Luxury Train Journeys in India

Luke Kenny decides to take in some of the most famous sites in his beloved country of India. However, to avoid any possibility of an arduous journey, Luke takes a succession of luxury trains to smooth his passage. Beginning with a tour of Southern India aboard The Pride of the South, Luke travels through Karnataka and onto Goa. Next the Golden Chariot whisks him through Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Not tiring of the constant pampering, Luke bravely boards the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels for another punishing round of top class cuisine and soothing massages as the beautiful countryside and stupendous monuments of Rajasthan speed past. Throughout his travels Luke visits both the well known sites, such as the Taj Mahal, and the lesser known architectural wonders of India. For his last journey, Luke samples life aboard the Maharajas' Express, a relatively new luxury train operator and possibly the most exclusive yet. Will Luke have had his fill of luxuriousness at the end of his journey? Don't bet on it.
