Scenic Tours by Escorted Rail

Those who hear the call of the wild will find our scenic train tours to their taste. These tours, focused on beautiful scenery, are visual smörgåsbords. We enjoy unsurpassed views from our trains and our resorts are in some of the most magnificent locations. Our excursion programme continues to impress with a stunning range of scenery and wildlife on our guided scenic train tours.

The smörgåsbord is a perfect analogy for our scenic train tours. Each has its own theme, or flavour, which varies by region but they are bound together by a dedication to sample some of the world's finest scenes. Unlike other modes of transport, journeying by train allows travellers time to relax and focus on the view. In a car there are always distractions (like driving!) but the train is a perfect vehicle for enjoying the panoramic views, which makes our scenic train tours the perfect touring holiday.

Waterways of The Yonne, Paris and The Petite Seine by Barge
22/Sep
Julie Lane
5 stars
“An amazing experience. The crew were most attentive, caring for all passenger needs/requests. Nothing was too much trouble. A total of 16 passengers who all helped to make the trip most enjoyable. The food was a gastronomic delight. Napkins folded in different designs, by Monika, at lunch and dinner. Monika also gave a demonstration on "how to fold". A 3 or 4 course lunch, plus 3 or 4 course dinner, all served with wines suggested to go with the meal. Cheese from France was served daily, 2 different varieties for each serving. Wonderful desserts, especially the "Burning of Deborah". My birthday was during the trip and was made into a memorable occasion by the crew and fellow passengers. A different cocktail served every day and various spirits and non alcoholic drinks as requested. The Barge and cabins were cleaned to a very high standard. The excursions were interesting and the local guides were very knowledgeable. I was able to sign the book of condolences in memory of our Queen in a Church during an excursion. Thank you to the crew of RMS Deborah, especially Monika, who was loved by all and Great Rail Journeys.

The Glacier Express and St Moritz
22/Sep
Garfield and Sarah Lewis
5 stars
“An excellent holiday, well worth the money. St Moritz was a little dull and quiet, and really quite small, just a collection of VERY upmarket shops, but was a good base for trips. Zermatt was fantastic, full of life, plenty of small bars and cafes, and plenty of local things to do, and places to visit. Our courier, Gilly, was fantastic, with loads of ideas and help (eg. when the train decided not to stop at our station on the way home). The Hotel Sonna in Zermatt was fantastic, with the most sophisticated bathroom I've ever been in, as were all the trips on the Bernina and Glacier Express. Can't recommend the holiday enough, and we may well repeat it again.

L Ogilvie
5 stars
“This was the first experience of river cruising but we would definitely do it again. We liked the fact that it was small scale. On board the accommodation was excellent and the was food was delicious and generous. All staff were charming, attentive and professional. The excursions were well planned with knowledgeable local guides.

Jungfrau Express Five-Star All Inclusive
22/Sep
S King
5 stars
“An amazing experience through Switzerland, helped by our wonderful guide Sheila. Very organised and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. If I was to make one criticism, it would be that the food at the 5* hotel was not 5*, just OK. As we were in a group of 25, we did not get a choice, which I think should have been offered along with all the other guests not on the tour.
