Imperial Cities by Rail: Vienna, Prague & Berlin
30 Oct 2023
R Kidd
4 stars
“An excellent journey, well organised, giving us a good insight to each city. Our tour leader kept us well-informed and ensured the correct train and bus connections. The local guides for each city were very knowledgeable and clear in their descriptions and gave us good advice about further exploration on our own. The loading and unloading of luggage was tiring and some of the carriages were overcrowded. The accommodation was good, although the Vienna hotel was next to a building site.

“This was our first tour experience and can honestly say it was very good. Once in India it was seemless.Raj our guide was knowledgeable and supportive and took all the stress out of it all so we could relax and enjoy fully. Can honestly say would consider doing it again.

Experience a Grand Tour with Rail Discoveries

Travelling by rail gives you the opportunity to admire the stunning vistas of the continent in comfort. 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.

All of our holidays combine relaxing rail travel with a variety of quality accommodation and exciting excursions. Every grand tour is accompanied by an experienced, courteous and enthusiastic Tour Manager who ensures that everything runs smoothly throughout your holiday. This means that you can relax and enjoy every moment of your time away, never having to plan ahead as everything is already taken care of.

Our holiday itineraries also incorporate free time for you to explore independently or enjoy your hotel's amenities. More information on the individual itineraries of each holiday, including our grand tours can be found on the individual holiday listings above.
