From the moment you step aboard you travel back to a forgotten time when to travel by rail was a journey met with anticipation and excitement. Luxury trains carrying guests through spectacular scenery in private suites, dining in lavish restaurants and exchanging stories with other travelers as they are carried from city to city, country to country in total opulence. Now is the time to re-live that era as the luxury trains are back on track and are once again offering memories that will last a lifetime.
Journey through the capitals of Eastern Europe, the mountains of Asia or the wilderness of Africa. Travel Masters can arrange the ultimate luxury rail journey for you on any of these famous trains and help you build your next holiday around one or more of these great rail journeys.
Nowadays coach touring comes in many shapes and sizes. So what do you get on a coach tour today? Most importantly – no driving stress. When you join your tour, the driver takes over, packing your suitcases safely, while you relax in your seat. You get to experience exactly what is in the brochure – orchestrated by people who do it regularly and know exactly the most effective way to enjoy the destinations. Your guide’s connections with the locals automatically optimises experiences to your advantage.
A coach is not a bus. A typical modern coach has double-glazed windows, air conditioning and reclining seats for extra comfort. It rides on air suspension, cosseting its passengers. The driver has similar benefits to a luxury car – traction control, anti-lock brakes and even electronic stability control. This means you can doze or admire the passing scenery, chat to new-found friends or partners, maybe sip on a coffee and simply relax. And when you reach your destination you will be dropped off at the door of your hotel and your luggage is unloaded for you, meaning you can go straight to your room or the bar, without any worry! In short, these are perfect ingredients for a quality holiday. The relaxation and enjoyment of touring with panoramic views gives you the feel that you are part of the territory you are visiting. Coaches are much less restricted than a train or cruise ship on where it can travel. Smaller numbers on a coach means more flexibility, less security issues, no long queues for meals.
By far the most popular routes feature the lifestyle and culture of Europe, particularly the Mediterranean region; however exotic destinations such as Asia, South America and Africa are now becoming more accessible by coach. Closer to home, New Zealand and Australia continue to gain popularity as destinations best experienced by coach.
These days many tours offer significantly enhanced diversity in their itineraries by featuring sectors of the journey perhaps on trains or a day cruise to enhance the overall experience of the destination. Opportunities for hot air ballooning, helicopter rides, special regional cuisines in cultural or historic settings provide breadth to the holiday. Gone are the days when coach travel meant compressing as many stops as possible into a given duration. Most tours now offer a more leisurely pace; often including two and three night stays at highlight locations throughout your itinerary.
