If you thought that romantic, old-fashioned train journeys had disappeared into history, think again. Our highly experienced specialists have travelled the globe to bring you classic train journeys through stunning scenery, all in total luxury.

We have sent clients on a journey through South East Asia’s Colonial past about the ever-sophisticated Oriental Express. Starting in Singapore, passing through Malaysia into Laos, via Thailand and the River Kwai. Our clients have travelled on a state-of-the-art train across the Tibetan Plateau past snowcapped Himalayan peaks.

Some of the best train journeys are in India, offering an evocative reminder of the Raj-era. While few compare to Sri Lanka, where your train weaves between rolling misty hills and old colonial tea plantations.
