Rail Touring & Iconic Rail Journeys

Celebrating 25 Years of tour excellence

Welcome to the Rail Collection by Wendy Wu Tours

It’s no exaggeration to say that we are entering a new golden age of train travel. High speed rail networks are shrinking the world’s largest nations, new ambitious routes are linking countries, cities and remote regions like never before and luxury and vintage trains are carrying passengers in style on the planet’s most scenic journeys.

Travelling by train must be the most enjoyable and immersive style of travel there is. No waiting in long queues at security and no lengthy transfers to out-of-town airports. Trains are more comfortable with space to move around and stretch your legs, which in turn makes them more social, with opportunities to chat with your fellow passengers. Lastly and perhaps best of all, trains travel through the countries you are visiting, giving you a window into spectacular landscapes and daily life you just can’t get from 35,000ft.

The Rail Collection by Wendy Wu Tours taps into the hottest trend in travel right now showing you the best of the globe on rails.

The amount of rail travel you'll be enjoying varies from tour to tour. You may be exploring a country travelling predominantly by train or perhaps just getting a flavour of how the locals get about with one or two select journeys. We've also included those tours that include a journey on iconic scenic trains like the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada and the USA and luxury journeys like Rovos Rail in Africa. Take a look at the tour description to see how much rail is included on your tour. 

However you choose to travel, you’ll enjoy exquisitely crafted tour itineraries using our 25 years of experience, and will be taken care of every step of the way – we’d love you to come along for the ride.
