Escorted City Breaks & Sightseeing Tours by Rail

Across Europe and the UK, there's a magnificent wealth of cities to lose yourself in, each brimming with unique culture and unforgettable sights. Join us on an enticing city break and we'll take you to the cultural heart of each city, with carefully-planned itineraries that combine visits to must-see attractions with authentic local experiences, as well as free time to explore in a way that suits you.  

See how historic cities have developed into modern hubs while maintaining their one-of-a-kind charms, or step back in time in ancient cities seemingly unchanged in centuries; the best part of Europe is its rich diversity. Our tours take you to your chosen city in the best way possible, with an efficient and comfortable rail journey that takes you straight into the center of the action - and gives you the chance to admire some of Europe's stunning stations, often landmarks in themselves.

“Great Rail Journeys were faultless throughout, however, on the journey from Brussels to Austria the German railroad 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,
