There is something truly unique in the exhilaration of travelling by train in India, an experience that engages the senses and immerses you in the wonders of this mystical land.
Discover spectacular landscapes, dominated by leafy plantations that give way to bustling cities, a dazzling display of exotic wildlife and a wide range of historic monuments all from the comfort of your choice of luxurious trains.
India’s diverse landscapes and cultures are united by colour, which controls every aspect of life. From the infusion of green spices and tea leaves, to the treasure trove that is the painted blue city of Jodhpur and from the Taj Mahal’s white marble, meticulously inlaid with semi-precious stone, to Delhi’s imposing Red Fort, travelling by train with Planet Rail allows you to tour through the incredible palette of India.
We have just returned from our holiday to Venice. In short, we had a wonderful time, and all the arrangements worked very well. The trains all ran pretty much to time, and we found them all comfortable. The hotel in Venice was particularly nice. The staff were friendly, and it was in a beautiful situation – away from the crowds, but within easy walking distance of all the sights. It was nice to walk about the area of the hotel, and see ‘residential’ Venice at work. The hotels on the way there and back were fine, and we were blessed with beautiful weather for the morning we were at Montreux, so had a wonderful walk along the lakeside. Thank you again – I’m sure we will be coming back to you for future holidays.
