The royal places beckon you on Udaipur Luxury Tours
Central Delhi, India
Morning and the royal Maharajas Express enters Udaipur, Venice of the East. Guests enjoy a lovely breakfast on board looking forward to the delight of the Udaipur Luxury Tours. First is a visit to Lake Pichola, one of the five lakes of the city where guests enjoy a boat ride with a difference: it is done the way kings of yore used to do. The refreshing morning boat ride is followed by a trip to the City Palace. This is truly one of the most memorable Palace on Wheels, Rajasthan visits. Built by Maharana Udai Singh the Palace overlooks the Lake. Guests enter through the main entrance, the Hathi Pole, walk to the Big Gate or Bari Pol and then onwards to the Triple Gate or Tripolia opening to a magnificent vista of cupolas, balconies and towers. Guests wander around the Peacock Square and admire the blue glass peacocks set into the wall on their way to the Museum displaying armoury, weapons and other royal artifacts. Manek Mahal contains a lovely collection of glass and mirror art. Krishna Vilas showcases delicate miniature paintings whereas Moti Mahal has some of the most beautiful mirror work. Fabulous and enchanting, the Palace keeps guests entranced and time passes delightfully.
Next is a visit to the unique Crystal Gallery in the Fateh Prakash Palace as part of the enchantingly royal Udaipur luxury tours. This is perhaps the only one of its kind in the world displaying a lovely collection of glass crystal items such as beds, dining tables, dressers, sofa sets and fountains. Even the carpet is studded with jewels. It is time for lunch served royally in the gracious ambience of the Satkar Hall of Fateh Prakash Palace. Guests return to the world's most luxurious train, the Maharajas Express for some rest, taking in a visit to the Center for Miniature Paintings. Guests have free time to take optional tours or explore the city. This Palace on Wheels, Rajasthan's pride, departs from Udaipur for the next royal destination.
