The journey is very exciting with view of beautiful valley on one side and wonderful Darjeeling people on other side. You experience as if you are travelling in the most beautiful place. Please carry out reservation to avoid disappointment..

No sight seeing. Only busy dirty streets to be seen. Not worthy. Rather waste of time. It was a waste of time on the train. There was no sight seeing. It went through the busy streets of local market.

Dont waste your time here. We sat on the toy train and when it left it was terrible, firstly it was not very clean and secondly the route it takes stinks badly. I would recommend dont even visit Darjeeling for that matter... over crowded and dirty place its is.

Went to Darjeeling expecting a lot of this UNESCO world heritage site, reviews spoke about breath taking views, unfortunately I did not experience this.

The toy train in Darjeeling is a complete waste of time, money and energy. It is slow, noisy and polluting. The train stops in the war memorial for a mere 5 minutes, which is not enough to see the only nice spot on the way. The train moves through the narrow and already overflowing roads.

The journey is not as good as we expected. 30 minutes journey is just ok. Unluckily we have rain on that day
