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.
