Future plans

Some tours have proven popular, they are possibly worth repeating. Others did not run for many reasons, maybe the Covid pandemic disrupted plans or possibly their time had not yet arrived. Listed here are a few great trips that may deserve a bright future, take a look – let us know if they interest you, if you would like to see something similar but different, and when you may like to see them run. Geoff’s Travel Club is yours, I would be delighted to discuss additions or improvements to this list with you, and maybe to welcome you and other club members on board some time in the future.

The Zambezi Explorer
A similar tour ran with great success in 2014, is it time for a repeat?
A holiday in Africa may not be on everyone’s radar right now, but this remains an outstanding small group holiday in a safe and friendly environment, one that you will never forget for all of the right reasons.
Take a look at the programme here.

If this adventure interests you, let us know. It can run for very few guests. If you have any concerns, let’s talk it through!

Britain with Britrail
An excellent hubs and spokes tour for railway travellers. First class rail travel between historic and interesting towns and cities. Shorter local trips by rail to visit interesting places, ride steam trains. This works best for a small group that can use local cabs rather than a tour coach to get around where railways do not go. Relaxed, fun and economical.

Wales by train, steam and diesel
A small country with an impressive collection of narrow-gauge steam railways. Many can be accessed by mainline rail, again with cabs and maybe a minibus or two. Narrow gauge trains easily accessed by train include Welshpool & Llanfair, Vale of Rheidol, Fairbourne, Talyllyn, Ffestiniog, Welsh Highland Heritage and the Welsh Highland Railway.

Ireland
Lovely country, interesting trains and some mainline steam trains. It’s been a while since we visited. Maybe combine this with Wales.

Switzerland
Are there any Travel Club members who have not crossed the Alps with us?

Across Canada by train
Sheelagh and I plan to do this anyway, we would love to have some friends along. Ride VIA Rail between Vancouver and Toronto with some stopovers.
