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.

“Overall very good. Warning of steep walk from hotel to station would have been useful. Bernina Express much overrated - local trains better. Warning Switzerland is dead in May would also have been good. Tour guide well organised and very pleasant but could not give much advice on rest day activities as he had not been to this area before. Some scheduled transfer times were overambitious, and it would be a more pleasant experience if there were fewer transfers between the French overnight stops and the Swiss destination.

“Our tour manager Gareth was the best ever. Hotel was good but breakfast arrangements were a muddle with ineffectual and sometimes gruff waitresses. Some of the daytrips were too rushed and not enough time at some locations'
