An escorted rail tour means you can sit back, relax and let the holiday begin as soon as you board the train. The journey becomes a key element of the holiday and there is no other means of seeing as much of a country’s scenery and landmarks in a short period of time than by rail.
So why not join Ffestiniog Travel and take “one of the finest rail journeys in the world” and Explore Sri Lanka by Rail. This escorted tour departs on 26th February 2016 and during this 12-day holiday you will pass through amazing landscapes aboard chartered journeys on the Viceroy Special and Viceroy II trains, visiting four UNESCO World Heritage sites en route. Enjoy the company of like-minded travellers led by an expert tour leader and experience a holiday to remember, priced from £3,620 per person.
