SMALL GROUPS AS STANDARD
Maximum Group Size of 25

Premium Small Group Tours

To enhance your holiday experience, all our European and UK tours are now limited to just 25 people. This means you'll enjoy more unique excursions and stay at hotels a larger group wouldn't be able to. You'll also get to spend more time with your Tour Manager, benefitting from their experience and passion for travel as you explore with new friends.

Enhanced, Experience-led Itineraries

We know the best holidays are filled with immersive experiences that allow you to soak in the culture of your destination. With a smaller group, we can include excursions that not every tourist gets to enjoy. Explore the Vatican after hours on a private tour, go truffle hunting in Umbria or sip wines cultivated on the fertile slopes of Europe's most active volcano.

Experience Life as a Local

There's no better way to explore than with a local. They know all the best stories about their hometown, as well as the hidden nooks and crannies most people would miss on their own or in a larger group. Our local tour guides bring history to life right before your eyes, their passion, knowledge and people skills making for a truly engaging experience.

Small groups, winners year after year

Your feedback is essential in making our holidays even better, and one thing you were sure about was that less is more. Smaller group sizes have been successful year after year and are just as sociable an experience, if not more so, than if there were more people. You'll get more one on one time with your Tour Manager and find it easier to get to know your group.

Discover why premium small group tours are so rewarding

The best of both worlds, in a smaller group, you'll have a Tour Manager looking out for you throughout your holiday, just like our larger groups would, while also getting extra time to benefit from their hands-on expertise. You'll get a more in-depth insight into the cultures and traditions of the places you visit with locally-led tours that everyone can get involved in, excursions to sites not big enough for larger groups, and accommodation at unique or boutique hotels. There'll also be the chance to explore your way, with a more sedate pace set for viewing the attractions. On trains, it'll be easier to get a window seat and admire the views, while you and your new friends will be able to stay together yet still socially distance.

Mr Andrew Barber
5 stars
“We've been with Great Rail three times before. Blessed with good weather and a particularly good Tour Manager we had an excellent time on this trip. The hotels we're good and travel arrangements as good you'd expect from Great Rail. We enjoyed our time in St Moritz, but Zermatt was the real highlight so we're glad our tour went to Zermatt last. Colmar on the way home was a delightful surprise and we may well return for a weekend. Very pleased with this holiday.

“Everything was wonderful apart from the return of the suitcase, which took 6 days longer than the estimated delivery date. On the day it arrived we were given misleading information and the delivery was 1.45 hours later than the time stated. The revised delivery dates and times caused significant inconvenience.

“A very good well structured holiday. Good hotel. A Trike tour round the TT course on the spare day was a bonus. Definitely one for your bucket list.
