Vintage Railways of the Isle of Man

John Oxley
5 stars
“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.

“Excellent trip all round! Very much liked it being a small group so everybody could get to know each other. Very good comfortable hotel in great location with friendly staff. Perfect! Amanda our tour manager excellent. Very professional, friendly, and no problem, however large or small, she dealt with, with a smile and calmness. Train journeys throughout were efficient and a very comfortable travel. Highly recommend!
