Indian Rail Odysseys by Steam and Narrow Gauge Railways
As Featured by Which? Travel Magazine

Spaces are still available on our two Indian heritage railway tours in 2015, a wonderful way to see the Sub-Continent and admire its railway and cultural history.

Our expertise as a specialist rail tour operator is recognised in November's issue of Which? Travel Magazine. We received a special mention in its Railway Holiday feature for our Connoisseur Tours designed for the rail enthusiast.

"Ffestiniog Travel has escorted enthusiasts on rail holidays for 40 years"

To illustrate the point the article referred to our 20-day Great Little Trains of India tour and described it as mixing "sightseeing with views of feats of railway engineering, including the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway".

There is still time to reserve your seat on our Indian Hill Railways tour and experience India's Colonial past or delve deeper into India's railway history as the 'Great Little Trains of India' tour rides the country’s remaining 2ft narrow gauge lines. Below are the edited highlights of both tours.
