Andrea Bocelli in Berlin...

Both Alan & Kirsty in our office have watched Andrea Bocelli live in the UK and both long to see him abroad too. It is especially frustrating for them as we have been selling tours to watch Andrea Bocelli abroad for a few years now, in Tuscany, Stockholm and now Berlin. In January, Andrea Bocelli will perform at Berlin's famous Berlin’s famous Philharmonie and we are able to offer our clients packages with flights from London and accommodation in the city, along with a city tour included. His forthcoming short tour of Germany promises to include works by Handel, Verdi and Fauré.

This 5 day tour is just £599 per person, including tickets to the concert! We even have access to some ticket upgrades (while stocks last!!).

The flight departs on 6th January 2011. For full details of the tour click here or call us on 01543 258631.

We experience Eurostar's new 'Standard Premier'

For many of our clients, a little extra comfort, service and refreshments are a great way to get their holiday by rail off to a good start. Eurostar have recently re-launched their travelling classes to now include 3 options; Standard, Standard Premier and Standard Business. For leisure travellers we recommend Standard Premier that gives more comfortable seating and complimentary snack and drinks.

On a recent trip through the tunnel to France it was great to be able to experience this service and we can highly recommend it to our clients. The picture shows the meal on offer (cold snack) which was plenty for the short 1 hour 30 minutes trip from Lille back to London's excellent St Pancras station.

Planning a short break or holiday via Eurostar, call us on 0845 003 2210 or 01543 258631 to discuss your requirements. We are now also able to offer a range of rail tours from Great Rail Journeys as well as other rail operators, click here for a few rail tour holiday suggestions from around the world.
