Over the past 26 years of providing unforgettable tours throughout our beautiful country, Canada Rail Vacations has assembled a team of some of the best guides in the business. By booking a private tour, you’ll be the envy of the other guests aboard the train when you skip the buses and motorcoaches and instead have your own private vehicle and guide all to yourself.

On many occasions, our company founder Martin Flanagan will personally guide some private tours for our guests. Julian Perez de Camino in Canmore, Leif Bogwald on Vancouver Island, and Joe Urie in Jasper are a few of the other guides that we work with.

No matter who ends up guiding your tour, rest assured you’ll be shown the very best of Canada in whichever part of the country you wish to explore.  Private tours can be added to any destination in any one of our tour packages. If you request a Premium tour package, they are already included at every stop across the country. At time of booking, please ask one of our Vacation Planners about adding on a private tour to your trip.

Some features of our private tours are:

·        A private, comfortable vehicle.
·        A private, knowledgeable tour guide to attend to all of your needs.
·        Flexibility – your private tour can be customized to your sightseeing preferences. If you want to learn more about a specific area, we can make that happen for you.
·        Available for either one day, or every day, of your trip.
·        Timesaving, allowing you to maximize your sightseeing while in Canada.

Want to see what a private tour is really like? Here’s a video of Martin touring Faye and Rob on a private tour throughout the Rockies. This was filmed on a busy weekend during high season in the Rockies and he still managed to find private hidden gems that you won’t see with a large group:

We look forward to hosting you in Canada.
