Rail Journeys

Discover the World by Train


With a constant panorama of countryside and cityscapes, travelling by rail can make a truly memorable part of your holiday, often carrying you across landscapes inaccessible by any other form of transport. We're pleased to be able to offer you a range of tours where we've replaced the majority of coach journeys with trains along iconic railways, giving a fresh choice and outlook on travel. Glide along smooth railroads and discover magnificent mountain scenery on our Glacier Express tour through Switzerland, marvel at the breathtaking landscapes of the Gotthard Pass en-route to Italy, embark on an adventure through Rajasthan's rich heritage on a Royal Indian Odyssey or experience the true flavours of Vietnam and Cambodia on a magical tour that combines intertwined histories with delicious, exotic cuisines and awe-inducing scenery.
