Austria, Switzerland and The Alps by Rail

The Alps are a huge and striking range of mountains and peaks that extend across several European countries, providing stunning views from snow-peaked mountains to lush green valleys and majestic lakes. Escorted train holidays through the Alps travel to many locations of beauty, with popular and particularly scenic ranges being found in Switzerland, Austria, Spain and on the borders of France and Italy. Some of the most well known sights, and most incredible railways and train journeys, can be experienced when visiting the Alps, such as the Jungfrau Railway and the very famous Glacier Express.

“Great holiday and a lovely tour guide Ken that did an amazing job making sure we was on and off our train’s. Hotels was good and food and packed lunches was very welcoming. Downside was we thought 45 people was to many in one group when some train times was only a few minutes from one train to the next one leaving. Apart from that a totally enjoyable holiday with fabulous views and amazing places.

4 stars
“Lovely places to see/be in, but too much time pressure and stress during travel. Took days to recover. Better for the young/fit. Everyone was very disappointed as the actual Glacier express we were on, being I believe a special extra train due to demand, offered no buffet or refreshments at all, all the way. Much cynical laughter at the lavish videos.
