Escorted River Cruises - The Great Rail Way

If you enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people - river cruising may be for you. On most itineraries, you'll visit a new destination each day allowing you to pack in a lot of sightseeing (without have to repack your suitcase). And most ships carry fewer than 200 passengers, making it easy to meet like-minded traveler and perhaps some new friends. With modern ships, gourmet dining, expanded amenities and the ability to navigate narrow waterways, its easy to see why river cruises is such a fast growing category of travel.

On our unique rail & river cruise itineraries, you'll have the opportunity to experience two fantastic modes of transport in one vacation!

River cruising is a great vacation choice if you want to distil the real essence of each destination you visit from the comfort of your floating hotel. And with Great Rail Journeys, you can expect each of our cruises, as well as our fantastic team, to go above and beyond. We'll make sure you have a wonderfully relaxing cruise experience. But how exactly do we make this happen?

Take it easy, you'll be looked after from start to finish

From when you book until the journey home, we'll be right beside you making sure your cruise goes without a hitch. Be reassured by the expert knowledge of our Travel Specialists, enjoy the company and composed nature of your Tour Manager, and get inspired by your on board Cruise Director. We can even arrange luggage transfers directly to and from your home.

One of the biggest stars of any great cruise vacation is often the river itself. Charming banks lined by beautiful scenery, the gentle lull of calm waters and the wonderful variety of sights to see all make the simple act of sailing down the river an experience to remember.

Your vacation, your way

We know that one size fits all doesn't work for tours. When you cruise with Great Rail Journeys, you can make the most of a whole host of personalised options. If it's easier to fly, no problem! Fancy extending your vacation with a pre-cruise tour? Just let us know. Or perhaps you don't want to decide all your plans until you're on board. Excursions are included in the price, but you can explore independently if you like or simply relax on board.

We've also included a choice of sightseeing tours so you can pick the pace best suited to you.
