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.

AVAILABLE FROM:

Throughout the year. Best season March till November.

TESTIMONIALS

I would like to say a huge thank you for organising our holiday to India. It was an astonishing trip. All the arrangements, flights, coaches, hotels were perfect. Our guides in both Kolkata and Delhi were fantastic. Rajeev took great care of us and made sure everything was perfect.

Mr. & Mrs. Hickey
Family group tailormade tour to North India

Witnessing the Taj Mahal at sunrise was an emotional experience…we would definitely travel with you again.

Mr. and Mrs. Harrison
Tailormade North India

Just a quick report on the trip! You are a hard act to follow, having lead the first two trips so superbly, but Tilak did you (and us ) proud! He was un-flappable, cool, calm and courteous, extremely helpful, and showed a great sense of humour….what more could one ask? I was very grateful for his help when my camera was stolen, also when I locked my keys in my suitcase.
