Palace on Wheels

Travel through India in the style of the Maharajas

If you've ever dreamed of exploring India's cultural treasures whilst travelling in the style of the Maharajas, the Palace on Wheels brings those dreams to reality.

Indian Adventure

The Palace on Wheels transports our guests on an odyssey that begins and ends in the colourful and hectic city of Delhi, where ancient forts, mosques and bazaars meet twenty-first century shopping malls, gourmet restaurants and a host of fascinating museums and monuments.

From here, this remarkable train takes our guests on a voyage that highlights India's remarkable heritage, culture and scenic landscapes. From the stunning and historic forts at Jaipur and Chittorgarh, to the tiger-country jungle terrain of Sawai Madhopur and Ranthambore National Park, every destination on the route taken by the Palace on Wheels is truly stunning. This incredible tour culminates in a visit to Agra's most famous site: the iconic Taj Mahal. This seventeenth-century white-marble mausoleum, built in memory of the third wife of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and unmissable for the sublime beauty of its  Mughal architecture.

Each Deluxe coach contains three cabins with their own lovely colour scheme.

The two Super Deluxe Cabins contain double beds, as well as a desk, an ottoman, and sofa chairs, creating a pleasant and private atmosphere in which to relax. All cabins on board the train are air-conditioned, and come with their own 'Khidmatgar', or attendant, to ensure your travel needs are met. Mineral water is also fully available to passengers throughout the journey, and there are a large selection of magazines and newspapers to peruse over breakfast - so you don't have to miss out on a thing.
