The train journey was amazing and well worth the time it takes, Clarke's Hotel was wonderful with great service and staff excellent bar with cocktails and central location. we did not eat in the hotel preferring to explore Shimlar and eating local food.

The whole area was full of wildlife and lots of History. Our tour was slightly different as the Prime Minister was in town so this changed things, but the guide adapted and we had a lovey time.

Highlights were the toy train journey and walking round Shimlar and eating the local foods

Hi, loved seeing both Shimla and Amritsar. Both, not to be missed! Once we got to each.
Toy train up from Shimla is incredibly long and also uncomfortable, and crowded on the day we travelled.
Might be worth having an option to do only part toy train and part bus transfer, although road is under re-construction and this is making journey more uncomfortable, even by bus, at the moment. It depends how much of the toy train journey you are keen on doing. It's a very long travel day up to Shimla from Delhi.
Both places involved long journey. Misleading info. on itinerary, in that it says 'morning at leisure' before leaving Shimla for Amritsar train, but in fact we had to leave by 9.00/9.30 (just after breakfast) and it was a whole day travelling. People need to know this, and be prepared for. Arrived in Amritsar - 7.30/8.00 pm
Woodville Palace very interesting/charming hotel, loved it, apart from the fact that all public rooms, including dining room were freezing; to the extent of wearing hat and coats down for breakfast. More heating needed, or more clothes!
Our decision not to go up to the Border was a good one for that part of tour. We opted instead to go back to the Golden Temple at night - incredible..... If you can do both, all well and good, if not we would say just do the temple.

My husband and I added this trip to the North India Explorer in January this year and it ddefinitely enhanced our holiday experience, because it enabled us to see a bit more of North India. We enjoyed the train ride up to Shimla, and exploring this relic of the Raj. Amritsar gave us threee very interesting and different experiences: visiting the site of the massacre and learning about it and its influence on the push for independence, the Golden Temple, a wonderful oasis of calm and welcome, and the exhuberant theatricality of the border ceremony at Wagha.
