Iconic Rail Journeys

Whether it's the 180-mile trip the Glacier Express makes through the mountains of Switzerland, an experience aboard the steepest railway line in the world - the Flåm Railway in Norway, or a beautifully-restored journey on the Jacobite Steam Train through the Scottish Highlands, we know all of the best rail experiences to be had.​

Mr D Cunningham
5 stars
“Outstanding tour manager; great local guides; two brilliant agriturismo visits (one near Siena, the other in Sorrento). Huge potential for things to go wrong during such a long, involved trip - nothing did go wrong for me.

“A few of the days were too long. Also a number of the lunch stops rushed us back to the bus.

Janet
4 stars
“Brilliant holiday - just maybe amend the Toronto itinerary - we felt rushed through the falls then given more time than necessary at Niagara on the Lake village. We found the Toronto tour guide not in tune to our needs, quite brusque and not very informative, encouraging us to visit many shops! Other than that - a perfectly organised and enjoyable trip.
