Tours featuring extra special Railtrail opportunities to taste fine food and drink, along with a whiff of steam and some great railway journeys ...
Build up a head of steam, uncovering Scotland's heritage from a different angle. Enjoy the Bo'ness & Kinneil Steam Railway, soar above the canals by boat on the remarkable Falkirk Wheel, cruise Loch Katrine by steamship and steam through the Highlands on the Strathspey Railway on a tour that also features two great distilleries.
The German Tourist Board has been promoting 'Culinary Germany' recently and here is our take on this theme. On the face of it it's a tour of German beers, from Düsseldorf's Altbier to Cologne's rival Kölsch, with Gose, Bockbier, Rotbier and even smoked ale. Yet delve deeper to discover a country with colourful regional differences of taste, language, culture and lifestyle. Prost!
An action packed short-break to St Niklaas in the heart of Flanders, well positioned for our excursions to Bruges, Gent and Antwerp. Bruges is a delight with its pretty canals, squares and belfries. Gent is a similarly beautiful city and we discover it the best way - by boat. In Antwerp, the 'diamond capital', we take a tour on a vintage tram and, of course, we include some steam at Maldegem Steam Centre..
