“Step on board and the real world evaporates behind you” – a sentiment often voiced by travellers on the Belmond British Pullman train. Together with its sister train the Belmond Northern Belle, its magnificent period carriages enable guests to experience all the magic of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express without leaving Britain.

Having now returned from our 9 day break in Rome and Venice, we would like to thank you for all the arrangements you made on our behalf. The hotels were excellent, the transfers in Rome on time and with good drivers and cars. The Eurostar Italia transfer between Rome and Venice was on time, and the water taxi waiting for us on the Grand Canal, outside the railway station, made Maureen’s day – he was so charming and attentive, the only thing he didn’t do was sing! The water taxi on departure from the hotel in Venice was again on time and took us direct to the airport terminal and was fantastic. The holiday, which was taken at rather short notice, was a complete success, even the weather was good!! We will certainly use Planet Rail again. Many thanks.
