Each journey on the Deccan Odyssey is an exploration of India's diversity, exotic locales and discovery of her timeless traditions; where you breathe in the vibrancy, sounds and colours of India's cities and her countryside. Mysteries, intrigues unfold as the train snakes her way through royal cities showcasing the opulence and extravagance of the palaces, the traditions and culinary wonders of cities and villages well protected from the sands of time. Where else would you find a UNESCO heritage site, a superlative vineyard, tigers & lions lazing in the sun baked stretches of wild brush, a palace residence, warm dazzling beaches & cool tranquil backwaters… only in amazing India !
