If you have a clear idea of what your dream break by rail would be, Great Rail Journeys can help you to put together tailor-made luxury holidays.
We have considerable expertise in organising escorted tours by rail, but also recognise that some holidaymakers prefer to travel independently.
You may like the prospect of travelling on your own or could have an idea for a holiday by rail which does not fit into an escorted tour - for example, if you want to enjoy a longer stay in a particular destination.
If that sounds like you, why not see what Great Rail Journeys' Rail Select website has to offer?
The service is designed specifically to help people interested in tailor-made rail holidays.
Using Rail Select will allow you to take advantage of all our experience of booking rail tours and our knowledge of the best hotels close to classic rail routes, meaning designing your tailor-made holiday will be nowhere near as time consuming as if you tried to book each element independently.
Your resulting holiday will give you all the benefits of using the train - such as the ability to see a country's natural beauty while travelling through it and avoiding traffic jams and airport check-in queues - while ensuring you visit only the places you want to enjoy.
Tailor-made European holidays from Rail Select
Europe has a comprehensive rail network connecting many of its major cities, which opens up endless possibilities for tailor-made holidays by train.
What you may be less familiar with is the Alpine railways which will allow you to experience the full splendour of the great mountain range.
As part of tailor-made European holidays we can arrange for you to travel on lines such as the Glacier Express and Golden Pass.
This will ensure you experience the beauty of the Alps and the Swiss lakes, while also having time to explore towns and cities like Montreux, Lucerne, Interlaken and Chur.
If you are hoping to enjoy some sun on your holiday by train, Rail Select can arrange trips to Andalucia, a grand tour of Italy or journeys to the Adriatic coast.
We can also help you to explore a bit further afield by organising tailor-made holidays in Russia, giving you the chance to experience the Trans-Siberian Express or the Zarengold.
Tailor-made holidays in the USA from Rail Select
The USA is a great place to enjoy a holiday by rail, as it has a large number of fascinating cities to explore, together with some stunning landscapes in between.
Travelling by train will allow you to see the Allegheny Mountains, Monument Valley, the plains of Nebraska, the Rocky Mountains and the Grand Canyon, while enjoying the luxury of some classic train journeys.
A number of the express trains from the great age of rail travel still operate and Rail Select can help you to book journeys on the California Zephyr, the Coast Starlight and the Empire Builder as part of tailor-made luxury holidays in the USA.
Team up some memorable rail journeys with stays in top-quality hotels in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco and you could enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
Tailor-made holidays in South Africa with Rail Select
South Africa is another country ideally suited to seeing by rail, thanks to a combination of fascinating places to visit and luxurious train services.
Taking a trip on the Blue Train is sure to make your tailor-made holiday in South Africa a truly memorable experience.
The train runs between Cape Town and Pretoria, and during the journey you will enjoy five-star service, with butlers on hand to deal with your every need.
We can also arrange journeys on Rovos Rail's Pride of Africa - an experience which will take you back in time to the days when rail travel was done in real style.
The train, which runs on a variety of routes across South Africa, include a steam locomotive, sleeping compartments and dining cars restored to their original Edwardian splendour, lounge cars with the feel of a high-end gentlemen's club and a well-equipped observation car to ensure you can see all the natural attractions.
