Deccan Odyssey … Romancing India by Rail

Since the advent of the railways in India, train journeys have been the subject of much fascination and mystery. Indian Royalty and the British aristocracy would often set out on a shikaar or on celebrations, out in the wilderness or deserts or mountains, travelling in the luxury of their private palaces on wheels. Today, the Deccan Odyssey continues this legacy of princely sojourns by introducing fascinating journeys covering the length and breadth of the exotic and enchanting landscape of India!

Ripe with romance, adventure and style, each luxury rail tour with the Deccan Odyssey is a one in a lifetime experience. The juxtaposition of the traditional with the contemporary is beautifully presented through vintage cabins, gastronomic cuisines and lively off-board entertainment in each of the journeys.

Each journey on the Deccan Odyssey is an exploration of India’s diversity, exotic locales and the discovery of timeless traditions; taking one on a flight of fancy as you experience the vibrancy, colours, sounds and visual sensations as the train moves through varying regions and rural countryside. Mysteries, intrigues unfold as the train snakes her way through Royal cities showcasing the opulence and extravagance of the palaces, the traditions and culinary wonders of cities and villages well protected from the sands of time.
