Our annual escorted tour programme features nine new tours for you to consider. As a customer based outside the UK you can still join any of the holidays featured in the brochure. We value our overseas customers and will arrange all your transport requirements to enable you to join any of our escorted rail holidays.

You may be tempted to visit us here in the UK and join one of our home-run rail tours. Fittingly for a company with its roots firmly embedded in the Principality, 'Wales: from North to South' takes you through stunning Snowdonia National Park to the capital, Cardiff, with visits to many of the country's famous independent railways, castles and museums along the way. Experience some of the most scenic parts of the English railway network on a 'Railways of the North' tour, visiting three preserved railways and journeying through remote regions of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines. Our 'West Country Wanderings' tour blends rail travel, river cruises and the renowned gardens and stunning scenery of Devon and Cornwall. Or sample Scotland's Highland delights on 'Orcadian 2', - a 14-day rail odyssey riding the spectacular Kyle Line and The Road to the Isles, marvelling at the northern moors en-route to Wick and Orkney, steamer sailing on Loch Katrine and visiting Balmoral Castle.

Our European tours include familiar journeys around Switzerland, a commemorative tour to France to mark the 100th Anniversary of the start of WW1 and, in addition to our annual visits to Romania, we continue exploring the Balkans with our 'Pushing the Boundaries Ė Kosovo, Macedonia & Albania', tour - a fascinating 13-day holiday thatís perfect for travellers seeking a more adventurous experience. A candid online travel blog - giving a flavour of Ffestiniog Travelís recent research trip to the area - can be viewed here.

Further afield we have added some exotic destinations to complement our annual visits to North America and India and they include Vietnam, Eritrea and Mexico.

We produce personalised, bespoke tours designed to meet your requirements whether as an individual, a couple or part of a group. Talk to us about your ideas and our team will work with you to plan your itinerary and you wonít have to commit to anything until you are entirely happy with your own personal, 'signature' tour.
