Description

The Railway Touring Company has a long established reputation for providing an interesting variety of UK Day Trips by Steam Train and tours in the UK, Europe and Worldwide.


Company description
Day Trips by Steam Train start from a number of locations in England & Wales and travel through scenic countryside to places of interest. The trains are specially chartered and each passenger travels in their own reserved seat. Each train offers a choice of seating options. The Premier Dining option is available on most trains for those who have a special occasion to celebrate or just wish to treat themselves to an unforgettable dining experience. UK tours are available for a few days or more than a week in duration. There is no better way to explore our island's countryside than from the comfort of a railway carriage.
Railways often follow routes that provide unrivalled scenery that cannot be viewed in any other way. Travel is normally in daylight with overnight accommodation in quality hotels. Our tours to Europe cover many of the countries of mainland Europe including Scandinavia. Increasingly, some of these tours make use of Eurostar trains to travel from England through the Channel Tunnel, an experience in itself. Many tours make use of specially chartered trains hauled by steam locomotives.
Wherever possible, we make the most of photographic and filming opportunities so that tour participants can capture unique images of their rail tour. World Tours visit countries of the world where travel by train provides opportunities to see sights and visit places not often included in the tour itineraries of others. History, culture, adventure, a plethora of geographical features, social customs and gastronomic delights await those who join our Worldwide tours. Travel by train, often specially chartered and hauled by a steam locomotive, is the means by which we deliver experiences not to be missed and sometimes never to be repeated.

Buxton tour

, more than 6 months ago

I was rang by railway touring company on the 14/01/2014 and was told that i was not on the tourer because i had not emailed them back because of a date change I did email them back and stated that I had no problem with the date change I was then told during the phone conversation that their was nothing they could do as the tour was full even though they have had my money now for months as the date keeps getting changed as they accepted my money the seat that was allocated to me was not theirs to sell as it was already allocated to me and they have broken the contract by selling my allocated seat to someone else I am waiting what arrangements that they are going to make to rectify their complete and utter mess up of this tourer as I have found out that I am not the only one that they have done this to I have had to give them a rating as this message won't go Roger Lowe

I am yet to travel due to leave in 24hrs but no tickets. Now seriously concerned as the station say that I cannot travel on my booking confirmation. The company do not seem to be to bothered and not even answering their phone. i wish I had read the reviews first. Only give them one star by accident

I dont understand the comments here as I have used the RTC for several years and only once was I let down and not their fault either.I will continue to use them as they have kept their prices down unlike other raul tour companies

Disappointed

I have just had a day trip cancelled by The Railway Touring Company...and this is the the third time it has happened. I have given one star only because the member of staff I spoke to on the phone was polite and apologetic.

Avoid RTC!!

, more than 6 months ago

Appalling customer service pre & during trip. Train was delayed with no announcement/reason given. We had paid for table for 2 in Premier & RTC denied any record of this despite us showing an email from them confirming this. We were not the only people seeking out RTC staff on the train who were more concerned with eating the silver service breakfast than dealing with their customers. The only time we saw them was when they were trying to flog raffle tickets. Don't waste your money!
