Group Trip

Hop on board The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and take a trip to a more glamorous time. The shimmering vintage carriages of the train bring to life golden age of luxury train travel. Belmond was founded by James B Sherwood in 1977. He collected vintage train carriages and cars, including Le Train Bleu and the Rome Express. It took considerable craftsmanship to restore these trains to their former glory. The midnight-blue cars took to the rails in 1982.  The Venice Simplon Orient Express has been a popular choice for luxury travellers ever since.

You can join a gay-exclusive trip on the Orient Express from Venice to Paris. All meals (including wine) will be provided. A major highlight of the trip includes spending a night in the Belmond Hotel Cipriani in Venice – one of the greatest hotels in the world. There’ll be a gala dinner at the Granaries of the Republic, Venice. You’ll be in a private cabin with a 24-hour cabin steward. Expect surprise entertainment in the evenings. This is a great way to experience the luxury and style of a bygone era.
