The advantages of exploring Europe by train on our grand tours also include being able to make the most of your journey, whether that is by reading a book, socialising with your fellow passengers or relaxing in your seat as your train passes breathtaking scenery. Many of our grand tours also feature journeys on famous railways, which offer you the opportunity to witness landscapes that are often inaccessible to everyone but the most experienced of walkers.
