It was a once in a lifetime trip! Tour guides were highly knowledgeable. I loved the butler service in the train everything was available very easily. On this trip we were very lucky to see the tiger at Ranthambhore, the food was superb, the fold dance at the palace was great eve we joined them.

I travelled along with my husband to the Deccan Odyssey Indian Odyssey tour last October 2019. It was my best experience to see India in the train full of all the services. The guides and the driver were highly skilled and informative. The rooms were really beautiful and throughout the trip we felt like the royalties. The tour met all our expectations and it was the best trip of my life.
