Rail Tours in India

At Rail Discoveries, we want to make sure that you get the most out of your holiday. There are numerous excursions organised for you on our India rail journeys such as sightseeing tours of the cities, trips to lively and colourful markets, visits to impressive monuments and buildings such as the Taj Mahal and journeys into the idyllic foothills of the Himalayas. Excursions are often accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide and there is usually plenty of free time built into the tour so that you can explore places independently. You may wish to shop at the markets, visit museums and galleries or take a daring ride on a rickshaw, a common means of public transport in India.

Tours depart from London and to make things easier for you, we can organise rail connections at a specially negotiated rate from wherever you live in the UK. We can also sort out hotel accommodation in London if you wish to extend one of our India rail journeys. Furthermore, it is possible to upgrade your flight to India for an additional supplement and you should discuss this with your Travel Advisor when booking.
