Great Value – Great Sights: All of the tours cover many iconic sights, are very comprehensive and cut no corners, while still representing great value.

Experienced Tour Guide: With all our rail based group tours, there is the benefit of an experienced tour guide to take the worry out of your holiday and to make your journey as informative as possible. This means that you will not only take in the grandeur of the country, you will also be educated on the history of the area.

Home Pick Up and Drop Off: We have also included a home pick up, plus all flights and transfers, so that all you have to do is wait at home or your pre arranged departure point and we will drop you right back there on return.

Gold Service Includes Everything:  On the train section of your tour, you will be travelling in Great Southern Railway’s Gold Sleeper service. This is a high quality level of cabin at a reasonable price and includes all meals. As an added bonus the Gold Service passenger fare now includes all food & beverages plus off train tours.

Quality Accommodation Throughout: The hotel accommodation has been selected to provide a good balance of quality, location and budget to make your holiday as comfortable as possible.

Must See Sightseeing: The included touring options are operated by locals in the region you visit and have been carefully selected to take in the “must see” sights of the region so that you can experience all you can within the time frame allowed.

Experience Counts: After many years of experience in providing rail tours to our clients, and acting on feedback, you can be assured that all possible details have been catered for to make these tours the best value for money we can offer.

Limited Numbers – Book Early:  We only have a limited number of seats on each tour which in most cases can’t be increased and then if we can get extra seats, there may be extra costs involved.  So make sure you book as early as possible so you don’t miss out.

Tour Booklet & Itineraries: Please call us for a full tour booklet or an individual flyer on each tour, which gives a detailed day to day itinerary. You can also find full tour itineraries on our Facebook site as they become available (so like us and get notifications).
