Welcome to Enthusiast Holidays                                                            


This year should have been all about KENYA - see tour programme pages with information on this landmark tour, agreed with Kenyan railway authorities and scheduled for November 20 - December 7, 2014, but now cancelled because of terrorist activity. FRANCE and SWITZERLAND with 241P17 - 2014 programme; BULGARIA and ERITREA both on the back burner for the time being; new dates to be advised; Colorado in the Fall, now September 2015 due to lack of steam on RGSRR
