Classic Rail Journeys & Escorted Rail Tours

As the leading rail holiday experts, we firmly believe there's no better way to explore the world than by rail. A rail journey introduces you to scenic delights you'd never uncover on any other form of travel; as you glide through the heart of your destination, steal glimpses at picture-perfect rural landscapes, glittering azure coastlines, or frosty mountain peaks.

One of the things that makes rail travel so unique, is the long history behind classic railways. Intriguing tales, both fictional and non-fictional, give certain trains and rail routes an almost legendary status; one that makes our classic rail holidays something to remember.

From the dizzying heights of Switzerland's Alpine railways to the scenic beauty of Canada's Rocky Mountaineer, classic rail journeys are found across the globe. Our classic rail holidays take these unforgettable journeys and elevate them, by including them in culture-rich itineraries, all packed with hand-picked excursions and authentic experiences.

Take a look at our classic rail journeys selection below which features rail experiences around the world, and enjoy discovering your next once-in-a-lifetime holiday.

Grand Alpine Explorer

Joe Royle
5 stars
“We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday with GRJ. The Grand Alpine Tour truly lived up to expectations with stunning scenery, good weather & a variety of traditional & modern hotels. We had an excellent tour manager John Grundy, who was the consummate professional in every sense. The holiday gave us the opportunity to explore many cities & rural landmarks, so we covered a lot of ground whilst also enjoying several leisure days where we could explore further at our own pace. Great food, company, luxury trains….the list goes on!
