Escorted Rail and River Cruise

At Great Rail Journeys, we have built up an impressive collection of escorted rail and cruise holidays which allow you to discover the continent from its famed waterways, as you sail through some of Europe's most incredible scenery. Drift along the tranquil waters of the Rhône as you discover the region's verdant vineyards, wind past sun-drenched vineyards and terracotta villages on the golden Douro, or admire the majestic, historic cities that sit on the banks of the mighty Danube - all while savouring the relaxed atmosphere of a river cruise.

Great Rail Journeys was born from a passion for rail travel, so we believe there is no more fitting way to begin your cruise a simple and comfortable rail journey from the UK to mainland Europe. We have a number of rail options available; some departures make the most of the comfort and style that First Class rail travel has to offer, while some take advantage of the fantastic value for money that Standard Class provides. Whichever you choose, you will be escorted all the way from St Pancras International to your cruise ship by a dedicated Tour Manager, who will ensure that everything runs smoothly.

“An excellent and rel;axinng holiday. It was a pity that poor weather did npot allow for the full itinerary to be followed. The scenery around the inner isles was obstructed by low cloud which was disapointing.

“Great Rail Journeys kept us well informed all through the pandemic as to what was happening with our holiday as we booked it 2 years ago so it got delayed twice due to travel restrictions. They looked after us well from the time we arrived at their office at St Pancras station until the time we returned back to London at the end of the holiday. We have had 2 cruise holidays with CroisiEuroupe in the past so we knew what standard to expect and weren't disappointed. They take care of everything from the moment you step on their shuttle bus until you return to the rail station. Last time we travelled independently to join the cruise but GRJ made things so much simpler and stress free especially as Tim the GRJ representative was there to take care of everything. I think we were all a bit fraught at the beginning of the holiday with it being our first trip post Brexit and the easing of the Covid travel restrictions but we were soon at ease with Tim smoothing our travel both on the French Railways and our return on Eurostar.
