Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: Arrive at Delhi and you are greeted at the airport by an Easy Tours Travel Facilitator and ushered to a chauffeur driven vehicle. Your arrival and departure airport/railway station transfers, planning and greeting services, and more, are all complimentary when you book your luxury train experience with Easy Tours.
We recommend arrive a day earlier as this allows you to recuperate from jetlag, and serves as insurance against international flight delays and cancellations. The cost of a pre-night and/or post night hotel stay can be included, as can additional sightseeing in Delhi or other destinations on the Indian Subcontinent.
Palace on Wheels journeys currently commence on Wednesday evenings, so we assume an arrival on that day, unless you are opting for arriving a day earlier.
Your chauffeur driven vehicle will be available to you until about 4 PM, when you are escorted to the train and welcomed for check in formalities.
