Summer Tours

Summer is the perfect season in which to explore the sun-kissed beauty of some of Europe's most inspiring and memorable destinations by rail. As temperatures rise and the world bursts with light, warmth and colour, those long summer days are just waiting to be filled with adventures. Breathe in the heady fragrance of wild flowers carried on the warm air as you journey through Switzerland and Germany's Alpine meadows.

Explore with us some of the most picturesque towns and villages of France and Italy where the fruit of olive groves and vineyards that carpet rural hillsides ripen in the sunshine. Whether your perfect summer break entails taking in some of the best festivals, experiencing the freedom of the great outdoors, reclining on a beach or immersing yourself in the history and culture of somewhere new, a summer rail tour with Rail Discoveries promises a host of memorable sights, activities and experiences for everyone.

5 stars
“The tour was great. It gave a great taste of all the heritage railways in Norfolk. The days had just enough things in so it you always had something to do, but you didn't feel rushed at all. Even with covid restrictions, all the things we did were normal enough to enjoy to their fullest. The tour manager was very friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to ensure the tour went smoothly.

Isle of Wight

Graham Douglas
5 stars
“The Isle of Wight remains one of the UK’s unspoilt treasures and has remained so for many years. I first visited in the 1950’s. The only problem is Sandown sea front where there are a number of derelict buildings, but this is the fault of the local council rather than the island. Nevertheless it would be good if something was done about this sooner than later.

5 stars
“Holiday was absolutely great, but the admin lead up to it was far from good - very disappointing. We only knew we were flying back a short time before departure which incurred us in hotel costs which we had not expected. Also telephone calls were not returned to my friend, Mrs Anne Hutchings, by Gary Compton, despite promises via our Tour Manager, Kevin. The four of us who went together are now reluctant to holiday with your company again if this is the way you treat customers. It seems once you have our money there is no further commitment from Human Resources!! However, we are all agreed that Kevin was extremely "on the ball". I would very much appreciate a response from you to this review which I write on behalf of Mrs Watson, Mrs Osborne, Mrs Hutchings and myself, Mrs Bailey-Hague.
