Journey Through the United States

America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. Our comprehensive tours offer you multiple ways to experience this vast country aboard many of Amtrak's famous routes.

When should you travel to the United States? With such a vast landscape, that depends on your destination.

“The only thing that we had a problem with was the train ride. The tracks are really bad. The ride was very rough. Hard to navigate and sleep. Beth was great and so was the driver. The group we were with was helpful, friendly and fun to travel with.

Amtrak Tours

Traveling through 46 states and offering access to over 500 Amtrak destinations, America's national passenger rail network, Amtrak, allows you to embark on unforgettable train vacations from coast to coast. The travel packages featuring Amtrak trains are just as diverse as the routes themselves. Experience the beauty of the great American West aboard the Southwest Chief, departing from Chicago and traveling through New Mexico and Arizona. Venture to the country's perennially popular national parks, including Grand Canyon, Glacier and Yellowstone, via the railroad. Amtrak vacations aboard the California Zephyr offer a cross-country expedition from the Midwest to San Francisco. You even have the option to explore the historic and exciting destinations of the East Coast with a train trip aboard Amtrak's Acela or Adirondack. Best of all, you may choose between different travel styles for your Amtrak train trips, including independent and escorted journeys.

If you are looking for a weekend trip, Amtrak getaways are the perfect way to get a taste of a region. These packages last just a few days and include fantastic destinations like Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles and even national parks and Niagara Falls. Another way to experience the wonder of the United States is with a combination cruise and train trip. These tours allow travelers to begin their experience with time aboard an Amtrak train, such as the Coast Starlight, the California Zephyr or the Empire Builder, and later join a cruise ship to explore some of the most scenic waterways in the country. Contact an agent to learn how to make your travel dreams a reality.
