"The trains in any country contain the essential paraphernalia of the culture …"
Paul Theroux – The Great Railway Bazaar

"This new venture 'on the rails' comes from a growing interest in unique themed journeys and a desire to share the experiences and knowledge I have gained over the years. I get a buzz from creating captivating itineraries; they open doors to places, products, and people not normally available on 'standard' tours.

Please join me on one of these tours, or perhaps you'd like me to build a personalised itinerary for you. After all, one could argue that there's no better way to see the world than from the window of train."
Scott McGregor
