Grand Escorted Tours
The ‘Grand Tour’ was the traditional travel of Europe which flourished from 1660 until the advent of large-scale rail transport in the 1840s. We at Ffestiniog Travel believe it is the world’s railways that offer people the chance to experience more modern-day global ‘Grand Tours’. Railways offer a unique gateway to a country’s history, culture and landscape providing a means to discover the world in short holiday-size bursts that are educational, entertaining and relaxing.
Our Grand Rail Tours are designed to appeal to the traveller who wants to explore the world by rail and wants a good mix of culture, leisure, convivial company and comfortable accommodation during the journey. The destinations are the main appeal, but the journey itself is an integral part of the holiday. We hope our selection of ‘Grand Rail Tours’ offers the right mix of railways, destinations and cultural nourishment to tempt the traveller in you.
Choosing to travel by train is not only an environmentally friendly option, but provides the means to cover a large area of a country at ground level in the customary time frame of a holiday. When taking the train to reach your holiday destinations, sit back and enjoy the view and relish in the landscapes the journey delivers.
