Escorted City Breaks & Sightseeing Holidays by Rail

Across Europe and the UK, there's a magnificent wealth of cities to lose yourself in, each brimming with unique culture and unforgettable sights. Join us on an enticing city break and we'll take you to the cultural heart of each city, with carefully-planned itineraries that combine visits to must-see attractions with authentic local experiences, as well as free time to explore in a way that suits you.  

See how historic cities have developed into modern hubs while maintaining their one-of-a-kind charms, or step back in time in ancient cities seemingly unchanged in centuries; the best part of Europe is its rich diversity. Our holidays take you to your chosen city in the best way possible, with an efficient and comfortable rail journey that takes you straight into the centre of the action - and gives you the chance to admire some of Europe's stunning stations, often landmarks in themselves.

Our customers love our Cities & Sights tours
Jungfrau Express Five-Star All Inclusive
4/Oct
Helen
5 stars
“We had a fantastic time. The tour lived up to the details in the brochure, as did the accommodation. However, we were very lucky with the weather for most of our tour. The special trips on cable cars / steam trains to mountain tops etc. would be hugely disappointing in damp, misty weather which arrives very quickly.

A Robertson
5 stars
“Well organized tour with excellent tour manager. Hotels were of good quality with good breakfast and dinner. Hotel in Krakow was rather long distance from the town center. Local guides were generally good although some gave too much historical information. I had an interesting time and learnt much about Poland. Perhaps publicity should warn future tour members there is a lot of walking?

Imperial Cities and Danube Cruise
2/Oct
J Davies
5 stars
“It was a wonderful experience. The tour managers were excellent - very knowledgeable and organised. The Amadeus Star is a beautiful and comfortable cruise ship with extremely helpful and friendly crew. The food was excellent - and plenty of it. The train journeys were comfortable and the city tours were most informative. For improvement it would be nice to have some more time to discover the cities on our own and do some shopping. One criticism (which I am aware that GRJ probably can do nothing about) is the cramped Eurostar lounge at Brussels station.
