Great Rail Journeys has launched its new 'Winter, Christmas & New Year' brochure for 2014/2015, featuring a selection of winter, Christmas and New Year holidays and Christmas Markets, as well as special event tours by rail including three new tours to the US and Russia.

The three new tours include ‘Southern States and the Everglades’, ‘New York and Vermont Christmas or New Year’ and ‘A Russian Tsar’s New Year Ball’ tours.

As an example, clients can celebrate New Year by taking a trip through Russia's history and heritage and visiting iconic attractions such as the Kremlin and the Hermitage, before marking the New Year itself with a gala ball in an ornate Tsar's palace on ‘A Russian Tsar’s New Year Ball’ tour. The six-day adventure leads in at £1,995 per person and includes scheduled flights; standard class rail travel; five nights' hotel accommodation with breakfast; five dinners; and a selection of tours and excursions including a guided tour of Moscow, a visit and entrance to the Kremlin, an excursion to the Hermitage in St Petersburg and a sightseeing tour of St Petersburg.

Overall prices for the new brochure lead in at £265 for a four-day ‘Bath & Bristol Christmas Markets’ tour.
