Venkatesh : There are four luxury trains in India and from the three we consider ourselves to be elite as we take the visitors to heritage , wildlife sites  and beach in one go, which is not  offered by any other luxury trains. If you take a southern splendor package it will offer a trip to Mysore, Hampi and a heritage site.


We take visitors to see wild life in Mysore and then we take them to the beach in Goa, no other luxury train is having such facilities. Our trips last for 7 days.
