Our hotels are chosen carefully, often 3 or 4 star, according to local ratings.
The occasional motor-coach transfers are carried out by reliable local operators who conform to all the mandatory safety and security regulations in their country.
The train journeys are entrusted to rail companies that are either national operators or private local operators. In all cases the rail companies have obtained the mandatory security certificates and running authorisations for the journey.
An incredible journey, learning about another culture...fabulous scenery
