Our worldwide tours feature visits to India, North and South America, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.
“Railways of the Raj” visits India, a country rich in culture and heritage with many reminders of the British Raj (reign). We travel on narrow gauge railways to visit Hill Stations, often using specially chartered steam trains, including the world famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. We visit the foothills of the Himalayas, areas of outstanding natural beauty, and important historic, religious, and cultural sites. A memorable and unforgettable experience awaits those who join this tour. We also offer "Golden Triangle with Shimla" and "Glorious Trains of India" as options for holidays in India.
We return to North America with “Colorado and the Rocky Mountains”. This extraordinary and breath-taking tour offers an opportunity to see many Wild West highlights together, in one holiday of a lifetime.
The “Andes of Colombia & Ecuador” tours two of the less well known countries of South America that are dominated by the Andes Mountains. We visit major cities such as Bogotá in Colombia and Quito in Ecuador. We use specially chartered trains, with steam haulage wherever possible, to travel to and through the Andes Mountains, including climbing the world-famous ‘Devils Nose’. There will be many opportunities for filming and photographing spectacular scenery, historic heritage, and unusual highlights.
“Peru & Bolivia” is a real cultural Andean feast. It visits the world famous Inca site at Machu Picchu; tours Cusco, the ancient capital of the Incas; and cruises on Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. It also includes travel by train over much of Peru’s railway system and on the ‘Expreso del Sur’, one of Bolivia’s few passenger trains.
In Sri Lanka, we explore many of the most attractive parts of the island by the “Viceroy Special”, specially chartered steam train.
