Palace on Wheels , Vacations & Group Discounts
Palace on wheels Till the 1980's, that is, when the Indian Railways and Rajasthan Tourism got together to resurrect some of these forgotten symbols of India's historic heritage. Thirteen carriages from different princely states were brought together and refurbished, and the Palace on Wheels was launched. A superb train that evokes the past but has every modern facility and offers a journey of a lifetime, to people from anywhere in the world - making them feel like royalty during their week-long journey.

For, along with the restored carriages - some still glowing with their original teakwood panels intact - are liveried attendants, royal repasts from the attached kitchen, a lounge, and a dining car. The tour has a fixed itinerary. The journey begins and ends in Delhi. En route, the train Tours through princely Rajasthan, Jaipur, Chittaurgarh, Udaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Bharatpur as its principal highlights. Each morning, guests wake up to bed-tea and breakfast on board. After this, one can opt for a hot water bath, and then visit the town that the train halts in, to see the sights and colors of Rajasthan. The forts, palaces and temples, the bazaars thronging with people, the incredible, amazing celebration of colour. At nighttime the Tourers sleep in their own palace on wheels, and by day they tour the royal heritage of Rajasthan. It is an experience not to be missed.

The Palace on Wheels had become so popular and there is and would always be resistance to any move to discontinue it. The result was a spanking new train that faithfully recreated the old one, but is much more comfortable, and intended to provide a smoother ride. However, this too was on the meter gauge being used for yet another exotic journey in the form of the Royal Orient Express that Tours from Delhi to parts of Rajasthan, but is used primarily to discover the neighboring state of Gujarat.

The new Palace on Wheels, on broad gauge, is clearly the pride of the Indian Railways. It is luxurious, and it is modern. The coaches have different names derived from the former princely states and that provides the link for the coat of arms and the decor inside. The rooms and corridors are carpeted, the furniture inlaid and upholstered especially for the train. Within each carriage are comfortable showers, built-in wardrobes with full-length mirrors, overhead and night-lights, piped music, service bells and a public address system. Blinds drape large windows, which frame views across the desert and the passing arid landscape. At the end of each coach is a lounge.

Wood paneled walls, painted stained glass skylights, and liveried attendants who respond to every call, make the experience of the journey memorable. However, the vestibule coaches also connect with two restaurants, the Maharaja and the Maharani, and the bar where a range of cocktails is on offer. Damask tablecloths drape the tables, and the rear romantic lights and exclusive tableware make the perfect setting for Indian, Continental, and occasionally Chinese meals, served on board. The service is unobtrusive, attentive, and efficient.

This, then, is the way the maharajahs must have Toured. It certainly is the way an exclusive of world Tourers chooses to relax. And if the journey aboard the Palace on Wheels is rewarding enough, the points of arrival in Rajasthan - Bharatpur, Jaipur, Chittaurgarh, Udaipur, and Sawai Madhopur (for visiting the Ranthambhore National Park) are like the icing on the cake. For sheer romance, the Palace on Wheels must be the most luxurious way to see Rajasthan. But how could one expect any less from a country like India, and a state like Rajasthan, where history is not just a figment of the past, but a vibrant part of the living present.
