October 10, 2023

An exclusive journey involving four continents and 13 countries.

With the popularity of luxury rail travel growing, Railbookers is pleased to announce its unique “Around the World by Luxury Train” itinerary. This first-of-its-kind trip will take travellers across the globe in first-class fashion, enjoying the finest accommodations, dining, and sightseeing onboard the world’s most iconic luxury trains. 

Travellers interested in this exclusive itinerary can contact Railbookers today for 2024 departure. For those looking to enjoy a portion of the trip, Railbookers offers several shorter itineraries built around each of the luxury trains and destinations featured in the 80-day voyage.  

Adding onto the excitement surrounding Railbookers’ 2019 “Around the World by Rail” vacation, this journey features trips aboard world-renowned luxury rail like Rovos Rail in South Africa, the Maharajas’ Express through India, Singapore’s Eastern & Oriental Express, Canada’s Rocky Mountaineer, and classic European journeys including the Golden Eagle Danube Express, Belmond Royal Scotsman, and the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.  

“The demand for luxury rail from our customers continues to grow, and in response, we’ve created the ultimate bucket-list trip,” said President & CEO Frank Marini. “As we’ve seen a trend to combine itineraries to include multiple luxury trains, we’ve tailor-made this itinerary along with smaller, customizable itineraries featuring these iconic trains as a highlight of our industry-leading luxury rail collection. Best of all, once the train ride is through, Railbookers takes care of hotel, sightseeing, transfers and more at the destination for a complete one-call solution. We’re thrilled to give our travel advisors and guests an opportunity to see the world right outside their window in total luxury.”  

In between train journeys, Railbookers’ guests will be treated to luxurious hotel accommodations in many of the world’s finest cities. The trip begins in Vancouver and continues in European capitals and charming cities like Budapest, Edinburgh, Florence, London, Paris, Rome, and Venice. Air connections will allow travelers to see Delhi, Mumbai and Istanbul in Asia, as well as Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. The once-in-a-lifetime journey wraps up in Southeast Asia, exploring Singapore and Malaysia. Travelers will make their own international air travel arrangements, while the trip is inclusive of private ground transfers at destinations as well as all sightseeing and activities listed in the itinerary.
