Winter & Spring

Discover holiday magic on a winter or spring escape, and experience the world during some of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As snowflakes drop on rugged mountain peaks and glistening rivers freeze over into cool ice, many countries in Europe turn into winter wonderlands. Our winter rail journeys take you to some of the most picturesque areas in Europe, from the mountains and glaciers of Switzerland to the rivers and castles of Germany. With pure white snow crunching underfoot and a crisp and still atmosphere, it's hard not to become enchanted during winter.

Our spring rail journeys take you to the heart of some beautiful destinations as well as offering the chance to indulge in some unique cultural celebrations, like immersing yourself in world of colourful flora at Keukenhof Gardens.

“The Glacier Express package was a great holiday. Our Tour Manager, John Grimwade, made sure that we caught the right train at the right time and sat in the right seats! The mountain scenery from the Glacier and Bernina Express trains was wonderful, and viewing the world from the snowy peaks (accessed via funiculars and cable cars) was exhilarating. The hotels were very warm and comfortable with good food and friendly staff. My only suggestion would be to shorten the day on which we took the Glacier Express, as the trip back to the hotel after the Express ride, though interesting, was very long and tiring. All in all an enjoyable trip.

“The tour was exactly what we expected, with the Tour Manager Charles giving us enough information to decide what to do on our free days. Great bunch of similar minded guests on tour, with some 'interesting' local food and a fantastic fondue in Lucerne with another couple.

“A well organized trip with an exceptional tour manager. Plenty of interesting places to see along with amazing scenery. Hotels stays were very comfortable excluding the Murcure in Edinburgh. Several issues with the lift and plumbing. The walk from the station was prolonged and difficult. Otherwise a fantastic trip and thoroughly enjoyed.

“This would have been 5 stars but for the following. 1.Disappointment being changed from Strasbourg to Mulhouse. Mulhouse was attractive and the hotel very good but the journey was too long,we arrived too late to see anything and had to leave next morning just as the market was opening. 2. The group was 34 in number(much too big),our guide was very good but many struggled to keep up. 3. Tiefencastel, The hotel was clean,very warm and comfortable,but a bit stingy on the bathroom products(one small sachet of body wash each) and packed lunches (considering one day was Christmas Day).And all inclusive is perhaps a description that stretches a point! It”s only at tiefencastel and that is limited to while you are eating. 4. Communication is sometimes muddled by receiving some messages from Great Rail, a sister company 5,We paid for our luggage to be transported to Tiefencastel,but a week before departure were notified that the company (Sherpr) knew nothing about it .RD has reimbursed our money.Luggage on trains can be problematic. 6.Otherwise,brilliant holiday. Christmas day,snow,good company,treasured memories……..

The Netherlands in Springtime

Mr Michael Ventress

“An excellent tour but for one thing. You use public transport between Delft and Amsterdam. All the return trains from Amsterdam back to Rotterdam were cancelled leaving our group of 36 elderly people stranded. We had to pay from our own pockets taxi fares ((40 euros) to get back to Delft. Maybe better if you used private transport.
