Why choose to see India by train?
It’s the most convenient way to visit multiple destinations in India. Touring in India can be confusing, chaotic and complicated. Travelling by road or by air to get to your next destination takes time better spent enjoying the sights themselves. Imagine travelling thousands of miles without the hassle of airport security checks and hotel check-in queues, transfers, packing and unpacking—in short not having to deal with all the things that take the fun out of travel.
The romance of travel by train is at its best in India thanks to its exciting new class of luxury trains, offering the style and service of the royal trains of the past, with 21st -century comforts. It’s virtually hassle-free. Wake up to a new destination each day, knowing meals, itineraries and guided tours are all included.
Travel on a luxury train is supremely comfortable. Guests can enjoy a variety of dining experiences in the restaurant cars, sleep in private air-conditioned cabins featuring full sized twin or double beds, picture windows, closets, en-suite bathrooms with a complete array of amenities, laundry service, daily housekeeping, and butler service. Everything is taken care of from the moment you get on board, so you can just relax and enjoy the journey in princely style following a variety of cultural itineraries.
TWX has a variety of luxury train options including the Maharaja’s Express, Golden Chariot, Palace on Wheels and Deccan Odyssey. Each has its own special itinerary.
Vintage train buffs will love the historic small-gauge steam engines of the Darjeeling Hill Railways which transport you back in time along the historic 86 km route past tea plantations and snow-capped Himalayan peaks. In the quaint hill station of Shimla you can ride the Toy Train. This is one of the most unique rail journeys in the world, with 20 stations, 102 tunnels and 864 bridges on its 96km track through the mountains.
