A trip on the Rocky Mountaineer tourist train is one of the prizes on offer at a series of UK agent training events starting next week.

The luxury sightseeing rail operator has partnered with tourism boards, airlines and Holland America Line to hold its Western Canada & Southwest USA roadshows.

They will take place in Liverpool on September 5, Newcastle on September 6, Exeter on September 12 and Cardiff on September 13.

They will bring together Air Canada, United Airlines, Destination Canada, Travel Alberta, Destination British Columbia, Visit Utah, the Colorado Tourism Office and Holland America Line for an evening of education, food and drink, plus prizes, to help agents to build their product knowledge.

Rocky Mountaineer’s three routes in Western Canada visit the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

First Passage to the West is a two-day journey that connects Vancouver with Lake Louise and Banff; the two-day Journey through the Clouds travels between Vancouver and Jasper passing by Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies; and the three-day Rainforest to Gold Rush connects Vancouver and Jasper via Whistler and the historic gold rush area of Quesnel.

Clients frequently combine any of these train journeys with an Alaska cruise and itineraries featuring British Columbia and Alberta.

Rocky Mountaineer’s Rockies to the Red Rocks route (pictured) in the US southwest is a two-day journey that connects Moab, Utah with Denver, Colorado.

Typically clients build this journey into a wider touring itinerary through this region.

Steven Harris, Rocky Mountaineer’s UK & Europe sales director, said: “Our travel agent partners continue to be vital to Rocky Mountaineer’s success. At the September roadshows we are taking a holistic approach to learning – agents will be able to build their knowledge of our product but also learn more about how it fits into extended touring itineraries, and how they can best sell the regions in which we operate.”

Spot prizes will be won at each event, and all participating agents will be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets for a 2024 Rockies to the Red Rocks journey.

To attend one of Rocky Mountaineer’s Western Canada & Southwest USA Roadshows, agents should email Agents can register to attend up to the day before each event.

Tokyo Transport Guide

Tokyo has developed a dense network of metro, train and bus lines that serve the Greater Tokyo area. As Tokyo is a very busy city, the public transport is the best way to get around the city. With the multilingual signage and instructions, the public transport is very accessible for tourists.

The rail network dominates the public transport in Greater Tokyo. There are several companies which operate the most extensive rail network in the world. The 13 metro lines cover central Tokyo, especially the area inside the Yamanote circle, around Ginza and east of the loop line. The busiest stations are Shinjuku Station, Ikebukuro Station and Shibuya Station.

JR East is the largest railway company in the world. It provides most of the railway traffic in Tokyo, as well as, to other destinations in Japan. There are several other companies that provide commuter train service to the nearby area. The Shinkansen (Bullet Train) is fast train service that connects the major cities in Japan. The travel time from Osaka/Kyoto to Tokyo is about three hours.

The bus network is not heavily used in the city centre. It's more convenient for places outside the central area. They are not as frequent as the trains, but they are a good alternative if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) is the main one serving Greater Tokyo. It is located on the border between Narita and Shibayama, around 60 km from Tokyo. There are regular train, bus, taxi and private airport transfer services to Tokyo and the surrounding area.

Narita Airport is served by express and commuter trains. Narita Express is connected to Tokyo Station via the Narita and Sobu lines. The suburban JR rapid service train follows the same route to Tokyo Station with several intermediate stops which makes the travel time longer. Keisei provides train services to central Tokyo and the suburbs, as well.

Regular bus services run from Tokyo Narita Airport to the Tokyo City Air Terminal, major hotels and railway stations in the Greater Tokyo Area. Buses are generally slower than trains because of the traffic conditions. An overnight bus service to Kyoto and Osaka is available, as well.

The airport taxi service in Tokyo is fast and reliable. They charge by the meter and additional charges may apply for night rides.

To stay away from the crowds, it's best to book a private Tokyo Narita airport transfer with us. Our premium service includes a door-to-door airport transfer in comfortable and luxury vehicles at fixed cost. The English-speaking driver will meet you at the arrivals gate and take you directly to your hotel, and we hope you enjoy the airport transfer from Tokyo Narita Airport to Tokyo city centre.

Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) is the second one that serves Greater Tokyo. It is located closer to the city centre, around 14 km. There are regular train and bus lines that run to Tokyo. The latest prices for a private airport taxi from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Tokyo city centre are on the link.
