The gracious service, spacious cabins and exceptionally high quality of on board dining make this unparalleled voyage feel more akin to a moving hotel, than a train journey. 

This vast land lends itself perfectly to train journeys, with expert guides and excursions along the route which will illuminate the magnificent sights. You could take a trip around lesser-visited Gujarat, stop over at Ranthambore National Park in search of tigers, compare the contrasts of bustling Mumbai to the capital, Delhi, or visit the Portuguese-inspired coastline of Goa, where you’ll discover spicy cuisine and stunning beaches. 

Life on board Deccan Odyssey

Drawing inspiration from the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, the spa incorporates rejuvenation secrets, transforming the entire sojourn into a revitalising experience for the travellers.

Food
