Dr P Hill
“excellent organisation. No problems
Edinburgh, the Highlands & Islands
Mrs C Inboden
“Everybody I dealt with at Great Rails was very knowledgeable and organized. Our experience was exactly as expected.
Five-Star India’s Golden Triangle, Tigers & Shimla
Anonymous
“Well organised tour, excellent tour manager and local guide, really impressed
India's Golden Triangle
Anonymous
“First time with Great Rail Journey as my usual single provider could only get me to Shimla as an add on and on my own. Have no interest in going to Rathambore for the tigers as I can see them at Chessington. Taj Mahal has been on a 50 year To Do list. Face timed with an Indian gentleman with his wife and 6 week old son. She was delighted when I came on the phone with a Namaste.

Traditional Glacier Express

“Great organisation, itinerary and hotels. Guide was fantastic and very considerate to all Clients especially as some of them had problems with their mobility and needs
Western Highlands & Hebrides
Mr P Johnson
“Thoroughly enjoyed the round of experiences in this holiday. A bit spoilt by the weather.
A Castle On The Shores Of Loch Fyne
Anonymous
“Very little free time, both to experience the hotel and surroundings and also the local harbour. It is Scotland, but there was a lot of travel to get anywhere. The trip to the distillery was a long way for an hour’s experience, and not really of much interest to the ladies perhaps.
Grand Imperial Cities
Anonymous
“Excellent tour manager coped the issues thrown her way. Hotel food not so good. would have paid for extra night in Nurnberg and Berlin if that was available. Would have perferred to go direct to Berlin rather than visit Spreewald.
