Treyn, the escorted rail specialist, and sister brand to Great Rail Journeys, has launched European ‘fly:rail’ tours, designed to appeal to customers who wish to experience its tours, but who don’t always have the time to make the journey to the destinations travel by rail. Each of Treyn’s new ‘fly:rail’ tours continue to include the benefit of a tour manager escorting the tour from London, Gatwick, as well as including, where possible, rail travel in and around the main rail tour destination.
Treyn still believes that travelling around Europe by train is the best way to experience the region, and its new ‘fly:rail’ tours include journeys on the finest trains, from efficient high-speed trains in Andalucia to lines that are widely regarded as attractions themselves, such as Switzerland’s Bernina Express.
‘Fly:rail’ destinations include Andalucia, Italy and Central Europe and there are six tours to choose from: ‘Treasures of Andalucia’, ‘Imperial Capital Cities’, ‘Classical Italy’, ‘Sorrento & Pompeii’, ‘Lake Garda, Venice and Verona’ and ‘Lake Como & The Bernina Express’.
Treyn’s ‘fly:rail’ tours start from £745 per person for the seven day ‘Lake Como & The Bernina Express’ tour, which includes return flights from London to Milan, rail and coach travel in Italy and Switzerland, six nights’ hotel accommodation with breakfast and dinner each day, excursion to Villa Carlotta and Bellagio, journey on the Bernina Express between St Moritz and Tirano, excursion to Milan including a guided walking tour, visit to the Villa del Balbianello and the services of a tour manager. Departures: 30 April; 21, 28 May; 4,18,25 June; 6, 21, 28 September 2014.
