~Two Popular One-Day Tours on Sale Now ~

White Plains, N.Y., August 12, 2010 – Rail Europe Inc., the largest North American distributor of European rail products, has announced the Tour England 15% Off and 100% Relaxed promotion, offering travelers 15 percent off two popular tours: “Total London Experience,” now $116 USD per adult, and “Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge,” now $98 USD per adult.

The Tour England 15% Off and 100% Relaxed promotion is available for purchase from August 12 through October 28, 2010. Travel must take place from August 12 through March 31, 2011.

Each expertly guided tour provides travelers with transportation aboard a luxury air-conditioned touring coach, a traditional English pub lunch, plus entrance fees to top attractions. These tours coupled with a BritRail England Pass from Rail Europe make it easy to explore the best of England and save a few pounds.

The “Total London Experience,” offers a full-day of touring London’s most popular attractions, including 1,000-year-old Westminster Abbey, a drive down Downing Street, home to the Prime Minister; a walking tour of Covent Garden, famous for its fashionable boutiques, street performers and restaurants, as well as the Royal Opera House. Visitors will also cruise on the River Thames and enjoy superb views of London’s majestic riverside buildings. Plus, no trip to London would be complete without a flight on the London Eye – this breathtaking engineering feat is one of England’s most popular attractions – and a trip to Buckingham Palace to witness a picture-perfect Changing of the Guard.

The best of Old England awaits travelers who book the magical, “Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge” tour. Guests will visit 900-year-old Windsor Castle, the official residence of The Queen and the largest inhabited castle in the world, to explore the State Apartments and Semi State rooms furnished with royal treasures. Then the tour moves to the equally mysterious prehistoric monument, Stonehenge. Built about 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge’s precise orientation on the rising and setting sun is probably its most remarkable feature. The last stop on the full-day tour is beautiful Bath, offering some of the finest architectural sights in England, including the former Benedictine monastery. In Bath, travelers will visit the relaxing hot and cold Roman baths built over 19 centuries ago. The “Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge” tour also provides ample free time for shopping.

The Tour England 15% Off and 100% Relaxed promotion is applicable to all residents of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. For more information on the promotion or to make a reservation, visit www.raileurope.com or call 1-888-382-7245.
