Open 7 Days A Week


We run a number of popular competitions throughout the year. These can be in a variety of themes, but of course they usually centre on travel!

For example, previous competitions have included our "Photorail" contest, in which contestants were invited to send in their favourite photos taken during one of our tours, for the chance to win £200 worth of Great Rail Journeys Holiday Vouchers to put towards their next adventure.

Customer reviews competition

Currently we are running the Great Rail Journeys' Customer Reviews Competition. We know that our holidays provide a wonderful experience and represent unbeatable value for money… and our customers agree!

As well as filling in a detailed questionnaire, we invite our customers to send in a few words to describe their experience. We publish the reviews alongside the itineraries on our website allowing future travellers to get a true feel for Great Rail Journeys' tours. Every review we receive is entered into our monthly prize draw for an Amazon Kindle.

May's winner was Janet Billings, who has been on a number of tours with us. Her review is published below.

"I have enjoyed several holidays with Great Rail Journeys. It is so comforting to leave all the organisation of a trip in such efficient, competent and sympathetic hands."

"All the Tour Managers have been efficient, effective, knowledgeable and friendly. Some have more background knowledge of railways but that has become less important over time; understanding timetables and national organisation of rail travel is more important. I have been impressed by two Tour Managers, Glynn, who managed the "USA COAST TO COAST" in 2010, such a long, complicated trip, and Linda, whose 2012 pre-Andalucian trip phone call was very reassuring."

"But it is unfair to name only two, as I have been very impressed by all of them, for their competence, friendliness and "Grace Under Fire" when there are complications."

If you would like to share your experience and submit a review of your Great Rail Journey, please email Please remember to provide details of your booking and to include the date you travelled. Every entry will be included in our monthly prize draw for an Amazon Kindle - we'll publish the winner's review on this page every month.
