Grand Tours

Be they multi-centre breaks or cross continent journeys, Grand Tours are the trip of a lifetime. Some tours favour breadth, covering vast tracts of land across a wide region, while others focus on more detailed explorations of smaller areas. We offer both types from the longest railway line in the world, to music-centric tours of the USA's Deep South.

The traditional Grand Tours became a trend in Britain around the seventeenth century but was the preserve of the super rich. With the introduction of train travel the Tour became open to the upper middle classes. Unfortunately the number of people taking the Grand Tour has declined in recent years as more and more young people are taking gap years in exotic locations rather than learning more about their own part of the world. In honour of the original Grand Tour we have compiled a selection of train journeys which are in keeping with the ideals of education and enlightenment as well as reflecting the make up of the modern world.

Mr D Higgins
5 stars
“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.

“Excellent well organised tour with minimal hassle at terminals as porterage very effective. Excellent tour guide throughout and very informative local guides. Highly recommended. Only disappointing feature was the Yangtse river trip where vessel was a bir dated and shabby and service quality - particularly in restaurant - rather patchy..
