What are some benefits of train travel?

See scenery you wouldn’t otherwise see
Scenic train trips are unlike anything else. They take you through places roads just can't reach. When you travel by train, you’ll see the world from a new angle, as you venture to each new destination.

It’s more comfortable
Travel by train is more spacious, temperature-controlled, and, well, comfortable. Just sit back, enjoy the scenery, and arrive right in the heart of each city.

It’s more eco-friendly
Did you know train travel is the most environmentally friendly way to travel, apart from by bike or by foot? Rail trips emit 75% less greenhouse gas than cars. And in some countries, less than 3% of all transport gas emissions come from trains.

What travelers say about their train tours

Awesome tour!
By 2nd-time traveler Vicki on 05/11/17
Gorgeous views from the train and the food was excellent!
Canadian Rockies by Train
mountainous beauty
By 1st-time traveler Morris on 09/16/19
From start to finish everything was just wonderful. Weather was exceptional as well. Was in the 90's at home so the mountain air was very much welcomed. Would recommend this tour to everyone.
Canadian Rockies by Train
Outstanding journey
By 3rd-time traveler Lewis on 10/05/18
We have traveled a lot but this one was far above any other we have taken. The scenery was outstanding, the train was top of the line as was the service on the train, and everything was well handled. Dave, tour guide, was also the best ever and always ready for whatever.
Canadian Rockies by Train
Japanese Adventure
By 10th-time traveler Suzan
The ride on the bullet train fascinating and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial was sobering and everyone should see it. The village area of Miyajima was nice. We traveled again with friends from a previous tor always great fun!

Train tour FAQs

What should I pack for my train tour?

When you travel by train, we recommend packing a smaller bag along with your regular one. That way, if your luggage has to be stored outside of your seating area, you can still keep what you need as you’re seated.

All of our trips are beautiful—whether you’re cruising through the Alps on Switzerland by Train: Lucerne to Zurich, zooming through a Japanese seaside town via high-speed bullet train on Japan Adventure: Kyoto, the Japanese Alps & Tokyo, or enjoying views of the Rocky Mountains on your way to Banff, Lake Louise & Vancouver.
