Your holiday, your choice – you are in control with GRJ independent. Choose your hotel, decide your manner of travel, pick your excursions as we help you create a customised tour tailored to your own independent needs, discovering the parts of your destination you truly wish to see. We at GRJ independent firmly believe there is nothing quite like travelling by rail to your chosen destination. Nothing quite matches the comfort, romance and timeless style of sitting back in your seat and watching the spectacular world go by, stopping in beautiful stations and reaching places no other transport can.

With your own tailor-made holiday, you can choose whether to travel to your starting destination by taking a flight or travelling by rail. While we truly love the sophisticated rail travel, we can appreciate that flying can save time, which can be spent making the most of your destination. As such, we offer the option to fly to or from your start or end point.
