Just returned from Discovering Japan tour. Fantastic time, Tour Manager was Lydia Boyd, excellent organiser and lovely personality. Tour was well planned and hotels/porterage very good. Had previously done Golden Triangle and preferred the eating arrangements on that trip with evening meals in hotels included - we got a little weary of trawling round restaurants this time. Would have liked an extra evening towards the end of the holiday as it becomes a bit rushed.

Just came back from the Classic Glacier Express trip to Switzerland. Excellent in practically all respects and our tour manager, Joe Mutch did a tremendous job and struck a perfect balance being authoritative without being authoritarian. You definitely felt looked after but without unnecessary restrictions and indeed we were encouraged on our free days to explore and useful suggestions were offered. The only criticism of the whole trip was that the food in the two hotels outside Switzerland, on the route there and the route back, was a little disappointing. But then both hotels were right opposite the train station so were probably being chosen for other than their culinary proficiency. The food in the hotels in Brig and Chur, on the other hand, was very good.

Just returned from our Jungrau Express holiday in Switzerland. Absolutely fabulous! Our Tour Manager Mark Buxton was excellent, giving support, help and advice where needed without intruding into our holiday. We were encouraged to see that some of our fellow travelers were on their second or third Great Rail holiday and one couple were even on their fourteenth! Off to book our holiday for next year with Great Rail Journeys.

      About Great Rail Journeys

      Great Rail Journeys provides private and small group escorted holidays by rail all around the world.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Providing high class, quality holiday experiences, Great Rail Journeys knows how to craft the perfect itinerary for train enthusiasts. This mode of transport is unique, and Great Rail Journey’s takes full advantage of the more slow paced journey you get on a train. Their tours are specialized, with private excursions available, and high caliber customer service on board and off.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Rail journeys are perfect for large groups and families, but certain packages can also be great for a romantic getaway. Solo travelers are also welcome, but do be aware that a single supplement is charged. If you’re a more independent traveler, rail journeys can be a great way to see the world in safety and comfort. 

      Where Do They Operate?

      They offer exciting rail journeys all over the world, many with specialized focus, such as Christmas Rail tours in Europe. You can also choose from among “Iconic Trains” if you’re a history buff, or train journeys that include safari excursions in India or Africa.

      Why Travel With Them?

      They offer a fully escorted experience, ensuring all you have to do is relax. With a heavy emphasis on responsible tourism, they do their utmost to keep their effect on the surrounding landscape as minimal as possible.
