Times have changed and winds have shifted, but the Palace On Wheels cruises along in its unique style, the kind only the Maharajas of yesteryears could have perpetuated and enjoyed. Today, of course, each traveller on board is treated like royalty in his or her own right.

The exquisite & exclusive Palace on Wheels has luxurious cabins, wall-to-wall carpeting, a well stocked bar, two dining cars, and a very personalised service. Infact everything that could comprise of heaven on earth for a whole week.

All passengers sing dance and make merry within the comfortable confines of the train. When the music is pulsating and spirits soaring, it is difficult to keep in control and you tend to go with the flow.
