Luxury Train Journeys

Everyone is familiar with the Orient Express, now known as the Venice Simplon Orient Express, an iconic train that epitomises luxury rail travel. But did you know that this famous train not only journeys from London to Venice, but now offers additional rail routes too. Travel in Edwardian grandeur on the train made famous by an Agatha Christie novel to destinations including Berlin, Vienna, Bucharest, Romania and Istanbul as well as Paris and Venice. Ffestiniog Travel is an agent and can arrange tickets for all Venice Simplon Orient Express journeys direct from London or as part of a Tailor Made package.

We also supply tickets for other luxury train travel companies including Belmond which run day trips on the grand Belmond British Pullman and Belmond Northern Belle throughout the UK, a classic Royal Scotsman tour of Scotland and a Grand Hibernian rail tour in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Further afield Belmond run the magical Hiram Bingham train through Peru that includes a visit to the famous landmark, Machu Picchu. Or travel in extreme comfort on a journey through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand on board the Eastern and Orient Express train.

In India you are spoilt for choice when it comes to sumptuous rail travel. Board the Palace on Wheels, Golden Chariot, Royal Rajasthan on Wheels or the Maharaja’s Express for a range of luxury rail journeys through the Sub-Continent. These journeys contrast wonderfully with Ffestiniog Travel’s Indian Hill Railways escorted tour, but if you would like to combine the two please contact us direct.

For the romantics among you consider the Golden Eagle luxury trains for a winter tour on the Trans-Siberian through Russia, the Arctic Explorer to see the Northern Lights, or travel on the Danube Express through some of Europe’s lesser known, but interesting destinations as part of a luxury Balkans Odyssey tour.

There are lots of options available to enjoy luxury train travel. Take a look at the tours below and contact us to make a booking or to discuss the option of including any of these rail journeys in a Tailor Made holiday – email This email address is being protected from spambots.
