Switzerland Rail & Escorted Holidays

Switzerland's scenery commands attention. Ancient glaciers that have slowly taken shape over millennia, age-old mountain peaks, lakes you just can't help but dip your toes in, and Alpine meadows that offer up a botanical feast for the eyes. These landscapes lend themselves effortlessly to the intrinsic charms of rail travel, so it's little wonder that Switzerland's rail journeys are among the most iconic, not to mention scenic, in the world.

Away from the wild allure of nature, chocolate-box villages, medieval towns and modern cities are waiting to be explored. Add in a rich history and enticing cuisine, who can resist Swiss chocolate and cheese, and you'll start to understand all this destination has to offer.

4 stars
“Very well organised trip, and certainly lived up to its promise to show outstanding Swiss scenery. Travel on Swiss railways was easy, and comfortable, and the hotel accommodation was generally very good. The only reason we haven't given 5 stars is that we kept that rating for the Rocky Mountaineer trip which we did in 2019.

“A wonderful trip. Well organised and led by Chris, our tour manager. The dinner experience in the hotel Grand Caddenabia wasn’t wonderful but the accommodation was good. I really enjoyed travelling by rail and would certainly consider another Great Rail Journey in the future.

“We enjoyed our holiday with Glacier express for various reasons. The organisation was good though the first days travel was too long. We only had 8 couples on our trip including the tour manager, which seemed a good amount.

Mr G Whittaker
4 stars
“A very enjoyable and well-packaged holiday, with an experienced and very approachable tour manager. Excellent traditional hotels. Extremely good value for money. But …. The group was FAR too large for a "First Class" holiday - and that would stop me trusting GRJ's descriptions in future !! Too many changes to the published itinerary. Not a good idea to have long and tiring day trips on either the first day in Switzerland or the last day before travel home.

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.
