Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys

Michael Portillo has been captivating audiences, not only with his marvellous taste in clothing, but also thanks to his fantastic and informative railway programmes. Armed with Bradshaw's variety of railway guides, Portillo explores beautiful countries through the eyes of the eponymous man, who wrote his guides well over 100 years ago. Enjoy experiencing how the variety of countries, railways, and people have changed in the last century. Experience the beauty of India and its development from being under the British Raj to India as a magnificent independent country.

Discover the turbulent Eastern Europe with almost unrecognisable kingdoms of the past to the countries of today, morphed and changed by wars and communism. In the British Isles uncover a country once connected entirely by steam, now enjoying stunning heritage rails as a tourist experience, and in America, the country once built on the back of railroads, enjoy the epic adventures that can take you from sea to shining sea. Of course, all of these wonderful destinations are lent Portillo's unique charm and charisma, moving Bradshaw's into the modern age, and showing the audience some of every featured countries most wonderful hidden treasures - both old and new.

Rocky Mountaineer will appear in Michael Portillo's Great Canadian Railway Journeys, airing at 6.30pm on 24th January 2019 on BBC Two. Find out more about the Rocky Mountaineer here.

5 stars
“I thought the journey was excellent and good value. I loved all the travel and activities. The hotels were good on the whole and the food provided was better than I had expected I did not take either photos or videos so cannot answer the next question.

Grand Tour of South Africa
10/Jun
Ian Barnicoat
5 stars
“A tour with quite a few surprises and opportunities to see the reality of South Africa regaining its tourism mojo. The introduction tour set the tone of living in South Africa. Johan Vos laid the foundation for the train tour. All the planned off train excursions took place but not always to the original programme. The train itself was very well appointed with nothing to much trouble. The Cape Town city personal experience was enlightening and complemented the pre-planned excursions. The hotel made an excellent base to explore the locale. A value for money experience.

Patsy Lynch

“The trip was very scenic and tour manager Ed did a good job . We had a lovely group who got on well together . Just a shame we had no welcome drinks or leaving do. The lack of food not included in the trip adds a big cost to the trip.

4 stars
“The tour itself was excellent but the reason for only four stars is that the pre tour information was very slow in being made available.
