You’ll be the envy of the other guests aboard the train when you embark on your private sightseeing excursions.

Over the past 25 years of providing unforgettable tours throughout our beautiful country, Canada Rail Vacations has assembled a team of some of the best tour guides in the business. On many occasions, our company founder Martin Flanagan will be the private tour guide for our guests. In addition, Julian Perez de Camino, Max Schoeffel, Leif Bogwald, and Joe Urie are a few of the trusted, experienced guides on our team. All of our tour guides know how to showcase the very best of Canada in whichever part of the country you wish to explore. Their energy and exuberance is non-stop as they want to show you the very best there is to see in our country.

Private tours can be added to any tour package. They are included in our Premium Tour Packages, but are available to all of our guests. At time of booking, please ask one of our Vacation Planners about adding on a private tour to your package.

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. 
  •  The ability to be reserved for either one day of your tour, or every day of your tour. 
  •  Time-saving, maximize your sightseeing while on tour.
