Our specialists have ridden the rails throughout the world. We've crossed the Red Centre of Australia on the Ghan and the vast wilds of Africa on the luxurious Blue Train, and experienced Japan's world-class rail network aboard the super-sleek bullet trains. If you’d like to make a train journey part of a wider trip, or plan a vacation that centres on train travel, we can suggest options for the country you want to visit, or recommend countries where we’ve personally experienced the journey and know it’s well worth taking.
