Grand Tours

Be they multi-center breaks or cross continent journeys, Grand Tours are the trip of a lifetime. Some tours favour breadth, covering vast tracts of land across a wide region, while others focus on more detailed explorations of smaller areas. We offer both types from the longest railroad line in the world, to music-centric tours of the USA's Deep South.

The traditional Grand Tours became a trend in Britain around the seventeenth century but was the preserve of the super rich. With the introduction of train travel the Tour became open to the upper middle classes. Unfortunately the number of people taking the Grand Tour has declined in recent years as more and more young people are taking gap years in exotic locations rather than learning more about their own part of the world. In honour of the original Grand Tour we have compiled a selection of train journeys which are in keeping with the ideals of education and enlightenment as well as reflecting the make up of the modern world.

“A well organised experience. You leave everything to the tour manager. Just turn up when they say. Australia is a lovely country to visit.

India's Golden Triangle

“First time with Great Rail Journey as my usual single provider could only get me to Shimla as an add on and on my own. Have no interest in going to Rathambore for the tigers as I can see them at Chessington. Taj Mahal has been on a 50 year To Do list. Face timed with an Indian gentleman with his wife and 6 week old son. She was delighted when I came on the phone with a Namaste.

“wonderful vacation, excellent tour manager. good variety of trips.
Andalucian Parador Experience
Anonymous
“Generally a good vacation as expected as frequent customers of Great Rail. But - one aspect of the on-line details on GR's website and their itinerary booklet was misleading: "On arrival, we take a guided tour of the city's main attractions, including the famous 8th century Mezquita or Mosque, and the sprawling Juderia - Cordoba's Jewish Quarter." The part "......including the famous 8th century Mezquita ......." is incorrect as it was not included. We had to pay an extra €10 per head (total €40 for the four of us) for this.
