This section of our website contains details of previous escorted tours we have run and provides you with a comprehensive overview of the many different destinations we visit. The selection includes Christmas Tours which illustrate the great variety and quality of content of our holidays. We cater for both the general tourist who loves travelling by train AND the rail enthusiast who wants the railway journey to be a key part of the holiday.
These tours are currently unavailable as escorted tours, but they may provide inspiration and ideas for those looking to find a personalised Signature rail holiday. We can adapt tours to create tailor-made holidays for couples, families or groups of friends.
The prices for these tours are at the time the tour took place and are now out of date, but they provide a useful cost indication. Please don't hesitate to contact us direct if you wish to discuss any of the tours further.
