Tour By Rail - Your Ideal Next Vacation
You will experience the perfect balance between vibrant group tour culture and a sense of exclusivity as you travel by rail. In short, it’s the same vibe and people, with a different perspective on the journey. A rail tour lets you connect with the world differently as you embark on a new kind of journey!
“Guided rail travel has given Expat Explore a great opportunity - we are now able to create different routes, and continue our founding principle of Value for Money and Travel Made Possible.”
Travel In Comfort
Enjoy some legroom and the opportunity to get up and explore the train as you are taken from one destination to the next.
More Speed, More Time
Train trips use their own routes and only stop where needed. So, you will have more time to explore your bucket-list sights and destinations.
Guided Rail Tours
Our expert guides will be with you every step of the way. You won’t have to worry about any planning, timing or language barriers.
Tours All-Year Round
What could be better than seeing the snow-covered streets in quaint Swiss towns? Rail tours mean you can explore in any season!
Smaller Group Travel
Whether you’re travelling solo, with family or friends - a rail tour is made for you. Meet like-minded people and make memories as you adventure together.
You See The Unseen
Travel by rail takes you through a country, instead of around it. Your journey is as much part of the tour as the bucket-list sights!

Similar to Expat Explore coach tours, you’re allowed one piece of luggage, weighing no more than 20kgs, along with a small backpack or carry bag as hand luggage. Please do not bring more than one piece of luggage. Importantly, we advise packing as lightly as possible for rail tours as you will be carrying your own luggage between stations and hotels. Please ensure that your suitcases and trolley bags have sturdy wheels. If you are fit enough to carry a large backpack, that is also a good option for rail tours.
Expat Explore will strictly follow all guidelines set out by the ETOA. All staff will receive the recommended training and your health and safety will remain a top priority throughout the tour.
Just like on any other Expat Explore tour, our expert guides will be there for travel days, walking tours and meals. On free days they will be operating optionals - but they will always be there to help you with anything.
You, as the traveller, will always have a choice to join the offered experiences or not. There will also be free time given at each stop and on free days.
Rail travel gives you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery as you travel through destinations and you have the ability to stop and get off in spots that are easily missed.

The railway system in Europe is very well established and with an expert guide, you won’t have any of the hassles you may experience when travelling by yourself.
