Collette highlights small-group tours that incorporate train travel for efficient connections between destinations and local points of view. The tour operator knows travelers want to maximize their time in each destination, and by utilizing travel by rail where available, it is just one way Collette puts their travelers first.

Collette shared that booking is currently open for its new small group Explorations tour “Essence of France,” which whisks travelers from romantic Paris to chromatic Provence and the sparkling French Riviera. And coming soon, Collette’s new tour, Mediterranean Coastal Journey, will offer travelers spectacular views through the Cinque Terre by local train.

“We look at incorporating train connections to enhance the traveler experience,” said Diana Ditto, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Collette. “Why spend extra hours on the coach when a train could cut that time in half? We value our travelers’ time and make that a priority, so when going by rail is the best way to the next destination on tour, we take it.”

On Essence of France, Collette travelers take the high-speed train from Paris to Provence. Within a few hours of saying au revoir to Paris, travelers arrive in the beautiful countryside to enjoy a wine tasting, and then find themselves enjoying their accommodations in Aix-en-Provence by the late afternoon. On the newly-released tour, “Mediterranean Coastal Journey,” travelers gain a unique perspective by taking the local train to explore the colorful cliffside villages of the Cinque Terre.

Small group tours like these make it a point to take travelers beyond the coach and implement unique modes of transportation to help travelers to the heart of a destination. Whether they’re zipping through the streets of Bangkok in a tuk-tuk, cruising in the back of a vintage taxicab in Dublin, floating down the canals of Venice in a gondola, exploring Lisbon in a private tram, or white water rafting down Montana’s Flathead River, these adventurers travel in style around the world.

Travelers can book all of Collette’s tours with confidence knowing that when they add Collette’s Travel Protection Plan, they will receive a full money-back refund if they need to cancel – up to 24 hours before departure. Please visit for more information.
