I went a trip with my wife and 02 kids. We all had a gala time during the trip, whether it is on train or off. The most we loved was the food and butler service. The guides at sightseeing places were excellent and had good knowledge. Also the lunches and coaches provided at the time of sightseeing were very well.

My wife and I were looking for a long time for retirement and go on a tour to Palace on Wheels so went recently. It was Max Holidays who recommended us this trip and returning back I would highly appreciate it. I took the Super Deluxe room the higher category which was more luxurious then the basic ones. Throughout the journey we got personalised services during our sightseeing or onboard services. On the tour with Palaces of Wheels we were able to see a very different side of India. We had a very special and unforgettable trip as we wanted.
