“A truly great experience. Aside from the beautiful scenery, the trip was extremely well run by Tracey Richards. The buses were spotless and comfortable, the trains all enjoyable. I thought each of the hotels and meals were superb.......well done by Great Rail. When weather forced some changes in mode os transportation, Tracey made it all appear seamless and an improvement. I felt she balnced her handling of a very diverse group so well. My hats off to Tracey. Thank you Great Rail. Mike and Bonnie Slein Newport, RI USA

“This was such a well organised, we'll thought out trip. The travel was fun, the hotel perfect in every way, our tour guide was helpful without being intrusive and the excursions allowed you to do your own thing or go with the guided group. Everything combined to make this a perfect, relaxing getaway. Strongly recommended.
