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.

Wengen and the Jungfrau Express
13 Nov 2022
James McGill
5 stars
“My wife says it is the best holiday she has ever been on. I loved it as well. It was well organised and Philip Ellson was an excellent tour guide. The scenery was stunning. Thank you so much. We loved Wengen and all the surrounding area.

Grand Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia

Austin
5 stars
“This was a full on experience expertly handled by Great Rail Journeys. The hotels and food were superb. The tour manger was excellent and had great attention to detail. Even a typhoon did not phase him and with quickly arranging a different hotel and internal flights we were back on track. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and will certainly book another with Great Rail.

Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast
04 Nov 2022
Mark Warrick
5 stars
“A wonderful holiday with a varied itinerary that included history, spectacular scenery and sunny beaches. Rail travel was smooth and easy and we had some wonderful meals. The hotel in Sorrento was great but its breakfast coffee was best avoided - appalling for Italy - but that was the only poor aspect of a really good time. Tour manager was wonderful.

I Grimble
5 stars
“We loved the train journeys, and the fantastic breadth of experience. The guides were excellent and the tour manager was brilliant. We can't fault the organisation. It would have been better to have taken the ferry to Tangiers and not Tangiers Port.
