                      Who we are
                      The specialist rail travel agency :
                      The European travel agency 100% dedicated to rail travel

                      Discovery trains, the specialist train travel agency

                      Since 2007, Discovery Trains has been offering you the chance to discover the world by train. Founded in Paris by Simon Stone, a British man with a passion for rail travel, our agency has been working for over 15 years to help you discover the world by rail. Originally a European train travel agency, Discovery Trains has gradually extended its offer to the five continents: today we offer a wide range of organised train trips in Europe, as well as in the rest of the world.

                      Train travel: environmentally friendly and gentle

                      Rail travel has become increasingly popular. Its ecological virtues are undisputed: a train journey in Europe is said to be 23 times less polluting than its equivalent by air, a quality that is increasingly appreciated. Secondly, it seems that the post-covid world has begun to value modes of travel that are favourable to rail travel. There is more interest than before in long, gentle journeys. Some of our train journeys in Central Asia last up to 15 days. In all cases, a travel agency specialising in rail travel offers a gradual approach to destinations and landscapes. It's no longer a question of "consuming" your journey, but of experiencing it intensely from departure to arrival.

                      Train travel: the role of a specialist

                      Today, many travel agencies are beginning to take an interest in the world of trains. But genuine travel agencies specialising in trains are rare in Europe. And the reason is simple: rail travel is not always easy to organise. Unlike other modes of transport, train travel requires a real knowledge of destinations, stations, connections and even the trains themselves.

                      That's why you'll find our advisors invaluable: they're not just going to offer you train tickets and hotels. They are enthusiasts, some of whom have been travelling the world's railways for years, testing out historic train tours, night trains in Europe, panoramic trains in Switzerland, steam trains in Scotland and the world's most beautiful luxury trains.

                      Your luxury train tour

                      For your luxury train tour or train cruise, we will show you the differences between a simple private train, which is a remarkable sleeper train, and the real luxury trains, mythical trains in the spirit of the Orient Express.  We'll point you in the direction of the best train companies. Our specialist rail travel advice will help you choose your compartment and the best time to travel or book. Advice and experience are the strengths of a specialist train travel agency.
