Great Rail Suggestions For Last Minute Getaways

For clients still looking to get away in 2015, Great Rail Journeys still has a few places left on some of their popular escorted holidays in the UK and Europe. Destinations include Yorkshire and the Lake District, Lake Garda, Puglia or Tuscany in Italy, Andalucia and the grand Imperial cities of Vienna, Budapest and Berlin.

For example, there is limited availability in September and October 2015 on a 10 day Simply Lake Garda trip. Travelling by train from St Pancras, tour highlights include an overnight in Paris, excursions to Sirmione, Venice and Verona, Isola del Garda by boat and an overnight in Strasbourg. Accommodation is in a three or four star hotel on the shores of Lake Garda at Desenzano. Prices start from 1195 and include rail travel, transfers, accommodation with breakfast and most evening meals, services of a Tour Manager with a full programme of excursions, guided tours and sightseeing.

Prices in the UK start from 385 for a five day Torquay & The Eden Project escorted rail tour. Four breakfasts and four dinners are included and one highlight is a trip on the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway along the scenic Devon coastline and the tranquil River Dart to Kingswear. Passengers then cross the Dart Estuary by ferry on the short journey to Dartmouth to take a cruise up the river to Totnes.
