Summer holidays are all very well, but nothing guarantees a warm glow more than having an autumn escape in the diary.

Tick India’s Golden Triangle off the bucket list on this 19-day tour that takes in rail journeys on the spectacular Kangra Valley and Kalka Shimla Railways (part of which is by private steam charter), sightseeing in Agra, Amritsar, Dharamsala, Delhi and Jaipur, and wildlife-spotting during three safaris in Ranthambore National Park.

Departing 28 October, the price is from £4,795 pp (two sharing), including flights (London), B&B, 15 lunches & seven dinners, all rail journeys & excursions, and UK tour leader.
