Train Tours

For a list of all
trains, click here.
Train tours take you back to the golden era of luxury train travel, with dining cars set with fine linen and observation cars offering panoramic views of some of the world's most spectacular landscapes. Trains can travel where cars cannot, so you can marvel at scenic vistas that would otherwise be inaccessible.

On some itineraries, youll stay on board the train overnight. Long after watching the sun fall below the horizon, settle into your own private sleeping stateroom. While you sleep youre carried to the tour's next stop. Other tours utilize the train only for transportation between destinations. When each day's train travel ends, passengers disembark and stay in hand-picked hotels. Classic train tours include the Rocky Mountaineer in the Canadian Rockies, Amtraks trips to Glacier National Park and the Blue Train in South Africa, among others.

Aside from the fully rail-focused train tours on this page, there are also escorted tours and independent vacations that feature a train component. Some might include one or two days on a historic train as part of a longer tour itinerary. Or, a short train ride on a famous railway might be offered as an excursion during one of the day's activities -- the train excursion could last only a few hours or so. Independent vacations often include train transportation between major cities in the package rate. To view escorted tours and independent vacations that include a rail experience, click here.
