Private Group Tours

Ffestiniog Travel provide travel expertise for numerous interest and travel groups who wish to pursue their hobbies and activities further afield or visit a particular country, event or railway. Numbers can range from small parties of just 5 to up to 30 or more depending on destination. As an escorted tour operator we regularly deal with large groups of travellers requiring block bookings on trains, planes and at hotels to destinations around the world. We have a very busy rail and flight Ticket Only department which allows us to create tailor made tours for groups of all sizes who want to plan their own route, sightseeing venues and departure dates. We can also provide a tour leader if required.

The train is a great way for groups to travel through Europe. We can arrange reserved seating, allowing travellers and groups to travel in a comfortable, sociable atmosphere whilst sitting back and admiring the views. A major benefit of group travel is the ability to arrange private charters for day excursions where possible.

We have particular specialism in arranging holidays for rail enthusiasts who want to explore heritage railways around the world. We also provide a service to wider special interest groups, arranging travel and accommodation for organisations such as geology and music groups, gardening clubs, history and art societies. Most groups have their own tour guides who are experts in their field of interest.

Specialist Tours to Romania

Peles Castle, RomaniaMultiple dates

Variously described as “Europe’s last wilderness” and “Europe’s best kept secret”, Romania is a true gem of a destination. With a rich and varied history, stunning mountain scenery and a rural way of life unchanged for centuries, it has a charm of its own and yet is almost unknown. Amongst its many attractions is Transylvania with its castles and unspoiled forests and mountains, still home to bears, wolves and other rare fauna.
