Tourcan Vacations has been appointed the North American GSA for the luxury Palace on Wheels train that operates in India.

“We are honoured to represent this majestic train that has been operating in Rajasthan (in collaboration with the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation) since 1982.  The train took second place in the Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards in 2023 as one of the Best Train Trips in the World," the company said in a press release. 

The seasonal train that operates between September and April every year provides luxurious cabins, state-of-the-art facilities, iconic Indian hospitality, and a crafted signature itinerary.

The train consists of 14 coaches each named after a former princely region of Rajputana.  There are 39 Deluxe Cabins and 2 Super Deluxe Cabins all inspired by the dynasties of Rajasthan and come with ensuite facilities.

The seven-night, eight-day itinerary starts and ends in Delhi and covers: Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur (Ranthambore), Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bharatpur and Agra.  

There is plenty of sightseeing and experiences offered during the journey including the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Amber Fort in Jaipur, a camel safari in Jaisalmer, Chittorgarh Fort, a visit to Ranthambore National Park and a boat ride on Lake Pichola in Udaipur.  

And, along the way clients will enjoy regional cuisine in beautifully-appointed carriages decked out in Indian Textiles.  All sightseeing excursions and meals are included.

For those who may not want to do the entire journey, they can join the train at one of its many stops and do only a portion of the itinerary.  (Subject to availability).

The Palace on Wheels offers modern conveniences, comfortable appointed beds and furnishings, and large glass windows to view the countryside as you relax on one of the most iconic train journeys in the world. 

"The Palace on Wheels will make you feel like royalty," said Tourcan. 

Tourcan Vacations has a special promotion on right now. Bookings made for specific departures in September and October will qualify for 50 per cent off for the second person traveling. This applies to those doing the seven-night journey in deluxe cabins only.
