Tailor-made luxury rail holidays

Although we suggest itineraries for inspiration, every one of our rail holidays is bespoke. From upgrading your cabin, to adding extra nights in your start or end destination (or adding another destination altogether), your holiday will be tailored to suit you.

If you’re not sure what the options are or what would work best for you, give one of our Trusted Advisers a call. They can let you know details of our luxury rail itineraries, as well as suggesting the hotels and destinations that combine well with each one. You might like to follow up a trip on the Eastern & Oriental Express with a couple of days in Singapore and then a beach holiday in Bali, or perhaps end a romantic trip to the Italian Lakes by journeying back to the UK on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

If you’re thinking of visiting Thailand, a trip on the Eastern & Oriental Express would make an incredible start to your holiday. Board the train in Singapore, then travel through the tropical countryside of Malaysia and southern Thailand, before finishing up in Bangkok.
