Touring Holidays by Escorted Rail

On one of Great Rail Journeys' touring holidays, you can enjoy a variety of different destinations during a single holiday. Travelling by train, you will speed into the heart of every city you're visiting, arriving only minutes from your hotel and within easy access of the city sights and attractions. On each of our touring holidays, you can expect to see and do more than you would on a single-centre holiday. You can avoid seeing the same sights every day, and it's unlikely you'll have to eat in the same restaurant twice.

Typically on our touring holidays, you will spend a full day sightseeing, followed by a full day at leisure to see the sights that interest you most. We have touring holidays which provide you with a comprehensive introduction to a country, such as the Grand Tour of Italy, and tours which visit multiple countries in a particular region, like our Imperial Cities tour or the USA Coast to Coast.

A holiday by rail is the perfect way to experience touring holidays. On a train, you can sit back, relax and let the scenery pass by the window, arriving in the heart of your next destination, refreshed and ready to explore the many new sights and attractions. A touring holiday by train allows you to see more of each region or country than would otherwise be possible; you will be able to see the landscape and countryside in between each town or city through the window of the train, while enjoying a drink on board, chatting to your neighbour, reading a book or doing a crossword. Each of our touring holidays includes the services of an experienced Tour Manager who will guide you along the way and take care of the important logistical arrangements.

Grand Tour of America
12/Jun
K J Henocq
5 stars
“A fantastic trip full of fun with a good group of people . We were looked after very well by our manager. We would recommend booking a cabin on the 2 overnight train journeys, especially as our first journey from Grand Junction to Chicago was long. There were stations where we had time to get off the train to exercise for a short time.

Grand Tour of South Africa
10/Jun
Ian Barnicoat
5 stars
“A tour with quite a few surprises and opportunities to see the reality of South Africa regaining its tourism mojo. The introduction tour set the tone of living in South Africa. Johan Vos laid the foundation for the train tour. All the planned off train excursions took place but not always to the original programme. The train itself was very well appointed with nothing to much trouble. The Cape Town city personal experience was enlightening and complemented the pre-planned excursions. The hotel made an excellent base to explore the locale. A value for money experience.
