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.

“Despite the problems with the ferry crossings both going and returning to Heysham, I felt the holiday was a success and the tour manager should be highly commended for the way she dealt with all the problems. The Great Rail Journeys Head Office should also be congratulated for so swiftly arranging accommodation due to cancelled ferries and paying for an extra evening meal both the Lancaster Hotel on the way out and at the Isle of Man hotel before our return on the evening ferry. The holiday programme itself on the Island lived up to expectation and I thoroughly enjoyed all the experiences and the hotel where we stayed was excellent with the staff being very friendly and helpful.

“Tour courier was especially helpful - always going the extra mile! The NH hotel in Turin was a let down. The light switches did not work and the washbasin plug was inoperable.
