Bavaria & Oberammergau
29 Sep 2022
Philip Dominic
5 stars
“Well organised and good variety of tours and experiences. Obviously the Passion Play was a highlight. We wouldn’t have considered Bavaria we’re or not for the play feature. We’d recommend this area spine as it was so beautiful, clean, picturesque and beautiful.

Travelling with Rail Discoveries

Each of our special interest breaks has been carefully tailored around specific events or activities to give guests an incredible experience. The excursions included in the tours are chosen to reflect the theme of the holiday, whilst free days are often incorporated into our special interest tours to give guests the opportunity to revisit their favourite places or to explore something new. All accommodation and travel is included in the price of the holiday, as well as a selection of meals and excursions.

Travelling to your destination by train allows the journey to become an enjoyable part of our special interest tours, as guests can sit back and relax whilst beautiful landscapes roll past the window. From the moment you step on the first train to when you depart after your journey home, one of our professional and experienced Tour Managers accompanies the holiday ensuring everything goes to plan. Your Tour Manager takes care of things such as checking into hotels and knowing the correct platform from where to catch the next train. You can enjoy complete peace of mind on our special interest holidays from the moment you leave your home.
