European rail tours beyond the tourist trail
Planning a holiday is always a pleasure, but even more so during the grip of a dismal February. With tangible signs of better weather still weeks away in the UK, what better way to pass the time than by planning a Spring escape?
Rail holiday specialist Ffestiniog Travel has a tempting selection of escorted tours to some of Europe’s lesser-known destinations, all departing in May. Created for travellers keen to explore regions still relatively untouched by large-scale tourism, each itinerary blends relaxing rail journeys with cultural sightseeing, comfortable accommodation and convivial company, as well as ample time to explore independently as required. An experienced tour leader joins the group prior to departure in London and stays throughout the tour, joined by local professional guides to explain the history and traditions, as well as acting as interpreter.
