Classic Rail Journeys & Escorted Rail Tours

Classic rail journeys are quintessential adventures. From the beaches of Cape Town to the snowbound peak of Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps our flagship tours combine the luxury of a great rail vacation with the excitement of global travel and have proven themselves favourites with our customers year after year. Our classic rail journeys section covers a broad selection of our favourite tours but for longer epic adventures see our Grand Tours section.

One of the things that makes rail travel so unique, so romantic and so fascinating is the long history behind railroads and trains. A myriad of stories and tales, both fictional and non-fictional give certain trains and rail routes an almost legendary status in our eyes, making these tours truly something to remember. From the dizzying heights of Swiss railroads to the Canadian Rocky Mountaineer, classic rail journeys are found across the globe, and our Great Rail Journeys' catalogue feature a wide selection combining our excellent escorted experience with the beauty of a classic railroad trip.

These classic tours are our favourites simply because of how they take the brilliance of a rail vacation and apply it to some of the most beautiful and most memorable locations in the world. We love how they embellish the charm of the Italian coasts, how they showcase the magic of the South American Andes and how they uncover the dramatic wilderness of South Africa. We love how they bring out the magnificent colors of India, how they explore the stunning landscapes of Australia and how they trundle up the Norwegian fjords. Most of all, we love them for the longevity of the memories they produce and how the experiences, excursions and destinations will always be remembered.

Take a look at our classic rail journeys selection below which features rail experiences around the world, and enjoy discovering your next once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

“This was an absolutely brilliant tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of some early morning starts and late evening finishes!
