Top Ten India Classic Adventures

Ride the Palace on Wheels

Imagine being treated like a maharaja as you travel through Rajasthan. The Palace on Wheels, a luxury, air-conditioned train (more like a traveling deluxe hotel), operates from Delhi weekly through winter (September to April), taking in the major fort cities in Rajasthan—Udaipur, Jodhpur, Chittorgarh, and Jaisalmer—and also includes Agra with the incomparable Taj Mahal. Liveried staff ensure you are comfortable (no, pampered!), and most of the travel is at night, which leaves the days free to experience the sights and sounds of India's most exciting region. Check out for schedules, rates, and booking details.
