Grand Tours

Be they multi-centre breaks or cross continent journeys, Grand Tours are the trip of a lifetime. Some tours favour breadth, covering vast tracts of land across a wide region, while others focus on more detailed explorations of smaller areas. We offer both types from the longest railway line in the world, to music-centric tours of the USA's Deep South.

The traditional Grand Tours became a trend in Britain around the seventeenth century but was the preserve of the super rich. With the introduction of train travel the Tour became open to the upper middle classes. Unfortunately the number of people taking the Grand Tour has declined in recent years as more and more young people are taking gap years in exotic locations rather than learning more about their own part of the world. In honour of the original Grand Tour we have compiled a selection of train journeys which are in keeping with the ideals of education and enlightenment as well as reflecting the make up of the modern world.

“An amazing well organised trip. Holiday manager and guide were both very knowledgeable and always there for you. This was my first holiday travelling alone, but never felt alone, the rest of the group and guides always kept an eye out for me. The only downside was the last minute cancellation of my flights by BA meaning I had to travel alone the following day. However although I was arriving alone at 11pm in Delhi (which did make me anxious) our tour manager ensured and organised someone to meet me and get me to the hotel. I would certainly travel with this company again. Barbara
