“The parts of the holiday organised by Rail Discoveries was nothing short of fantastic. The tour manager was excellent throughout. Even when something out of the manager's control, late train for example, occured things were quickly put right. The only downside was the hotel in Brig. The accommodation and restaurant was excellent and we could see why Rail Discoveries choose it. But a private party caused a fire alarm just after midnight (excessive use of dry ice apparently) followed by an announcement that the alarm was a test woke everyone up. The function continued till 5.00am despite phone calls to reception and the personal intervention of the tour manager. I doubt if the hotel will be used again but it was the only flaw in an otherwise fantastic holiday.

“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.
