Toy Train Tours in India, Danny Boyle, Michele Palin, Wes Anderson – they all have one thing in common – they fell in love with the train journeys of India. The country’s railway is unlike any other on the planet. It inspires the dreamers and the believers, shows you a part of the country that doesn’t make its way to those guidebooks and presents natural beauty at its dazzling best.
You can certainly become a part of these royal tours, in trains that were once royal carriages, enjoying old-school luxury at its entertaining best. That said, for a ‘real’ train experience, you have to board the ‘toy train’, a journey that winds its way up beautiful mountains passing so close to market stalls and houses that you could easily grab a dish or two!
The train itself is a spectacle to behold, but the children that run alongside, pointing and looking with amazed eyes, leaving spectators and passengers with a smile, makes your adventure even better. It is impossible not to be overjoyed. Toy train tours in India are not just about experiencing natural beauty or discovering Indian railways. There are the best ways to see the India that we always hear about, learn more about its beautiful culture and come closer to the locals.
