Indian Luxury Trains

Luxury Rail holidays in India

Introduction

Travelling on India's luxury trains is an ideal way to explore the country without sacrificing style and comfort. Rattle over the rails on a romantic, glamorous journey, enjoying regal service and arrive at a new destination to explore the following morning.

Maharajas Express

The Maharajas' Express is the newest luxury train in India and the first of its kind to offer journeys across the whole country. Offering four itineraries of six and seven nights, it takes passengers to some of the most exotic destinations in India, including Mumbai, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Agra, Delhi, Kolkata and Varanasi.

Promising a royal experience, you will be transported in classic style in a Deluxe Cabin, Junior Suite, Suite or Presidential Suite, with a team of well-groomed butlers on hand to assist you with anything you may need. The Maharajas Express also features two fine dining restaurants, a wood-panelled bar, a high-end boutique and an observation lounge with its own bar and game tables.

Palace on Wheels

Rajasthan's Palace on Wheels luxury train is India's answer to the Orient Express: modelled on the luxurious railways cars of old with richly decorated interiors and service-proud staff.

Travelling through the desert-edges of the former royal state of Rajasthan, usually at night to allow full days of sightseeing in magical cities such as Japiur, Udaipur, Jaiselmer and Jodhpur, the journey is a lavish experience with luncheons arranged in former maharajas palaces and richly decorated elephants and entertainers regularly greeting the train's arrival.

Camel treks and tiger safaris round out the week of activities, which culminates in a visit to the Taj Mahal at Agra before returning to New Delhi.

Deccan Odyssey

The super deluxe Deccan Odyssey has been modelled on the world's finest luxury trains and was launched primarily as a way to showcase the state of Maharasthra, along with a slice of Goa.

A weeklong journey will have you discovering medieval sea forts, golden beaches and Buddhist cave temples in royal style.

The Golden Chariot

The luxuriously appointed Golden Chariot links some of South India's greatest destinations, with a focus on the state of Karnataka: a world of ageless monuments, timeless temples and vibrant culture.

Named after the famous Stone Chariot in Hampi, The Golden Chariot is South India's first and only luxury train and operates from Bangalore. Offering two memorable itineraries: Pride of the South and Southern Splendour, in the course of eight days it takes one through South India's most sought-after destinations, in absolute luxury.

Royal Rajasthan on Wheels

For a journey through Rajasthan – the ‘Land of Kings’ – it’s only appropriate that you match the grandeur of its palaces and forts with the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels; its private cabins feature rich silk bedspreads and dark wood writing tables. This seven-night trip departs from Delhi to take in Ranthambore's tigers, Jaipur's pink city, the imposing Jodphur fort and the holy city of Varanasi before finishing with the mighty Taj Mahal.

Along the way, you’ll enjoy fine dining in the opulent restaurant cars and sip on premium vintages in the bar car. There’s even WiFi to help you stay connected.
