Premium Escorted Tours

At Great Rail Journeys, we believe that all of our holidays are of fantastic quality and represent brilliant value for money. But we know that sometimes, our customers prefer something extra special, and our Premium Collection offers exactly that.

Our Premium Collection features all of the components that have made our holidays so successful, but generally operates at a higher overall level with more inclusions. These tours feature First Class rail travel from the beginning of the tour through to its conclusion as standard - ensuring that you will always be in the very best seating available on the train, regardless of the length of your journey.

Similarly, the hotels used on our Premium tours all offer outstanding 4 or 5 star accommodation, with impeccable service levels. As with all of our tours, each of the hotels featured has been carefully selected for their excellent locations. But these hotels have also been hand-picked for other unique qualities.

In addition to the fantastic First Class rail travel throughout the holiday, many of the tours in our Premium Collection also feature journeys on some of the world's most famous trains, such as the iconic Glacier Express. Others feature journeys - sometimes for several days - on glamorous private trains, like the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, or El Expreso de la Robla. The Great Rail Journeys Premium Collection covers a varied array of destinations, but one constant across the programme is that each tour includes a great level of inclusive sightseeing, combined with other unique excursions to uncover the very best that the region has to offer.

Mr Potts

“Super Hotel, who looked after dietary needs very well, with excellent and friendly service. Well organised trip with a mix of free days and organised days well spread throughout the tour. Amanda Perry our Tour Manager was top class, looking after all of us and guiding us through our days out as well as providing great suggestions for the free days, and always being available to help. An excellent holiday all round!

Grand Tour of South Africa

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.
