European Train Tours

Europe by Train

Europe is home to some of the world's most beloved cities and acclaimed travel locales. Your dream may be to stroll the Champs-Elysees in Paris, to make a wish in the Trevi Fountain in Rome, to relax along the Amalfi Coast or to visit any number of big cities, medieval villages and coastal towns that lie in between these destinations. Perhaps you desire to soak in the culture of Eastern Europe's Imperial Cities or to be surrounded by the fairytale scenery of Bavaria. Many tour packages depart from London St. Pancras, giving you an easily accessible starting point for your grand adventures through Europe.

European train tours are a wonderful way to get a closer look at the landscape as you move between cities, thanks to the vast rail network that spans to virtually every country on the continent. As you make your way between destinations aboard local, regional and high-speed trains, such as the Eurostar or TGV, or upon scenic specialty trains, like Switzerland's Glacier Express, relax in your comfortable onboard accommodations and drink in the local scenery, which ranges from coastal passages and lush vineyards to majestic mountains and quaint villages. Select vacations include rail journeys on Europe's famous luxury trains, including the Venice Simplon-Orient Express, the Royal Scotsman and the Golden Eagle Trans Siberian Express.

For an even more unique experience, select an escorted rail and cruise vacation that presents the best of Western Europe and beyond by train and deluxe cruise ship. Sail along the winding waters of the romantic Rhine River, surrounded by castles and dramatic scenery, or along the mighty Danube, which weaves through 10 countries. Like our guided land tours, these combination holidays are thoughtfully designed with packages ranging from just a few nights to upwards of 14 days.
