Customer Favourites

This incredible selection of tours are customers favourites for a reason. Year after year, we enjoy comments from our customers proclaiming their enjoyment for the hotels, the meals, the cultural experiences and, of course, the magnificent railway journeys these holidays encompass.

In the glorious south of Europe, discover Italy and Spain. Two countries simply bursting with vibrant traditions, here, you can find some of the most iconic sights in Europe, from the canals of Venice to the Moorish palace of Granada. Enjoy informative guided tours, sample food and wine in authentic settings, and truly immerse yourself in cultures that are renowned for their erachanging art and delicious food.

For those who appreciate the splendours of nature, there can be no place better than stunning Switzerland. A destination where the towns and cities spill over into the incomparable countryside with astonishing effects, this is certainly a country that has to be seen by rail. And on board the Glacier Express, the 'slowest express train in the world', is a fine way to do it, as the leisurely pace allows passengers to truly absorb the awe-inspiring Alpine landscape in all seasons.

Austria and Germany are home to some of the Imperial capitals established by the Hapsburg empire. Vienna with its elegant, artistic style, and Berlin with its turbulent history and resilient monuments both offer an inspiring insight into the changes of mainland Europe throughout the ages.

Just beyond your front door, you can enjoy the very best that the United Kingdom has to offer. Climb aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, the most visited heritage railway in England thanks to it's breathtaking scenery, and picturesque railway stations along the way. On the Isle of Man, uncover an incredible amount of history that still comes alive on the island, with horse-drawn trams, steam railways, and castles that are beloved by visitors from all around the world.

“This holiday is way up there besides other favourite holidays with GRJ. COVID requirements in France did not affect the enjoyment of the holiday, in fact they made it feel a safer place to be. Firstly the Hotel du Roi lived up to everything you would expect from a 5* Hotel; high quality rooms, facilities, food and attentive staff. I even had a glass of champagne (included in the breakfast buffet) watching the sun rise over the Cite on the morning of departure! There was a good balance between planned trips and free time. The planned activities were most enjoyable and informative about local history. Our day in Narbonne coincided with the National Patrimoine Day (Heritage Day) when as well as the entrance fee to Museums & other Historic places being free, there were exhibitions & celebrations take place in the streets. It was so interesting & enjoyable. Another highlight for me was the visit to Mirepoix on market day followed by a coach drive through the French countryside. Carcassonne itself is a very interesting place to stay. The hotel was well placed by the river for both the Cite and the town in the other direction. Plenty to do all around. I took myself off for a boat ride along the Canal du Midi which I thoroughly enjoyed. Finally a word to solo travellers who might be considering a holiday with Great Rail Journeys. This was my 6th holiday with them since I was widowed and I intend to do many more. As a lone traveller you feel safe with them. Any problems, should they arise, are not your problem but expertly resolved by the Tour Manager. Fellow travellers have always been very inclusive and I have never felt left out, in fact far from it.

“The hotel was excellent and well positioned and the train rides were delightful. I loved visiting the castle and the boat trip was fun. I do think the itinerary on the final day would have been better if the the visit to the battlefield had been in the morning and the train ride had been in the afternoon. All round very enjoyable holiday.
