awesome tour guide and amazing group. Everyone took the time to get to know each other and look out for each other. As a solo traveller I found that it was a good balance of group time and free time. The additional excursions were a good touch. There were some steep hills at times but we were on mountains! I would highly recommend

Lake Como and The Bernina Express

“Good holiday but too many long coach journeys took the edge of it somewhat, as did having to chase the return of our luggage through First Luggage who were unresponsive. Tim White is a first class Tour Manager and managed to sort out several issues not least when the train broke down on our first day in France. Como is lovely, the food at the hotel was very enjoyable and the Bernina Express was a highlight.

The Glacier Express and St Moritz

Les Mackey

“We were downgraded on the Glacier Express because of overbooking. This was not the fault of GRJ. At the last minute we were reinstated for most but not all of it. It meant we had to travel on later trains to the group. The train journey from Cologne to St Moritz was tiresome and involved changes of stations, trains etc due to the problems on German Rail. This was not the fault of GRJ. However, the journey took 13.5 hours. Our tour guide was brilliant, he did his utmost to get us there as quickly as he could. He was constantly cheerful no matter what was thrown at him. He is a credit to GRJ. Overall the holiday was superb. Lovely scenery, hotels.
