Classic Rail Journeys & Escorted Rail Tours

As the leading rail tour experts, we firmly believe there's no better way to explore the world than by rail. A rail journey introduces you to scenic delights you'd never uncover on any other form of travel; as you glide through the heart of your destination, steal glimpses at picture-perfect rural landscapes, glittering azure coastlines, or frosty mountain peaks.

One of the things that makes rail travel so unique, is the long history behind classic railways. Intriguing tales, both fictional and non-fictional, give certain trains and rail routes an almost legendary status; one that makes our classic rail tours something to remember.

From the dizzying heights of Switzerland's Alpine railways to the scenic beauty of Canada's Rocky Mountaineer, classic rail journeys are found across the globe. Our classic rail tours take these unforgettable journeys and elevate them, by including them in culture-rich itineraries, all packed with hand-picked excursions and authentic experiences.

Take a look at our classic rail journeys selection below which features rail experiences around the world, and enjoy discovering your next once-in-a-lifetime tour.

Mr D Higgins

“This was an absolutely brilliant tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of some early morning starts and late evening finishes! The Tour Manager was just great and a real fund of knowledge at every stage of the tour. She was well informed and was able to keep us very well advised along the way, as well as keeping the whole trip on schedule.

4 stars
“Brilliant tour - just maybe amend the Toronto itinerary - we felt rushed through the falls then given more time than necessary at Niagara on the Lake village. We found the Toronto tour guide not in tune to our needs, quite brusque and not very informative, encouraging us to visit many shops! Other than that - a perfectly organised and enjoyable trip.

Mrs A Fay
4 stars
“Sweitzerland was so pretty. Their trains were clean and bright and their staff at local level were very pleasant. Our hotel was full of character but was too far up the hill in Wengen.
