From small steam-powered lines in the mountains to major
intercity routes, India boasts the largest railway network of any
country in the world. With so many miles of tracks, it is perhaps
not surprising that there is also a fantastic collection of Indian
luxury trains. In our fabulous collection of rail
holidays to India, we utilise some of these splendid trains -
with each of them harking back to a magnificent bygone era of rail
The exact facilities vary slightly between trains, but each
offers a similarly glamorous experience. Meanwhile, the Deccan
Odyssey is celebrated for its brilliant range of both Indian and
international cuisine, and the Golden Chariot includes a spa
carriage offering some great pampering and relaxation treatments.
When these factors are combined with the trains' opulent interiors,
you are bound to feel like royalty during your time on board.
What's more, our array of holidays on Indian luxury trains also
include an outstanding programme of excursions. Whether you are
eager to see the breathtaking Taj Mahal - commonly regarded as one
of the Seven Wonders of the World - or are more excited by the Agra
Fort, our tours take in many of India's most famous sights. We also
discover some of India's lesser-known treasures too; by travelling
along the railway network, we see much of India that generally
remains hidden from the view of tourists. Such excursions include
the abandoned 16th century city of Fatehpur Sikri and the immense
Meenakshi Teple in Madurai. We also get glimpses of local culture
in this colourful country, with activities such as tiger-spotting
or watching the traditional dancers in Kerala.
All of our holidays are led by a professional Tour Manager, so
you can simply relax and absorb the fantastic atmosphere on board
one of the Indian luxury trains. As most meals and the exciting
packages of excursions are all included, you can feel like royalty
on board a glamorous train for a great value.
