Darjeeling Tours | escorted rail tours | special interest tours | Indian Hill Railways

Darjeeling Tours for the best of Indian Hill Railways. We offer a range of Escorted tours and Add-ons to all of our itineraries so you can visit other parts of India, such as the magnificent

Taj Mahal or Kerala’s backwaters. It’s Indian Magic!

Most of our escorted rail tours include steam charters, and on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway there’s our exclusive dining charter plus a bus that follows the train along the line, so you can get those great shots of the locomotive in action. There’s plenty for partners to enjoy on our Indian train tours - group tours - and you’ll have time in each place to relax and explore.


In the hill stations, we stay in interesting heritage hotels such as the Windamere in Darjeeling or the Taj Savoy in Ooty - oozing with character! Each rail tour is accompanied by one of our experienced Tour Managers who will make sure that your holiday runs smoothly.


As well as holidays to India, we also occasionally run steam railway tours to other countries - currently Bhutan and the USA. We also run special interest tours such as our new holiday for 2014 - the Maine Two Footers.



California (September 2015) - something very special!

Saxony 2015 - NEW!


For your peace of mind, we’re a UK based tour operator and have run rail tours  for over nine years. We’re ATOL licensed, for your protection. When you contact us you’ll speak to a real person with lots of experience of travelling in India and we’ll personally make sure that you have an amazing holiday experience with us!
