Escorted Tours and Independent Vacations
With a Rail Experience

Some escorted tours and independent vacations feature a train component. It might be a multi-day rail journey that's built into a longer tour itinerary or an excursion that lasts just a few hours. In Australia, for example, you could spend one day and night exploring the Outback on the Ghan as part of an 18-day escorted tour. In Switzerland, travel for one afternoon through the Swiss Alps on the Bernina Express, an engineering marvel and UNESCO World Heritage site. Or, see the United States' Grand Canyon on a daytime excursion aboard its famous train.

Independent vacation packages sometimes use trains as transportation between major cities. You might travel between London and Paris aboard the Eurostar or hop on a train between stays in Rome, Florence and Venice.

The train portion of your vacation is included in the upfront price, along with your accommodations and other transportation. With escorted tours, many meals, guided sightseeing and other activities are also included.
