Great Rail Journeys has teamed up with Amtrak Vacations to launch a range of independent rail holidays across the USA under its tailor-made rail holiday brand GRJ Independent.
This product range allows travellers to visit multiple cities in USA, connecting via the Amtrak rail network.
There are more than 40 individual holiday itineraries with prices ranging from £1,370 per person for the Boston & Chicago Discovery tour to £3,255 per person for the Great American – Northern Adventure tour.
Tours range from five days on the New York City & Washington DC leading in at £1,480 per person to 17 days on the Great American Southern Trail leading in at £3,195 per person. Daily touring prices start at £160 per person on the iconic 16 day tour Route 66 By Rail.
Packages can be bought off the shelf or tailor-made to specific needs. All holidays include flights, hotel accommodation, Amtrak rail tickets and city sightseeing passes.
Alex Roberts, sales and marketing director, Great Rail Journeys Ltd said: “The Amtrak rail network is one of the most extensive in the world. Trains are comfortable, frequent and good value for money. Often overlooked as a method of travelling around America, we believe that "by train" is the best way to see the States. Customers can easily connect more than one city in a single holiday and travelling by train allows you to experience the real America and its people in a relaxed comfortable and fun environment".
