Take a train journey which relives the opulent lifestyle of Indian kings, disembarking by day to discover some of India’s most magnificent sights and retiring onboard at night in palatial, luxurious coaches.

This is an enchanting train journey, recreating a bygone era of India’s former Maharajahs. The Palace on Wheels offers a truly regal experience. Ornate ceilings, lavish saloons and immaculately dressed attendants await you after a day’s visits to glorious forts, palaces and national parks.
