Great Rail Journeys is the UK's market leading operator of escorted holidays by rail. With over forty-five years experience, there is no-one who understands rail holidays like we do, and with more than 300 adventures to over 40 countries, no-one offers a better choice of holidays by rail. Great Rail Journeys and its sister brands, Rail Discoveries and GRJ Independent, are dedicated to creating quality holiday experiences, and providing customers with high levels of service. The company currently provides holidays for over 65,000 travellers annually. We are proud of our fantastic, inclusive holidays by rail, and we know that our customers love them too - thousands book more than one tour with us, and 90% recommend us to their friends and family. We are held in a higher regard by our customers than many travel companies, even those that are considerably larger. Our customers have voted for us to win a wide range of awards. Recently, we have been announced as the winner for 'Best Rail Holidays Company' in the 2017 British Travel Awards, an award we have now won for three years running. We are also the proud winner of the 2017 Silver Travel Awards in the category of 'Best Rail Holiday Provider'. Over the years we have also received local prizes from the Yorkshire Press, and business prizes from Eurostar. With our recognition from both a range of industry bodies and publicly-voted awards, we are grateful for our success. We are also further inspired and committed to continue providing wonderful, first class holidays by rail that represent fantastic value for money. The company employs over 130 people and is based in York, United Kingdom
