Trains have the ability to take you in an era now lost to the world- an era of royal hospitality, legendary service and contemporary comfort. Sample some of the world’s best luxury rail tours with us. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, with its 1920s vintage cars, is the world’s most authentic luxury train. Made famous in the Agatha Christie story, the train still runs on the legendary route from Paris to Istanbul. The Royal Scotsman is a standout train and one of our favourites in the world. A small venue – just 36 passengers – it’s great for those who wish for a more intimate, luxury setting with gourmet, five-star dining, wine-pairing and superior service. The Deccan Odyssey is one of the subcontinent’s most luxurious trains; its cars, built in 2003, have been upgraded with new carpet and bedspreads recently, according to our ground suppliers. These improvements, which we recommended last year, bring this train up to “luxury” status, because its staff, service, amenities and food were already superb. The Palace on Wheels, with its cream-colored livery, is a joint venture of Indian Railways and the state of Rajasthan’s tourism office. Starting service in 1982, it was India’s first hotel train and has been gaining in popularity ever since. It is one of its kind experience because of its unique itinerary.
