Bulgaria by steam… and in royal style

Created: 11 January 2017

Brimming with beautiful scenery, fascinating cultural sites and characterful cities, towns and villages, Bulgaria is particularly intriguing when explored from the comfortable of a privately chartered steam train. This new nine-day escorted tour does just that, using historic carriages from the Royal Train of King Boris III for several of its journeys. Departing 11 May, Bulgaria by Steam costs from £3,750 pp (two sharing) including flights (London Heathrow), eight nights’ B&B, eight dinners, all rail journeys and excursions as per the itinerary, and the services of a tour leader from London and throughout the tour.
