To paraphrase author Agatha Christie: To take train travel holidays is to see life. We at Coop Travel promise you that our train tours – whether by Orient Express or any other route – are anything but murder.
Our escorted rail travel holidays give you time to relax and take in the beautiful European scenery, as you speed towards Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt, Prague or any one of a hundred other fascinating cities. Our European train tours begin and end in the UK, with no need to worry about long check-in queues at the airport, or interminably dull and lengthy car journeys. You see far more from the carriage of a train than you ever could by road or air, and since the only way you can “drive” through the Channel Tunnel is on board Le Shuttle anyway, why not simply book one of our rail holidays instead?
European train holidays offer a speedy, eco-friendly and cost-effective way to see some of the finest sights in Europe. Not just major cities like Venice, Amsterdam and Berlin, but pretty alpine villages, churches and fairytale castles too. Our train holidays range from door-to-door Eurostar jaunts to Disneyland Paris, to leisurely tours of Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Apart from one-day excursions, our escorted train tours are inclusive of travel, accommodation, meals and sightseeing excursions, with everything geared towards comfort and value.
Eurostar and its European equivalents are a far cry from the overcrowded vehicles British commuters use. Clean, fast and efficient, you are whisked through the Eurotunnel from Ashford or London St Pancras International to Paris, Lille or Brussels, where high-speed rail links take you on the next leg of your journey.
For a taste of rail travel the way A. Christie immortalised it, book one of our Orient Express holidays and you can be escorted from London to Venice in 1930s style and elegance. If you’re planning a winter sports break in the French Alps, why not take the easy route through the Channel Tunnel, via the Eurostar Ski Train? We at Coop Travel have plenty of options available.
