LOCATIONS Delhi  Shimla  Kolkatta  Darjeeling 

On this extraordinary tour you journey from the cool misty hills of Shimla to the summer of Kolkata and the hills of Darjeeling. No other location in India captures the whole spirit of the colonial era like Calcutta. Escaping the heat of Calcutta, make your way up to Darjeeling, a former summer retreat of the East India Company, which still retains its former charms. Your stay here is arranged at Glenburn Tea Estate. Cosy up in planter’s bungalows and enjoy cream teas by the fire and tea plantation walks!

You can take this luxury holiday to India as is or we can create a tailor-made holiday for you to best suit your preferences.
