Indian culture has train travel as probably the most reliable mode of transport and here at Tailored Journeys we believe it is the most rewarding experience.
Apart from the regular sleeper train and mountain railway, there are plenty of luxury train journeys for you to travel in India with a different perspective. On a week long journey, you are sure to cover much more than what can be done on a car.
These trains mostly travel during the night and days are for sightseeing in small groups with specialist guides. In some of the trains, there is an option of private tours and transfers whilst meals are enjoyed with fellow passengers.
The most popular journey is the famous ‘Palace on Wheels’ which follows a set itinerary covering the ‘Golden Triangle’, a bit of wildlife and some less explored parts of Rajasthan in style.
For a more luxurious option, Maharaja Express offers a blend of royal ambience with modern facilities. Its ‘Indian Panorama’ journey covers the classic north India including Taj Mahal. This newest train has five different routes covering Rajasthan and areas around. If you wish to explore the less visited parts of India ‘Deccan Odyssey’ is the most suitable covering many hard to travel parts of county that have changed a little.
There are six journeys to choose from and all of them provide real insights into alternate India. Most of these train journeys end in either Delhi or Mumbai, making it easy to take a flight to a beach destination for some R&R.
Our specialists have done extensive train travel in India and can guide you to choose a suitable journey.
