“This was an excellent Tour in every way. Hotel was spacious and comfortable, the food was delicious and the service prompt and efficient in the dining-room. We would like to compliment our Tour Manager, Cath, on looking after us so well. The tour guide in York was also most informative and interesting. It was a little disappointing that we didn't manage a ride on a steam train, but nevertheless the actual rail journeys we had were great.

“A very enjoyable holiday. The hotel was very good, good room and the food was excellent. The staff could not do enough for us. Having the transport pass and the pass into museum was excellent. Our coach driver was a mind of local information. Apart for one day the weather was dry.

“A thoroughly enjoyable 'taster' tour of the Isles of Scilly. We felt in safe hands with David our Tour Manager and also our Tour Guide, the knowledgable Neil. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay at the excellent Atlantic Hotel.

“Norwich is a lovely City to spend Christmas,hotel was pleasant although not in the most salubrious area unless your a football fan.All the staff were very helpful and friendly, food was very good with plenty of choice,even for a vegetarian !! Ken our holiday guide was excellent doing his best to please quite a large party. I wouldn't consider another rail discoveries holiday at that time of year due to the over crowding ( not your fault) of the trains. Mary Baynes

“Had a great time, food was lovely in all hotels, trips were very organised, we do fancy going on some trips that are abroad with rail discoveries and after the trip we have just been on would definitely book again with rail discoveries. Maggie our tour operator was very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, very enjoyable trip.
