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.
