SMALL GROUPS AS STANDARD
Maximum Group Size of 25

Premium Small Group Tours

To enhance your holiday experience, all our European and UK tours are now limited to just 25 people. This means you'll enjoy more unique excursions and stay at hotels a larger group wouldn't be able to. You'll also get to spend more time with your Tour Manager, benefitting from their experience and passion for travel as you explore with new friends.

Harder Kulm look-out point

Enhanced, Experience-led Itineraries

We know the best holidays are filled with immersive experiences that allow you to soak in the culture of your destination. With a smaller group, we can include excursions that not every tourist gets to enjoy. Explore the Vatican after hours on a private tour, go truffle hunting in Umbria or sip wines cultivated on the fertile slopes of Europe's most active volcano.

Experience Life as a Local

There's no better way to explore than with a local. They know all the best stories about their hometown, as well as the hidden nooks and crannies most people would miss on their own or in a larger group. Our local tour guides bring history to life right before your eyes, their passion, knowledge and people skills making for a truly engaging experience.

Small groups, winners year after year

Your feedback is essential in making our holidays even better, and one thing you were sure about was that less is more. Smaller group sizes have been successful year after year and are just as sociable an experience, if not more so, than if there were more people. You'll get more one on one time with your Tour Manager and find it easier to get to know your group.

Discover why premium small group tours are so rewarding

The best of both worlds, in a smaller group, you'll have a Tour Manager looking out for you throughout your holiday, just like our larger groups would, while also getting extra time to benefit from their hands-on expertise. You'll get a more in-depth insight into the cultures and traditions of the places you visit with locally-led tours that everyone can get involved in, excursions to sites not big enough for larger groups, and accommodation at unique or boutique hotels. There'll also be the chance to explore your way, with a more sedate pace set for viewing the attractions. On trains, it'll be easier to get a window seat and admire the views, while you and your new friends will be able to stay together yet still socially distance.

Mr R Yates
5 stars
“Very professionally managed in a friendly way. All hotels were of a high standard, particularly in Vienna where the 4pm tea was an opportunity to review the day with travelling companions. The Prague hotel was near the castle rather than the town but there was a convenient tram service (free for seniors) and also a funicular railway from the monastery gardens next door. The monastery gardens also included a restaurant of high quality. City tours were very informative. Luggage transfer from Vienna onwards worked well.

“A superb short break. Everything worked like clockwork, our tour manager, Nick, was available throughout, and nothing was too much trouble for him. The hotel and its staff were of a very high standard, as were our coach drivers and their vehicles. We would recommend Great Rail to anyone.
