Discover our rail journeys

Take in all of the must-see sights, and discover routes less travelled on our small group train holidays. Watch the world go by as you whizz along the tracks and get away from the main tourist trails to discover remote destinations under the expert guidance of your local tour leader.

Travel the length of India via its extensive rail network, step back in time with a trip on Russia’s Red Arrow Train from Moscow to St Petersburg, or sit back and enjoy spectacular views of deep gorges, towering canyons and snow-capped mountains on one of Europe’s most scenic rail routes from Podgorica to Belgrade. 

To experience cutting edge railway technology, climb aboard Japan’s super-fast ‘bullet train’ or slow things down with a leisurely trip through the vast sweeping plains of the Kazakh Steppe. Get to know the locals on a sleeper train as you travel through the night from Lviv to Kyiv in Ukraine and explore the Imperial Cities of Morocco using the country’s efficient rail services.
