France & Benelux

France is effortlessly chic, bursting with romantic cities, pavement cafés perfect for people watching, world-famous food and wine, and a southern coastline which epitomises Mediterranean glamour.

In Belgium we discover a perfect blend of French and German culture, Renaissance architecture, and medieval squares brimming with welcoming beer halls. Then there's the Netherlands. Get lost in an endless sea of blooming tulips in Keukenhof Gardens, and stroll alongside labyrinthine canals lined with characterful houses in Amsterdam. These destinations delight at every turn, and there is no better way to see them than by Europe's efficient, high-speed rail network.

The Waterways of Alsace and Lorraine by Barge

“Great Rail Journeys kept us well informed all through the pandemic as to what was happening with our holiday as we booked it 2 years ago so it got delayed twice due to travel restrictions. They looked after us well from the time we arrived at their office at St Pancras station until the time we returned back to London at the end of the holiday. We have had 2 cruise holidays with CroisiEuroupe in the past so we knew what standard to expect and weren't disappointed. They take care of everything from the moment you step on their shuttle bus until you return to the rail station. Last time we travelled independently to join the cruise but GRJ made things so much simpler and stress free especially as Tim the GRJ representative was there to take care of everything. I think we were all a bit fraught at the beginning of the holiday with it being our first trip post Brexit and the easing of the Covid travel restrictions but we were soon at ease with Tim smoothing our travel both on the French Railways and our return on Eurostar.

“This holiday is way up there besides other favourite holidays with GRJ. COVID requirements in France did not affect the enjoyment of the holiday, in fact they made it feel a safer place to be. Firstly the Hotel du Roi lived up to everything you would expect from a 5* Hotel; high quality rooms, facilities, food and attentive staff. I even had a glass of champagne (included in the breakfast buffet) watching the sun rise over the Cite on the morning of departure! There was a good balance between planned trips and free time. The planned activities were most enjoyable and informative about local history. Our day in Narbonne coincided with the National Patrimoine Day (Heritage Day) when as well as the entrance fee to Museums & other Historic places being free, there were exhibitions & celebrations take place in the streets. It was so interesting & enjoyable. Another highlight for me was the visit to Mirepoix on market day followed by a coach drive through the French countryside. Carcassonne itself is a very interesting place to stay. The hotel was well placed by the river for both the Cite and the town in the other direction. Plenty to do all around. I took myself off for a boat ride along the Canal du Midi which I thoroughly enjoyed. Finally a word to solo travellers who might be considering a holiday with Great Rail Journeys. This was my 6th holiday with them since I was widowed and I intend to do many more. As a lone traveller you feel safe with them. Any problems, should they arise, are not your problem but expertly resolved by the Tour Manager. Fellow travellers have always been very inclusive and I have never felt left out, in fact far from it.

“The food and drink onboard the barge, MS Deborah, was wonderful. The crew could not have been more helpful and our fellow passengers (13 total) were interesting and fun. The youngest was 66 and the oldest 91, which made the transfer in Paris interesting. The only down side was the Covid 19 testing and paperwork required to re-enter the UK which took up the whole of our last afternoon on the barge. What would have happened in the event of a positive PCR test on the penultimate day of the holiday, as required under the regulations at the time, nobody appeared to know.
