I had a wonderful time travelling to India on Deccan Odyssey luxury train. The train took us to all the important destination of India according to my interest. Everything was well arranged prior, we didn’t had to make any efforts. The sightseeing places were really interesting, most importantly being treated as king’s and queen’s. The food was really delicious and served several cuisines. I had a marvellous time.
