“Excellent trip all round! Very much liked it being a small group so everybody could get to know each other. Very good comfortable hotel in great location with friendly staff. Perfect! Amanda our tour manager excellent. Very professional, friendly, and no problem, however large or small, she dealt with, with a smile and calmness. Train journeys throughout were efficient and a very comfortable travel. Highly recommend!

“Great Rail Journeys were faultless throughout, however, on the journey from Brussels to Austria the German railway system was abysmal. Both legs of the trip (Brussels to Cologne, and then Cologne to Munich ) were plagued with delays and two major engine failure on the locomotive. When we arrived in Austria everything was brilliant, great hotel, excellent food, friendly staff and a well organised and enjoyable itinerary. The GRJ tour manager Steven was amazing,

“The highlight was the stay at the Almadraba Park Hotel. The attitude of all staff was wonderful and the standard of catering excellent. The journeys from and to St Pancras were very tiring although I appreciate they were forced on GRJ by changes to the train schedules. Years ago we travelled from Avignon to St Pancras changing at Lille. The TGV bypassed Paris and the connection at Lille was quite short. The transit of Paris is always a drag.
