Welcome to Geoff's Trains. We are a specialist tour operator offering train journeys, train themed holidays and heritage steam train tours in Great
Britain and overseas for both tourists and railway enthusiasts. Our photographic holidays explore the history, scenery, railways and wildlife in a
number of fascinating destinations.

Geoff Cooke owns Geoff's Trains and personally hosts his tours. This gives the assurance that you will be cared for by the same person who
planned your holiday and steered it to success. Geoff is an experienced photographer and his tours are excellent photographic holidays.

The Geoff's Trains portfolio includes tours where fun train rides take you to places of historic, cultural and scenic interest on a fully hosted holiday
that is more personal than a coach tour and more relaxed than independent travel. Our small group holidays normally run with between 10 and 24
participants with many guests returning year after year, ideal for photographers looking for a holiday that works equally well for their partner .

Also offered are tours especially designed for those who would like to travel on and photograph some of the world's last steam trains as well as
some that offer rare mileage. Geoff Cooke is recognised as an Africa expert and it is no co-incidence that his steam charter tours often feature
that continent.
