The luxury train travel concept originated in the British Raj when India’s status-obsessed Maharajas commissioned special carriages on the newly constructed railways. Opulently decorated with Belgian crystal chandeliers, French tapestries and Persian carpets, these rolling palaces became emblematic of the wealth and ostentation of the Princely States.

Aside from the supreme comfort, the main advantage of travelling in such a style is that you get to see and experience much more of the destination in comparatively a short time, moving from place to place in the night while you sleep in the comfort of your luxurious, air-conditioned cabins with ensuite facilities, lavish amenities white-glove service, gourmet cuisine. Your sightseeing at each port of call is conducted in air-conditioned vehicles in the company of experienced English-speaking guides.
