Rail Tours

Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride by as you travel through spectacular scenery on an escorted rail tour. From the legendary Trans-Siberian Express to Japan’s futuristic Bullet Train, our featured itineraries combine the convenience of escorted touring with the world’s most iconic rail journeys. Travelling by train is a more relaxing (and often more rewarding) way to see a country; instead of zipping around on an aeroplane, you really get a sense of the scale and subtly changing landscapes of your destination. Often the train itself is an integral part of the experience, whether you’re chatting with the locals in the dining car or simply enjoying the comfort of your cosy carriage and watching the world go by.
