No need to pick just one
It was an iconic question coined by a little girl during a taco dispute: "Why not choose both". The same question can be asked when it comes to land travel versus sea travel. Your desired holiday needn't be hindered by difficult decisions, when there are plenty of tours available that incorporate both land and sea.
Rail and Cruise adventures deliver the best of both worlds, allowing you to see the picturesque landscapes of a country's inland, before taking you out onto the sparkling ocean to visit neighbouring islands.
Double down on luxury
A Rail and Cruise tour doesn't mean you go from a luxurious cruise liner to a grimy train or vice versa. Both travel services complement each other when it comes to providing refreshing luxury. You can enjoy a sun-soaked pool on the ship, before revelling in generous service while staying in your rail coach.
It's difficult not to be put into a state of utter relaxation after the combination of delicious food, friendly people, picture-perfect surrounds and quality entertainment. Each day brings new adventures and memorable experiences, whether you're aboard a ship or cruising along the countryside in a train.
Get the full view of a country
Some travellers only see the interior of a country while others can only look at its coastline from the bow of a ship. Fortunately, these tours allow you to achieve both points of view, ensuring you finish your holiday having learnt and experienced a lot more than a typical globetrotter.
You can go from gliding along the serene coastline, past hidden bays and unpopulated islets, to venturing deep into the same country's inland areas, stopping off at small townships steeped in fascinating culture and history. All this can be done in the company of sumptuous facilities and friendly guides who ensure you get the most out of your trip.
