New Specialist Tour Operator Enters New Zealand Market

Darjeeling Tours Ltd, a UK based tour operator, specialising in tours to India, has entered the New Zealand market. Darjeeling Tours, a UK based niche tour operator specialising in tours to India, has entered the New Zealand market providing exciting new opportunities for Special Interest holidays to this fascinating destination.

Sarah Thompson, Director of Darjeeling Tours, has recently returned to New Zealand from the UK where she has spent the last three years developing the company. "I'm very excited about bringing the company to New Zealand - India is an amazing destination. It is so rich in culture and experiences - there really is something for everyone." The company has been running for over nine years, and started off specialising in steam railway holidays to the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway in northern India - a UNESCO World Heritage site.

"We now offer a range of holidays, including railways, textiles, photography, history and cookery. People can travel within a group tour or we can design tailor-made holidays," said Mrs. Thompson.

Thompson also leads several tours a year to India. "I'm always surprised by India - it is changing so quickly, yet it retains its character and traditions. I love sharing this country with people!"

She says, "We are a small company, and we pride ourselves on our personal approach. Our group tours run with a maximum of 30 people, so we really get to know everyone. Many people come on several tours - they just love India and want to explore new places."

New Zealand is also a favourite destination for many Darjeeling Tours' UK clients. Currently on offer is a holiday for railway enthusiasts ("New Zealand Steam Adventurer") in April 2010 which travels the length of the country using several steam train charters and visits many of New Zealand's preserved steam lines.
