Indian Summer holiday in Shimla plus Delhi and Chandigarh

Unlike many who offer holidays in India we have always encouraged our clients to go there during the Summer months.

It may be the monsoon season, but it doesn’t rain all the time, contrary to popular belief and it is a great time to visit India as it is lush and green, the plants come into flower and the birds are usually in their most colourful costumes, too.

This tour could almost be called a railway holiday as you travel mostly on very different kinds of Indian railways - first the lovely Shatabdi Express train up to Kalka and then on

the legendary toy train from Kalka to Shimla.

On the way you will do some sightseeing and shopping in India’s capital city of Delhi and also in Chandigarh, which it totally unlike any other Indian city and was designed by the French architect

le Corbusier, who utilised a grid system for all the city blocks, parks and commercial areas.  

This tour is a great introduction to India and also gently evokes the time of the British Raj
