Whether inspired by Channel 4’s popular Indian Summers series or simply always wanted to see the former British Hill Stations for yourself, this 21-day escorted tour is a real treat. Encompassing journeys on the three magnificent railways that once served these summer retreats - the Kalka Shimla Railway, the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and the Nilgiri Rack Railway - you’ll also visit the Sikh holy city of Amritsar, enjoy sightseeing in Delhi, travel to Agra’s iconic temple to love, the Taj Mahal, and much more. Departing 19 February 2017, Indian Hill Railways costs from £4,645 pp (two sharing) including flights (London), B&B, 16 lunches, 12 dinners, all rail journeys, transfers, excursions and admissions as per the itinerary, and the services of a tour leader from London and throughout the tour.
