Bringing European Destinations to Life
Europe is a beautifully diverse continent, home to the dramatic landscapes of the Scottish Highlands as well as the sun-drenched shores of the Mediterranean. And with train lines connecting much of what's in between, an escorted vacation with Great Rail Journeys offers a relaxing and scenic way of exploring its different countries. Travel with people who share your interests and enjoy similar activities, as we bring to life unique towns and cities from Scandinavia to Sicily, through engrossing excursions, hand-picked hotels, comfortable travel, and meals bursting with local flavor.
Tours are a time for new discoveries and relaxation, and our itineraries perfectly balance excursions to must-see landmarks, tours with local guides who help uncover the secrets of our destinations, authentic food and wine tastings, and free time to sightsee in a way that suits you.
New for 2020, we've introduced a whole host of unique experiences to get you better acquainted with deep-rooted cultures and traditions of the places you visit. Feast on Andalucían specialties while admiring the mystical Alhambra, savour the sounds of a private music recital in the Baroque surrounds of Salzburg's Mirabell Palace, or visit the oldest gelateria in Rome.
