Rail travel & tours

It's often been said that travel is as much about the journey as the destination – a saying that's especially apt when it comes to our collection of great railway journeys of the world. Sure, you can fly across Europe in a matter of hours. And yes, there are quicker ways to travel between some of Africa's great sights and sounds. But as you step on board a train, you can look forward to seeing these wonders in an entirely different way.

Landscapes unfolding before you like a live-action guide book. Sunrises over mountains and sunsets over the sea, all in a day. The thrill of waking up somewhere completely new. And the romance of travelling as people did centuries ago, in the 'golden era' of rail. It's all part of the magic when it comes to rail tours. 

Amazing train rides feature in all the great train journeys that we offer, whether as the focus of the holiday or as a memorable couple of days within a longer escorted tour. There are tried-and-tested classic train journeys, like South Africa’s majestic Rovos Rail and Canada’s glamorous Rocky Mountaineer; scenic rides through the Swiss mountains on traditional cogwheel and rack railways; and slick, high-speed journeys across Japan and China. You could even follow a route through the stunning Peruvian countryside on the Titicaca Train. All you have to do is choose which one of our guided train tours to do next – all aboard!
