journey常指长途旅行,对交通工具没有明确指示 tour 常指短途旅行 travel 则多用于乘火车旅行

As mecland said, but I'd add to "travel" Not just train travel. Do you travel much? = Do you go places (distant places) any method Can not say "do you journey much?" Can say "Do you tour much?" as with mecland's meaning Does this job involve travel? Travel is my hobby. (any method) "Journey" has an idea of long distance, or difficulty or arduous. "Tour" has an idea of looking round more than one place. A music group will tour, or go on tour. That is, travel to multiple places as one journey.
