Train & rail tours

Journey through some of the most spectacular scenery the world has to offer with our selection of memorable rail tours. We cover all of the great rail tours, from Japan’s futuristic Bullet train that travels at 300km an hour through a magical world of contrasts to the more leisurely old world romance of a Golden Pass tour between Lucerne and Monteux, enjoying stunning panoramic views of the scenic beauty that inspired Byron and Rousseau.

The Rocky Mountaineer is another one of the world’s great rail tours. This famous daylight train trip winds past the towering, snow-capped peaks, raging rivers and spectacular forests of the Rockies; home to elk, black bears and coyotes.

Often likened to a 5-star hotel on wheels, our Blue Train tours are the ultimate luxury rail experience. On South Africa’s answer to the Orient Express, you will be waited on hand and foot as the Blue Train traverses the 1,600km route between Pretoria and Cape Town, passing breathtaking countryside.

And then there is North America; the Ocean Train crosses the unspoiled wilderness of New Brunswick, with its gentle green valleys and colourful fishing villages, whilst the City of New Orleans train runs between Chicago and New Orleans- taking a delightfully nostalgic ride through America’s musical heritage. Our California rail tours travel through lush wine country and redwood-forested mountains.

We have the classic scenic rail tours that Europe is famous for; the Golden Pass, the Bernina Express and the Gornergrat Bahn with its winding ascent from the picturesque resort of Zermattto the mighty Gornergrat glacier.

India offers an opportunity to ride in the picturesque wooden carriages of the Ooty Toy Train through the breathtaking Nilgiri Mountains to the tranquil hill station of Ooty, a green oasis away from the summer heat. Take one of our rail tours throughTunisia’s dramatic desert landscapes and towering walls of red rock on the legendary Red Lizard train, built in the late 19th century, to transport phosphate deposits.
