New for 2016, we are thrilled to be launching a range we consider to be amongst the most exciting of all our holidays yet, Great Rail Journeys' Historical tours. We feel these forays into the past are perfectly matched with some of our already existing cultural experiences, including gastronomic delights and carnival atmospheres across Europe, which is why we have created this dedicated collection of rail tours. Now you can find each of our itineraries that combine such unmissable sightseeing opportunities in one place.
In choosing a Great Rail Journeys All Inclusive holiday, you can rest assured that any time that would be allocated to researching local restaurants can instead be spent on relaxing at the hotel or soaking up the local culture. All your meals are included as standard and are often eaten in the comfort of your accommodation after having been created by chef's who use only the freshest ingredients. This is a wonderful way to try some local delicacies, as well as enjoying all the traditional favourites.
Included meals and complimentary drinks aren't the only benefit of an All Inclusive experience though. These tours still include the fantastic experiences you'd from one of our tours, from organising the most convenient travel options and comfortable hotels to including fascinating guided tours and inspiring excursions as you relax aboard a cruise on the Danube to exploring the snow-capped peaks of Switzerland.
