This year, Golden Eagle Luxury Trains is going big on India with two fabulous new rail adventures
introduced aboard the Deccan Odyssey: one in the north and another in the south.
There is no better way to travel through India than by luxury train. Golden Eagle passengers are invited to settle into their beautifully-appointed en suite cabin, to enjoy the convivial atmosphere of the stylish Bar Lounge Car and indulge in the fine dining offered in the on-board restaurant.
The Madras Mail offers the opportunity to join Golden Eagle’s president and founder Tim Littler on a one-off President’s Tour in celebration of the company’s 30th anniversary, and covers the very best of southern India, from Mumbai to Hyderabad. Discover a land of contrasts on this two-week rail odyssey across southern India, from vibrant cities to peaceful backwaters, and immaculate beaches to rolling foothills. Revealing a slower, peaceful and more exotic side of India, this special tour showcases India’s innumerable ancient monuments and spectacular World Heritage Sites.
Alternatively, the Darjeeling Mail travels coast to coast from Mumbai to Kolkata, taking in the hill plantations of Darjeeling, the bazaars of Delhi, the famous sites of Agra and spiritual Varanasi. Unravel the colour, character and diversity of India over 14-nights, with a two-night stay at the iconic five-star Taj Mahal Palace Hotel to kick off the tour. The adventure then steps up a gear, when guests climb aboard the beautiful Deccan Odyssey, their hotel-on-wheels.
